Community

 

What is your unpopular opinion regarding EDH?

 

(shamelessly lifted from the Reddit thread of the same name)

 

Adam:

  • banlist should equal reserved list, or at least be more consistent

 

Mark:

  • “Elder Dragon Highlander” was always the dumbest name imaginable and I’m glad WotC rebranded it “Commander.”
  • Bounce effects are more effective than destroy effects in EDH

 

Strategy

 

25 years of M:tG strategy:

 

How “fast” does your mana base need to be in Commander?  (Inspired by reprints of check lands and the return of shock lands in RtR).

 

Technology

 

Two favorite cards from each set:

 

Planechase 2012

 

Magic 2013

 

Return to Ravnica

 

Gatecrash

 

Dragon’s Maze

 

Magic 2014
