Making the Cut – Taking on the Dump, Part 2

Optimizing a Pile Last time on Making the Cut, we looked at an initial dump of cards for a Lazav, the Multifarious +1/+1 counter deck featuring as many cheap creatures as possible, and then did an initial cut based on the archetypes we knew the deck was going to need in the final version. To start […]

The Knowledge Pool — Kresh the Bloodbraided

Hi everyone! Welcome back to The Knowledge Pool! Most commanders have an obvious theme and encourage us to play specific cards. This is apparent when we consider the decks I’ve presented so far. Mayael wants us to play with big creatures, Trostani wants us to make tokens, and Kydele wants to untap. I personally love […]

There’s the newly introduced Brawl […]

Replacement Commanders — Building Decks for Alternative C17 Commanders

Well, hello there readers. My name is Seth Cross, though I commonly go by “DM” (and yes, it does stand for Dungeon Master.) I have played Magic: the Gathering on and off since I was 8 years old, nearly 20 years ago. For the past four years, I became obsessed with the Commander format and […]

EDH Benchwarmers — Marchesa, the Black Rose

Hey everyone welcome back to EDH Benchwarmers with your host Andy Hull. Last time we really leaned into some pretty deep Van Halen references talking about a deck that was all about Roon of the Hidden Realm, and I guess somewhat about 80’s hair metal and partying way too hard on the Sunset Strip. This […]
