Commander Showdown — Marath vs Ghave

Counters, Tokens, and Combos When people think of Commander cards, there are often a few EDH-specific cards that come to mind. Sol Ring, for example, or Cyclonic Rift.

Hello everyone! Welcome back for another Weird Harvest, where we strive to keep EDH janky. This week I’m going to do something I haven’t done in a while and really step outside of my comfort zone.
