The Knowledge Pool – Grand Warlord Radha

Hi everyone! Welcome back to the Knowledge Pool! One of my favorite cards from Dominaria is Grand Warlord Radha, and from the moment I saw it, I’ve been considering how she might function in Commander. Not all of my brews end up turning into decks – in fact, most of them don’t – but it’s […]

General Medicine: Feudalism is Great

Good Knight Welcome back to the doctor’s office! Here at General Medicine, we practice EDH general medicine – I take your submitted deck, give it a spin through the EDHREC tech, add an analysis of my own, and produce a deck that is hopefully a souped-up version of the one submitted. This week, we’re taking […]

The Knowledge Pool — Saskia the Unyielding

Hi everyone! Welcome back to The Knowledge Pool. It’s been a little while, but last time I teased a deck based around Helm of the Host, and after much tinkering I’ve come up with a list that I believe will abuse it to the fullest extent. We’re going to explore the blood-drenched world of Saskia […]

Let’s Brawl — Breaking Parity

You slam Darigaaz Reincarnated onto the table and smirk. You smell fear in the air as you shuffle 59 cards and the other three players shy their eyes away. Since you have prepared lots of powerful creatures to plow over the competition, you assume the game will be quick. You may have even prepared against […]

The Knowledge Pool — Admiral Beckett Brass

Welcome back to the Knowledge Pool! My last two articles focused on decks aiming to do “big” things, and have been inspired by decks I’ve personally built in real life. This week, I want to go in a different strategic direction, and focus on a commander that’s new to me. As Dominaria spoilers begin to […]

Low Market — Lightning Strikes Twice

Saskia the Unyielding art by Greg Opalinski Lightning Strikes Twice Whether you’re a grizzled Magic veteran or a bushy-tailed new player, chances are good that at some point before learning to play you listened to someone discussing the game and said to yourself, “I recognize the words they’re using, but they may as well be speaking a different language.” […]

Low Market — Borborygmos’ Splendid Combo

Borborygmos Enraged art by Aleksi Briclot Anger Management It’s an important life skill, I believe, to find constructive outlets for your anger. I, for example, might channel it into video games. Some people might exercise. Some people might find a private place to emit a primal screech. Borborygmos Enraged does none of these things, preferring […]

EDH Political Science — Marchesa’s Bully Pulpit

At the end of last year India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, announced a bold plan to cut out black market spending and corruption. Eliminate money. Not all money, but enough of the untraceable, large denomination, physical bills so the underground economy is either left exposed or starves. A wave of anti-corruption politics has swept other […]
