Commander's Brew Episode 221 - Niv-Mizzet Reborn
Restrictions breed creativity, and has a built-in restriction in that it asks us to use as many guild-coloured spells as possible, to maximize his trigger upon entering the battlefield. Sean decided to go even further and brew up a deck that's primarily Abzan. That's right, we're "dropping" Niv's main colours! The Abzan core of the deck is a recursion-based package with lots of value, but we...
Abzan Adventures - Artisan - Magic Arena - ChompydaChupacabra
Hey guys! Today we're going to be playing Artisan, a format on Magic Arena where only commons and uncommons are allowed. The deck we're playing is an Abzan Adventure deck where we try to draw cards with and get game-winning value out of .
Commander's Brew Episode 219 - Chainer, Nightmare Adept
Syr Konrad is definitely a potential Commander with a powerful ability. But what happens if we get even greedier? So, Sean came up with this deck using Chainer, Nightmare adept as the Commander. That way, we can self-mill ourselves and still have no trouble finding the Eldraine Knight! Then we can cast him and set up our winning turn! Plus, most of our early action will be filling up our yard....
Commander's Brew Episode 218 - Selesnya Angels
This deck was originally meant to be Lyra Dawnbringer to showcase the great synergy and power of angels. Since mono white still lacks a lot of the basic things you need from a Commander deck, we had to add Green. Mono white can't draw cards or ramp, but green gets to do both!

Commanders Brew Episode 217 - Vigilance the Deck!
Don't you hate having a great creature that could attack one player really effectively, but you can't because that would leave you wide open for a counterattack? That's what Vigilance is for! Here's the deck we chatted about in our podcast episode 217. It's all about Vigilance! Enjoy casting monstrous creatures and giving them all vigilance. Heck, we'll even share other keywords among the team,...
Commanders Brew Episode 216 - Golos & the Legendary Artifacts
This deck started off as a straight up legendary tribal deck. But I've already seen and built that kind of deck before. So, I started looking into the idea of just jamming a bunch of Legendary Artifacts. And guess what? It turns out it is a ton of fun and quite powerful to boot! You might want to add a few more draw sources to this and upgrade some of the mana base, but generally speaking I've...
Izzet Card Draw - MTG Arena - ChompydaChupacabra
Hey guys. Today we're going to be playing a mix of the UR Phoenix decks of old and the new "2nd card drawn this turn" decks.
Commander's Brew Ep 215 - 4 Color "Grixis" Brudiclad
This week's deck is all about , and digging for a special way to win a game. We're looking to use Brudiclad's ability to copy tokens to make a board full of and gain all the life and "50" our opponents all at once. But we're Grixis for more wheels and utility, and also splashing white because what deck wants treasure tokens but doesn't run ?
