Fate Reforged and What It May Bring

Fate Reforged is on the horizon. Sarkhan has made his trek, with the assistance of Narset, to the resting place of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon in hopes that he may quell the voices that ravage his mind, all the while avoiding the bloodthirsty Zurgo Helmsmasher, who Sarkhan once called his clansman.

Narset: Attaining Enlightenment

It’s been quite a while since I last posted anything here, but with Khans of Tarkir on the horizon, I just can’t keep my mouth shut concerning the new Legendary Creatures we’re getting our hands on in the coming weeks.

In a previous article, found here, I discussed the differences between constructed format and casual format archetypes, and found–unsurprisingly–that they typical archetypes found in the Commander format are essentially all Hybrid Archetypes. No single deck will be entirely Aggro, Control or Combo. Most will contain aspects of at least two of these types, if not all three. In that article, I covered Reanimator decks, Token...
