One-Two Punch: Azorius

October 12, 2014

This entry is part 9 of 10 in the series One-Two Punch

By Dodo Bird Commander writer Ryan Zeitz

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

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.

Blue-white is Azorius…Let’s go!

This entry is part 27 of 37 in the series Generally Speaking

By Imshan AKA Sinis

While reading about Commander decks on the internet, it’s easy to become lost in the sea of optimal card choices, or the phenomenon of ‘pimping’ decks with foils, altered art, or signed cards. While devotion to a diversion is not something I discourage, many players find the excesses in EDH particularly troublesome, especially when their regular playgroup will occasionally win out with sheer card quality. The fact that Commander significantly overlaps with Legacy and Vintage makes many of the cards we’d like to include in our decks extremely expensive.

In particular, powerful cards associated with Legacy like revised dual lands, Sensei’s Divining Top, Force of Will, and Vindicate all carry a heavy sticker price. Even strictly casual cards, like Death Baron and Lord of the Undead have inflated values. If Magic is just a goofy hobby to you, spending hundreds of dollars building or improving a deck might leave a bad taste in your mouth, even when you want to stay competitive with your local group or the folks at your local game store. The good news is, there are often alternatives to powerful cards that are only slightly inferior to their exorbitantly expensive counterparts. This week, we’ll take a look at expensive blue cards, and what they can be replaced with. Read the rest of this entry »
