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   Recently updated !

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 […]


The Scoop: Magical Supplements – Rivals of Ixalan Pt 2

The official release of Rivals of Ixalan was last week, so let’s take a look at four more cards from the set that I’m loving. In sets past, I’ve seen more obvious synergy jump out at me (beyond the obvious tribal implications). In this set, my eyes just weren’t focusing […]


The Scoop: Magical Supplements – Rivals of Ixalan   Recently updated !

The full release of spoilers has had time to simmer, so let’s take a look at a handful of cards coming out in the new set that could provide some spice for the Modern and Commander formats. And, of course, my love for the dinosaurs is going to come out […]


The Scoop: Casual Contemplation – Shirei Shenanigans

One of the first decks I ever built was around one of my favorite cards in Magic – Shirei, Shizo’s Caretaker. I loved the card so much, but I didn’t have the Magic community around me that was interested in EDH at the time, and even then I found the […]


The Scoop: Casual Contemplation – It’s Raining Drakes   Recently updated !

Sorry the post is a little late…December can be a rather busy time. As I have admitted to before, I have a disease…which leads me to infatuation for cards based solely on their art. The trap has led to many wasted nights trying to force a deck to work. One […]
