Commander Focus — Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire

Vaevictis, New and Improved Behold, Vaevictus Asmadi, the Dire! A new upgrade to an old classic. The previous version of this Elder Dragon had firebreathing, as well as treebreathing and swampbreathing. While this ability might be fascinating to reptilian nutritionists, it’s a bit mediocre compared to what modern commanders can do. The upgraded version gets […]

The Knowledge Pool — Kresh the Bloodbraided

Hi everyone! Welcome back to The Knowledge Pool! Most commanders have an obvious theme and encourage us to play specific cards. This is apparent when we consider the decks I’ve presented so far. Mayael wants us to play with big creatures, Trostani wants us to make tokens, and Kydele wants to untap. I personally love […]

General Medicine — Savra’s Supreme Sacrifice Engine

Welcome back friends to another edition of General Medicine! Today we’re taking a look at a two-color deck very much built around the commander championing it, Peter’s brew of Savra, Queen of the Golgari! But before we get into the list and a preliminary diagnosis, I want to expand upon the color pairing in general. […]

Weird Harvest — Control Denied

It’s that time again! Welcome back to Weird Harvest, where misfit commanders wield forgotten spells to create head scratching situations. This week we tackle a reader request from Darrenn E Canton! He asked if we could break Ertai, the Corrupted. We’re going to shatter this jank commander or die trying. Ertai: Just Add Oil This […]

Commander Focus — Wasitora, Nekoru Queen

Some people like cats. Some people like dogs. Some people like both cats and dogs, so there’s a bit of overlap on that Venn diagram. But what, you presumably ask, about the people who like both cats and dragons? Wasitora, Nekoru Queen is a hard-working mother who just wants to feed her litter of cute […]
