Weird Harvest — A New Hope…of Ghirapur!

Welcome back to Weird Harvest, where we strive to weaponize jank to our strategic advantage. This week I figured we would take a break from our regularly scheduled programming to spotlight a deck building concept that is the embodiment of jank. It’s no secret that artifacts are a critical component of our format, with just […]

Weird Harvest — Cyclonic Rift is my Commander!

Welcome back to Weird Harvest, the column devoted to all things jank. This week we have our sights set on an Esper commander that tries to do something on its color identity. I know, the notion shocked me as well when it initially occurred to me. As I contemplated this thought for a bit it […]

Weird Harvest — The Truth is Out There…

There’s something to be said about the unexpected. Since our format is predominantly multiplayer, it has the potential to yield some hilarious results. There’s also something janky about the idea of setting our opponents up to expect one thing and then hit them with another. I recently caught up on a bunch of episodes of […]

Weird Harvest — Hail to the King, Baby!

Last time on Weird Harvest we explored the new lands of Ixalan with Captain Lannery Storm. This week I thought we would do something a bit different and step away from red and cover a mono-colored deck that is similar, but different enough in focus that it isn’t a rehash. Who needs to turn trash into […]

Weird Harvest — Turning Trash into Lannery’s Treasure

Pirates are here. Granted, they’ve been here but they haven’t really been a “thing”, if you know what I mean. Ixalan is finally upon us and we have all been summoned to explore the open waters to new uncharted lands. Lands filled with dinosaurs, lawful evil vampires, pirate Vraska, and half-naked Jace. Yes, it seems […]

Weird Harvest — Forget Cruel Control, this is Gruul Control!

Hello all and welcome back to Weird Harvest, the column that’s committed to keeping commander janky. Last week we fulfilled a reader request for a tribal treason deck, but this week I wanted to shift gears and try something that some of you may have never seen before. I’m sure that most of you are […]

A message from Don, the founder of EDHREC: In this article, Chris is going to go through our new features on EDHREC that revolve around “themes”! I’m really excited about it because there are so many fun hidden archetypes and this should make it easier to find them. Tribes were our first theme and those were […]

Weird Harvest — Pharika, Plague Politics

Hello everyone and welcome to the first installment of Weird Harvest. Over the course of this series I hope to impress upon all of you one of my favorite elements of EDH, and that is using jank during our build process to disrupt our opponents. You may ask yourself, “Why would I ever intentionally put […]
