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 […]

Intellectual Offering — Tymna and Sidar

It’s that time again. This week on Intellectual Offering we are going back to IO’s roots and examining a deck on a card-for-card basis. Ok, that’s a small lie. This week we examine a couple of decks that are all actually one. This week I’m looking at Tymna the Weaver and Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa, […]

Partner Focus — Reyhan, Last of the Abzan

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan is one lonely (and angry) warrior khan. As her comrades die around her, she rallies strength from their sacrifice and inspires the rest of the troops under her command. That inspiration is a fluid that flows from the fallen to the survivors in her presence. Whenever a creature you control […]

60 to 100 — Creatures in the Toolbox

Welcome everyone! Today we are trying something a little different. As you know, my previous series about the Singleton Guild Wheel wrapped up a couple weeks ago.

There is a Better Version.dec

The number of times I’ve built a Commander deck, sleeved it up and brought it to Magic night, ready to drop it on some unsuspecting friends/foes only to have someone remark about my awesome deck, “You know there’s a better version of X” or “Why don’t you just run X instead?” is TOO DAMN HIGH. […]
