The Knowledge Pool — Kydele & Thrasios Part 1

Hi everyone! Welcome back to the Knowledge Pool! This week we’re going to be looking at another deck I’ve personally built and remodeling it with the hope of reaching a more coherent deck list. I was quite happy with how our experiment turned out with Maelstrom Wanderer, and I think the deck I’m presenting today […]

Let’s Brawl — Day Zero Primer

The dawn of a new format has arrived, and we don’t yet have the tools to solve it. With EDHREC supporting Brawl with full functionality there was a need to create articles that sift through the information. Understanding a format takes time. The announcement was less than a week ago as I write this article. […]

Underdog’s Corner — Tishana, Voice of Thunder

Recent-Past Reviewed Hello, everyone! Welcome back to another edition of the Underdog’s Corner! As we move closer towards the release of Dominaria, I thought to look back on the last block, Ixalan. This week’s entrant is one that always seemed powerful, but never received a lot of attention. I certainly never gave it much attention […]

Commander Showdown — Mairsil vs Experiment Kraj

Some Assembly Required Magic: the Gathering is filled to the brim with abilities. We have triggered abilities, as seen on cards like Eternal Witness and Phyrexian Arena. There are mana abilities, famously found on lands, artifacts, and mana dorks such as Gilded Lotus and Llanowar Elves. Then we have static abilities, like the classic Glorious […]

Weird Harvest — Unexpected Results

Hello everyone! Welcome back for another Weird Harvest, where we strive to keep EDH janky. This week I’m going to do something I haven’t done in a while and really step outside of my comfort zone. As you’ve likely gathered I’m mostly an Abzan mage, and I lean very heavily on the Orzhov removal package. […]

Commander Showdown — Kumena vs Sygg

Under the Sea Commander Showdown is back! We had a brief bout of Un-Mander articles during the Unstable season, but now we’re back to black-bordered Magic, so it’s Rivals of Ixalan time! I won’t waste time with preamble—these fishy friends were the most-requested matchup for this week’s Showdown. You know who they are: Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca […]

Commander Showdown — Tishana vs Zegana

Prime Speaker of Thunder Ixalan is just around the river bend, which means we must turn our attention from the tribes of Commander 2017 to the tribes of this dangerous new plane. We have a ton of new and exciting legendary creatures headed our way, but there’s one in particular that stands out. Commander Showdown […]

EDH Political Science — Party Time, Excellent

Political parties have been a contentious part of United States politics since the founding of the nation. Alexander Hamilton and James Madison wrote about their concerns and the benefits of “factions” on the political stage in the ninth and tenth Federalist Papers. They began a heated debate that years later led to the formation of […]

Partner Focus — Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix

Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and I have a special personal relationship, in that I was honored to be literally the first person to sing Kydele’s praises to the world. Since the Prophet of Kruphix left the stage, the Big K needs a new multi-armed wizard to represent his interests in the mortal world. {Tap}: Add {C} to […]
