Rebuilding Firesong and Sunspeaker, Part Two

 

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 few years 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.

Now, with Rivals of Ixalan long since released and Dominaria out as well, 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 my starting decklist for one of the more troublesome color combinations: Boros’s new Dominaria general Firesong and Sunspeaker! Let’s take a look!

Today, we’ll be looking at what I’ve done with one of the more troublesome color combinations: BURG, which was headed previously by the partners Vial Smasher the Fierce and Thrasios, Triton Hero, and now… well, let’s just say that I’ve gone with a more eclectic deck.

Let’s take a look!

Single Card Discussion: Alms Collector

 

Hello and welcome back to the Single Card Discussion series! After my pieces on The Eldest Reborn and Dualcaster Mage, 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 useful in multiplayer since it was first spoiled many years ago, and though it does see play, I’m shocked that I haven’t seen a lot of talk about it. Today’s featured card is Commander 2017’s Alms Collector, from the Cat tribal deck!

Let’s take a look!

Single Card Discussion: Dualcaster Mage

 

Hello and welcome back to the Single Card Discussion series! After my pieces on Cultural Exchange and False Prophet, 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 useful in multiplayer since it was first spoiled many years ago, and though it does see play, I’m shocked that more players haven’t looked at this for EDH. Today’s featured card is a Fork variant on a dude, Commander 2014’s Dualcaster Mage!

Let’s take a deeper look at this great copycat spell!

Building Dakkon Blackblade, Part Two

 

Recently, I took a look at our Esper deck, which had been led by general Halfdane for the last while. After seeing the spoiler for the Blackblade from Dominaria, I was inspired to rebuild the deck into a Dakkon Blackblade list. I went over my initial thoughts here.

Well, I’ve finally built the deck, so it’s time for a much more in-depth look at the direction I took with it. Let’s go!

Rebuilding Esper into Dakkon Blackblade

Single Card Discussion: False Prophet

 

Hello and welcome back to the Single Card Discussion series! After my pieces on Cultural Exchange and the myriad cycle, 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 useful in multiplayer since it was first spoiled many years ago, and though it does see play, I’m shocked that more players haven’t looked at this for EDH. Today’s featured card is Urza’s Destiny classic, False Prophet.
