I don't want to be too self-serving, but three of the writers from the casual side of the Star City Games Talent Search have started our own site, with nothing but casual articles.
http://musevessel.wordpress.com
We started in January and have been publishing three articles a week since then: Graveborn Muse on Monday, Seedborn Muse on Wednesday and Windborn Muse on Friday. Also, we link to the articles we wrote for the SCG Talent Search - basically we were told that they liked our writing but the readership base of SCG has become almost exclusively tournament-oriented in recent years, to the point where Abe Sargent was cut. Hence, a site that deals exclusively with casual/multiplayer, including a heaping helping of EDH (especially from me).

fantastic site. Every article there was interesting and well written and something for the casual player (like myself) who is desperate for a good read that doesn't involve "best decks"

Hey guys,

Just thought I would mention I started writing articles about the format for MagicMadhouse UK.
If you'd like to have a look, do follow this link:

http://www.magicmadhouse.co.uk/articles/?p=35

Do let me know what you think and get in touch!

Just added this: http://mcgees.org/magic-mana-selector/

You plug in your general's colours and you get the full list of legal land for that deck.

I am the primary Wiki updater for the EDH/Commander Group on the WOTC Community. If you think it would be a benefit to people, you could link to the wiki information, where I built (and am Building) resources for new and old players alike.

The Group is here:
http://community.wizards.com/commander/

The Wiki is here:
http://community.wizards.com/commander/wiki/Index

I have resources like all Legendary Creatures indexed by Color and CMC. Lists of Common and Uncommon Legends. I have also indexed Commanders by Creature Types and show what Type/Color Combinations have enough creatures to make singleton tribal decks for EDH (using the 1/3d count - so 33+the General). Right now it is only Cards on MTGO. But I can probably modify it for all cards fairly simply. I'm also working on adding Staple card inforamtion, with a twist. It won't just be a list of cards that everyone plays when using the correct color, but will also include staples by function (example - what are the best Graveyard Hate cards) this way you might not include these cards in every deck of that color, but if you need to fill a specific slot, this will give you ideas on what is a staple for that function of the deck.

I don't think that anyone has mentioned commandercast.com yet, which is a really great source for a lot of smart voices. It's not just a podcast, that's for sure.

They have a ton of content, including an article that I wrote for them a few weeks ago:

edit: my bad, ctrl-f failed me

I'm just looking at the land article and it's amazing how much the prices have changed:
Tower of the Magistrate was $.49, now it's a $9 card.
Riptide Lab was only $2.
Academy Ruins for $4.
Gaea's Cradle for $40?!
Rav Shocklands for $8-$9
Rel Tower $.79
Winding Canyons was $1.

Man, I wish I knew then what I know now.

A lot of those price changes are partly caused by other constructed formats. Tower, Lab, and Ruins have become much more important in Legacy (especially Tower + Lab because of Stoneblade decks and Snapcaster Mage). Gaea's Cradle is a key card in GW Maverick. Modern pushed up the prices of shocklands (and Academy Ruins is strong in modern too).

Hopefully they'll reprint the shocks though.
