Dusters 11 – Halloween

October 28, 2014

by Judson AKA GUDoug



Greetings everyone!  Halloween is upon us and what kind of content provider would I be if I didn’t take advantage of it.  In this weeks Dusters I do the impossible…avoid dressing up all my characters (something I love doing) in a holiday edition celebrating a day where everyone dresses up.  Don’t worry though because there is no way that I couldn’t have at least one costumed character.   As always I hope you enjoy this week’s Dusters and have a happy Halloween.

Whether you call it ramp or acceleration, getting ahead of the game’s normal mana base progression (having 3 mana available on turn 3, 4 on turn 4, etc.) is a pretty sweet thing. Unfortunately, your opponents tend to notice things little things like the fact that you just farted out four or five lands on your last turn by chaining your Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Oracle of Mul Daya off of your turn one Exploration into your green sorcery du jour.


All of the sudden, people around you are getting salty just because you have more lands on your side of the board than they, collectively, have permanents on the table. Just because you have a tendency to cast Genesis Wave for 30 on turn eight or nine doesn’t mean that you’re a bad person, but it does ensure that your playgroup will put a virtual hit out on you faster than a side character in a mob movie that just broke the omerta.

One-Two Punch: Selesnya

October 24, 2014

By Dodo Bird Commander writer Ryan Zeitz


Hey everyone, Rhyno here charging at you with the tenth and final installment of “One-Two Punch”, a 10-part series where I show you 3 powerful card pairs, one 2-color guild at a time.

I’ve had a blast writing this series and hearing about the awesome one-two punches you guys are playing in your own decks.

These are NOT combos in the traditional sense that they instantly K.O. (cuz that’s below the belt). Instead, they’re the jab and the uppercut you need to get back in the fight when your opponents have you cornered.

Green-white is Selesnya…Let’s go!

As always, full shownotes after the page break.
