Monday Night Magic at the Murderdome: Deck Building All My Friends.

“We set controls for the heart of the sun…”  (LCD Soundsystem) We play a lot of EDH Commander in the Murderdome, especially in the multiplayer format. We really enjoy the creative aspects of deck building. Lately we have opened up our casual gaming to allow for proxied decks. This gives us opportunity to experiment with deck building ideas that we concoct. We can see how they match up...

Going Rogue: Ballistic Eggs

Hello and welcome back to Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal but it often happens anyway. Today I want to take a step back and reflect on better times in Modern.

Times when you could spend 20 minutes trying to play out your entire...

Budget Brews: U/B Summonings

Howdy Budget Brewers! It's that time of the week for us to take a gander at some of the more budget options we can play at our local FNM's. While our main goal is ultimately to just have some fun, it's all gravy if we're able to win some matches as well. It's true, janky combo's are my bread and butter but I've been known to sprinkle in a dash of control or a smidgen of aggro. Then, sometimes a...

1 Drop Creatures for Commander: Blue

Part 3 in my 5 part series of 1 CMC creatures and their value to Commander players is here! The first two parts on Green and White really highlighted some powerful strategies and some possibly overlooked cards that work well within them. This week we look at all the 1 CMC creatures in Blue and decide if they can stack up to what we've seen so far. Both Green and White each had a fair amount of...

Magic Release Shenanigans

As most of you know, Wizard's of the Coast will be releasing Aether Revolt this Friday. Aether Revolt is the second and final set in the Kaladesh block. Now that Limited will consist of two sets, as opposed to one, the format will drastically change in the weeks to come. Personally, release time is by far my favourite thing about playing magic- and not just because Limited is the best format in...
