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...

How to make sure everyone has fun in EDH

We have all seen it before. You sit down with your friends or a new EDH group. And someone, or a few people, seem to consistently win, completely demolishing the others. It doesn’t bother some people but it may leave others feeling dejected and put off by the group or the format. If less people want to play with you or less people want to play the format, that is not good. Though multiplayer...

Taking a look at Tiny Leaders

(Before we start this column, we’d like to extend our deepest sympathies to the citizens of France and in particular those in its capital, Paris, who are still reeling from last Friday’s terrorist attacks. The world’s hearts beat with yours.) Welcome back everyone. This week we’ll be examining the Tiny Leaders format, a Commander variant which may come closest to Legacy play for those...

Introduction to EDH Part 6: Mono-Green

For my last article on getting into EDH, I'm going to go with what is probably the most well-rounded colour in the format; Green. Spontaneous Growth, Epic Proportions, and Relentless Beasts Green is the colour of natural elements, druidic magic and untamed wilds. Green combines the togetherness of White, with the savagery of Red. Probably why those colours are its allies. No Weakness in Nature...

Going Rogue: Knightfall Revisited

Hello and welcome back to another edition of Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal but it often happens anyway. Actually, this week we're revisiting a deck I wrote about a few weeks back, and tuning it, so I guess winning is the goal this time. So sue me. (Don't worry, there is still some spicy tech to be found here regardless. Winning doesn't have to be boring.) The deck I'm talking about is...
