Spreading the Love — Getting Your Significant Other to Play

Hello Planeswalkers, Kya here once again to spread more love across the EDH community! Being a female player, Magic: the Gathering can be an… interesting experience to say the least. I know there has been plenty of drama over the last week, but this article doesn’t deal with that topic. I’m sure many are tired […]

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 […]

Underdog’s Corner — Stonebrow, Krosan Hero

Clean and Simple Hello, one and all! Welcome to the Underdog’s Corner. If you are a first-time reader, this is a series that covers a legendary creature that I think is either underplayed or underrated. Usually the commanders you see are janky commanders that require a bit a work, and other times I cover commanders […]

Intellectual Offering — Kess, Dissident Mage

This week in Sam vs. The Internet I take on a deck that pushing up the popularity charts week in and week out since its release. Kess, Dissident Mage is not normally the kind of commander I like to write about as she doesn’t facilitate a specific strategy and instead supports generic “goodstuff” style control […]

Uncompetitive Spirit — Pentagram

You all know how it goes. You make the calls. You put the brews (or soda) in the fridge. You set the stage and make room around the kitchen table for yourself and three other powerful mages. And then four show up. So what do you do? You could just go ahead and play EDH […]

Turning Data into Decks part 2 — Creating Chaos!

Hello my fellow mad scientists! Kya here again! I’m overjoyed with the response and feedback across the net about my first article. There are definitely those who have strong opinions about both Net Decking and Group Hug. I expected Net Decking to turn a few heads, but the real surprise was those against the concept of […]
