**Worth Reading: “Andrew Jackson Highlander” series on EDHREC, by Brody Mikel.  I mentioned this series of Reddit posts on the show, but now Brody’s been picked up by EDHREC and I’m really excited to read his work.  If you like budget brews, you need to give this a read.  The first article is on Skullbriar, the Walking Grave and it’s superdope.

 

Keep up with the conversation on Facebook & Twitter.

Take for granted:

  • Not as good in multiplayer as they are in 1v1
  • Garner more hate than they deserve (usually)
  • Ultimate abilities are strictly for Magical Xmas Land
