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 […]

General Medicine — Savra’s Supreme Sacrifice Engine

Welcome back friends to another edition of General Medicine! Today we’re taking a look at a two-color deck very much built around the commander championing it, Peter’s brew of Savra, Queen of the Golgari! But before we get into the list and a preliminary diagnosis, I want to expand upon the color pairing in general. […]

Weird Harvest — Control Denied

It’s that time again! Welcome back to Weird Harvest, where misfit commanders wield forgotten spells to create head scratching situations. This week we tackle a reader request from Darrenn E Canton!

Commander Focus — Wasitora, Nekoru Queen

Some people like cats. Some people like dogs. Some people like both cats and dogs, so there’s a bit of overlap on that Venn diagram. But what, you presumably ask, about the people who like both cats and dragons? Wasitora, Nekoru Queen is a hard-working mother who just wants to feed her litter of cute […]

Partner Focus — Reyhan, Last of the Abzan

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan is one lonely (and angry) warrior khan. As her comrades die around her, she rallies strength from their sacrifice and inspires the rest of the troops under her command. That inspiration is a fluid that flows from the fallen to the survivors in her presence. Whenever a creature you control […]

Trinkets & Tools — Birthing Pod

Hello everyone! My name is Dom, and I’m primarily an EDH and Draft player. I played Magic on and off since the original Mirrodin block up until Lorwyn, but then took a long break until I came back for good right before Theros. My favorite aspect of the game is brewing, and I think that is […]
