Budget Building: Episode 5 - RG Beats by Kevin Weber
A deck with less than $5 worth of rares manages to eke out an 8-2 record. A good deck to consider if you're on a shoe-string budget.

Budget EDH 5 - Low Drop Creatures by Kevin Weber
Finding expensive spells for EDH is easy. It's not hard to pack 7-drop creatures that pack a big punch. Heck, just about any Mythic Rare that costs more than five mana will do. But good EDH decks don't just pack a whole bunch of high-cost creatures - otherwise they'll get blown over by someone running a cheap aggressive general like Doran.

Combo of the Day
Rhystic Deluge Buy + Cowardice Buy
Uhm... easy. Cowardice, then with just 1 mana, it goes back to their hand. Now, this makes Epic Struggle weenies cry. And, should they have an assload of creatures out, then this makes them go away.
