Silver-bordered cards are EDH legal until Jan 15!

Hmmm.

Yes. All the 'joke' ones. There's a new set coming out soon.

I do like crow storm though:

I have no interest in playing joke cards really.

they should just print crow storm in a normal set!!

when is iconic masters going to be cheapest. in a couple of weeks?

Crow Storm would be fine in EDH at least. I don't see anyone playing Empty the Warrens.

The squirrel lord would be good with Ghave!



Yes, it's worth waiting a couple more weeks for Iconic Masters cards. They should keep dropping.

I need to get Teferis for every blue deck!

Some unstable cards have multiple versions with different text boxes but the same name and collector number. Very Cryptic Command has at least five (here are some of them).



I like this!

Planeswalker deck Vraska from Rivals:


Use the ultimate, then activate Crypt Rats (it doesn't say combat damage) and kill all opponents at once! Definitely something that could realistically happen.  :icon_lol:

The +2 is a bit weak. Ob Nixilis Reignited is better, if you aren't already playing that.

It's so hard to get an ultimate though! Unless you use doubling season/doubling fish or loads of proliferate, it never happens. Plus it's so tempting to keep using that -3.

i like the merfolk commander type dude!

I thought that bg flip land was risky- in case your thing gets exiled or something. but guess in ghave when can just instantly sacrifice whatever!

crikey, loads of good stuff for vamps, merfolks and dinosaurs.

Dinosaur edh deck will be rally scary now! Gishath into any of the elders!

green elder dragon goes in most green edh decks i reckon.

I love that immortal sun thing- obviously. Hope it's not too expensive.

Hmmm, no enemy-paired rare duals. Just a reprint of those uncommon taplands. Dominaria will have to have something.

At least four new vampires I want to add to Edgar Markov! Probably more.

Yes, dinosaurs have enough proper creatures for a deck now. No need to play the filler ones! There's even an alternate 3-colour commander.


I thought that bg flip land was risky- in case your thing gets exiled or something. but guess in ghave when can just instantly sacrifice whatever!

It's definitely risky if you don't have a sac outlet. But if Ghave's in play it's very hard to stop it from flipping.

The blue/green flipland is good too, but I'm not that fond of the others.

I like Azor the sphinx!
