Partner Commanders We Wish We Had

How do you feel about the partner mechanic coming back? Partner was a great mechanic introduced a couple years ago in the Commander preconstructed decks. It allowed us to mix and match any two Legendaries with the "Partner" keyword in our command zone to combine abilities and give our deck the exact colour identity we want. And with Battlebond on the horizon, we're finally getting partners back....

Brewing For Speed vs. Power

What do you prioritize in your Commander decks? There are a ton of dials to consider when brewing up a deck. After all, we have almost 20k cards to choose from. Yes, many of them are basically unplayable in our format, but I'm sure there's a good 8k worth considering. That's a lot of options that allow us to come down to personal taste. One of the biggest factors to consider when building a deck...

Playing Politics in Brawl

How good are you at your multiplayer politics? The new Brawl format will really put that to the test! Brawl, as a multiplayer format, feels very much like multiplayer Commander with a few differences. We start with thirty life instead of forty, and we get to use Planeswalkers as our Commanders. However, the biggest difference is that the card pool is limited to only Standard-legal cards. That...

The most underrated ability in Commander?

Are you not the biggest fan of the politics in a Commander game? Do you like attacking? Then you'll want to take advantage of what is possibly the most underrated ability in Commander... Vigilance! Sure, there are players out there who's decks aim to combo out by turn three or four, and attacking anyone is the farthest thing from their main strategy, but most Commander decks, I'll wager, still...

I'll spotlight some of my favourite pieces of equipment that help beef up a commander that wants to attack. Could be Voltron by nature, or just a commander with a nice combat ability.

Sideboarding From Within

Have you ever wished you could sideboard in Commander? Unless there's a special version happening, we're playing one game matches with no chance to sideboard. I can't count how many times I've been in the middle of a game and wished I had some kind of answer for the situation. But sometimes our answers don't line up with what's happening on the battlefield, so what do we do then? That's why I...
