Commander's Brew Episode 247 - Vadrok, Apex of Thunder
Ikoria gave us a cycle of legendary creatures with a Mutate ability on them, and we set out to see if we could still use that to our advantage, without adding all the eligible Mutate cards to the deck. Because, frankly, a lot of the Mutate cards aren't that flashy in a game of Commander. We took the Jeskai legendary, , and aim to Mutate it onto some sort of small (likely artifact) creature. For...
Commander's Brew Episode 245 - Ayli & Lurrus
You've no doubt heard about all sorts of formats getting on the Companion train, and Commander's Brew is not above it! In fact, we put together a deck using one of the Companions that seemed tougher to brew around - . This deck obviously has to be full of permanents of CMC 2 or less, which plays quite nicely into an aristocrats theme, led by ! And we've got plenty of ways of recurring if they...
Commander's Brew Episode 242 - Gruul Lands
How do you like your steak done? If you like medium beef, this is the decklist for you! It's a Gruul deck that wants to ramp the hard way led by Mina and Denn as the Commander. We're all about playing two or more lands per turn. To make sure we never run out of gas, we're also planning on drawing a few cards per turn when creatures come into play to keep the engine running. And if that weren't...
Commander's Brew Episode 239 - Jund Zombies
There's no shortage of zombie decks out there, but I think a Jund zombie deck is on the rarer side. How did we come up with this one? Fast zombies! All those other Commander decks are filled with those regular old slow zombies, but this deck is all about the fast ones. They probably scream instead of moan also. Most of our zombies come from non-creature cards that generate zombie tokens, and the...
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!
