Triple Showdown Two months ago, I wrote a Commander Showdown about the reigning zombie tribal commanders, Gisa and Geralf and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. Then Hour of Devastation happened, unleashing one of the coolest and most frightening commanders we’ve seen in a long time: The Scarab God. The zombie apocalypse never stops, nor do its commanders.

Pyramid Theory 101 — Caw Blade

Greetings everyone, I’m back once again to highlight deck construction through the use of Pyramid Theory. This time I want to focus on themed decks. A themed deck is a deck which is build around a theme, rather than a commander. Tribal decks are some of the most common examples of this. Some other possible […]
