Going Rogue: Abzan AristoGOATS

Hello and welcome back to Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal, but it often happens anyways. Now before we actually get into this article, I need to apologize for something that happens every so often amongst brewers and writers - duplication. People have similar ideas, put them both to paper, and invariably the second one turns out to be a lot less exciting than the first. So if you find...

How to make sure everyone has fun in EDH

We have all seen it before. You sit down with your friends or a new EDH group. And someone, or a few people, seem to consistently win, completely demolishing the others. It doesn’t bother some people but it may leave others feeling dejected and put off by the group or the format.

Going Rogue: Knightfall Revisited

Hello and welcome back to another edition of Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal but it often happens anyway. Actually, this week we're revisiting a deck I wrote about a few weeks back, and tuning it, so I guess winning is the goal this time. So sue me. (Don't worry, there is still some spicy tech to be found here regardless. Winning doesn't have to be boring.) The deck I'm talking about is...

Where are all the Modern Mardu decks?

Until the Khans of Tarkir block, one of my main goals was trying to get a Grixis deck to work. I wasn't alone. There was no shortage of discussion threads in communities like Reddit talking about how to put together some sort of combination of s, s, and even . With the Khan’s block, , and dropped onto our laps cementing their roles in a number of competitive Grixis variants. All it took was a...
