Sacrificial Recipes with Lyzolda

Now that I've finished my introductory articles on the format, as well as my obligatory post regarding the new Commander products from Wizards, my articles will find themselves having a bit more of a pattern to them. One such pattern is going to be a new in-depth deck list every other week. Today we're going to cover a deck I made early in the year, with at the helm. Blood, Attrition and Card...

Going Rogue: The Transformative Sideboard

Hello and welcome back to Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal, but it often happens anyways. Remember that sealed prerelease you did a few years back, where you couldn't decide between the black-red aggro deck, or blue-white control... so you did both? Bringing a second set of sleeves to a sealed event is a must, because sometimes your second best 23-or-so cards turn out to be the better of...

Modern Charms

There are a lot of ostensibly powerful cards that don’t see play in modern because they are just a shade too slow or too conditional. The ever-present threat of a turn 4 kill keeps spells clustered around 1 and 2 mana, and the need to interact with (or race) fast and unfair decks means even the modern brew will usually lean on cards like to keep itself in the game long enough to do something...

GP Pittsburgh: Meta summary

GP Pittsburgh's high attendance (over 2,500 Modern players) gives us a significant sample size to analyze. When over 300 decks are making Day 2, you can rely a little more on the data that comes out of the event as you have additional granularity with your data. For the uninitiated, I'll be referencing the articles provided by the mothership: Day 2 Metagame Breakdown and Day 1 Undefeated...

Revisting the “Rofellos Rule”

Welcome back everyone! This week we’ll be looking back into the format’s history and seeing a proposed way to resolve the issue of aggressively costed commanders, nominally the Rofellos Rule. Named after , the rule was implemented by the Rules Committee in their playgroup to avoid early blowouts. Essentially, it’s stated as follows: “When you cast your commander, if it costs less than six...

That Time of the Year

Well it's November, Americans are getting over turkey-induced comas while us Canadians already have to deal with excessive Christmas advertising. But there's only one thing this time of year that gets me excited, and that's new Commander decks. Skeptical Speculation When Wizards of the Coast quietly confirmed that this year's Commander decks would be the enemy coloured pairs, I know many people...

Primer: Anya, Merciless Angel in EDH

“No mercy. No respite. No matter what.” - Memorial Inscription Hello, MTGCanada readers! I've been on a somewhat lengthy hiatus due to changes in my work schedule. I hope to write for you on a more regular basis now that things have slowed down a little. On Friday, Commander 2015 was released, bringing us 10 new commanders, all in enemy colour combinations. I was really excited about this,...

Going Rogue: Abzan AristoGOATS

Hello and welcome back to Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal, but it often happens anyways. Now before we actually get into this article, I need to apologize for something that happens every so often amongst brewers and writers - duplication. People have similar ideas, put them both to paper, and invariably the second one turns out to be a lot less exciting than the first. So if you find...
