Commander Focus — Edgar Markov

The eminence ability allows us to play a commander that is lurking behind the scenes, making the team stronger, and only entering the fray when an urgent decisive strike is needed. With these characteristics, Edgar Markov is literally “The Man“. He’s an authority figure in the patriarchy, he’s white, he has his own private army […]

Yes, that’s right everyone, a double dose of my writing prowess here! In addition to my regularly scheduled article we get to run down some hot new toys coming out with Ixalan. I won’t dilly dally too much here, since red is what we all know is the worst color in Commander. There are some […]

Intellectual Offering — Gishath, Sun’s Avatar

Welcome back to Intellectual Offering. This week I’m excited to let my inner Timmy ROAR and talk a little about Gishath, Sun’s Avatar. In case you haven’t had a chance to drink this beauty in here it is in all it’s glory: That thing is HUGE. Ok so it’s not Titanosaur huge: But I mean […]

60 to 100 — Weenies for Everyone

Here we are, Ixalan is finally out for everyone to see! Dinosaurs, pirates and vampires, oh my! You know, everything that totally makes sense in a Magic: the Gathering world. Soon we’ll have a Rampaging Ferocidon crewing Heart of Kiran next to zombies and a Crested Sunmare. Seems reasonable right? Does it seem weird to […]

Replacement Commanders — Building Decks for Alternative C17 Commanders

Well, hello there readers. My name is Seth Cross, though I commonly go by “DM” (and yes, it does stand for Dungeon Master.) I have played Magic: the Gathering on and off since I was 8 years old, nearly 20 years ago. For the past four years, I became obsessed with the Commander format and […]

Low Market — Pi-rogues!

Admiral Beckett Brass art by Jason Rainville   I Like the Cut of your Jib Getcher cutlass and hoist the mainsail: we’re headed to the plane of Ixalan, a world of wonder and adventure and complex tribal mechanical themes. We had many options for this week’s budget deck: a crew of pirates led by Admiral […]

Commander Focus — Licia, Sanguine Tribune

Now that I’ve covered each of the partner commanders in their own articles (until Commander 2019 Partnerpalooza, that is), we need some new legendary creatures to talk about. Luckily, Commander 2017 is here with some new hotness. In the spirit of my articles, we don’t have that much data about these particular commanders yet, which makes the article […]

Howdy folks! Thanks for coming back to 60 to 100, the articles where we transform a 60-card archetype into a deck fit for 100-card singleton commandering.

EDH Political Science — Mathas, FRIEND Seeker

The world lived in chaos before 1945. War was the status quo for many places through out history. In the age we have lived in since the end of World War II there have been many quarrels and fights between super powers. Deaths have occurred; however, on a large scale, the world has less violence […]

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 […]
