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 […]

Commander Showdown – Equipment Battle Royale

Dreaming of a Mono-White Christmas It’s that time of year! Folks are lighting their Candelabra of Tawnoses, chopping down Doran, the Siege Towers to dress them up with Mishra’s Baubles, and desperately avoiding their grandmother’s Fruitcake Elemental recipe. It’s also the time of year that we take all our new toys and equip them to […]

Commander Showdown – Muldrotha vs Tasigur

Death is the Best Life Ultimate Masters has made a big splash in the collective consciousness of us Magic players with its fantastic suite of reprints. It features brand new art for the much-beloved (or much-maligned) Sultai Shaman, Tasigur, the Golden Fang. Infamous as a piece of dazzling neckwear for Dragonlord Silumgar, this sly, impetuous character uses […]

Commander Showdown – Vela vs Yuriko

Lurking in the Shadows Happy Halloween to all! In honor of this dark and spooky holiday, let’s take a look at Magic’s deadliest shadow-dwelling commanders! Commander 2018 introduced one of the craziest legends we’ve ever seen: Yuriko, the Tiger’s Shadow. At long last, our wishes for a Ninja Tribal commander were fulfilled!

Commander Showdown – Lazav vs Lazav

Identity Theft With the release of Guilds of Ravnica, the Dimir guild grows ever more mysterious. The more we learn about them, the more and more elusive they become. Though we all know and love Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and his Jaqen H’ghar impersonation, this faceless man has changed his identity once again, now sporting the title Lazav, […]

Commander Showdown – Grenzo vs Alesha

Mini Minions Some colors in Magic: the Gathering like to play the “go big or go home” game. In green, for example, we see Elemental Bond, Colossal Majesty, Rishkar’s Expertise, and a myriad of other effects that reward you for playing enormous monsters. Other colors, however, prefer to go wide rather than tall. White, with its Mentor […]

Commander Showdown – Varina vs Sidisi

Endless Ranks of the Undead If there’s one thing I’ve learned playing Magic: the Gathering, it’s that the Zombies just never stop coming. From Alpha to Zendikar, the dead are always with us, hungry for more. I’ve written not one but two Commander Showdowns about Zombie tribal decks in Commander… but only for the blue-black legends. While I’ve discussed The Scarab God, […]
