Battlebond: Basically, EDH Masters

 

Last year was a pretty good time to be playing EDH. Lots of new cards have been released that are specifically tailored for our format, from giant monsters, to big silly spells, and everything in between.

As of Friday, the full spoiler for the multiplayer set Battlebond was released, and everyone has had a chance to brew around the new cards for their EDH decks.

How does this set stack up? Does it continue our run of good to great EDH sets? Let’s take a look!

Dominaria in EDH

 

What a spoiler season it’s been for Dominaria, Magic’s spring set. First, the Chinese release notes were accidentally spoiled, leading to ~100 cards being spoiled. Then, Wizards released the English notes, so that people weren’t working with misinformation — this let us know that these leaked cards were legit. Since then, we’ve had a steady flow of new cards and information, letting us know that the Dominaria set was a truly awesome one, and one to really look forward to.

There’s been a lot of Dominaria spoiled since that initial flow. Let’s take a look at what I’ll be using in EDH!

A First Look at Dominaria

 

Last Thursday, the Chinese release notes for the spring MTG set, Dominaria, were accidentally released. In a smart move, Wizards released an English translation, to make sure everyone had the right information about the set. This of course gave everyone a ton of new info about this eagerly-anticipated set and spoiled a ton of new cards, and hype levels went up even farther than they were.

Today, I’ll be delving into the release notes, and I’ll take a look at what promises to be an excellent set for EDH. Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Let’s go!

Rivals of Ixalan in EDH

 

Last year was a pretty good time to be playing EDH. Lots of new cards have been released that are specifically tailored for our format, from giant monsters, to big silly spells, and everything in between.

Now, the Ixalan expansion set, Rivals of Ixalan, was released last month, and everyone has had a chance to add the cards to their EDH decks.

It has taken me a month to work out what I wanted to say about this set. Do I think Rivals continues Wizards’ strong run of good multiplayer sets?

A Look at Unstable’s Generals

 

It’s been a busy week here in geezer-land, as preparations for the holidays are underway. The tree is going up soon, decorations are laid out, and my son is very excited to meet Sant — ah, who am I kidding, he’s a baby, he’s not excited about anything but food right now. Heh.

Regardless, there’s been a lot of buzz in the MtG community this holiday season, with one excellent reason for it: a third Un-set, Unstable!

Though I have very carefully avoided social media and all spoiler sites, I have nonetheless seen a handful of the cards from this set, and I am pumped to play it in a week. Let’s take a look at more silver-border cards!

The Ixalan Transform cards in EDH

 

The last year or so has been a pretty good time to be playing EDH. Lots of new cards tailored for our format, from giant monsters, to big silly spells, and everything in between.

Ixalan has been released, and with it, we now have lots more Merfolk, Dinosaurs, Pirates, and Vampires, but also we have a new ten-card cycle of rare transform cards, each of which is a fantastic EDH card.

It’s been a long time since a set came along where I wanted to use every card in a cycle in my EDH decks, so today we’ll be going over each of these cards.

Let’s take a look!
