All journeys must begin with taking first steps. I remember its inception clearly: I was sitting on the couch watching television after a long day at work. After awhile, the existential dread began to set in. I began to wonder what I was doing with my life. When people constantly would tell me, "why are you working here? You need to be doing art, design, music, writing, etc..."
Hey there, Big Daddy Brewers! There’s been a pretty significant event since our last meeting. All of Rivals of Ixalan has been spoiled! So, of course that means we have an entire new set to brew and brainstorm with. The card we’re building around today has been spoiled for awhile, but I wanted to wait for the entire set to be spoiled before writing about it in case there were some other cards in the new set that would be strong inclusions. Including the Commander, today’s deck features three Rivals of Ixalan cards, which isn’t a lot, but one of them is the Commander, and that’s a kind of a big deal. So, here we go, I present to you all: Ghalta Dredge!
In this article, I’ll be sharing my knowledge of the difference between a power player and a roleplayer. These two gamers are always at the gaming table in almost any tabletop RPG group. Most likely you are one of them or close in between which is a good spot to be in my opinion.
Hey there Big Daddy Brewers! This week’s deck features the color of magic that I typically avoid: White. I don’t build/play a lot of White decks. It’s easily my least favorite of the five colors. One of my favorite things that White does well, however, is care about enchantments. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that this week’s deck is an Enchantress deck! There are a few different ways that you can take enchantments in Commander, everything from Zur Combo to Oloro Prison to our choice here today: Selvala Enchantress.
A few weeks back, a friend of mine reached out to me for some help with his Meren deck. As I was providing assistance to him, I realized that I wanted to build a Meren deck for myself. I was going to take a different route than him, however, since I tweaked his to be drastically themed with the Dredge mechanic. I should probably run the same mechanic, but for now, here is what I built:
Hello again, Big Daddy Brewers! Today the goal is to go big. The deck is all about ramping and doubling your mana. Which, of course, means it’s playing Green Black. There’s not a lot more to introduce about it this week, so let’s dive into the tongue-twisting alliteration that is Mono Mana Maga.
Bolt Action (BA) is a 28mm 1:56 scale tabletop wargame that allows you to recreate battles from World War 2 from the start of the war in 1939 Poland to the final battles in the Pacific, and everything in between.
Introduction: Reflections on Boggsimus Games, Moving Forward, and Noah Kirk. I have often contemplated how my website could benefit the community as a whole. Sure, we put out some articles based on things that we find interesting in the tabletop gaming world, notably with Magic: the Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, and Pathfinder. It became … Continue reading In the Spotlight: Noah Kirk
Welcome back to another installation of Big Daddy Brews. This week’s focus is not on a particular Commander but instead a particular card. This week we are building around Standard’s short-lived former all-star Seasons Past. Seasons Past far exceeded my expectations in Standard, and the same holds true in Commander.
When Paizo first annouced Starfinder a few years back, I became very excited. I love Science Fiction and I love Fantasy, so having both melded together made me scream like a little girl. I had been following the different spoilers that Paizo was slowly releasing on Starfinder over the months and getting myself very pumped up for its release.
Sol Ring, Ubiquitous Commander all star. If you’re not playing Sol Ring in your Commander deck then you’re generally putting yourself at a disadvantage before the game even starts because you can almost guarantee that every other deck at the table has included the one mana artifact. So this week’s deck building inspiration? Build a deck that can justify omitting Sol Ring.
