Now, I know I’ve said this a whole bunch, but I just love the Duel Decks.  They’re probably my favorite Magic product out there.  I just love the flavor of them and they’re often a great way to get your hands on some EDH staples.  Between those factors, Duel Decks and I are a pretty great pair.
That said, I’ve already heard a lot of negativity about this upcoming one, “Heroes vs Monsters”.  We haven’t even seen the decklists yet!  Hell, we haven’t even seen the foils yet.  How can you pass judgement so soon?  
Alright, I get it.  The name is so incredibly vague that it seems like Wizard’s didn’t put very much thought into this one did they?  ”Hero” and “Monster”…those could be just about any cards in Magic!  Some cards could be considered both even!  
But what’s different between the Duel Decks of today and those such as Goblins vs Elves and Divine vs Demonic?  Now the second Duel Deck of the year is centered around the upcoming set upcoming set, specifically the factions involved.  (This was stated awhile ago, I’m too lazy to dig up the article myself but you can go search Wizard’s site for it!).
So that means “Heroes vs Monsters” vague as it may sound, may be more specific than we think.  Maybe when we get more information on Theros we can make some better guesses as to what this Duel Deck will be like.
Here’s the details on Heroes vs Monsters that we have so far:
Duel Decks: Heroes vs Monsters will contain six preview cards from this fall’s Magic set Theros, making them your very first chance to play with the set’s new cards!
Deck Design and Deck Development: Chris Millar, Kelly Digges and Sam Stoddard Twitter Hashtag: #MTGHVMLanguages Available: English, Japanese Release Date: September 6, 2013 MSRP: $19.99

My best friend sent me this today.  I think it would be a good move for Wizards.

Wizard’s Harlem Shake…

not sure if horrid or great.

mr-gus-the-mighty said: hi, can you please help me make a commander deck with ulasht as the general? the budget is no problem

I apologize in advance if anyone is bored by what I have to say on this matter because I know I say “tokens!” a lot.  But this is how I built my Ulasht.  And it works because tokens are the easiest and most efficient way to get Ulasht nice and big.

Get Tokens

Verdant Force

Rakka Mar

Druidic Satchel (also ramps!)

Hornet Queen

Avenger of Zendikar

Wort, the Raidmother (gives Ulasht 2 +1/+1 counters!)

Huntmaster of the Fells

Garruk (any but Relentless)

Make More Tokens

Chancellor of the Forge

Parallel Evolution

Doubling Season

Parallel Lives

Mycoloth

Win Cons:

Mob Justice

Dragon Broodmother (have those babies devour a bunch and fly in for damage!)(gives Ulasht 2 +1/+1 counters!)

Triumph of the Hordes

Then don’t forget all your utility.

Other thoughts:

Kessig Wolf Run that Ulasht.

If you see a good creature in your colors that may not be tokeny, try it out.  Things like Burning Tree Emissary and Bloodbraid Elf are just good creatures to have that may not impede but even help cast some other things.

Some other cool things to do are to pump your creatures up with things like Akroma’s Memorial and Eldrazi Monument to swing in for big damage.

Freshmeat would also be super nice for board wipes.
