Uncommonders – Battle Mages, Spellslingers, and Caster Tokens!

Silver Spellslinging Hello again, all you lovely cardboard-slinging wizards and warriors! My name is Seth Cross (call me “DM”) and this is another installment of the Uncommonders series! For the past few months, we’ve been looking at the unique phenomenon of legendary creatures printed at the uncommon rarity rather than rare or mythic. The idea […]

Playgroup Brews – Commander 2018 (Pt 2)

Previously On EDHREC… It’s time to finish our second session of Playgroup Brews: Commander 2018! As I said in Part 1, this article will not be a review the precons. Instead, three members of my playgroup have joined me in creating a deck for four of the new commanders. Each of us has chosen one of […]

Commander Focus — Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer

An Army of Securitrons Once upon a time, there was a very helpful character who had access to an unlimited supply of battle robots. Unfortunately, these robots did not have the necessary software driver updates to be able to fire their rocket launchers or their grenade machine guns. The task fell to one wandering courier […]

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 […]

Dictate of Don — Improving our Chances for Zndrsplt/Okaun One-Hit Kills

When I first saw Okaun I knew there would be some weirdness in being able to move in for the kill with him, in particular with splashy one-hit kills. This isn’t normal for Magic as chance doesn’t usually determine life or death, so knowing the odds can really help influence our deck building decisions and […]

Commander Showdown — Jhoira vs Jhoira

Back to the Future, Forward to the Past Our trip through the Dominaria preview season has been topsy-turvy, wibbly-wobbly, and of course, timey-wimey. From Muldrotha, the Gravetide to Firesong and Sunspeaker, this legendary plane has more legendary creatures than we’ve seen in a long time. Still, one of them stands out from all the rest, […]

Burning Inquiry — Taking a Break from Magic

We’ve all been there. At some point this game which once inspired such lustful joy becomes a frustrating grind. Somewhere between the reserved list and the banned list, netdecking and token promos, boundless infinite combos and constricting real-life circumstances; it is here that players must reconsider the spaces for Magic: The Gathering in their lives. […]

Burning Inquiry — The Cult of Ludevic and Sidar Kondo

I was involved in a cult once. Usually quite a calculated and reasonable man, one day I learned it was the will of Zedruu that I must submit to. Of course things began harmlessly enough: It is the will of Zedruu that you have… this Pentad Prism. It is no longer burdened by counters. Enjoy. I will be […]
