Yes. All the win to Wizards and gender/ethnic representation.
Plus, as markrosewater has mentioned before, Sarkhan (and Tarkir altogether) is supposed to look Mongolian. Whoever read anything related to Marco Polo’s travels and Gengis Khan IRL gets really thrilled by that. Still, everything I saw from Tarkir until now has been pretty ethnic-varied also, which is just brilliant. Kudos to the whole team!
People act as if this diversity is something new at WoTC. As far back as I can remember (revised edition), I remember plenty of PoC and women being represented positively. Sure, there has been more diversity as of late and that’s great but WoTC has done it right for much longer than just the past few blocks.
Commander’s becoming a popular format. I doubt anybody reads my blog enough to consider me a Magic guru but I’ve reached 100 followers. Instead of a giveaway, I might as well try to impart some wisdom.
Like all variants of Magic, Commander has its own metagame and a way to build your deck. This is not an effort of optimisation, just some basic things to keep in mind when making your deck.
Let’s get down to business.
Great article on EDH . Highly recommend this read if you are thinking of getting into commander.
