A Brawl Remembrance: Gishath (Ixalan) Part 2  22h51 24 août
I love this deck. It deserves a long post broken into two parts. Here, I continue to show how these cards interact in solitaire play. There should be a Panharmonicon deck with Dinosaurs someday...Dinosaurs that fly are great, and when they can make a non-flying Dinosaur fly, that’s even better...

A Brawl Remembrance: Gishath (Ixalan) Part 1  22h36 24 août
This is my favorite of the four tribes, with Merfolk a close second. Drop big critters for the win; what’s not to like?Commune with Dinosaurs is important to smooth out the Dinosaur drops, or, in an emergency, to avoid mana screw.If you are allowed to have enough creatures on the board, Ghalta is...

A Brawl Remembrance: Admiral Beckett Brass (Ixalan)  18h30 24 août
This deck requires some thinking. There are several cards that yield incremental advantages. It is also hard to pilot in solitaire because there’s no other player to abuse. Still, it’s a really fun deck.The tribal artifacts have been more important in this deck than I thought they could be. The...

A Brawl Remembrance: Kumena (Ixalan)  09h11 21 août
This deck has made me realize how good Song of Freyalise is. Unimpeded, the counters just keep coming.Guardian Project is a card draw engine, and Deeproot Elite will give one of my Merfolk a counter when I cast a Merfolk.Tapping Kumena is tricky, because you are trading not attacking for card...

A Brawl Remembrance: Elenda (Ixalan)  20h13 18 août
This is a fairly linear strategy: drop Vampires, beef them up once in a while, tutor for them once in a while, and as they die in combat, Elenda gets bigger. The End.Legion Lieutenant is a good pick for tutoring.It’s a fairly liner deck... drop Vampires, protect them, win (if possible).Here is a...

A Brawl Remembrance: Tatyova (Dominaria)  16h56 18 août
This is one of my favorite Legendaries from Dominaria. I so wanted to make it work, but it is one mana too heavy to be amazing. It’s just fun at five mana. I love this deck, and it’s a shame that this card will soon be rotating out of Brawl. This card and this deck make me nostalgic for what the...

A Brawl Remembrance: Jhoira (Dominaria)  14h15 18 août
There were many more low cost artifacts for Jhoira when Kaladesh was in Standard. It’s still somewhat viable as a casual Brawl Commander. This deck has a complex plan to make it work: you need good non-artifact cards before Jhoira comes in to set up steady mana, and a steady flow of low cost...

A Brawl Remebrance: Valduk (Dominaria)  23h45 03 août
I am really looking forward to the revival of Brawl in the Fall. In the meantime, here is a current brawl deck in the now dead format. This deck has three cards that work on similar themes: Valduk, Champion of the Flame, and Krenko. It should still do OK with a background of Goblins and a four drop...

A Brawl Remebrance: Krenko Goblins (War of the Spark)  22h56 03 août
I am really looking forward to the revival of Brawl in the Fall. In the meantime, here is a current brawl deck in the now dead format. There are more than enough Goblins to make this deck, but there is only one Goblin lord, and a four-drop. I used artifacts from Ixalan block to get some benefit out...

A Brawl Remembrance: Marwyn Elves (Dominaria)  22h02 03 août
I am really looking forward to the revival of Brawl in the Fall. In the meantime, here is a current brawl deck in the now dead format. There are barely enough elves to make this deck.Proliferate works great in this deck.Here is a Nissa ultimate.All of the Forests in the deck... nice Proliferate...

Animar Commander Elementals [mostly Magic 2020] Part 2  19h42 03 août
I made a few changes: added some dual lands.Added a counter-maker, and a big tutor.Garruk is a little too restrictive, but I think he is better than Regal Force in this deck.Another manabase helper.And out of the gate I get mana screwed for Green... it happens.Biogenic Upgrade at work.Before Garruk...

Animar Commander Elementals [mostly Magic 2020] Part 1  19h36 03 août
I have been having some fun in solitaire with this casual deck. At some point I plan to get Animar on paper, but not this Summer.Once you cast a few creatures (they don’t have to be Elementals ), Animar is letting you cast them only for their colored mana costs. It’s addictive, and the reason why...

The Irony of an EDH spike  21h11 18 juin
A spike in the price of a card is usually abbreviated as a ’spike.’ EDH, or Elder Dragon Highlander, or Commander, used to be the format were junk rares (and mythics) were put to good use. No longer; now, there is a competitive EDH, or cEDH format, in which players jam their decks with every...

Deflation  09h58 15 juin
Prices of the old cards went up by a lot during the buyout phase of the Magic bubble. The bubble is still there, same as the other bubbles in the U.S. economy. I wanted to take a quick snapshot and see if there is any deflation already happening. I see very little deflation. I am waiting for all of...
