Treasured Finds: Sarulf, Realm Eater

Welcome back to Treasured Finds: a place to appreciate Golgari and Witherbloom in Commander. The other day a friend of me asked how I felt about the proliferation of potential Commanders. Overall, I’m fine with it as it not only gives more people access to different avenues of self expression but it also can enhancesContinue reading “Treasured Finds: Sarulf, Realm Eater”

Svogthir’s Study: Sisters of Stone Death

Hello and welcome to Svogthir’s Study: a place to appreciate Golgari in Commander. It’s been a month since my last entry into Svogthir’s Study and it’s not for lack of desire. When I started this project I was furloughed and figured I would make use of the hours in the day. Well, my furlough endedContinue reading “Svogthir’s Study: Sisters of Stone Death”

Svogthir’s Study: Savra, Queen of the Golgari

Hello and welcome to Svogthir’s Study: a place to appreciate Golgari in Commander. When I saw which Commander was up next in my own arbitrary order I felt a pit of dread rise in my gut. It wasn’t that I was worried about writing about this card. Rather I was concerned with confronting my ownContinue reading “Svogthir’s Study: Savra, Queen of the Golgari”

Svogthir’s Study: Iname as One

Hello and welcome to Svogthir’s Study: a place to appreciate Golgari in Commander. I struggled to sit down and write this one. Bodes well for the second article in a series, right? The truth of the matter is this: Iname as One is not a good Commander. I’m not saying you can’t run it orContinue reading “Svogthir’s Study: Iname as One”

Svogthir’s Study: Vhati il-Dal

Hello and welcome to Svogthir’s Study: a place to appreciate Golgari in Commander. I’m a dinosaur when it comes to Magic. Many elements of the game that feel intrinsic and vital today were, at one point, novel. I don’t think there’s a better example of this than multicolored (gold) cards, especially those that feature enemyContinue reading “Svogthir’s Study: Vhati il-Dal”

Svogthir’s Study: An Introduction

My name is Alex Ullman and I’m a Golgari player in Commander. Over the course of my time playing Commander I have almost never not had access to at least one Golgari deck and usually have two at any given time, and that’s me demonstrating restraint. I love what black and green bring to CommanderContinue reading “Svogthir’s Study: An Introduction”

Center Stage: Sire of Stagnation

You thought I was going to talk about a common today? Think again! I hate this card in Commander. I have trouble articulating why when this hits the table I seethe, but I have less of a problem with the extremely similar Consecrated Sphinx. I think a not so small part of it is thatContinue reading “Center Stage: Sire of Stagnation”
