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 […]

EDH Political Science — Straw Man and Threat Assessment

Politics wouldn’t be the same without lying. There is a precedent for it. Lying as part of any political system exists simply because there are clear advantages to doing so. A politician can get caught lying and still come out ahead. The fact that information is out there is more important than if it was […]

Low Market — An Author Twice Cursed

Overwhelming Splendor art by Richard Wright Darn You to Heck When the two suns of Amonkhet were naught but distant lights on the horizon, we knew to expect two things: top-down Egyptian themes, and top-down Nicol Bolas themes. What I did not expect was a smattering of curses, which (save for Wheel of Sun and […]

Low Market — Sydri Aetherflux Storm

Partner Focus — Silas Renn, Seeker Adept

Silas Renn, Seeker Adept combines the sneering punchable face of Martin Shkreli with the haughty annoyance of C3P0’s body. He’s a fun guy at parties. But enough about the card art. He’s a 2/2 with Deathtouch. If he does combat damage to a player, you can cast a dead artifact from your graveyard. You still have […]
