"Frankie Peanuts" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Frankie Peanuts" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Today, I'm offering you a Magic: The Gathering decklist you can't refuse. I'm going to try to make the messages behind this Commander deck tech as clear as a horse head at the foot of your bed. Capische? As an addition to the end-of-month fun we had with Mary O'Kill and her beloved pet Killbots […]

"Mary O'Kill" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Mary O'Kill" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Happy end of November, loyal readers! We at Bleeding Cool get that November has been long-winded, cold, and unforgiving, much like our end-of-month Magic: The Gathering deck techs for the Commander format. Personally, I think that as the months go by and winter rears its ugly head, it'll be great to just duck into our coats […]

"Thromok the Insatiable" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Thromok the Insatiable" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Happy Turkey Day to all our loyal readers from Bleeding Cool! After we wrote up our Oko, Thief of Crowns Magic: The Gathering deck tech (days in advance of Thanksgiving, to be frank), we figured you'd all probably have room for seconds. So, we cooked up another batch of deck techs for those with a more… insatiable […]

"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 […]

"Heliod, God of the Sun" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Heliod, God of the Sun" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Hey there friends and loyal readers of Bleeding Cool's segments on Magic: The Gathering! When I covered the Gods of Amonkhet over the course of the past few weeks, I did so with a purpose: I wanted to segue into a discussion of the Gods of Theros. And, now that the talk of Amonkheti deities is out […]

"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 […]

"Rhonas the Indomitable" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Rhonas the Indomitable" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Hello faithful readers of Bleeding Cool's coverage of Magic: The Gathering news! Today, I continue my analysis of the Gods of Amonkhet and their very sad, rather untimely fates. This has been done through various deck techs, and today will be no exception. We honestly did not get nearly enough of Rhonas the Indomitable in the Amonkhet […]

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

"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"

"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 […]

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

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

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 […]

"Bontu the Glorified" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Bontu the Glorified" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

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 […]

"Serra the Benevolent" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Serra the Benevolent" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

(Or, "Get In Nerds: The Party Bus Cometh!") Today in Oathbreaker deck techs, we have a Serra the Benevolent deck prepared especially for any Angel fans who wish to get into this illustrious format (created by the WeirdCards Charitable Club). This deck tech is based on a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Commander deck created by […]

"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"

"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 […]

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

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

In continuation of our pair of white Magic: The Gathering deck techs for today (having kicked it off with Oketra the True), I now present the second Commander deck tech. We are preparing for the arrival of Theros, Beyond Death through these techs, and as such we are giving special focus to the Gods in Magic. White […]

A Special Halloween Commander Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

A Special Halloween Commander Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Happy Halloween everyone! It's October 31st, so hopefully, you know what's in store for you with regards to this particular Magic: The Gathering Commander deck tech. Over the past two months, we at Bleeding Cool have been going over a multitude of different legendary creatures from Throne of Eldraine, and how they could fit into […]

"Rankle, Master of Pranks" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Rankle, Master of Pranks" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Throne of Eldraine, Magic: The Gathering's newest expansion set, is full of amazing legendary creatures. The set as a whole is based on a unified blend of Arthurian and Grimm folklore alike, making for an exquisite setting for the newest world in the Magic Multiverse. Of course, not all is daisies and roses in Eldraine, the […]

"Emry, Lurker of the Loch" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Emry, Lurker of the Loch" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Throughout the years, Magic: The Gathering has ebbed and flowed as far as being a game themed in high fantasy. Some of the sets are styled in themes similar to Ancient Greece or Egypt, one takes place in an Arthurian-inspired setting, and some are even as close to science fiction as fantasy can get. We have […]

"Linden, the Steadfast Queen" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Linden, the Steadfast Queen" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

It's been a long couple of weeks. Between Kenrith, the Returned King, the Throne of Eldraine prerelease, the Brawl decks being converted to Commander decks, My Little Pony's crossover with Magic, and so much of my procrastination getting to finally provide you with a deck tech for Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale, I've been remarkably […]

"Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

"Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded" Deck Tech – "Magic: The Gathering"

Magic: The Gathering is full of different formats – some that make certain cards better, and some that make cards worse. Today, we are shining a spotlight on Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded, a card which is infamously known to many, many players as the "worst Planeswalker card ever". However, we will be doing this through the […]
