The Knowledge Pool – Yuriko, the Tiger’s Shadow

Go Ninja Go! Hi everyone! Welcome back to The Knowledge Pool! This week we get to finally talk about the long awaited Commander 2018 set! For me, the yearly Commander sets tend to be the most exciting product Wizards releases. While people seem to have varying opinions on this year’s offering, I think it’s fairly […]

Andrew Jackson Highlander – Taigam, Sidisi’s Hand

The Hand Rises Welcome to Andrew Jackson Highlander! AJH is a series where I build and share $20 deck techs. This week, I get to share a decklist that will probably actually go down in price soon because it focuses heavily on cycling (thanks rotation!) with Taigam, Sidisi’s Hand at the helm. We are not […]

Ultra Budget Brews — Taigam, Sidisi’s Hand

Hello, and welcome back to another edition of Ultra Budget Brews, the article that builds entire EDH decks on the cheap. By cheap, we’re talking $1 or less. If you’ve been playing Magic for any time at all, you know it doesn’t get much cheaper than that. Last time I gave you all 5 commanders […]

Ultra Budget Brews — Vela the Night-Clad

Hello and welcome back to Ultra Budget Brews, where we prove weekly that “Magic content of the poors, by the poors, and for the poors, shall not perish from the internet.” It’s also the article series where historical quotes are butchered and tangentially related gifs and memes are repurposed in an attempt to dazzle and […]

Commander Showdown — Sygg vs Sygg

Sygg-nature Move In honor of the recent release of Duel Decks: Merfolk vs Goblins, we’re going to do something fun for this week’s Commander Showdown. Normally this series compares and contrasts commanders with similar abilities. For example, Tishana vs Zegana focused on two Simic card drawing powerhouses, and Hapatra vs The Scorpion God honed in on commanders that use -1/-1 […]

Commander Showdown — Kess vs Dralnu

Flashback Attack Almost exactly eleven years ago, the Time Spiral set was released, shaking the world in ways players never expected. ‘Timeshifted’ cards like Lord of Atlantis and The Rack brought the past into the present as temporal rifts threatened to destroy the beloved plane of Dominaria (which we’ll return to next year.) If you’d like […]

In the Margins — Clone

Currently there are 5,363 decks in the EDHREC database running Clone, and not a single one of them should have it as part of the 99. Once again I’m lying. Clone is fine and there are probably decks that want every clone effect possible. There might be one at the end of this article. I […]
