Commander UNFocus — Baron Von Count

Okay FINE. Yeah. We’ll look at Unstable commanders. Sometimes a new legendary creature comes out that values other cards in a new way, making cards that were previously useless suddenly amazing in the right EDH deck. The last time I wrote about this sort of thing was with Mairsil, the Pretender and a fresh look […]

Commander Showdown — Hapatra vs The Scorpion God

V for Venom-Detta Voilà! In view, the vast valleys of Ixalan! However, now that we’ve arrived at this vivid, vibrant vista, we must veer our vessel back to Amonkhet! We volunteered to visit two voracious veterans before the Hour of Devastation vanishes, and they would be very vexed and vindictive if we vacated our vow. If you, valuable viewer, would rather […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Pyramid Theory 101 — Gambling with Power

Greetings everyone, I’m back once again to highlight the deckbuilding process through the use of Pyramid Theory. This time I discuss ‘all-in’ strategies, and the gambling it brings to the table. What do I exactly mean by ‘all-in’ strategies? All-in strategies are hyperlinear that accept the risks involved with only having one gameplan. Some commanders […]
