Is there any rag as cool as Inquest used to be?

Or are all the kids using this new-fangled internet-thingy?
 
I'm not sure a company even makes a magazine that regularly features magic.

Damn, that sucks. I loved getting the MTG specific inserts. Something not quite as cool about internet articles. But I understand.
InQuest was hardly cool. It had mediocre stratagy, misogyny, and a terrible price guide.
I didn't know they made paper any more.
My buddy used to get one of them. The only real cool thing he used to get out of it was when they would put promo cards from a few different tcgs as an insert. I have a cool Vegeta one from the DBZ tcg. Never played it, but it looks cool in my binder.

I remember it being pretty funny, but I was ... 15 or 16 at the time.
 
Inquest did indeed kick ass up til the advent of YUGIOH. Unfortunately, I've been unable to locate any trace of the minds behind the magazine in its glory days OTI.

I remember them giving Necropotence one star. When Urza's Destiny came out, I can assume their review of Necro II: Electric Bugaloo was a retraction.

The other thing I remember is troll humor. But this was no Oprah 9000. This was the weaksauce troll humor where you think the act of offending someone is inherently edgy.

Sometimes I really love the things you post Bay. May I point out though, that Electric Boogaloo was almost universally acknowledged as the superior product of that franchise, whereas both of the cards you posted are seriously broken. Broken. Breakin'. I feel like I should be able to make a joke out of that. Too tired. Long day.

Black Serra creature would have vigilance and fear. It would basically be Batman.

Pretty much the internet killed any reason for a tcg based magazine. The magazines could not even stay up to date the game moves so fast.

NU, MY JOKE.
I always enjoyed InQuest, especially after they expanded from being a strictly Magic magazine.  And while the humor was not brilliant, I think they mostly did it that way to appeal to the target audience, which was teenage boys.  And yes, they rated Necropotence poorly, but I don't remember anyone immediately seeing the potential of it, til someone broke it.  This happens with cards from time to time. 
Necropotence was initially released into an environment ridiculously hostile to its existence. Mostly because Black Vise was legal and everywhere. And if there's any card that kills Necropotence, it's Vise.

Cosmo is to, um, marital relations, what certain forumites are to card design.
