Commander Focus — Vaevictis Asmadi 2, the Budget

Vaevictis the Dire… On a Budget! As a new twist, I’m writing a follow-up article to a previous commander. In my last article about Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, I made a deck list that I felt comfortable playing. Only later did I look at the per-card budget lines of the deck and realize that I made […]

Commander Focus — Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign

Long Live the New Narset You might think she’s cute, flying around with an Octopus Umbra shouting “LOOK AT ME! I HAZ ELDRITCH TENTACLES! I AM EMRAKUL!” and you point and laugh because she’s pretending to be Emrakul. Then she attacks you and reveals the top card and behold, it’s Emrakul, the Promised End and […]

Commander Focus — Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer

An Army of Securitrons Once upon a time, there was a very helpful character who had access to an unlimited supply of battle robots.

Commander Focus — Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire

Vaevictis, New and Improved Behold, Vaevictus Asmadi, the Dire! A new upgrade to an old classic. The previous version of this Elder Dragon had firebreathing, as well as treebreathing and swampbreathing. While this ability might be fascinating to reptilian nutritionists, it’s a bit mediocre compared to what modern commanders can do. The upgraded version gets […]

Partner Focus — Battlebond

Hey, there’s a new set with the partner mechanic! That means I can dust off this article series and talk some more about partners in Commander decks.

Commander Focus — Grand Warlord Radha

Picture in your mind an elf that taps for mana. These are colloquially known as “mana dorks”. Given that descriptor, you can probably extrapolate some ideas about this type of character. Do those ideas include decent power and toughness, haste, and an urge to charge into combat? Grand Warlord Radha is in fact an elf, […]
