Musings of the Madman: Can't Beat the Beard!

Welcome back all! This week we're going to the lighter side of Commander and exploring an underused powerhouse in . Local Commander adept Benjamin Millette had suggested this commander to Nathan, another local enthusiast and added that it had to be: "Beard and Tree Tribal". Of course, since facial hair is involved, we're likely to find some other fun stuff like razors, oils, and so on. It should...

Counting to Nine: Tooth and Nail in Modern

I generally dislike playing linear decks. There’s a feeling of helplessness when the opponent disrupts your plan effectively, or just executes their own faster than you can. On the other hand, I do like the idea of winning games with a nine-mana green sorcery leading to a 30/30 (virtually) hexproof flying attacker. Enter the Modern Tooth and Nail deck!     If it isn't obvious, an entwined...

Commander Mondays: EDH on a Budget - Snake Value

I've been asked by a few friends to start doing some budget Commander lists on a semi-regular basis. I thought this would be a great idea to help newer players wet their feet in the format without breaking the bank. For this week, I decided to do something a little more laid back and fun. Despite my competitive nature, I do occasionally like building decks that are more on the casual side, and...

Commander Mondays: Damia's Ramp Factory

For this week's article, I've decided to cover another one of my old competitive decks. was, in its prime, one of the most salt-inducing decks I have ever built. Back when my local meta had competitive EDH tournaments, Damia was easily my favourite pile of cards to bring to the table. Unfortunately, some of the best cards in the deck have been banned, and some rules changed, so it's not identical...

Going for Gold in Toronto: A GW Tokens Primer

There and back again. The last article I wrote was about the Jund deck splashing that carried me to my first Top 8 at Grand Prix Toronto 2012. Four years later, with s replacing s, Toronto was once again kind to me, and it couldn't have come at a better time. I was Gold for two years before falling back to Silver last season, using the floating invite on the first Pro Tour in Milwaukee. I won my...

Budget Brews: U/r Fevered Control

Hello all and welcome to this weeks Budget Brews, where we try to untap the Multiverse, just a little cheaper. Shadows Over Innistrad is chalk full of build around cards, so this week we're going to look at Standard yet again. is a card that I've been seeing lists floating around the net, and have run into a few control decks online optimizing the card, and after losing a few times to it I...
