Commander Focus — Varina, Lich Queen

Digital Queen It’s been a long, long time since Mon Mothma received the nano-immortality treatments. Every once in a while, she has to take the augmented reality mask off of the gilded thaumetallic contacts in her face to ease the overload of thought conductivity along the supercomputing fiber woven into her hair. It took a […]

Guilds of Ravnica Set Review – Dimir

Secrets, Spies, and a Sleuthy Disguise It’s-a me, Mister Plorg, and here we will be talking about the Top 13 New EDH Dimir Cards from Guilds of Ravnica, in no particular order.

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 […]

New EDHREC Feature – Precon Upgrade Guide

Upgrading Your Precon Suppose you just bought a preconstructed Commander deck and you want a rough idea of which five or ten or twenty cards you could add to make it a more tuned and functional deck. Since you’re adding cards to the initial 99, you’ll also need to know which cards need to be […]

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. Unfortunately, these robots did not have the necessary software driver updates to be able to fire their rocket launchers or their grenade machine guns. The task fell to one wandering courier […]

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. I’m not talking about how to play Battlebond, or Two-Headed Giant, or drafting, or any of that, just looking at these cards and how they stand up in […]

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, […]
