Big Daddy Brews: Omnath, Locus of Mana

Welcome back! Last Big Daddy Brews I promised that we would look at my Omnath, Locus of Mana deck. This deck has evolved with me as I’ve gotten better at Magic and subsequently Commander. I first learned how to play Magic when I was sixth grade or so. I didn’t play for a very long time before quitting the game for about six years. When I finally returned to the game, it was because a group of my friends had been playing Commander. The social aspect of playing long multiplayer games appealed to me, but I had a condition: Whatever deck I played had to be Mono-Green because my sixth-grade kitchen table deck was Mono-Green.


In The Spotlight: Zatcaskagoon Miniatures

Zatcaskagoon Miniatures caught my eye when I was scrolling through my feed on Facebook, which incidentally is the predominant way in which I find content. I was blown away by the intricacy and attention to detail that accompanied his miniature painting. I knew I had to reach out to Kendon and ask him if he wanted to have a spotlight on this site!


Big Daddy Brews: Apostle Storm

So, last Big Daddy Brews we went over the mild additions that Hour of Devastation brought to my collection of decks. In that installment, we went over card choices and the logic behind them, but we did not explore any of the lists in depth. This week’s take is going to change that. I’m going to do an article for each of the four decks featured in the last article. Which, if you care to, you may read here. We’ll be starting off with Apostle Storm because it’s the unique of my four decks in that I took somebody else’s deck, made some revisions to it, and called it my own (kind of).


Commander Kerfuffle: The Malady of Control

Too many times I have sat down for a game of Elder Dragon Highlander only to be met with the most grueling assortment of legendary creatures that my Local Gaming Store could amass, complete with strategies that are low to the ground and unrelentingly aggressive. As someone who prefers to play Control, regardless of format, I seem to be at a disadvantage. Control functions differently in Commander than it does in any other format for a variety of reasons. This article is a lamentation and analysis of how the Commander format favors creature based strategies and shuns alternate win conditions such as mill or a “win clause.”


My Top 5: Terribad Magic Cards

love Wizards of the Coast’s Magic: the Gathering. I mean, I have multiple articles on it. I run Commander tournaments at my local game store. I have spent a lot of money building decks over the years.

With that being said, there are some cards out there that make me want to literally throw something. So here is my list of My Top 5: Terribad Cards in Magic.


Boggsimus Builds: Marath’s Enchantments

I first picked up Marath’s Will of the Wild deck back when the 2013 Commander decks came out. When I first created the deck, I decided to only use cards from the official Wizards of the Coast Commander decks card pool. After playing with that version of the deck for about a year, I decided I wanted to actually construct a Marath deck with little limitations.

Roleplaying Games

What is Your Favorite Class in a Roleplaying Game?

There’s an array of different roleplaying games out there to choose from, especially since tabletop gaming is “in” right now. I will say, it is a good time to be a nerd! Because these games are getting in the spotlight more and more, we are starting to see diverse communities spring up around them.

So I pose this question to you: What is your favorite class in a roleplaying game?
