Agents of Artifice At long last, our Artifact Commander Showdown is here!

EDH Political Science — Straw Man and Threat Assessment

Politics wouldn’t be the same without lying. There is a precedent for it. Lying as part of any political system exists simply because there are clear advantages to doing so.

Overwhelming Splendor art by Richard Wright Darn You to Heck When the two suns of Amonkhet were naught but distant lights on the horizon, we knew to expect two things: top-down Egyptian themes, and top-down Nicol Bolas themes. What I did not expect was a smattering of curses, which (save for Wheel of Sun and […]
