EDHREC – Why We Think It’s Worth the Money
EDHREC is one of the most valuable resources the EDH community has, and we often get asked why we think it’s worth the money. As the creators of EDHREC, we’re happy to take this opportunity to tell you about our website! Let’s dive right in…
At EDHREC, we collect and analyze data from popular Magic: The Gathering decklists on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr, and Twitch to build a searchable database that organizes decklists according to different criteria. We aim to make this data more manageable for players to understand when building decks. We also aggregate sets of decklists posted by an individual player at pre-selected time intervals to measure how their performance may vary over time. In short, we want people to have fun with their games.
EDHREC is an organization designed to facilitate the evaluation of decks and building strategies in EDH. Some people may believe that it isn’t worth paying money for, but we would disagree. If you take the oathbreaker three example, they have a salt score that has risen from 1 to 3 in one week!
To explain why EDHREC is worth the money, let’s go over what it does. First of all, EDHREC will help get you away from only playing net decks by letting you figure out if there is a decklist better suited for your playstyle. Secondly, it will help build strategies when you can’t figure out what you should do at each step in the game.
We were introduced to EDHREC through our commander decks and had never heard of it before. Initially, I was hesitant about how we could track what type of cards people enjoy with this website. The EDHREC website contains card statistics, set breakdowns, general user reviews, and even tiers for each commander! With so much information on EDHREC, we thought it was worth paying for an account because all these reviews from other users allow you to discover new cards you may want in your own deck. It has made us better players by not only learning about new cards but also good deck strategies.
The synergy rating of Atraxa
Atraxa has a decent synergy score. According to EDHREC, she is coupled with Deathrite Shaman, Elspeth Tirel, Magister Sphinx, and Oona Ethereal Champion. This generates an index of 25%. When you compare that to Tasigur (96%), Jace Thoughtseize (92%), Nissa Nature’s Artisan (87%), or Arashin Foremost (86%), it becomes apparent why he is so popular. Most people registered on EDHREC list him as one of their commanders, with 83% listing him as one of their top ten choices. The numbers are even more staggering when you consider the game’s most expensive cards: Mikaeus Stone-Tender ($10), Nicol Bolas Planeswalker ($15), Emeria Angel ($18), and Kiki-Jiki Mirror Breaker ($25). These three sets comprise $53 worth of value, while Atraxa would only cost $35 to fill out a deck at this level.
PROS And CONS
EDHREC is an online website that rates and ranks Magic: The Gathering (MTG) cards for multiplayer play. Their rating system uses color identity, which has to do with its mechanics, power level, and mana cost. This helps when someone is unsure which cards to add to their deck or what certain cards can do for them during a match. For example, if you are building a team of Vampires, you can quickly identify cards that share these traits using EDHREC; this will help narrow down your search, so you know exactly what card suits your needs. This site also has pictures of all the cards they mention, so players don’t have to look them up separately to see what they are looking at.
