EDH Tool Chest: Mardu Political Burn

Have you ever had issues with threat assessment in your playgroup? Ever played some value cards only to be hated off of the battlefield? Have you ever tried to play politically only to wind up helping everyone but yourself? Look no further than and ! While both have their own unique approach to political play, the general tool chest I'm presenting today will be more or less the same. With it,...

Devious Machinations – Multiplayer Politics in EDH

Multiplayer Politics in EDH are an intense aspect of the format, so much so that you sometimes have to consider them as an additional part of your deck. Certain deck styles even promote this kind of plan, seeking to make other players act against their best interest to secure a victory. There are guides and theories on Commander Politics all over the internet, but I’m going to put out several...

Your Commander Mana Rocks Are Outdated

When's the last time you updated your Commander decks's mana rocks? Maybe things are fine as is, but innovation means always challenging the accepted norms! I'm going to look at some classic "staple" mana rocks we use and see if we can't find a place for some newer, less used ones. I want to start comparing with . Let's consider what having them in our opening hands would mean. comes down for...

Should you care about your Commanders power and toughness?

Do your creatures' stats really matter? Yes. Yes they do. Thanks for reading! If you like it, check out my other articles! All kidding aside, I'd like to take a moment and figure out exactly how much they actually matter. I suspect we don't think about the numbers at the bottom right of creature cards as much as we maybe should. Except for Level Up creatures or Kamigawa flip cards. We look in...

Splashing a colour in a Commander deck

Have you ever wished we were allowed to splash a colour in a Commander deck? I certainly have. Well, with a little creativity on how we pick our Commander, we can accomplish just that! The brilliance of this game is the colour pie and how each colour's identity is so clearly defined in what it does. Each has its own strength and weaknesses, and I really want to shore up a colour pair's weakness...

The Art of Magic: Building Your Deck

There has been a lot of discussion over what makes someone a good Magic player. Some say that the deck makes the player, some say it's how the deck is played. Others go as far as to say that dedication to the brand and flavour is the way to go. It's all subjective because the fun of the game comes from so many things. I can't tell you how to enjoy the game. What I can do is give you some tips on...

EDH Staples: Red

In a format where your commander will decide almost every detail of your deck, it is a bit strange to talk about staples. In fact there are examples of cards that could be considered “strictly weaker” than others that gain power with the right build (ie: vs in an Aristocrats style deck). So in order to alleviate all your worrying, this article will only cover spells that can go into any Red...

The Difference Between Good Bans and Bad Bans

No matter the format, whether it's competitive or casual, card legality is an important issue. Banlists are an important part of any format. While cards may be banned for a variety of reasons the reasoning is usually the same: the card is too powerful. However, in other cases the reasons may seem confusing or even downright nonsensical. But what makes a good or bad ban? That is a topic of...
