Giveaway Time! Death and Destruction

Recently, we reached 2k followers and we wanted to celebrate with all of you! Once again, we wanted to give away something that every could use, and who doesn’t like blowing things up? We’ve got Dreadbore to hit critters or planeswalkers, Ryusei for grounded creatures, then Foil Arc Trail & World Queller for whatever you want to deal with. If this hits more than 500 notes, we’ll have two winners to better your odds. The runner up will receive something shiny, something gold, and something mythic based on the cards available for each category last giveaway

What do you do to enter? The same as always! Reblog this post, be following our blog, and we’ll announce the winners tentatively on Thursday evening at 8pm PST.

Best of luck to you all, and thanks for helping us get this far. We couldn’t do it without you 🙂

Nice site and wonderful contests. Check them, people!

Hey everybody! In preparation for my first modern event and the deck I’ll probably be helming, I’ve made some tokens! Can you guess the deck? I bet you can. Feel free to use these if you like, print them out at home, etc. but to the skeezebags out there- THESE ARE NOT FOR SALE. I know you’ll try and sell them anyway, and the community is poorer because of it, but you know, all in good fun.

Special thanks to all of the artists who I sampled for this project- each can be found in the artists credit on each card. 

Where can we download these for printing?

Hey, great job as always with the challenge. No new challenge (yet) just wanted to say I really appreciate the job you do here on Tumblr. EDH is a really important format to me, and I wish there were more blogs as informed and willing to help with it as you are. I do have one quick question, and that is, do you know of any blogs that do a similar thing for standard? Where you can submit a deck idea or a request, and have it built or doctored? Thanks so much, keep up the great work! -Kat

I’m glad I can help the EDH/Commander community, but my work here isn’t totally selfless. I’m the kind of person that likes solving puzzles, and helping people build Commander decks scratches that itch; I especially appreciate the challenges you give me because they usually require more thought to solve than the average deck submission.

To answer your question, I’m not aware of other blogs like mine, but I also don’t go out of my way to look for Standard content. Do any of you readers know of any blogs that do Standard deck doctoring or which take deckbuilding requests?

Not so much a blog, but a combo iOS app and discussion forum. It is called iMTG, and it covers almost anything Magic related. Check it out, my name is the acme on there, too!
