In the Margins — Fog

Currently, there are 2,536 decks in the EDHREC database running Fog, and not a single one of them should have it as part of the 99. Welcome back to In the Margins, a periodic column where I make grandiose, dismissive statements about decent, playable cards like Fog. And Fog is absolutely playable. It’s got a […]

In the Margins — Clone

Currently there are 5,363 decks in the EDHREC database running Clone, and not a single one of them should have it as part of the 99. Once again I’m lying. Clone is fine and there are probably decks that want every clone effect possible. There might be one at the end of this article. I […]

Ixalan EDH Review — Blue

Ixalan is upon us, in all its colorful, dino-riding, neck-biting, treasure-hunting glory. It’s a bright colorful set dominated by four distinctive tribes all chasing after an elusive lost city of gold. And given their toned-down presence it’s possible that maybe, just maybe this world will be left in one piece when we move on in the spring […]

News — Change to the legendary rule

The Bearer of News This week we were hammered with a barrage of Magic-related news ranging from changes to the banned/restricted list for Vintage to coverage of the Ixalan leaks from earlier in the summer. Snuggled cozily in between all of that, however, is probably the most EDH relevant bit of information: “Starting with this […]

Commander 2017 — A Brief History of Vampires

“He thought, in fine, that the dreams of poets were the realities of life.” The first pack of Revised I ever opened contained a Sengir Vampire. At the time it was a bomb card. A 4/4 flyer for five was insane. Better hope you draw that Shivan Dragon, son. Still, the power level of the card […]

EDHREC Spoiler Coverage — Blood and Iron

“To make you a vampire they have to suck your blood. And then you have to suck their blood. It’s like a whole big sucking thing.” Buffy Summers Day three of Commander 2017 spoiler week leaned heavily into vampires starting off in the wee hours of the morning with our first Mardu bloodsucker legend.

In the Margins — Beseech the Queen

Currently there are 5,860 decks in the EDHREC database running Beseech the Queen, and not a single one of them should have it as part of the 99. Okay, that’s not entirely true. And by not entirely true I mean not even partially true. Beseech the Queen is a solid card and there are a […]

Currently there are 3,339 decks in the EDHREC database running Naturalize, and not a single one of them should have it as part of the 99.
