Replacement Commanders — Building Decks for Alternative C17 Commanders

Well, hello there readers. My name is Seth Cross, though I commonly go by “DM” (and yes, it does stand for Dungeon Master.) I have played Magic: the Gathering on and off since I was 8 years old, nearly 20 years ago. For the past four years, I became obsessed with the Commander format and […]

Non-Basically Speaking — Balan, Wandering Knight

Balan Wandering Knight EDH Commander Deck

Hello friends and treasure seekers, and welcome back to EDHREC and our continuing biweekly column, Non-Basically Speaking, the series that strives to identify non-basic lands that should be considered valuable staples or hidden gems based on their visibility on EDHREC. I have to admit, selecting a topic of conversation this week was a bit tough […]

Commander Focus — Licia, Sanguine Tribune

Now that I’ve covered each of the partner commanders in their own articles (until Commander 2019 Partnerpalooza, that is), we need some new legendary creatures to talk about. Luckily, Commander 2017 is here with some new hotness. In the spirit of my articles, we don’t have that much data about these particular commanders yet, which makes the article […]

EDH Political Science — Mathas, FRIEND Seeker

The world lived in chaos before 1945. War was the status quo for many places through out history. In the age we have lived in since the end of World War II there have been many quarrels and fights between super powers. Deaths have occurred; however, on a large scale, the world has less violence […]

Commander Showdown — Taigam vs Taigam

Alternate Timelines Here on Commander Showdown, we normally take a close look at two commanders whose abilities are very similar. Last week, for example, we went in-depth on The Ur-Dragon vs Scion of the Ur-Dragon. Long before that, we examined Roon vs Brago in a Blink-Bros Brawl. This week, I hope you’ll indulge me as we try something […]

Human Cleric If we like the tribal route, the pair of Ravos and Tymna the Weaver are currently the second favorite “commander” for cleric tribal, which doesn’t stray far outside of white and […]

EDHREC Spoiler Coverage — Blood and Iron

Burning Inquiry — Taking a Break from Magic

We’ve all been there. At some point this game which once inspired such lustful joy becomes a frustrating grind. Somewhere between the reserved list and the banned list, netdecking and token promos, boundless infinite combos and constricting real-life circumstances; it is here that players must reconsider the spaces for Magic: The Gathering in their lives.
