Low Market — Zada Spellslinger

The Daily Grind Here on Low Market, we do our level best to balance out what sorts of budget decks we build, in terms of both colors used and highlighted archetypes. Unfortunately, there are occasional deficiencies. Today we push the pendulum back towards equity by shining the spotlight on an underused color (mono-red) in a […]

Low Market – Pauper Commander Double Feature

Gilder Bairn art by Nils Hamm Buy One Get One Free Today on Low Market we stray slightly from the path of pure-blooded Commander. I love Commander in all – well, most – of its expressions, and I am nothing if not equitable. Today, we turn our budget deckbuilding eye to Pauper Commander!   The […]

Low Market — Alesha Cycling

The Cycle Unbroken My love of the cycling mechanic is well-documented. How well-documented? Well, I mentioned it at least once, in the cycling subsection of my Hapatra article. What? That’s not enough documentation for you? Fine! Then I’ll make an entire list based around cycling, and I’ll base it on one of my favorite Commander decks: Alesha […]

Low Market — Sydri Aetherflux Storm

Something’s Brewin’ At one point in building an EDH deck, you have to stop and think about how to kill your opponents. Sometimes it’s with your big angry commander (see: Rafiq of the Many). Sometimes, it’s with your big angry Fireball (see: Mizzix of the Izmagnus). Sometimes, it’s with your big angry horde of tokens (see: Rhys the […]

Low Market — Ravos + Tymna Cleric Tribal

The Choice is Clear-ic Welcome back one and all to Low Market, and my apologies for my absolutely awful section-title pun.

Low Market — Roon Energy

The Realm of Possibilities In Low Market’s long, storied, two–prior-articles history, we began with a commander, and then worked our way around to a theme. Today, we’re going to walk on the wild side and approach deck building from a different direction: choose a theme and find the commander that suits it best. Now, if […]
