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 […]
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.
In this article, I will discuss the full walk-through of creating a character from our mind or imagination onto the character sheet. For example, I will be using one of my characters from an Adventures League game for the published adventure, Storm Kings Thunder.
I think it’s an innate thing instilled into every little boy to have a fondness for dinosaurs. You know what? My love for dinos has not gone away! I am so happy that they have been brought into Magic and not as Beasts and Lizards, which they were categorized as before in the game.
Welcome back, Big Daddy Brewers! The past couple of articles have been chalked full of new cards thanks to Ixalan, and this one will be too! Today we’re going to look at one of Magic’s oldest and most renown tribes in Merfolk. Tishana, Voice of Thunder is one Magic’s newest legendary Merfolk creatures, and I wanted to build a deck with her at the helm.
Okay, you’ve heard the term, especially in this day and age: Fake News. But what exactly does that mean? Is that a buzzword used to illicit distrust in the media? Or is the media really pushing its agenda further by giving you a red herring to follow away from what’s actually going on? Well, the boys at Philos Games have turned this concept into a game of political deception. Ever wanted to flat out lie to your friends? This is your chance! Push your agenda by being a liar with pants that are on fire in this fast-paced game of social interaction and back-stabbery!
One of my favorite Magic: the Gathering Commander decks that I have built would have to be my deck in which I have called Sram’s Garage. The deck is a mono-white deck but it ramps like a green deck, draws cards like a blue deck, and reanimates like a black deck.
I’ve been playing Pathfinder ever since it was released back in 2009 by Paizo Publishing. By the time I had got my hands on the Core Rulebook, I had been an avid 3rd Edition Dungeons and Dragons player, which is the rule system that Pathfinder is based off (thanks to Wizards of the Coast’s Open Gaming License). Over these past years, Paizo has released numerous books on its popular setting. Each book offers its own unique spin on the world of Golarion, which Pathfinder is set in.
Ixalan has arrived. Commander 2017 has been around for a little while now too. I have yet to focus on the newest Commander set, so I’m going to do that today. I’m also going to cover one of Commander’s newest win conditions from Ixalan: Revel in Riches. Today’s deck will also feature zero creatures outside of its legendary leader. What creature is best suited to lead a solo expedition for bounty beyond the imagination? Kess, Dissident Mage, of course.
In a lot of campaigns both published and homebrewed, there comes a time in adventures that is free time to the players, perfect examples would be for D&D and Pathfinder. This is a time that players can get a look at your world and see the diverse cultures, people, and even events. It is commonly referred to as downtime. Downtime is a great tool to use for both the DM/GM and players. DM/GM’s can use this time to both show off the people of his created cities, the way the people see the players can be seen now as well. If they have just completed a long adventure that may have changed the need for guard’s presence is certain districts, or there is hallowed ground once again after extinguishing a curse that had been laid upon the land. It is also an effective way to foreshadow the next threat that is rising or can be used as a time for you to get the next story arc ready as your players start other activities not related to dungeon crawling or adventuring.
Alright, we made it through all of the decks from our last Changes article just in time for, you guessed it (you probably didn’t guess), the newest Changes article! After some pretty boring land cuts last article and literal nothing from the new Commander set, Ixalan brings lots of new additions. Let’s break into them and take a look at the lists as they are right now!
I’ve built many different decks over the years, that’s for sure. But I always seem to come back to the white and black color combination. There’s something about it that really appeals to my style as a Magic player: synergy, which is something I often talk about in these articles.
Alright, people, we’re here this week with Feldon of the Third Path. So, my personal take on the deck is to focus more on artifact synergy and attrition than to build around Feldon’s activated ability. That’s not to say that we’re ignoring our Commander completely, of course. Feldon is the Commander of the deck for a reason, but he feels like an equal part of the 99 as opposed to the focal cog that drives the machine. Let’s take a look at the list and I’ll show you what I mean…
