EDH Political Science — Saskia and the Olive Branch

Have you ever been stabbed in the back? No, I haven’t had someone put a knife in my spine either, but having a friend betray you at the last moment is devastating. Nation-states try to prevent this sort of betrayal by creating treaties. They do act similarly to the ones you crafted when you realized […]

Burning Inquiry — Budget Sram (If You Wanna Jam)

As I was growing up in the 90’s basketball was a big deal. To this day, I still associate Christmas with watching the Bulls, and think of Chicago romantically even though I’ve never been there.

EDH Political Science — “Anarchy, to thee we bow”

Partner Focus — Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker

Suppose, theoretically, that you are already bored with Atraxa, Praetors’ Voice. You’ve already built Atraxa as Infect, Planeswalkers, Thallid tribal, and even Angel/Horror tribal just to tone it down a notch. I’ve played multiple games recently against two different Atraxa builds at the same time, which is a testament to her power, popularity, and versatility. However, maybe you want […]
