EDHREC Rivals of Ixalan Set Review — Gold and Colorless

Blue/Green Merfolk Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca — If you read the stories on the Wizards web site, then you know that the Kumena character is actually a minor villain. If you don’t read the stories, then maybe you could infer that by the word “Tyrant” and the way his manic smile resembles Jared Loughner’s mug […]

Commander UNFocus — Grusilda, Monster Masher

Do you enjoy forcing your opponents to put all their cards in the graveyard so that you can rummage through it and pick the best stuff to use for yourself? The Scarab God does. Would you like to mash two of the best dead creatures together to make something that has the combined might of […]

Commander UNFocus — Baron Von Count

Okay FINE. Yeah. We’ll look at Unstable commanders. Sometimes a new legendary creature comes out that values other cards in a new way, making cards that were previously useless suddenly amazing in the right EDH deck. The last time I wrote about this sort of thing was with Mairsil, the Pretender and a fresh look […]

Commander Focus — Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist

  Typical Selesnya. Making everyone else play by harsh rules that they themselves gleefully ignore. It’s an unusual and non-standard definition of the word “duel” when one side of a dispute presents one champion and the other side gets to respond with their entire army. The Precon Effect At this “early” date, if we look […]

Commander Focus — Mairsil, the Pretender

Some commanders are considered to be “glass cannons”, in the sense that all the offensive power of the deck is concentrated through a single creature. If that creature is repeatedly removed or otherwise subdued, then the deck just stops being a threat. However, if that creature has enough protection or can evade detrimental spells, then […]

Commander Focus — Wasitora, Nekoru Queen

Some people like cats. Some people like dogs. Some people like both cats and dogs, so there’s a bit of overlap on that Venn diagram. But what, you presumably ask, about the people who like both cats and dragons? Wasitora, Nekoru Queen is a hard-working mother who just wants to feed her litter of cute […]

Commander Focus — Edgar Markov

The eminence ability allows us to play a commander that is lurking behind the scenes, making the team stronger, and only entering the fray when an urgent decisive strike is needed. With these characteristics, Edgar Markov is literally “The Man“. He’s an authority figure in the patriarchy, he’s white, he has his own private army […]

Commander Focus — Licia, Sanguine Tribune

Now that I’ve covered each of the partner commanders in their own articles (until Commander 2019 Partnerpalooza, that is), we need some new legendary creatures to talk about. Luckily, Commander 2017 is here with some new hotness. In the spirit of my articles, we don’t have that much data about these particular commanders yet, which makes the article […]
