Getting Better at Magic by Ben Watkins
Weather you are a control player, beat-down, or combo player, your games are won or lost one inch at a time and your play ability and deck building skills advance probably less than an inch at a time.

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
Leashling Buy + Ghost Town Buy + Yet Another Aether Vortex Buy
Have all the cards in play. On your opponent's turn, tap Ghost Town Buy for mana, the return it to your hand. Use Leashling Buy to put it back on top of your library (and therefore into play). With the ability still on the stack, tap it for mana again and return it to your hand again, repeating the process. You may now funnel your infinite mana into whatever you choose.
