Weird Harvest — Control Denied

It’s that time again! Welcome back to Weird Harvest, where misfit commanders wield forgotten spells to create head scratching situations. This week we tackle a reader request from Darrenn E Canton! He asked if we could break Ertai, the Corrupted. We’re going to shatter this jank commander or die trying. Ertai: Just Add Oil This […]

Commander Focus — Azor, the Lawbringer

It is thus proclaimed on this day that Azor, the Lawbringer is a Legendary Creature Sphinx with 6/6 and Flying. When Azor comes into play, thou shalt get a free Sphinx’s Decree. When Azor attacks, thou can cast Sphinx’s Revelation. And thus it is proclaimed as law. The law has been brought. By Azor. To […]

Weird Harvest — Unexpected Results

Hello everyone! Welcome back for another Weird Harvest, where we strive to keep EDH janky. This week I’m going to do something I haven’t done in a while and really step outside of my comfort zone. As you’ve likely gathered I’m mostly an Abzan mage, and I lean very heavily on the Orzhov removal package. […]

Weird Harvest — Every rose has its thorn

Hello fellow jank brewers! Welcome back to another installment of Weird Harvest. Rivals of Ixalan is out and it’s time to start brewing with some of the sweet pieces of cardboard it contains. There are some fantastic options for new generals, but only one sparked my desire for jank. Orzhov has always been a favorite […]

Underdog’s Corner — Kefnet, the Mindful

New Year, Same Underdogs Hello and welcome back to the first Underdog’s Corner of 2018! It’s a new year, which means it’s likely to look a lot like the last year. It’s a time for opportunities to reinvent ourselves, make changes to our lives, and generally try to improve upon the previous years in some […]

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. This sneaky Inspector Gadget spoof infiltrates an opponent’s hand and plays […]

Weird Harvest — How the Wench Stole Christmas

The Season of Giving (to Me) It’s Christmas time! Normally that signifies a time of joy and selflessness. Forget all that nonsense. This week I want you all to tap into those dark holiday memories, the ones where you didn’t get what you really wanted. If you’re like me, then you probably grew up not […]

Weird Harvest — I’ve been you

Hello fellow janksters and welcome back to Weird Harvest. In this installment we’re going to continue along last installment’s idea of running a hybrid Voltron commander. Rather than running Stax like we did with Hope of Ghirapur, we will focus on a traditional control strategy. There were many options available for running a control-centric commander, […]

Weird Harvest — Cyclonic Rift is my Commander!

Welcome back to Weird Harvest, the column devoted to all things jank. This week we have our sights set on an Esper commander that tries to do something on its color identity. I know, the notion shocked me as well when it initially occurred to me. As I contemplated this thought for a bit it […]

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 […]
