Ultra Budget Brews – Nature’s Vengeance

World Wide Web of War Hello, and welcome back to a special edition of Ultra Budget Brews, the article series that is perpetually “Thinking Arby’s” (I blame the coupons they mail). It’s also the series that builds entire EDH decks in which no card costs more than $1. Well, typically. I mentioned that this is […]

Commander Focus — Vaevictis Asmadi 2, the Budget

Vaevictis the Dire… On a Budget! As a new twist, I’m writing a follow-up article to a previous commander. In my last article about Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, I made a deck list that I felt comfortable playing. Only later did I look at the per-card budget lines of the deck and realize that I made […]

Andrew Jackson Highlander – Thantis, the Warweaver

The Webs We Weave Welcome to Andrew Jackson Highlander, a biweekly series where I build and share $20 Commander decks. With Commander 2018 released this month, I will be devoting my articles to some of the alternate commanders within each of the decks. To kick it off, we incite violence and ensnare our opponents in our political webs […]

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 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 […]

Jumbo Commander – Gyrus, Waker of Corpses Commander 2018 Deck Tech

Gyrus Waker of Corpses is a jund value hydra engine. This toolbox commander lets you pull creatures straight out of your graveyard. Some people, myself included, bemoaned the fact that Gyrus forces you to exile the creatures and only get them for your combat phase. I have grown to see this as an advantage. I […]

Commander Focus — Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire

Vaevictis, New and Improved Behold, Vaevictus Asmadi, the Dire! A new upgrade to an old classic. The previous version of this Elder Dragon had firebreathing, as well as treebreathing and swampbreathing. While this ability might be fascinating to reptilian nutritionists, it’s a bit mediocre compared to what modern commanders can do. The upgraded version gets […]

Playgroup Brews – Back to Our Roots (Part 2)

Previously on EDHREC… Hey everyone! I’m back for round 2 of Playgroup Brews! Last time we discussed two of our five Elder Dragons before the M19 prerelease: Arcades, the Strategist and Chromium, the Mutable. We got lots of great feedback, a lot of folks loved the Chromium deck, and we hope that you had fun brewing these […]
