Ravnica Allegiance Set Review – Azorius

Emergency Powers by Chris Rallis (https://www.rallisart.com/) I Fought the Law, and the Law Won Of course the law won. The law always wins. For the Azorius, there is no phrase sweeter, no sentiment more precious, and no rule more golden than the strict adherence to the hieromantic power they hold over Ravnica. As Ravnica Allengiance approaches, the […]

Nikya of the Old Ways by Ryan Pancoast (@rpancoast_art) Not Gruul? THEN DIE! Hello, and welcome to EDHREC’s set review for Ravnica Allegiance!

Pursuit of Knowledge – Rakdos

Rakuno, Rakdos, Raktres Barring decks with black and green in their color identity, the Command Zone found in their gameplay survey that decks with black and red in their color identity were the strongest.

Mechanically Minded – Ninjutsu

And you probably loved them when they first appeared in Betrayers of Kamigawa, despite them being criminally under-supported. Their signature mechanic is, of course, Ninjutsu, and this week […]

ITM

Making the Cut – Taking on the Dump, Part 2

Optimizing a Pile Last time on Making the Cut, we looked at an initial dump of cards for a Lazav, the Multifarious +1/+1 counter deck featuring as many cheap creatures as possible, and then did an initial cut based on the archetypes we knew the deck was going to need in the final version.
