Superior Numbers – Exotic Orchard

An Orchard Most Exotic Exotic Orchard is a really good card, as evidenced by having a home in 31,793 decks on EDHREC, and that number isn’t nearly high enough. Welcome to Superior Numbers, a column that you may never see again but that exists at least this one time because I decided to try and […]

Replacement Commanders – Yennett is Odd, But is She Good?

Well, hello there again, readers. My name is Seth Cross, though I commonly go by “DM” (and yes, it does stand for Dungeon Master). Now, that introduction may seem familiar to those of you who’ve read my very first articles here on EDHREC; that’s the introduction I used for my first article series for this […]

Epic Experiment – Sliver Zur

Zur the Enchanter EDH

Experimenting Epically Good morning, EDHREC! I’m Bernardo Melibeu and this is The Epic Experiment, a series where we throw all common sense aside and experiment with some unusual cards, effectively changing how we normally build our deck.

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 […]

The 600 – Predicting the Popularity of C18 Commanders

Making a Prophecy I love prophecy. I’m not sure why. I love the prophets and prophetesses of Greek myth. I love when authors foreshadow future events in books. I even love pro football preseason picks (though how accurate are they, really?). All in all, predicting the future is pretty cool. With this series, I’m going […]

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, […]
