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 […]

Low Market — Revenge of the Pauper Commander Double Feature

Composite Golem art by Mark Tedin Double or Nothing Many moons ago, we here at Low Market made a brief double-foray into Pauper Commander, a Commander subformat where any Uncommon creature can be at the helm of deck composed entirely of Commons.
