EDHRECast Ep28 – The Knowledge Pool (ft. Scot Sutton)

This week the cast talks with write Scot Sutton about top-down deckbuilding and finding creative ways to brew with a commander that maybe isn’t so readily apparent at first glace. Check out Scot’s Knowledge Pool series! Our decks are online! Check them out here.

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, […]

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 […]
