Welcome all to another edition of the Daily Dose of Oath of the Gatewatch, where today we will be looking at some of the new cards being previewed for the second set of the Battle for Zendikar block.

Five EDH resolutions for the New Year
Good day all! To begin I’d like to thank all of you for reading and, of course, Dave Tellier for providing me this comfortable part of webspace to rant and imagine on the topic of my favourite format, Elder Dragon Highlander, AKA Commander.

Modern Masters was better than Chronicles, but the comparison is so lopsided that its virtually worthless. The release of Modern...

Good day again all! With the Christmas holidays fast encroaching on our time and occupations, why not look at the spirit of receiving instead of giving? Yes, a holiday that puts a new twist on the time honoured Secret Santa and turns it into a Secret. ? This can’t end well, can it? Keep reading and find out! The Origins of Grixmas MTGCommander.net’s Random Chatter section spawned this event...
