It is a coincidence - red is my least favorite magic color, so in a four letter username, I had to choose one MTG to omit. My favorite 4 color commander is Saskia though, prominently featured on my profile.

you clearly don't know how percentages work. 28/60 is a HIGHER percentage than 30/70. you clearly have no idea how this game works. 17 years and you've learned nothing. wow.

28 lands in a 60 card deck is the equivalent of 47 lands in a 100 card deck. yet none of your commander decks have 47 lands. so you're being inconsistent. 28 lands in a 60 card deck is too many, and proves you've not actually ever played a 60 card format. do some testing online (its free, no excuse not to) and you'll quickly realize 28 lands is far too many. especially in decks where the most expensive mana cost is 3.

The newly-revealed sprite dragon from Ikoria is superior to Stormchaser Mage in the majority of situations, so I shall replace the mage with the dragon in this deck.

Sprite dragon is superior to Stormchaser Mage in the majority of situations, so I shall replace the latter card with the former card in any decks that contain it.
As a side note, I am very surprised that it took this long for Magic: the Gathering to have a fairy dragon, since both Dungeons & Dragons and Warcraft have already had such creatures for many years, now, so I hope that WotC further explores that combination of creature types for MtG in the future.

Lutri, the spellchaser from Ikoria has preemptively been banned in EDH format, despite the fact that that card was revealed only today and will not be released for several weeks, which makes this the first time that a card has been banned in EDH before it was released.
That card has not yet been added to this website's database, so I shall add it to this list after it is in the database.

SquirrelPenguin, are you serious? The card was revealed only today, and will not be released for several weeks? How can the Commander Committee know the effects that that card will have on the format before it is even released?

xtechnetia, to what "absurd design mistakes" are you referring?
April 2, 2020 2:39 p.m.
The new Vivien is very nice, and, while I cannot fit her into any of my existing decks, if I ever make a new deck, I shall definitely make an effort to put her into that deck.
I hope that planeswalekrs with abilities other than loyalty abilities do not become commonplace, as they tend to be very powerful, and I also wish for them to remain special and not become ordinary.
The commanders from Commander 2020 are fairly impressive, but I do hope that they contain some excellent reprints, since I have mentioned numerous times that some cards have become very expensive.

The previews have begun!
First, WotC finally revealed the details of the mutate mechanic, and I like it, because it is very similar to bestow from the original Theros block, and it does not not warp the game's rules too heavily; alternatively, it could be considered a better version of meld from Shadows over Innistrad, since that mechanic was too esoteric for this game, in my mind.
I see that WotC has chosen for the factions (or triomes) in this set to be wedge-colored, so I wonder if the names of the factions (Savai, Ketria, Indatha, Raugrin, and Zagoth) will become as popular as the names of the Tarkir clans when referring to those color combinations, but I imagine that that is not likely, since the names of the clans are already so popular. I also like how each faction does not seem to have a central color; all colors are equally important to the identity of each faction.
I do not like the keyword counters, because there was not good reason to make them, and, when WotC eventually posts a survey for this set, I will make my dislike for them clear, so I hope that they do not return after this set, although I will admit that luminous broodmoth is quite nice.
I dislike how void beckoner is an 8/8 with deathtouch, because deathtouch is supposed to give creatures with lower power and toughenss and advantage over more powerful creatures, and there also is very little reason to hardcast that creature; In my mind, nine time out of ten, it would be better to cycle it and put a deathtouch counter on another creature (remember that cycling can be activated at any time that a player could cast an instant, so that shall make a nice combat trick).
The companions are interesting, but I shall not use any of them in any of my decks, because I dislike restrictions on deckbuilding.
I have been annoyed in the past by the frequency with which Pacifism has been reprinted, but, in this case, it is a very suitable card for this set, so I shall not complain about it.
The majority of the cards revealed, thus far, are nice, but nothing utterly astounds me, just yet, although perhaps I simply am difficult to impress.

Many players make jokes or memes about how amazingly awesome of a card Storm Crow is, and, while I admit that it is not a weak creature, it is also nothing spectacular, as least not by today's standards, so I do not understand how it achieved the fame (or perhaps infamy) that it now has.
What does everyone else say about this? How did Storm Crow achieve its status and reputation?
April 1, 2020 10:44 p.m.
Previews for this set begin (finally) tomorrow! Is anyone else here excited? I know that I am!
April 1, 2020 1:36 p.m.
fatalzintomyum, yes, that was an idea that I had in my mind when I designed that card.
March 31, 2020 9:46 p.m.
Boza, you do have excellent points, but WotC created this mechanic, not me, so the genie is now out of the bottle and cannot be put back in, so I see no reason to not take full advantage of it.
March 31, 2020 12:38 p.m.
MagicalHacker, that would be an interesting idea, but I imagine that WotC would prefer to use their own artwork, akin to how they no longer use quotes from real-world literature outside of core sets.
March 30, 2020 10:20 p.m.
This deck is definitely an interesting idea, but how is it supposed to win a game?
I strongly recommend putting Faeburrow Elder in this deck, because, for only one mana more over Bloom Tender, it can potentially have higher power and toughness, it has vigilance, and is far less expensive in terms of money.
I also think that Stoic Angel would be a very awesome card for this deck, unless she would hinder its strategy.

Flooremoji, I am very glad to hear that, since I have been playing this game since 2003, before modern was established.
March 30, 2020 6:06 p.m.
Flooremoji, I really hope that WotC does not allow legacy and vintage to die out by ceasing support for them, as that would upset many long-time players, who are equally as important as are newer players.

I have noticed that the colors in which the letters of your username are written are the same as Atraxa's colors; is that deliberate, or merely a coincidence?
March 30, 2020 12:13 p.m.
Boza, that case, what do you believe is the best way to balance cards with Phyrexian mana?
March 30, 2020 12:10 p.m.
Boza, would increasing the mana cost of praetor's spite help to make it more balanced? What about temporal flux? Would increasing the mana cost of that card balance it?
Also, I cannot add regular mana to a card with Phyrexian mana, because the entire point of Phyrexian mana is to provide an alternative to using mana; it was never intended to break the color pie, and that is merely an unfortunate side effect. I feel that if a card's converted mana cost is sufficiently high, then cards with Phyrexian mana are acceptable.
