Partner Focus —Tana, the Bloodsower

Shout out to those 1/1 Saprolings! While Tana, the Bloodsower doesn’t have the same immediate impact on the board state as the ubiquitous Avenger of Zendikar, now all you belligerent botanists and red-loving hydroponics engineers can role play a commander that suits your interests.

Welcome back to Pure//Simple, the article series that tries to take the mystery out of card choices. Knowing what cards are good in Commander is one of the first steps towards becoming well-versed in the format, but knowing why certain cards are good is even more important.

EDH Political Science — Atraxa in a Pantsuit

In politics, everything is a weapon to be used against you. Each picture unravels your personality, each statement twisted to abomination, and each decision you make could be your last. In Magic: The Gathering, each card you draw brings you closer to the bottom, each attacking creature leaves you vulnerable, and each spell could be […]

Burning Inquiry — Yelling “YOLO” with Yidris

I’m getting old and irrelevant FAST. However, being a high school teacher does keep one fresh to the way young people talk (pause while young people everywhere groan). Furthermore it affords you the opportunity to exercise patience and eventually summon language years beyond its appropriate use. Believe that there is joy in telling a room full of teenagers, “This […]
