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 […]

Replacement Commanders — Licia Sucks (Your Life Total Away)

Here we are again, ladies and goblins! Starting off another installment of Replacement Commanders. This series looks at all eight of the “alternate” Commanders from the Commander 2017 product, instead of the face eminence legendary creatures from each deck. From there, we break down the replacement commander based on the stats, colors and abilities of […]

Historically Speaking — Silly Hats, Zero-Sum Games, and Lifelink!

Thanksgiving has creeped up upon us, stealthily, like a…stealthy thing. And so of course, instead of devolving into what the turkey meant in Mesoamerica (it was called the Chalchiuhtotolin, or jeweled bird, a favored animal of the Mexica trickster god Tezcatlipoca—oh damn there I go ahead willy-nilly) we will dive into a bit of game […]

Intellectual Offering — Kess, Dissident Mage

This week in Sam vs. The Internet I take on a deck that pushing up the popularity charts week in and week out since its release. Kess, Dissident Mage is not normally the kind of commander I like to write about as she doesn’t facilitate a specific strategy and instead supports generic “goodstuff” style control […]

Turning Data into Decks part 2 — Creating Chaos!

Hello my fellow mad scientists! Kya here again! I’m overjoyed with the response and feedback across the net about my first article. There are definitely those who have strong opinions about both Net Decking and Group Hug. I expected Net Decking to turn a few heads, but the real surprise was those against the concept of […]

Commander Showdown — Sygg vs Sygg

Sygg-nature Move In honor of the recent release of Duel Decks: Merfolk vs Goblins, we’re going to do something fun for this week’s Commander Showdown. Normally this series compares and contrasts commanders with similar abilities. For example, Tishana vs Zegana focused on two Simic card drawing powerhouses, and Hapatra vs The Scorpion God honed in on commanders that use -1/-1 […]

Uncompetitive Spirit — Kingdoms

Too Many Cooks… EDH is pretty great, though I think we’d be hard-pressed to find consensus among the community about exactly what it is that makes it great. Some like to play competitive EDH, a concept I myself find very difficult to grok. Some like to play preconstructed decks or Pauper EDH with only commons […]
