Tribal Elves EDH

Selvala, Explorer Returned may not be most people’s first, second or even third choice as a general in a tribal EDH deck but after toying around for awhile and evaluating all the facts I think she might be the best tribal general yet! The first thing to note about Selvala is her color identity.  Selvala’s color identity is both green and white allowing the deck access to cards typically not seen in other tribal elves decks...

Counterbalance

Commander is a format that demands versatility in its cards. Some cards are more versatile and useful than others and these cards become Commander staples, others are useful too but aren’t considered to be a Commander staple.

Conspiracy EDH Review: Green and Artifact

All 210 cards from Conspiracy have been spoiled and it’s time to find the cards that can be added into your EDH collection. Please note, before I begin I with the EDH review I wanted to explain the cards that I didn’t put in this post. There are some cards that aren’t legal in Commander so those will not be reviewed. Also the cards that include the word “draft” in them will not be reviewed as-well (b/c I’m not sure how they actually...
