Ultra Budget Brews — Taigam, Sidisi’s Hand

Hello, and welcome back to another edition of Ultra Budget Brews, the article that builds entire EDH decks on the cheap. By cheap, we’re talking $1 or less. If you’ve been playing Magic for any time at all, you know it doesn’t get much cheaper than that. Last time I gave you all 5 commanders […]

Ultra Budget Brews — Vela the Night-Clad

Hello and welcome back to Ultra Budget Brews, where we prove weekly that “Magic content of the poors, by the poors, and for the poors, shall not perish from the internet.” It’s also the article series where historical quotes are butchered and tangentially related gifs and memes are repurposed in an attempt to dazzle and […]

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 […]

Commander Showdown — Kess vs Dralnu

Flashback Attack Almost exactly eleven years ago, the Time Spiral set was released, shaking the world in ways players never expected. ‘Timeshifted’ cards like Lord of Atlantis and The Rack brought the past into the present as temporal rifts threatened to destroy the beloved plane of Dominaria (which we’ll return to next year.) If you’d like […]

In the Margins — Clone

Currently there are 5,363 decks in the EDHREC database running Clone, and not a single one of them should have it as part of the 99. Once again I’m lying. Clone is fine and there are probably decks that want every clone effect possible. There might be one at the end of this article. I […]

I hope you enjoy your stay, but please keep an eye on your wallet, your phone, your foil commanders, and other valuables that you may have upon your person.

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 […]

Commander Showdown — The Scarab God vs Gisa and Geralf vs Grimgrin

Triple Showdown Two months ago, I wrote a Commander Showdown about the reigning zombie tribal commanders, Gisa and Geralf and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. Then Hour of Devastation happened, unleashing one of the coolest and most frightening commanders we’ve seen in a long time: The Scarab God. The zombie apocalypse never stops, nor do its commanders. We’ve been […]

Jumbo Commander — The Scarab God Commander Deck Tech

The Scarab God can be an all-in zombie tribal deck or a stealing mill build … and a lot of powerful value in between. This is going to be a very popular and customizable commander because it is so versatile. Please enjoy a few ideas I have.
