Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

So a combination of my own success at prereleases and listening to LRR generally be in favour during TTC, I put together a quick werewolf and friends deck. I don't normally play quite so aggressively as it seems to warrant, so I'd appreciate any advice. Deck: Werewolf? There Wolf! I have to ask - a...

Re: TTC 121 - Shadows Over Innistrad Spoilers Part 2

Graham is exactly wrong while being technically correct in his statement about Samurai and Ninjas - all 37 actual Samurai (so not counting Changlings or Mistform Ultimus, which are the reasons he's not just stone incorrect) have Bushido, and all 10 actual Ninjas have Ninjutsu (only 8 of those origin...

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

So my question relates to off color flip cards in commander. For example, could I run the new avycn in a mono white commander deck, or would I need to run red as well? Another example would be Elbrus, the binding blade. Could I run it in a non black deck? Not a judge, but the answer is no to both o...

Mer-Ek Nightblade is a straight monster in this deck. Grixis, Rakdos, Izzet, Dimir ... such value! A couple fun facts about Marchesa - if a cr...

Orbs of Warding is probably not ever actually going to be good in limited, but it puts in some serious work in the Commander deck I have that runs it (where it replaced another source of hexproofness that I used to use).

An observation on the last thing Cam said: Casting Titan's Strength EoT on their turn WAS the correct play with Willbreaker, if you'd done it on your own turn you still would have taken their creature (and pumped it), but then you couldn't attack with it. Because Mind Control effects don't grant the...

Important thing to note about creatures that have Double Strike and Trample - ordinarily if you have more damage to assign during the first strike step than blocking creatures have in toughness, you assign lethal damage to the blockers and trample the rest over, and then assign all of your creature'...

Oh man, I love licids. Well, not all of them, just one really: Tempting Licid , which is a Lure that you can use over and over again, unlike all the other cards that do the thing that you'd run Lure for.
