The color white in Magic: The Gathering is the weakest color in Commander (EDH). Mark Rosewater and Gavin Verhey, two employees of Wizards of the Coast, have acknowledged the need to improve white. However, white does have a few powerful tools that appear in Competitive Commander (cEDH). In today’s article, 10 White Cards Powerful Enough for Competitive Commander, I discuss 10 cards from MTG’s rich card pool that may improve white EDH decks. If you are not playing some of these cards, I encourage you to try them.
My latest article, Hidden Gems from Portal Three Kingdoms, is now live on TCGplayer Infinite. This week, I discuss cards found in Portal Three Kingdoms (P3K), a Magic: The Gathering set released in 1999 for Asian markets. The set had a limited print run and contained a unique keyword ability called horsemanship. There are a few and relatively unknown Commander (EDH) cards from Portal Three Kingdoms that have had zero to one printing. You can learn more about Portal Three Kingdoms, horsemanship, and playable EDH cards in the article.
Capishe Real Italian Kitchen is a fast-casual Italian restaurant with two locations in Charlotte, North Carolina. Both establishments in Dilworth and SouthPark are open daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for dine-in and takeout. Charlotte Business Journal recognized Capishe as one of Charlotte’s best new restaurants of 2019 per Yelp.
The menu for Capishe focuses on pizzas, pasta, sandwiches, and other small plates. There are multiple pizza offerings with red sauce (Rosso) and white sauce (Bianca). As for red pizzas, Ashley and I have tried the Prosciutto and San Lorenzo and enjoy them both. If there is an indecisive decision, flip a coin. Mozzone is our favorite white pizza with buffalo mozzarella, artichokes, Italian sausage, and other ingredients. Our second favorite white pizza is the Angelina, featuring truffle oil and vegetarian toppings. The 10-inch size pizza is enough food for one person.
Even though Capishe is a fast-casual style restaurant, they make their pasta in-house. The rigatoni and linguine pasta dishes offer multiple combinations of the ingredients found in the pizzas. Ashley’s favorite is the Linguine Carbonara featuring pancetta, white wine, pecorino, and spices. While Ashley and I have not tried the sandwiches, we did enjoy the Antipasto. The salad is a generous portion of mixed greens, olives, prosciutto, and cheeses.
Ordering curbside takeout is a smooth process from their website. Just select the location of choice and add food options to the cart. Once the order is processed, customers receive a pickup time. An employee greets customers and carries out orders to cars. Ashley and have done two takeout orders that were efficient and delicious. Capishe is a convenient and affordable option when craving pizza, pasta, and other Italian fares.
