Taking What's Mine

As we close out the year, we end another year of power creep, standard being less than ideal and commander product for next year already being teased. What better way to top it all off than to challenge ourselves with our next build for commander. In my playgroup we keep things fresh by often giving each other deck building restrictions or a stipulation for our next build. This can be a commander...

The Secrets of Mana

In commander, everyone knows that different colours have various ‘auto-includes’ in terms of your card choices. These can be cards as basic as to cards as big as . Each of these cards is generally a card on a high power level with minimal cost to include or just an effect that is necessary to keep your deck playing at every table. Everyone always talks about the spells without really focusing...

The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I hope you enjoy this more than you did Indiana Jones 4. Who goes after an alien artifact for the purpose of mind control? Why did Shia LaBeouf swing with the monkeys? How did he survive a nuke in a fridge?... Let’s just talk about instead... Often times your deck will be built specifically for your regular play group. As a result, there can be inclusions that don’t really do much at other...

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...

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...

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...
