What's so bad about Boros?

Have you heard people do nothing but complain about Boros? Have you resisted brewing around the red and white guild because you've bought into those negative nellies? In this article, I'll walk through a fun Boros brew that doesn't lay down to the stereotypes! Boros wants to be attacking. I've heard people say that they don't like the guild because that's all it's good for. Oh, you mean you...

New Brews from Rivals of Ixalan

Who's excited about the new legendaries Rivals of Ixalan brings us? [Hands shoot up] Thought so. Let's celebrate with a quick brainstorm on some of the most interesting ones! Rivals includes a whole cycle of Elder Dinosaurs. If you brew with one of them as your commander, you even still get to call it EDH and be accurate! I won't go into each of them, but I will touch on a few of the more...

Brewing with Unstable Commanders!

Let's Brew around some silver-bordered Legendaries! Unstable has arrived, and has brought with it a whole new set of commanders for us to play with! Ones that are even officially Commander legal until January 15th. So let's brainstorm some ideas for them. And let's add that, for most of us, Commander is a casual format that we don't need a rules committee to govern. If your group wants to play...

Top 9 Hidden Gems from Urza's Block

How long have you been playing Magic? Like many of us, I played first in school, then took a big long break, and came back to the game later on. Personally, I rediscovered the game during the orignial Zendikar block. If only I had stocked up on s then! But there's no sense in dwelling on missed opportunities, so let's grab an opportunity right now! I totally missed the Urza block, but there's...

Ten "Decoy" Artifacts and Enchantments

Tired of getting all your cool artifacts and enchantments destroyed? Sounds like you need something to distract your opponents. Let's give them something else to focus on with a list of my ten favourite "decoy" artifacts and enchantments! Before I get into the list, let me explain what I mean. I think it's suboptimal to only have one or two artifacts or enchantments that are the key pieces of...

Let's Brew an Arjun deck!

Do you love brewing up EDH decks? Most of us Commander players do, and I'm no exception! So, let's brew up an deck! This is a deck I've been thinking about brewing up for quite some time now, and I thought I'd walk you through my thoughts on putting it all together. Let's Brew! I like to start by thinking big picture, and then zooming in on different categories of cards I'll be using. For Arjun,...

Standard Rotation Commander Shopping Spree!

When's the last time you updated your Commander decks? It's rotation time, so this is when we strike. With the release of Ixalan, the Standard format lost two blocks worth of cards, which means us Commander players are now ready to jump on some of them! Historically, this is when card prices are at their lowest, and the cards that we want for our 100-card decks will slowly climb forever until...

How to Play More Magic - Speed Up Your Commander Deck

How much do you actually "play" a given game of Commander? In this article, I'm going to tackle the notion of actually playing more Magic. Playing more spells, having more spells to play, and spending less time playing "draw-go" magic, unless that's your goal. Lately I've been brewing decks with the intent of getting through more of them at once, inspired by lands that have cycling on them. The...
