Ultra Budget Brews — Horobi, Death’s Wail

Hello, and welcome back for the 6th edition of Ultra Budget Brews, the column where we build EDH decks that only contain cards that cost less than $1. So far we have built decks that correspond with a number of different archetypes. We have built Aggro, Burn, Combo, and Mid-range. One kind of deck that […]

Burning Inquiry — Silas & Bruse Fidget Spinners

Reality can be heavy with burden, and, at times, feel like you’re entrenched by your circumstances. School, work, the responsibilities of life; each has the potential to become menial tasks we’re perpetually chained to. Of course there are ways to cope with this stark truth. Some people break from traditional norms after becoming romanced by […]

Pure // Simple – Outside the Pie

Welcome back to Pure//Simple, the article series that tries to take the mystery out of card choices. Knowing what cards are good in Commander is one of the first steps towards becoming well-versed in the format, but knowing why certain cards are good is even more important. Sometimes, after building a deck and playing a […]

EDH Benchwarmers — Kruphix, God of Colourless Mana

Last time I built a deck I made the fatal flaw of confusing NBA All-Star Demar DeRozan for classic centaur commander Stonebrow, Krosan Hero. This time I promise to make it up to everyone by giving a much-beloved and definite actual magic card, the benchwarmer treatment. This time we build a deck for Kruphix, God […]

Ultra Budget Brews — Anax and Cymede

Welcome to the 5th edition of Ultra Budget Brews, the series that builds entire EDH decks where nothing costs more than $1! (I totally should have named this series Dollar General. To you, the reader, I apologize.) Recently, I discussed how the rules of EDH tend to lead to a few different archetypes of decks […]

Burning Inquiry — Rhonas Cash Me Ousside

We live in a violent world. Who really knows why our culture is one that glorifies brutality for sport, ferocity for profit, and might imposed on the weak as strength? Perhaps we’re too eager to celebrate our athletes without considering the physical toll they pay for our entertainment? Or maybe it has to do with the fact […]

Ultra Budget Brews — Amonkhet Edition

Hello and welcome to Ultra Budget Brews! Typically this article series builds entire EDH decks where no card costs more than $1, but this week I decided to do something a little different. As you all know, Amonkhet is now legal, meaning a ton of new cards were just released into the wild. This means […]

Ultra Budget Brews — Heartless Hidetsugu

Welcome to the 3rd edition of Ultra Budget Brews, the series in which we build entire EDH decks in which every card costs under $1. EDH as a format lends itself to certain kinds of decks. Much of this can be attributed to three rules that are a part of the format’s foundation: 100 card […]

EDH Benchwarmers — Marchesa, the Black Rose

Hey everyone welcome back to EDH Benchwarmers with your host Andy Hull. Last time we really leaned into some pretty deep Van Halen references talking about a deck that was all about Roon of the Hidden Realm, and I guess somewhat about 80’s hair metal and partying way too hard on the Sunset Strip. This […]
