Ultra Budget Brews — Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient

Hello, and welcome back to another edition of Ultra Budget Brews, the article series that (fondly) remembers when fast food places had actual dollar menus instead of ‘value menus’.

Un-Mander Showdown — X vs Sen Triplets

X Gon’ Give it to Ya Un-mander is here for only a few more weeks, but before the format goes back to normal, we need to have at least one more silver-bordered Showdown. Unstable gave us a commander that easily wins the Most-Difficult-Card-To-Search-By-Name award: X.

Weird Harvest — Hail to the King, Baby!

Last time on Weird Harvest we explored the new lands of Ixalan with Captain Lannery Storm. This week I thought we would do something a bit different and step away from red and cover a mono-colored deck that is similar, but different enough in focus that it isn’t a rehash. Who needs to turn trash into […]
