Frantic takes you through his favorite black and red cards this week.
Frantic kicks off a 4 episode journey through his favorite cards in Magic. This week he covers white and blue.
Frantic takes his 2 favorite EDH decks out of his personal collection and tells you exactly how you shouldn’t be using them.
Frantic discusses the idea of fun in Magic and also why you shouldn’t limit yourself to the “best” cards in the format.
Frantic discusses 2 modern decks he believes are just a step away from being the next big thing.
Frantic introduces a new series called Frantic Works, where he allows you to join him on his way to and from work. He takes this time to discuss one of his favorite things: Magic: the Gathering.
In EDH there are typically a few things you would want to have in every deck: mana rocks, kill spells, and maybe even counterspells. But there is definitely one category that if you forget to put it in your deck then you’re probably not going to have a good time and that category is board wipes.
In simplicity, there are two methods of building a commander deck that are inverses of each other. In method one, you select the commander and then build the deck in a “top down” approach. Compared to method two where you build a deck and then select a commander that supports the colors in a “bottom up” approach.
Hopefully everyone enjoyed their holiday season and merrily celebrated. Apparently, the aftershock of returning to work in the new year has been coupled with rocketing prices in the modern format. Each day seems to witness another modern playable card price jump drastically while I am left wondering if I am able to stretch my paycheck any further.
Last week, I spent some time researching the dreaded and despised Eggs deck. I am intrigued in running the rogue deck. At this point, the deck looks budget and comboesque, both qualities that I like to consider while researching decks. However, I found that with only one effective replacement for Second Sunrise, the deck might lack the ability to recover from a turn one Thoughtseize. Then while watching Gaby Spartz stream about the “#TronLife” I found myself thinking about how Tron also plays similar pieces of Eggs. Why not combine the two decks together?
