The Knowledge Pool — Admiral Beckett Brass

Welcome back to the Knowledge Pool! My last two articles focused on decks aiming to do “big” things, and have been inspired by decks I’ve personally built in real life. This week, I want to go in a different strategic direction, and focus on a commander that’s new to me. As Dominaria spoilers begin to […]

Low Market — A Great Un-dertaking

Grusilda, Monster Masher art by Mathias Kollros Here on Low Market, we’ve only just started playing with Unstable, and we’re already having an un-credible time with it; so much so that we’re coming back around with another silver-bordered commander.
