Intellectual Offering — Ghoulcaller Gisa

After a close encounter with Queen Marchesa’s thugs last week I decided to travel somewhere a little less politically charged. As dropping in unannounced is always considered rude I wrote ahead to a friend I’d met on a plane known as Innistrad. My Dearest Gisa, How long has it been since we last connected? It […]

Intellectual Offering – Queen Marchesa

While the new commanders have started taking off, I don’t feel compelled right yet to make them an offering. With people becoming more and more aware of this wonderful site they’re also becoming better at building around new commanders as they come out. People have nailed the important stuff for Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, with […]

Intellectual Offering — Amonkhet Edition

With the release of a new set there comes the inevitable scramble to brew with the latest legendary creatures. For me though, that hype just isn’t there. It takes me a little longer to warm up to the latest and greatest. What I do really enjoy is finding the new cards that go into old […]

Intellectual Offering — Brion Stoutarm

With each new set we must begin again the process of evaluating the new cards. This can either take some time if the card is very complex or be quick if it’s extremely straightforward; Paradox Engine was the later. This card was easy to evaluate, or so I thought. It’s insanely powerful. It does bonkers […]

Intellectual Offering — Yahenni, Undying Partisan

[Editor’s Note: The original release of this article used the pronoun ‘it’ to refer to Yahenni; however, that was this editor’s change and not the author’s. The author’s original use of ‘they’ has been restored.]  Let me be straight with you for a minute, readers. I am very new to writing. Such a shock, I know. Therefore, this […]

Intellectual Offering – Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

Since this series is about breaking down the results on EDHREC, why not take it one step further and take a deeper look into a popular commander? Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is the most popular Orzhov commander on the site with 538 decks (at the time of writing). As a commander, she lends herself towards a […]

Intellectual Offering — Vial & Thrasios

Last week we introduced the idea of the Precon Effect wherein a card’s occurrence in a deck list is perpetuated by its initial inclusion in one of the preconstructed commander decks. Players entering their nearly unaltered pre-constructed decks into Tappedout or Deckstats databases increases the occurrence of those cards in the list and makes them more likely […]

Intellectual Offering — Breya, Etherium Shaper

That’s right; Commander 2016 is here, and that means it’s time to proclaim your favorite commander as fast as possible lest someone else in your playgroup snaps them up. Time to begin the never-ending process of tweaking and reassembling that comes with a new deck. Everyone has their opinion of what cuts to make and […]
