Commander's Brew Episode 255: Neyith of the Dire hunt

The new Jumpstart product has some very fun new commanders in it, but none are more exciting to me than . I love it when a new legendary is printed and it instantly makes a bunch of limited chaff playable in our format. Get all your fight cards out from your long boxes and sleeve em up because you're about to draw a ton of cards with and this list of giant beaters. So obviously fighting is a big...

Commander's Brew Episode 253: Akim, the Soaring Wind

might look like a lot of Jeskai Commanders we've seen over recent years, but actually this bird dino gives us a lot of leeways when building and brewing up a deck with an interesting twist, quite unlike the Jeskai brews we've seen. Should we build around flyers, go bird tribal or maybe just rely on big tokens having double strike? Either way, we go we know we are making tokens but you may be...

Commander's brew Episode 251 - The 40 Most Exciting Core Set 2021 Commander Cards

Core Set 2021 is easily one of the best sets we've seen for Commander in a while. The number of great reprints plus generally useful spells has all of us jazzed about getting these cards into our decks ASAP. Sure we didn't see a ton of multicolour Commanders in M21, but we did get a pretty sweet box topper in . and give us some interesting takes on familiar themes. The mono-coloured legends are...

Commander's Brew Episode 250 - Sharuum the Hegemon Counters

This deck started out, and even currently is, a bit of a very fun and potentially powerful durdely mess. That's not to say this is a bad deck, it's just to say that if you like a hint of chaos (not the Red EDH deck kind, just the normal kind) you'll love this deck. Also, contrary to what I say in this week's episode, this deck definitely does contain some infinite combos. Namely, the kind where...

Commander's Brew Episode 248 - Nethroi Zeroes to Heroes

Our latest in the series of Mutate Commanders that buck the trend of being a parasitic mechanic is . In this deck, Nethroi acts as a 7 mana reanimate everything in your graveyard spell because of our massive number of creatures (over 40) and the fact that most of them are 0/0s that enter the battlefield with +1/+1 counters on them. Of course, this means that Nethroi sees them in the yard as zero...

Commander's Brew Episode 246 - Winota, Joiner of Forces

I'll just say this to start: is one of the most explosive decks I've ever seen in Commander on the fun, casual side of things. Obviously there are a lot more high powered fast combo type things going on in cEDH, but brings a true overwhelming tide of free creatures to a much-maligned guild that has been getting a lot of love from WOTC over the past few sets. seems both crazy good and...

Commander's Brew Episode 244 - Haldan & Pako

This year's Commander precons are exceptionally spicy with a ton of great mechanics, most exciting of all, new partners! Now they may not have been exactly the style of partners we wanted, but a partner is a partner! If you like big Temur spells, and are THE new Commanders for you. I love it when an EDH deck seems to work against itself - attacking with a big dog but also running almost all...

The 30 Most Exciting NEW Cards from Commander 2020

This week on Commander's Brew we reviewed all the most exciting new and reprinted cards from the 2020 Commander precons. Here, for you, I've broken down 30 of the new cards that I'm most excited about getting in my greasy little palms. Sure I could basically list all the legendary creatures, and because of the returning "Partner with" mechanic there are a bunch of them, but I wanted to highlight...
