Dig Through Time — Urza’s Block

Welcome back to another Dig Through Time, and I apologize for the delay between our last column and today’s. Just an FYI, this series is going to become slightly more intermittent, dropping down to once a month or so for the time being, as my family welcomed my second baby on November 21st (fingers crossed […]

Dig Through Time — Nemesis

We already covered Mercadian Masques back in February. Today we’re going to dig back in time to cover the second set in the Mercadian Masques block—Nemesis. Nemesis came out in 2000, and brought back Spellshapers, alternative casting costs, Mercenaries and Rebels from the previous set. Mercenaries and Rebels are still too parasitic to be very interesting, but the […]

Dig Through Time — Time Spiral

Maybe you’ve noticed a theme in my last two columns. First we did Future Sight. Then we visited Planar Chaos. Hm, is this a pattern? Yes, we’ve been doing Time Spiral block in reverse, and that means that today we’re going to the past to visit the set that kicked off this crazy block. In addition to bringing […]

Commander Showdown — Baral vs Talrand

Commander Showdown is a series that compares and contrast two similar commanders, analyzes differences in strategy and deck construction, and evaluates how those differences are represented by the data here on EDHREC. Aether Revolt introduced a handful of new Legendary creatures to EDH, such as Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Rishkar, Peema Renegade. Unfortunately (and probably […]
