The Other Side of the Rotation
With Throne of Eldraine hitting standard and several sets rotating out, let’s talk about some of the heavy hitters that may be rotating out of standard, but with their now lower prices, should be rotating right into your favourite EDH deck. Many commander players won’t put new cards in their decks until they’ve been out for several months or are due to be obvious staples in the format (see...
Commander’s Brew Ep 215 – 4 Color “Grixis” Brudiclad
This week's deck is all about , and digging for a special way to win a game. We're looking to use Brudiclad's ability to copy tokens to make a board full of and gain all the life and "50" our opponents all at once. But we're Grixis for more wheels and utility, and also splashing white because what deck wants treasure tokens but doesn't run ?
Commander’s Brew – Clone, Copy & Borrow – 214
Hey Everyone, Andy here with a new decklist! Cloning, copying and borrowing is all about mimicking the best stuff on the table but not drawing too much heat for it. Usually in these types of decks stealing is also included. But I noticed that people HATE that. So, instead we will "borrow" things from our opponents' libraries! They haven't invested any resources into these things yet so it's not...
While You Were Sleeping on Control
Gather round young commander players! Settle down while I tell ye a tale, of Bill Pullman’s romantic comedy days and how he won the girl without using blue as one of his colours! Normally when players begin planning out their sweet new commander brew, they always begin with the base colour of blue. This is a logical conclusion for most players since you get access to counterspells, card...
Commander’s Brew – Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero
brings a new flavour that Boros hasn't ever had before: Decent recursion! This week, Sean brews up a list aiming to take advantage of all sorts of creatures that can enter the battlefield for real benefits, including an Ally package! Throw in some artifacts we can sacrifice for value, and a couple ways to loop Gerrard back into play from the graveyard and we can be a bit of a combo deck as well!
Apocalypse Now: Board Wipes Edition
One of the more consistent ways to make sure your opponents don’t create an overwhelming board presence is to maintain control of the board. While you may be used to running your standard board wipes such as , or , I’d like to offer a few alternative options that won’t break the bank or maybe even be a little more fun. This is definitely one of the more fun board wipes available. Being one...
Lord Windgrace, or How I Learned to Stop Winning and Balance the Game
Power creep is something that most casual EDH players are more than familiar with. Once a player starts increasing the power level of their deck, each other player has to respond in kind or suffer through that player winning repeatedly. The main other solution is to just hate the player out and leave them having a less enjoyable time. I offer you the path of least resistance; make the whole table...
Commander’s Brew – Elsha of the Infinite
Hey everyone, Elsha takes advantage of creating numerous tokens at instant speed to surprise your opponents with a massive attack out of nowhere. A classic Jeskai spells deck, this Elsha list plays a little differently in that most of our spells will create or buff creatures in addition to drawing us cards and countering spells. Comfortable on the attack or defense, this deck is a ton of fun to...
