12/14/2018
More
Flicker or blink? We can’t even seem to agree on what to call this keyword-less mechanic. But much like Kyle at a social gathering, some permanents just need to get away from the fray. Join us as Kyle takes Andy on a tour of the variety of blink-wares. He'll touch on the bright lights of the perfect specimens to the functional specificities. We’ll explore flicker and see if there are design purposes and misconceptions we don’t fully acknowledge as a community. Check out Kyle’s Ephara deck on...

12/7/2018

Whether it’s Jackie Treehorn’s thugs, a Cromulon, or a Goblin from Palano demanding things from you, it’s good to be on top. You just might end up with an extra look at things not meant to be seen. Join us as Andy explains how an exploration took him from seeing if lantern control with Circu, Dimir Lobotomist at the helm works and landed him on a unique build for Grenzo. The only question left after you play this deck is whether or not your opponents need one more look. Check out Andy’s...

We know, in a Cyber Monday malaise, you charged up your credit card buying what you thought were the perfect gifts for all your friends.

Dimir: Etrata & Dralnu

11/2/2018
More
Dimir. What the f**k is going on in Dimir? Does it even exist? Ask around Ravnica and you'll get mixed answers. And if it does exist, what does it do? Mill? Sure. Control? Pressure? Combo?

Life and death, it all comes full circle. Andy and Kyle take the guild series to Golgari to see what abominations are rising from the filth and detritus that the swarm swims in.

That's right, you're sick of politics IRL and out of respect to your, we're going extend politics to EDH. But just how do politics work in EDH? Is this a cold war?
