Commander Showdown – Aminatou vs Yennett

Master of Your Own Fate Commander 2018 has brought us some of the craziest new commanders we’ve ever seen. We have three new blue-red Artificers, one of whom duplicates your tokens; three new Bantchantresses, masters of card advantage; a Jund lands commander who’s so cool I had already sleeved up my 99 in anticipation of his […]

Commander Showdown – Arcades vs Doran

Defense is the Best Offense I’ll be honest, the first time I glanced through Core Set 2019, I wasn’t super impressed. With Bone Dragons and Pelakka Wurms, I was dubious that the set would contain interesting goodies for our beloved format. Even some of the Elder Dragons, such as Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner, left me skeptical. Then […]

Commander Showdown – Najeela vs Tazri

Five-Color Tribal The fight is on! Battlebond has given us a spectacular new commander, Najeela, the Blade-Blossom. At long last, we have a leader for a Warrior tribal EDH deck! Though Najeela herself is mono-red, her activated ability contains all five color symbols, giving her a rainbow-tastic color identity. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen […]

Commander Showdown — Sharuum vs Breya

Agents of Artifice At long last, our Artifact Commander Showdown is here! These two commanders have been the runners-up in the post-article votes, but they’re certainly not runners-up in games of EDH! You know them well: Sharuum the Hegemon, the enigmatic metal sphinx, and and Breya, Etherium Shaper, the four-color queen of Thopters! These commanders […]

Commander Showdown — Landfall Battle Royale

Let the Land Fall Welcome back to the Commander Showdown, the series where we pit similar-ish commanders against each other to analyze differences in card selection and strategy. Normally, I like to analyze two commanders at a time, such as Jodah vs Ramos‘s five-color face-off, or Marath vs Ghave‘s counter-token-combo matchup. However, this week we’re discussing not […]

EDHREC Battlebond Review — Black

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble Battlebond is arriving soon, and I think I speak for everyone when I say that the set looks fantastic. Full to the brim with amazing reprints and jam-packed with cards that work not only in Two-Headed Giant but also in Commander, Battlebond is shaping up to be a total smash. […]

Commander Showdown — Valduk vs Kemba

Red & White Equipment Red and white are frequently admonished for their weaknesses in the Commander format. Both colors have limited access to mana ramp and card draw effects, which makes for a difficult time in a multiplayer environment. In 1-on-1 games like Standard and Modern, Red and White make up for this lack of […]

Commander Showdown — Ramos vs Jodah

Five Color Fantasies Dominaria is here at last, and with it, we dive into a whole new slew of fantastic commanders. There’s a brand new five-color commander on everyone’s mind, who just narrowly won the vote from the last Commander Showdown. Folks are already staring to brew with him here on EDHREC: Jodah, Archmage Eternal. […]
