  • Eldrazi Revisited: how did their reprinting in MM2, and their new incarnation in Battle for Zendikar, affect EDH? Were Eldrazi good for Commander in the first place?




Off-color strategies.




Before you read over our questionable Entourage choices, check out the sweet Reya Reanimator deck that listener Nick sent in.  It’s definitely better than what we’re going to slap together.




Mark’s janky pile of cards that he hopes will someday be a Mono-White Reanimator deck, starring Mageta the Lion, needs some serious help.
