Why You Too Should Play European Highlander

ConstructedBy Ratix (2020-01-06)

Before Commander caught on, players had already been enjoying a singleton format for years. It was named Highlander — originally for the catchphrase of the 1986 cult classic which stipulates that "There can be only one," but the format also seems to want to live forever.

Green's Noncreature Evergreens

ConstructedBy Dr-Exhume (2019-12-12)

Green is best known for huge creatures like Force of Nature or Avatar of Might. These cards shaped the perception of the color for a long time.

Wasteland Misplays and You

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2019-09-18)

Wasteland has been a mainstay of the Legacy format ever since its introduction. The card is very unique and efficient at what it does, so it's natural that players make a lot of mistakes while playing with it.

Today, Robert wants to explore beyond our kitchen tables and into the broken, degenerate, format that Commander can be.

Dangerous Propositions: Dark Depths

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-02-19)

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-01-31)

When Magic players think of lands, they’re most likely thinking of mana sources, or the way to get to mana sources. After all, dropping a land is the first action that takes place in almost every game of Magic. But what about those peculiar lands that are game-enders rather than game-starters?
