Intellectual Offering — Mathas, Fiend Seeker

This week I’m dropping the flavorful approach in favor of a more direct contribution. It was a fun experiment and may come back in the future, but for now I just want to talk unhindered about a sweet new card from Commander 2017 (C17). A Brief Aside But first just a couple thoughts on the […]

EDHREC Spoiler Coverage — Blood and Iron

“To make you a vampire they have to suck your blood. And then you have to suck their blood. It’s like a whole big sucking thing.” Buffy Summers Day three of Commander 2017 spoiler week leaned heavily into vampires starting off in the wee hours of the morning with our first Mardu bloodsucker legend. As someone […]

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 […]

EDH Political Science — Marchesa’s Bully Pulpit

At the end of last year India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, announced a bold plan to cut out black market spending and corruption. Eliminate money. Not all money, but enough of the untraceable, large denomination, physical bills so the underground economy is either left exposed or starves. A wave of anti-corruption politics has swept other […]

Intellectual Offering – Queen Marchesa

While the new commanders have started taking off, I don’t feel compelled right yet to make them an offering. With people becoming more and more aware of this wonderful site they’re also becoming better at building around new commanders as they come out. People have nailed the important stuff for Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, with […]

Low Market — Alesha Cycling

The Cycle Unbroken My love of the cycling mechanic is well-documented. How well-documented? Well, I mentioned it at least once, in the cycling subsection of my Hapatra article. What? That’s not enough documentation for you? Fine! Then I’ll make an entire list based around cycling, and I’ll base it on one of my favorite Commander decks: Alesha […]

EDH Benchwarmers — Kaalia of the Vast

We did it, we found an actual theme for my article series. People seemed to dig the idea of the “Better Version.dec” from last time (Teneb instead of Karador) so, the EDH Benchwarmers series is born. A quick word about what it means to be a “Benchwarmer” before we begin. Benchwarmer is without a doubt […]
