Commander Showdown — Trostani Vs. Rhys

If you play enough EDH, you’ll see a lot of commanders with very similar abilities. This can make building a new deck confusing for both new and advanced players. Should a player interested in lifegain brew with Karlov of the Ghost Council or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic? If you like blink effects, should you choose Roon of […]

Naturally our deck compositions develop based on the results of casual games at shops, within playgroups, online games, or, for some, through competitive tournaments. While brewing decklists, whether we're aware of it or not, we go through a cycle of inquiry, action, and reflection as […]
