Commander 2018 Set Review – Gold (Pt 1)

Commander 2018 It is finally that time! Commander 2018 is here! I’ve described this release as a Commander player’s Super Bowl, and this year’s new legends don’t disappoint. In the first five years of its lifetime, the Commander products were done in full color cycles. After that, with Commander 2017, the product was reduced to […]

Commander Showdown – Arcades vs Doran

Defense is the Best Offense I’ll be honest, the first time I glanced through Core Set 2019, I wasn’t super impressed. With Bone Dragons and Pelakka Wurms, I was dubious that the set would contain interesting goodies for our beloved format. Even some of the Elder Dragons, such as Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner, left me skeptical. Then […]

60 to 100 — The Greatest (God-Pharaoh’s) Gift

Smell that? No, not your weird uncle and his “cologne”, that he keeps hanging from his rear-view window. Yes, that other smell. The good one. It’s that post-Pro Tour smell. Some innovation popped up like I told you it would, and, since I am a man of my word, I’m here to jam the most […]

As a player for three years and counting, the Theros and Urza blocks introduced me to magic in a way that I fell in love with enchantments. Sure, there are tons of aura strategies to work with Bruna, Light of […]
