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

Hello, loyal readers, and welcome to another Commander deck tech article.

Oko Thief of Crowns Deck Tech &#8211 Magic: The Gathering

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

And while it makes perfect sense that Oko is banned in Standard Magic play (and even in Brawl!), Oko's niche is really within Oathbreaker.What do you think? Is Oko too strong for the one true Planeswalker-centric format? Is this deck weaker than you'd prefer, by contrast? Let us know! And enjoy the pecan pie.[caption id="attachment_1121974" align="aligncenter"[...]

"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 […]

Hazoret the Fervent Deck Tech &#8211 Magic: The Gathering

"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 […]
