Commander Focus: Zada, Face Grinder

Spring boarding off of my previous go-wide tokens deck with Rhys the Redeemed, today we're pivoting in a much different direction with an all-in mono red Storm style deck, everyone's favorite! We're here to make friends and take 30...

Unstable Mutation: Riveteers Rampage

A jund blitz deck is very up my alley. Blitz lets you cast creatures, giving them haste, and then when they die you get to draw a card. Additionally, they are sacrificed at the end of your turn. 702.152. Blitz 702.152a...

Commander Focus: Rhys’s Pieces

In Commander, it's generally best to build your deck to handle a wide variety of threats and game conditions instead of jamming it full of redundant, win-more effects that you think are cool and don't want to cut. HOWEVER,...

Streets of New Capenna Review, Part 1 – The Mechanics

Magic's newest expansion has us journeying to the metropolis of New Capenna, a place built by angels but now fallen to the rule of five Demon-led crime families. A new set means new mechanics, and we've got a healthy...

Commander Focus: Enshrining Life

Shrines have been around for a bit, a cycle originally in Champions of Kamigawa, then a return in Core Set 2021. Finally, the return to Kamigawa in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty saw another cycle of shrines. The second and third...

Commander Focus: Xander Cruise

New Capenna is upon us, almost any day now, but technically this deck isn't legal yet, and may even get tweaked a bit as the cards are released but for now, given all the back and forth about Lord...
