EDHREC Dominaria Set Review — Colorless, Artifacts & Lands

Dominaria is teeming with nostalgia, so much more so than that Masters set specifically designed to celebrate Magic’s past (I’m looking at you Masters 25). Dominaria is also teeming with great Commander options, from its startling number of legendary creatures, to its seemingly endless supply of fantastic support cards. While I’m not discussing the myriad […]

Pure // Simple — Lose Weight, Not Games Part Two

Pure // Simple — Lose Weight, Not Games

It’s 2018, and with the new year comes a whole slew of quickly broken New Year’s resolutions.

Welcome back to Pure//Simple, the article series that explores the […]

Pure//Simple — Where Are They Now?

I started playing Commander in 2010, about a year before it was even called Commander—when Wizards officially acknowledged the format with the release of Magic: the Gathering-Commander.

Welcome back to Pure // Simple, the article series that takes the mystery out of card choices in Commander. Commander is usually a game of attrition.
