Single Card Discussion: Ezuri’s Predation

 

Hello and welcome back to the Single Card Discussion series! After my pieces on Amonkhet’s new Mouth // Feed and Commander 2013 gem Opal Palace, it’s time to take a look at yet another multiplayer gem that I feel has been sadly overlooked.

Today’s card is one that I’ve thought was highly useful since it was first spoiled, and though it does see play, I’m shocked that more players haven’t looked at it for EDH. Today’s card is the Commander 2015 green Wrath, Ezuri’s Predation.

Let’s take a deeper look at this powerful sweeper!

Rumored Leaks from Commander 2017

 

This summer, we’re being treated to an early gift (depending on how you look at it): this year’s batch of EDH pre-constructed decks, which this year, are tribal decks.

Well, someone has posted some spoilers on Twitter as to the various contents of one of the decks, and these are fairly legit looking… so let’s take a look at them, and see what impact they will have (if real).

The Tribal Throwdown — Building the Surprise Entrants, Part Two

 

It’s no secret, I’ve always liked Magic tournaments. The thrill of doing well is a natural high, and it’s always fun to see who can do the best.

We have a tribal EDH tourney called The Tribal Throwdown coming up on the horizon, where we’ll be smashing the various tribes of MTG (Zombies, Elves, Merfolk, etc) together to find out who is the best tribe, and which tribe will come out on top.

As I’ve done for each of our other tourneys, I’ve built a number of surprise entrants for this one. Today, we’ll be looking at the second batch of these entrants, and discuss them in some detail.

Let’s take a look!

Single Card Discussion: Opal Palace

 

Hello and welcome back to the Single Card Discussion series! After my pieces on Amonkhet’s new Dusk // Dawn and Mouth // Feed, it’s time to take a look at yet another multiplayer gem that I feel has been sadly overlooked.

Today’s card is one that I’ve thought was highly useful since it was first spoiled, and though it does see play, I’m shocked that more players haven’t looked at it for EDH. Today’s card is the Commander 2013 land, Opal Palace.

A Major Rebuild of Saskia

 

Welcome to another edition of the article series where I go over changes to my different EDH decks in detail (and where I trash them and rebuild them into something better).

There have been a number of my decks over the last year that have been on the chopping block after disappointing performances and poor games, and many have been culled or changed. Much as I have done before, I rebuilt decks that just aren’t working; this may involve either changing some cards around deck to deck, changing who the general of the deck is, or completely overhauling the entire deck. Since early last year, I’ve been going over each set of changes and additions to my EDH decks, and man, have there ever a lot of them!

Today, we’ll be looking at our new four-color deck, as we rebuild Saskia the Unyielding, swapping in nearly 20 new cards (one fifth of the deck!)

What does this rebuild look like? Let’s find out!

Today, we’ll be looking at our new four-color deck, as we disassemble Anafenza, the Foremost and make a second attempt at building around Commander 2016’s legend Atraxa, Praetors’ Voice.

What would this rebuild look like? Let’s find out!

Single Card Discussion: Commit to Memory

 

Hello and welcome back to the Single Card Discussion series! After my pieces on Amonkhet’s new Pull from Tomorrow and Kalemne’s Captain, it’s time to take a look at yet another multiplayer gem that I feel has been sadly overlooked.

Today’s card is one that I’ve thought was great since it was first spoiled for Amonkhet, and I’m shocked that more non-Nekusar players don’t mention it for EDH.

Today’s card is the new aftermath card, Commit // Memory. Let’s take a deeper look at this potent card!
