Commander's Brew Episode 237 - Don't Forget to Eat Your Vegetables!
When we prepare a meal, often the vegetables are the boring part that gets very little glory. Sometimes we even leave them out (guilty). Brewing up a deck is no different. The veggies are the draw, the ramp, the removal. But we too often default to the same cards. The plain broccoli. This Esper deck sets out to break the mold and make a meal out of the veggies! We've looked for the more...
Commander's Brew Episode 235 - Mairsil Energy!
We wanted to take in a new direction, and as we were looking for abilities he could copy we stumbled upon quite a few energy options. So, we ended up brewing a mix between an energy deck and an artifact token support sub-theme. There are lots of directions to take this with this deck as you play it, so keep an open mind to the different lines available. Will we cage up some token making creatures...
Commander's Brew Episode 233 – Warping the World
There is surely a lot of controversy over as a card and whether or not people should play it. So, for this deck, we're not going to tell anyone! On the surface, we're a Korvold deck that aims to sac permanents we've already gotten value from while getting more permanents than our opponents. Then, when they least expect it, we'll Warp the World! Even if there's an opponent who still has a decent...
Commander's Brew Episode 229 - The One Dollar Store
Hey Gang, Sean here! This deck is about getting a few pingers out first (Creatures that can deal one damage anywhere). Meanwhile, we're reducing the cost of spells (so that they cost one, get it?) and eventually stacking damage-doublers until we can end our opponents with a couple of damage sources, ideally copied by ONE ! You can check out the podcast this decklist came from over at our website!
Commander's Brew Episode 223 - Nonbasic.deck
For this deck, we asked ourselves the question: Can a deck work without any nonbasic lands? We think yes! helms this deck with lots of simple green sorceries to tutor up basic lands, so we can always get the ball rolling without difficulty. Don't forget about all the extra mana Radha makes us! If that isn't enough, we're going to animate our lands to generate even more mana. Or we can just win...
Commander's Brew Episode 221 - Niv-Mizzet Reborn
Restrictions breed creativity, and has a built-in restriction in that it asks us to use as many guild-coloured spells as possible, to maximize his trigger upon entering the battlefield. Sean decided to go even further and brew up a deck that's primarily Abzan. That's right, we're "dropping" Niv's main colours! The Abzan core of the deck is a recursion-based package with lots of value, but we...
Commander's Brew Episode 219 - Chainer, Nightmare Adept
Syr Konrad is definitely a potential Commander with a powerful ability. But what happens if we get even greedier? So, Sean came up with this deck using Chainer, Nightmare adept as the Commander. That way, we can self-mill ourselves and still have no trouble finding the Eldraine Knight! Then we can cast him and set up our winning turn! Plus, most of our early action will be filling up our yard....
Commanders Brew Episode 217 - Vigilance the Deck!
Don't you hate having a great creature that could attack one player really effectively, but you can't because that would leave you wide open for a counterattack? That's what Vigilance is for! Here's the deck we chatted about in our podcast episode 217. It's all about Vigilance! Enjoy casting monstrous creatures and giving them all vigilance. Heck, we'll even share other keywords among the team,...
