The Scoop: 2018 Commander Themes and Art   Recently updated !

I am a rather large fan of the EDH/Commander format. I like the length, variety, synergy, expansiveness. It’s all good. So I like to keep a close eye on the new Commander decks to see what they have to offer. While we don’t have any specific card spoilers, we do […]


The Scoop: Elementary EDH – Ur-Dragon Love

As previously mentioned in my Jungons EDH deck post, I’ve built 2 dragon EDH decks. I have a great respect for the Jund color identity encompassing much of what dragons stand for, so even with the Ur-Dragon release, I couldn’t justify tearing apart my Jungons for a rainbow Ur-Dragon deck. […]


The Scoop: Magical Supplements – M19 (Part 2)

M19 has released a lot of juicy new spoilers since we posted last, and it has shown an affinity for dragon tribal. Now, I don’t think I need to bother admitting again my undying love for dragons on here, so…I won’t…Yet, I didn’t pick the two dragons below based on […]


The Scoop: Magical Supplements – M19

Core sets generally offer a smorgasbord of flavor, spanning all sorts of sets and reprinting staples to keep them in Standard. Any given booster can be incredibly rewarding or dishearteningly devastating, pulling a rare you have 20 copies of already from the other core sets, or a new rare that […]


The Scoop: Magical Supplements – Dominaria Pt. 2

Dominaria adds so much fun to Casual EDH because of the Brawl format being introduced through the set. It makes it worth two posts looking for fun Commander cards. Here are four I’ve looked at as interesting. Demonlord Belzenlok Belzenlok offers a fun mechanic as a mono-black Commander in a […]


The Scoop: Magical Supplements – Dominaria

It’s time for our look into Dominaria in Casual Modern/EDH! As usual, I’m going to pick a handful of cards that I find interesting for use in Casual Modern or EDH decks. Dominaria offers an unusual aspect, particularly for EDH, with a major focus on Legendary cards, going as far […]


The Scoop: Magical Supplements – Masters 25

As a generally Casual player, Masters sets provide a unique opportunity. It tends to make certain 1-of cards affordable for EDH and 4-of cards possible for 60-card decks. It opens up possibilities for supplements where I otherwise would’ve gone for a cheaper option. Considering these cards are all reprints, there […]


The Scoop: Elementary EDH – Jungons

Before dinosaurs became a thing, my two favorite creature types were hydras and dragons. That really hasn’t changed. I’ve found that hydras have a harder time conforming to an effective deck (which hasn’t stopped me from running a good chunk of them in my Animar EDH deck), but thanks to […]


The Scoop: Casual Contemplation – Old Skittles   Recently updated !

Running Infect is a stigma of Magic. It’s commonly frowned upon as “easy mode”. And for good reason. A good Infect deck preemptively cuts an opponent’s life total in half. It’s Wither and Poison put together into one mechanic. It was also one of my first decks ever, and it […]


The Scoop: Top-8 Debate – The Energy Constant

I haven’t given up on my attention to Dinos in Standard, but it’s looking like that, even following the recent Standard bans, things aren’t looking up for much outside of Energy and RedDeckWins, which were the two deck builds that suffered the most from the bans. They still remain at […]
