Ultra Budget Brews — Ixalan

Hello and welcome back to Ultra Budget Brews, the column that plays EDH decks unsleeved like a godless savage, because sleeves are more expensive than the actual cards being played. I could use the previous sentence to segue into a joke about ‘protection’, but I’d want to find a gif for that and as I […]

Ultra Budget Brews — Exava

Hello and welcome back to Ultra Budget Brews, the article series that gives the people what they want, overthrowing the Magic hierarchy by letting cheap, unwanted, unloved cards have their moment to shine. In other words, we build entire EDH deck with no card costing more than $1, but that sounds far less dramatic. Speaking […]

NEWS — An EDHREC Powered Scryfall

A message from Don, the founder of EDHREC: In this article, Josh goes through a new collaboration between EDHREC and Scryfall. These two websites do complementary things already and it’s hard to build a deck without using both of them. Scryfall has become my and many of my friends’ go-to card search website recently due to its ease of […]

Ultra Budget Brews — Dragons

Hello and welcome back to Ultra Budget Brews! Normally, we build decks where every card, commander included, costs under $1, but this week we are doing something a bit different than normal. If you are invested enough into EDH to be reading this, then you probably are more than aware that WotC just released 4 […]

Pure//Simple — Where Are They Now?

I started playing Commander in 2010, about a year before it was even called Commander—when Wizards officially acknowledged the format with the release of Magic: the Gathering-Commander. At the time, it was hard to navigate Magic forum posts to figure out what to play. There wasn’t the wide breadth of information that sites like EDHREC […]

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 […]

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.

Pure // Simple – Get More Cards in All Colors

Welcome back to Pure // Simple, the article series that takes the mystery out of card choices in Commander. Commander is usually a game of attrition. Wrath of God-like cards destroy your creatures, you use your Chaos Warp to deal with an opponent’s big threat, and maybe Neheb, the Worthy has been making you discard […]

EDH Political Science — Breaking Bolas

Heroes are what write books, and get movies onto the silver screen. Villains keep us enthralled and hooked. Foils are vastly more intriguing than protagonists. Dracula, Darth Vader, and The Joker are the figures that we remember more vividly than heroes. Through history villains have had more appeal than their fictional counterparts. The attention that […]
