With the Pro Tour getting ever nearer, this week let's take a look at some of the Big Players in the current Standard.  BR Vehicles This has been one of the breakout decks of Dominaria Standard. The deck runs a very high red density to allow for the playing of . It's one of the most powerful cards in the current meta, and is certainly something worth limiting your colours for.

Partner Commanders We Wish We Had

How do you feel about the partner mechanic coming back? Partner was a great mechanic introduced a couple years ago in the Commander preconstructed decks. It allowed us to mix and match any two Legendaries with the "Partner" keyword in our command zone to combine abilities and give our deck the exact colour identity we want. And with Battlebond on the horizon, we're finally getting partners back....

Hey there everyone and welcome back to the 20th instalment of The Modern Rogue Report! I'm Cody McCowell and this week we're going to be slacking a little bit.

The Best Helm of the Host Commanders

Well, it's finally happened; I'm officially obsessed with Dominaria. First of all, it's a great return to Magic's early days that fills new players in on the history while also bringing older players back to their early days of playing. Second, it's an amazing draft format - maybe my favourite of all time. (I've only been playing since RTR) Third, it's a Commander player's absolute dream. Well...

We want to Kick a and copy it, dealing 20 damage to our opponent's face. Both and perform the role of copying a . The advantage of the Wellspring is that on the front side (), it reduces the cost of almost...

Card of the Day - Champion of Lambholt

Even though I've been playing Magic the Gathering for some time, my most recent and deepest foray into the game introduced me to Commander/EDH and the format had plenty to offer me. So much so that I went and immediately snapped up the first pre-constructed deck that appealed to me, Commander 2016's "Breed Lethality". Or, as it's better known, the Atraxa deck. While there are tons of great cards...

Diving into Dominaria Draft with Arena!

Hey there everyone, I've been writing a lot of articles about Modern for the last while but I wanted to expand my subject matter. I've been having a lot of fun with Magic: the Gathering Arena lately and have decided to take advantage of the fact that the BETA testing non-disclosure agreement period is over. Ever since Arena came out I've basically stopped playing Hearthstone. I still enjoy...

Brewing For Speed vs. Power

What do you prioritize in your Commander decks? There are a ton of dials to consider when brewing up a deck. After all, we have almost 20k cards to choose from. Yes, many of them are basically unplayable in our format, but I'm sure there's a good 8k worth considering. That's a lot of options that allow us to come down to personal taste. One of the biggest factors to consider when building a deck...
