Building a Commander deck from scratch is no mean feat, but only a few years ago it was even harder.

Commander is magic’s dark alleyway.  It can be filled with the dangerous and unexpected or it is the long boring way to get to the same place.  There is no reason to let your games become boring.  You can always be unexpected and dangerous.  In a game of no-holds-barred, multifaceted politics, be the maniacal dictator.
