Should This Be Banned - Part 4

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-04-25)

Welcome back to Should This Be Banned. Last time we looked at cards that win the game with little to no effort. This article is probably the most exciting piece; looking at potential additions to the banlist! Keep in mind that this is a highly opinionated article and that I encourage you to discuss these cards and others in the comments.

Should This Be Banned - Part 1

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-03-04)

We all know the hype and speculation about ban list announcements made by WotC for Modern and Legacy. But what about the commander ban list? Who takes care of it, and why are certain cards on there? Today, Robert wants to explore beyond our kitchen tables and into the broken, degenerate, format that Commander can be.

Commander 1v1: Life After Wizards?

ConstructedBy Elric (2019-02-25)

WotC supported Commander 1v1 for a meager nine months. Now, the community is left without a clear vision of where the format is headed. But Commander has always been a fun format and always will be, so players should be determined to forge ahead with or without Wizards. Pietro is here to let you know where he thinks the format is headed.

Foresight for Commander - A Budget Sphinx Tribal Commander Deck

ConstructedBy RyanS (2019-01-30)

Ravnica Allegiance introduces a new sphinx with a powerful ability. Sphinx of Foresight allows you to scry 1 at the beginning of each of your upkeep. Furthermore, if Sphinx of Foresight is in your opening hand, you can reveal it to scry 3 during your first upkeep. Can these abilities make Sphinx of Foresight good in the commander format?

Paying My Rent or Paying for My Commander Mana Base

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-01-18)

If you enjoy playing multiple Commander decks, getting the perfect mana base can be a huge investment. Fortunately, there are plenty of options that will make your deck run like clockwork without having to invest an arm and leg. Let's look at some of the basic rules I keep in mind when it comes down to the mana base of multicolored Commander decks.

Why Standard-Plus Should Be a Singleton Format

EntertainmentBy HansD (2019-01-08)

Happy New Year, and welcome back! 2019 has a lot of new things in store for Magic as whole, with Magic Fests, E-Sports, and the introduction of a new format come October. There's plenty of speculation about what this format will look like, but I won't be bringing you any today in my article. Instead, I want to offer a suggestion: the "Standard-Plus" format, as it is currently referred to by Wizards of the Coast, should be a singleton format in the interest of the health of the format.

ConstructedBy RyanS (2018-11-27)

Ryan is back with more Commander deck techs. This time he's playing politics with a group hug pet project. Join him as he explains the art of the "deal."

Paradoxical Outcome in Vintage: The New Hotness?

ConstructedBy Elric (2018-10-25)

Vintage format has been revolutionized by a card capable of winning games at instant speed and all on its own. It's not only because of its raw power, but also because of how easy it is to build balanced and synergistic decks around it. Pietro is here to tell you everything you could possibly want to know about Paradoxical Outcome in Vintage.

Reyhan and Ikra Budget Golgari Deck Tech

ConstructedBy RyanS (2018-10-16)

Building a Commander deck is a fun, but daunting task, especially if you are on a tight budget. In this article, I will try to explain the thought process of building on a budget using cards which cost less than three euros each.

Forgotten Heroes: Power Surge

EntertainmentBy SanchoN (2018-10-11)

In this first installment of a new series, Forgotten Heroes, Sancho dusts off the red enchantment Power Surge. From being the terror of many a kitchen table, this card has now transformed into a nearly useless piece of cardboard and a reminder of an archaic set of rules from the old days.

Lord of Specters: Nicol Bolas Commander Deck Tech

ConstructedBy RyanS (2018-09-04)

M19 gave players the origin of Nicol Bolas his very own flip walker, to symbolize his getting a planeswalker spark. This means that commander players now have the opportunity to build Nicol Bolas decks with a decent Bolas commander. In this article, I will showcase a particular build for [Nicol Bolas, the Ravager] that focuses on hand disruption and reanimation.

A Forbidden Love: Krav and Regna Commander Deck Tech

ConstructedBy RyanS (2018-08-15)

Battlebond reintroduced partner commanders and even though it was a bit different from their 2016 debut, the Partner mechanic did not disappoint. Having two commanders is a powerful option in the ever-popular Elder Dragon Highlander (EDH) aka the Commander format. In this article, I will be looking at an unusual pair: Krav, a demon and Regna, an angel – lovers and partners. Here's a casual fun Commander deck built around them.

Fallen Empires Strike Back

EntertainmentBy SanchoN (2018-07-30)

Ridiculed, despised, and even hated, but never forgotten. The early Magic expansion Fallen Empires has a reputation like few other sets in the history of the game. One thing the once mighty empires of Sarpadia cannot be accused of, though, is being boring. Join us on an archeological dig into the piles of cards from one of the most overprinted and least appreciated products from Wizards of the Coast. Hidden gems and surprises await us under each layer … and perhaps even some of Magic's rarest and most expensive cards.

How to Beat MUD: A Vintage Tier 1 Deck for 15 Years

ConstructedBy Elric (2018-05-23)

Most archetypes in Vintage Magic have defining cards which have not changed over the years. MUD, however, has changed entirely, yet it remains as one of the decks to beat. Why is that so and how can this deck be beaten?

Rock Around the Cube

LimitedBy SanchoN (2018-05-18)

A good mana rock gathers no moss – it is often an early pick in a Cube Draft. Some mana rocks are even first picks every time and considered too good for many a limited environment. In this installment of Cube for Squares, we climb the Big Rock Candy Mountain and survey the landscape for pebbles, boulders, and paleolithic power tools to include or leave out of your Cube.

5 Dragons You Might Meet on the Battlefield

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-03-23)

Dracarys! Despite their typical casting cost being midrange and beyond, Dragons always find a way to show up in decks of all kinds. Their current situation across the formats is not too shabby, and not just in red-based builds. Here’s a selection of the flying terrors all the cool kids are playing.

The 5 Best Land-Fetching Spells and Their Categories

EntertainmentBy Kumagoro (2018-02-14)

In a typical game of Magic, lands are the main mana producers, the fuel for the majority of spells and the more fuel you have, the farther you can travel along the mana curve. Enter several categories of spells whose main or only purpose is to increase your land count, for a variety of purposes.

I don't know whether you are into new year resolutions or not, but my favorite resolution each year is to never stop learning.

Always bring a spare

FinanceBy DrHoeh (2015-12-02)

The Commander 2015 decks might not have brought relevant cards for Legacy, but that doesn't mean that they weren't highly relevant for the Commander format!
