Day of EDH

Just letting it be known that I am hosting a day of EDH on Saturday the 15th of December. It’ll be at my new place starting at 11.00am. Please let me know if your thinking of turning up, I’m sure you can think of a way to contact me. All correspondence that mentions that they need my address will receive my address. If you need to contemplate public transport I live nearly as close to Rosanna station as is humanly possible (ok, there are a dozen houses closer, but thats close right)

EDH: A Review of My Decks

Playing against a friends EDH decks yesterday I realised how poor my choice of generals is. My two decks currently use Adum Oakenshield and Nicol Bolas, both powerful effects but not as good matches as the Zur the Enchanter and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind.

Adum and Zur both fill similar roles in the deck, getting a repeatable effect reliably early in the game. The problem being that Zur’s effect is always useful, grabbing an early Phyrexian Arena can be game winning. Early raise dead effects aren’t so fantastic. I really enjoy playing my Adum deck, but rarely does Adum see play (although it can be important when he does).

I don’t think that Nicol Bolas is a bad general, and it fills a similar role to Niv-Mizzet, I think the problem their is that the deck is built in a very unfocused manner. I wont bother to fix the deck as it doesn’t excite me. So now I need to find some new generals to build around, so I’m going to post a few articles on possible legends following this one.
