Incite Merciless Retribution

It’s good to be critical, especially when evaluating things in Magic. This could be judging the strength of your decks or knowing when a card is too janky to be of use to you. When it comes to the Wade Into Battle deck (Red/White) for the 2015 Commander set, I can safely say that this is the worst one of them all. To reiterate, the deck is absolutely dreadful to use right out of the box. There is little synergy and it takes WAY...

Deckbuilding Cantrips: Give It Some Flavor

Akros is the city of champions on the plane of Theros. Watched over by Iroas, the God of Victory; Akroans are bound by honor, glory, and courage. They’ll be the first to step up and eradicate a horde of Minotaur just to defend their city. They’re the MTG equivalent of Spartans. When Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas was spoiled for the 2015 Commander set earlier this year, I set my sights on returning to Theros and raising hell...

Gifts Ungiven: Shopping for MTG Players

Where did 2015 go? Am I right? If you’re still reading this, you’ve passed my test. You know why? Because you’re smart people. And smart people know that it’s THAT time of year again.

Luckily, if you subscribe selectively, you can avoid all of the...

Hello again CMD Tower readers! It is I, Jace, ready to “Wow” and sway your enthusiasm with another Commander/EDH deck that I hold quite dear to my heart. If I have said it once, I have said it a million times; I am not a black player. When I got into Magic back-in-the-day (which I can and am obligated to say), I was all about white cards. Knights, holy spells of healing, and my personal favorite, bird soldiers. Black cards...

Rise of the Elven Dictator

“Eyeblights. That is the name the Gilt-Leaf Tribe has given to the various unsightly creatures that wander freely through our woods. We elves are the pinnacle of beauty and grace. We fight endlessly to rid our plane of anything that doesn’t meet our standards. Despite countless hunts, our efforts have been fruitless. However, new allies have arrived in the forests of Lorwyn. People able to cross the Blind Eternities into...

Leaps Above Survival

Ever since Evolutionary Leap was spoiled I have seen many posts stating that “it’s a strictly worse Survival of the Fittest” but in my opinion this is not the case, Evolutionary Leap is in-fact better than Survival of the Fittest. I realize that this is a HUGE claim so I’ll walk you through my thought process. To start lets put the two cards side by side… Both Survival and Leap are enchantments with the...
