Weird Harvest — Pharika, Plague Politics

Hello everyone and welcome to the first installment of Weird Harvest. Over the course of this series I hope to impress upon all of you one of my favorite elements of EDH, and that is using jank during our build process to disrupt our opponents. You may ask yourself, “Why would I ever intentionally put […]

Ultra Budget Brews — Neheb, the Worthy

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Ultra Budget Brews, the article series where we build an entire EDH deck where no card costs more than $1. Normally this ends up costing right around $30, so for the cost of around 30 McDoubles from McDonalds, you can have a functional deck that will last you UNTIL […]

Commander Showdown — Taigam vs Taigam

Alternate Timelines Here on Commander Showdown, we normally take a close look at two commanders whose abilities are very similar. Last week, for example, we went in-depth on The Ur-Dragon vs Scion of the Ur-Dragon. Long before that, we examined Roon vs Brago in a Blink-Bros Brawl. This week, I hope you’ll indulge me as we try something […]

Burning Inquiry — Taking a Break from Magic

We’ve all been there. At some point this game which once inspired such lustful joy becomes a frustrating grind. Somewhere between the reserved list and the banned list, netdecking and token promos, boundless infinite combos and constricting real-life circumstances; it is here that players must reconsider the spaces for Magic: The Gathering in their lives.

Commander Showdown — Titania vs The Gitrog Monster

Let Me Tell You a Story Some time ago, I sat down for a game with my favorite deck, The Gitrog Monster. A short while into this game, I assembled a small army with an Avenger of Zendikar. An opponent wiped the board. I dropped a Rampaging Baloths and began to recreate the army, but […]

EDH Political Science — Tasigur, Steel-Driving Man

The steam engine broke society. It brought the world into the modern era. Industrialization, creating every modern amenity, would not have been possible without it. After the initial design by James Watt there were countless improvements, but there have been no developments with as large of an impact on the world since. When the previews […]
