The potency of Landfall abilities has been discussed heavily as playing a land is a special action that doesn’t use the stack making it near impossible to interact with....

Zendikar Commanders Rising: Omnath, Locus of Creation

Omnath returns, and as expected picked up the fourth colour. Four colours, four mana, four abilities, on a 4/4 body. They really went for it this time around. My main goal was to use and abuse the second landfall ability to add WURG to your mana pool.

The latest Commander precons gives us . You might expect us to try to fill up our graveyard with all the different keywords and then voltron up, right? Then you don't know us very well! We're going to mostly focus on a couple keywords. Deathtouch and Indestructibility. Sure, a couple of extra keywords might slip in there, but if we're able to attack (or sit back and defend) with deathtouching...

The Shard Defining Commanders

Every once in awhile, the conversation among Commander players turns to the question of "format defining" or "the best of the best". I’m not usually a fan of the latter, but the first question of how the format is so often defined is a question that I find interesting. Not from a standpoint of "combo, control and aggro", but from what are some of the most commonly played or definitive...
