Commander Focus: Lurrus, of the Dream Den, you can Count on him

Credit: Slawomir Maniak, Wizards of the Coast Given the impinging Halloween and the strange year, I think it's important to bring up a topic that may be of much concern, and is very relevant and very serious. Who is the best...

Commander Focus: Karona, the False God says “FU, have this”

Credit: UDON, Wizards of the Coast Karona, False God is kind of a strange card in a game that's ostensibly two-player. Why play a creature your opponents are going to get to control? Karona's effect is not entirely dissimilar to...

Commander Focus: Kroxa, doesn’t want the turn to end

Credit: Chris Rahn, Wizards of the Coast One of the more exciting cards to come out of Zendikar Rising for Commander players is probably Omnath, Locus of Creation. We might call this Omnath the IV, or Omnath's fourth iteration. Hopefully,...

Zendikar Rising EDH/Commander Review: The Lands are back in town

Zendikar Rising has a theme of “lands matter” much like Theros had “enchantments matter”. So there’s a number of creatures with landfall abilities that will probably make a splash in commander, especially in less competitive games. Potential Commanders Tazri, Beacon of...
