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 […]

Commander Focus — Mairsil, the Pretender

Some commanders are considered to be “glass cannons”, in the sense that all the offensive power of the deck is concentrated through a single creature.

Low Market — Mairsil’s Charge Counter Combo

Mairsil, the Pretender art by Izzy. Madness Flashbacks In Magic lore, the Dominarian wizard Mairsil drove mad a powerful mage named Ith. This nicely aligns with my experiences of Mairsil, because this card drove me insane upon its release. I knew within seconds that I had to, had to, theorycraft this budget deck for my […]
