Vampire tribal with Yahenni

Next in my series of tribal goodness we bring to our non-binary friendly neighborhood aetherborn vampire. At first I thought about building a mono black aristocrats build, an aristocrat build being a deck built around sacrificing creatures for effects, but I already had a mono black vampire tribal deck and thought that Yahenni would fit there beautifully. The standard mono black ramp usually includes a vampire, several lands, and several artifacts. This is fairly basic mono black ramp deck…

Varina, Zombie Queen

was included in the subjective reality 2018 commander deck. She really doesn’t fit there so I decided to take my zombie tribal deck and add some white along the way. The deck was a tribal zombie deck that focused on swarming the board and draining my opponents. The lords in the deck are a large part of why this deck is as good as it is, but some are pure lords and others have more interactions with creatures. Pure…

GP Los Angeles Community and Environment

I decided to fly out to California because Phil Deluca (I’ll post all of the twitter handles at the end) of the Commanderin’ MTG podcast invited me to stay with him.

It really is great to see this normally hidden side of the podcast. (I also want to…

Commander 2018 Subjective Reality Review and Upgrade

Ok this looks like it is trying to do a lot of different things. Looking at the commanders in general draws cards and flickers permanents with her first two abilities and the ultimate is switching the nonland permanents everybody controls….. Interesting. cares about the top of your deck, as long as it has an odd CMC? the one I’m personally most excited about, ZOMBIES, and she doesn’t really belong here.
