    Magic Memories: Harrow

    Recently I found myself commenting on how Harrow is so good that a downgraded version of it is still a decent card. The most recent standard Magic set, Zendikar Rising, introduced a Harrow knockoff, and it's not bad. Having the lands enter the battlefield tapped is a pretty severe drawback and...

    The End of Eternity [EDH]

    I talked to some people about this deck in a Discord last month. The main topic of discussion had nothing to do with my deck really. It was just kind of a tangent. Anyway, the nice people there had some feedback for me, but I didn't do anything with it at the time and I still haven't made any...

    Magic Memories: Harrow

    Harrow was a pretty flexible source for mana-fixing in an multicolored deck and I didn't own a lot of cards back then, so I might have continued to use it for a while after I upgraded that five-color pile in mid-1998 (my whole collection fit in a single plastic tray I'd repurposed from...

    Warhammer Quest: The Sylvan Epic

    That was Mummy #1, but Ty finished it off. I'd already snapped a photo of the map and didn't go back to change it. I'll post another one presently...

    Magic Memories: Harrow

    At the beginning of the thread for Seasons Past, I noted that my extensive EDH deckbuilding efforts of the past few years and my dabbling in Canadian Highlander have been my only outlet for experience with some of the "new" cards in the game. Going through my most-played cards in EDH for 2019...

    Statistics for my 2020 EDH decks [Article]

    About a year a go, I published a statistics brief on the decks I played in the West Coast Commander League (WCCL) in 2019. At that time, I imagined that I'd probably play in more of the WCCL weekly events in 2020 than I did in 2019, and that I could do this again with more data. That turned out...

    Magic Memories: Balefire Dragon

    Balefire Dragon has earned a spot in my toolbox of EDH cards. Let's a take a look at how it got there. 07/21/19: Please Sir, Play a Legendary Land I'm really proud of this deck and it remains one of my favorite builds from the West Coast Commander League. July of 2019 had points themed around...

    The Comboist Manifesto: On Jeweled Lotus and Dark Ritual

    My third issue: Jeweled Lotus augments almost any deck built around quickly resolving a commander, while doing nothing for decks that operate on a different axis. It might seem self-evident that in the “Commander” format, decks are built around “commanders.” But the format has evolved over the...

    The Comboist Manifesto: On Jeweled Lotus and Dark Ritual

    It’s been well over a month since the release of Commander Legends. Since the set was spoiled, I’ve been mulling over my gripes regarding a somewhat controversial card in the set, Jeweled Lotus. Wizards of the Coast clearly viewed the upcoming artifact as something that should be exciting, and I...

    Magic Memories: Balefire Dragon

    Initially I hesitated to bother creating a thread for this card, simply because I don't have that many memories surrounding it and I haven't really used it so much, but let me put that in context. Looking over the numbers in my West Coast Commander League decks, I built decks with Balefire...

    Warhammer Quest: The Sylvan Epic

    Two things... I have now color-coded the actions from the first round of combat. Not sure if anyone else besides TomB saw it already, but I'd initially left it without colors because I looked at my clock and decided I'd better immediately get ready for bed. But it's fixed now, so there. There's...

    Unsavory Deeds Done Dirt Cheap [EDH]

    Last month, it was announced that the West Coast Commander League would run events online through webcams. I set up a Discord server to help with the administration of these events and the League organizer looked into the Spell Table site for running the actual games. We did some testing in the...

    Merry Christmas. I'll get back to updating the Warhammer Quest thread soon, probably. Some time this year, anyway.

    Magic Memories: Balefire Dragon

    Fine, that first post might have been a little bit hyperbolic. Slightly. But I was only half-joking! I remember that when Balefire Dragon was new, I thought of it as just being another in a long line of big, red dragons. I did notice that its ability was splashy and I probably thought about...

    Warhammer Quest: The Sylvan Epic

    Dorgath would recognize dwarven ruins and no, that's not what this is. In fact, the place generally isn't "ruined." Dorgath has been traversing these passages for a bit and I'll say that his background with stonework would tip him off to the fact that the roots didn't grow in and break into this...
