Grab the Dice Bag! It’s Time to Play Magic!

There was a time that the closest Magic the Gathering got to dice were those non-D20 rolldowns or in some UN-Set. But that has all changed! Dice rolling has come to standard with the first D&D crossover to the actual Magic card game; Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. We’ve already seen cards in all colorsContinue reading “Grab the Dice Bag! It’s Time to Play Magic!”

Desert Doom Draw: Iymrith Casual EDH

No doubt, there are a lot of great cards from Adventures in the Forgotten Realms that will see play in Commander. Volo, Tiamet and Xanathar are the top runners right now and, believe me, there are already a mess of deck lists and articles coming on the top tier decks. But one of the deckContinue reading “Desert Doom Draw: Iymrith Casual EDH”

The Party Mechanic, Forgotten Realms and Tokens!

You know what they say when you assume something? Yeah, that one. Well, last Renewal hit big with the Tavern Mages here. It was especially exciting to see MTG go to the Forgotten Realms. Strangely enough, when Zendikar Rising debuted around the same time as these groundbreaking announcements, one of the new mechanics caught ourContinue reading “The Party Mechanic, Forgotten Realms and Tokens!”

Tourach, Dread Cantor: Casual EDH Discard Deck

There are a lot of good choices for commander in Modern Horizons 2; some very powerful and many terribly expensive mana-wise. So, thinking of a cheaper mana value choice, I came upon Tourach, Dread Cantor. Despite the fact that it has the optional kicker mechanic, it is, at its base, a two drop which makesContinue reading “Tourach, Dread Cantor: Casual EDH Discard Deck”

The Trees are Alive: Squirrel Tribal finds its Commander!

There has always been a faction among the MTG faithful who have LOVED squirrels. They have waited and hoped that someday there would be enough squirrel cards or ‘squirrel adjacent’ cards to make a decent Commander Deck. The only problem? No Legendary Squirrels. They Kaldheim hit and Wotc found the perfect time to drop theirContinue reading “The Trees are Alive: Squirrel Tribal finds its Commander!”

This Week in Jank: Strixhaven’s First Few Weeks

By BDC Hey guys, been busy in the brewery deep within The Magic Tavern, so I’m just now surfacing from brewing Strixhaven’s new set of cards! It may not hold the power of Eldraine or Theros Beyond Death, but it is definitely going to change the meta with five new ways of looking at halfContinue reading “This Week in Jank: Strixhaven’s First Few Weeks”

This Week in Jank: Mace of the Valiant (Historic and Standard)

The aforementioned Jank is brought to you by BDC and The Magic Tavern I’m always looking for a card or combo of cards to wear the hell out of. But, as long as I’m finding ways to make the card work, I’ll keep brewing it. Thus is the case of the Mace of the Valiant.Continue reading “This Week in Jank: Mace of the Valiant (Historic and Standard)”

This Week in JANK: Izzet Gods?

Hey, gang. It’s BDC with another Week in Jank. Just when you think there is no Jank to be had, you find those little tidbits in the strangest places. Full disclosure: The deck showcased today is still in development. And maybe it should be dismantled and made in to two or more other decks. ButContinue reading “This Week in JANK: Izzet Gods?”

This week in JANK (Or combos you may have missed)

BDC here. I’m not much of a netdecker. I do have a mono white life gain deck that has nearly gotten me to mythic that is your run of the mill for that color and gimmick. But that’s about as close as I get. For the most part, I’m always on the look for thoseContinue reading “This week in JANK (Or combos you may have missed)”
