"Isamaru, Hound of Konda" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Isamaru, Hound of Konda" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Hello, loyal readers, and welcome to another Commander deck tech article. Today, we will be going over a slightly more peculiar option in the realm of Magic: The Gathering decks that have the capacity to go tall and outspeed opponents. This deck is capable of winning games quite early, with its average converted mana cost […]

"Oko, Thief of Crowns" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Oko, Thief of Crowns" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Happy Turkey Day to all those in the United States who celebrate! To commemorate this day of questionable decisions, both in history and on the third helping of stuffing, we at Bleeding Cool have written up another Oathbreaker deck tech for Magic: The Gathering. Oathbreaker, for those just beginning to read Bleeding Cool's deck techs on […]

"God-Eternal Rhonas" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"God-Eternal Rhonas" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Welcome (or in many cases, welcome back) to our Magic: The Gathering deck tech analyses of the Amonkheti gods and the grim, grisly fates that took four out of the five of them (or is that the eight of them? The verdict is out). Currently, we are covering the fate of poor Rhonas, the "indomitable" snake-headed god of […]

"Ilharg, the Raze-Boar" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Hello friends! This brisk evening of November 19th, we are going to follow up on the previous Magic: The Gathering deck tech I posted earlier today. Hazoret the Fervent never made her way to Ravnica during the War of the Spark storyline arc, so of course in the spirit of cycle completion, Wizards of the […]

"Hazoret the Fervent" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Despite the bleakest moments in the Magic: The Gathering storyline as of late (namely the fates of the gods of Amonkhet), there's always some amount of solace that escapes, like light from a crack in a door frame. While the Amonkheti gods Oketra, Kefnet, Bontu, and Rhonas have become Eternalized and reformed into undead monstrosities in […]

Welcome! I have a second Magic: The Gathering deck tech article for you all today. Not too long ago, we at Bleeding Cool wrote up a Commander deck tech revolving around Bontu, the Glorified, the black-aligned god of Amonkhet. This article will focus on the eternalized version of Bontu, the aptly-named God-Eternal Bontu. Bontu, now […]

Hello friends! It's time again for another set of Commander deck techs styled after the best and worst of each color in Magic: The Gathering. Today, we will be looking over black, a color which may be even harder to find compliments for than blue (and hey, don't hate me for saying so – blue […]

Hey all! Today, I would like to continue my ongoing monthly segment where I check in on how Magic: The Gathering: Arena is from a player perspective.

Commander May Be Most Played Format – "Magic: The Gathering"

In news which may absolutely floor a ton of Magic: The Gathering players while being completely predictable to a good many others, Commander may be the most played Magic format. According to Magic: The Gathering Head Designer Mark Rosewater in an answer to a question posed on his Tumblr blog Blogatog, data suggests that save for extremely […]

"God-Eternal Kefnet" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"God-Eternal Kefnet" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Of all of the innovations in Magic: The Gathering, there is none so insidious as the ones which force other players to sit and do nothing while you get to play and win. These sorts of cards are tough to deal with and frustrate many a player on a regular basis. The very worst offenders among […]

"Kefnet the Mindful" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Hello friends! It's time again for another set of two Magic: The Gathering Commander deck techs. Sometimes, I find it's best to step away from the battlefield when writing up techs for my readers and take a moment to be mindful of things like burnout, writer's block, and other similar worries. But then I think […]
