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...

Where are all the Modern Mardu decks?

Until the Khans of Tarkir block, one of my main goals was trying to get a Grixis deck to work. I wasn't alone. There was no shortage of discussion threads in communities like Reddit talking about how to put together some sort of combination of s, s, and even . With the Khan’s block, , and dropped onto our laps cementing their roles in a number of competitive Grixis variants. All it took was a...

Introduction to EDH Part 5: Mono-Red

Three colours down, two to go. This week I'm discussing what's considered to be a simple, yet very fun colour to play in Magic. Mono-Red. Lightning, Fire, and Insanity. Red is the colour of impulse, emotion, and generally being very simple. Red mages don't think too about their decisions, they just cast every that they draw. But this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Did I Mention Fire? Red's main...

A Higher Standard: Time After Time

Alright. I have five cards in hand my opponent has none and I currently have 3 counterspells at the ready for whatever he draws. I just need to keep attacking with this Shambling Vent. There is no way I could lose. “TIME!!! Active player finish your turn…….” NO! I have my opponent dead to rights but it’s going to take at least 5 more attacks for me to finish him off. I don’t deserve...
