Commander with Draftsim - Henzie "Toolbox" Torre

One of the best color combinations in Magic history, at least for me, has to be Jund. It has giant creatures, powerful removal, and solid value spells. This was reflected when Jund was first introduced in Alara Reborn, where and reigned in Standard. It certainly felt like a “toolbox” deck at that point. Three-color decks don’t always get their time to shine, but Streets of New Capenna...

Commander's Brew Episode 313 - Vadrik, Astral Archmage Izzet Zombies

Izzet spellslinger decks are a dime a dozen these days. Whether you're storming off with something or copying spells into oblivion, these decks are everywhere - so why not make yet another commander who cares about it? Well, WOTC thought this exact thing while coming up with the latest set for Magic: the Gathering. So we have a tired old archetype and an uninspiring commander in - which means...

Commander's Brew Episode 307 - Volo, Guide to Monsters

is absolutely the Commander from AFR that I was most excited to build, not only because of my fondness for Simic Commanders but also because of his unique way of doubling up creatures. doesn't want any of the same creature types on the board or in our yard, he really is the anti-tribal Commander so in our deck, you'll find very few overlap when it comes to creature types. So since we've got a...

Commander's Brew Episode 304: Prosper, Tome-Bound

This week I'm joined by special guest-host Mike Carrozza and we wasted no time brewing up a sweet deck, utilizing all the different ways to exile cards and use the "impulse" draw mechanic to our advantage to create massive card advantage as well as massive amounts of treasures. Since Prosper is sort of its own little engine, we are just augmenting the abilities already on this great card with...

Commander's Brew Episode 303: Oswald Fiddlebender

, aka Artifact is an exciting new card from the brand new Adventures in the Forgotten Realms DnD set. Not having had access to this effect before means there are tons of cool neat moves available to us for the first time in mono-White. Mainly, this deck wants to get a ton of value from sacrificing things like and jumping up the chain using cards like or . Soon enough your opponents are staring...

Commander's Brew Episode 301 - Carth the Lion Planeswalker Reanimator

LOVES Golgari planeswalkers, so in this deck we try to cast as many as we can and win with the overwhelming advantage, card advantage and creature advantage they give us. But there's a different sort of spin on this deck in addition to the superfriends angle. Because of Carth's ability we're sacrificing or just using up our walkers, using planeswalker reanimator spells to get those high powered...

Commander's Brew Episode 298 - Willowdusk, Essence Seer

 is the face of the 2021 Witherbloom Commander Precon deck and quite frankly looked underwhelming to me when I first saw the card. I thought, "Another lifegain commander? Big deal." and sure, there is a version of this deck where all you do is gain life, and it's a very viable strategy. But why only do half of what this Commander does? Life loss is key to our brew today and it's incredibly...

Commander's Brew Episode 296 - Osgir the Reconstructor

is one of the more popular new commanders from the C21 precons and it looks like there is a very good reason for that. Essentially a graveyard reanimator deck, is much more versatile than he may seem upfront. Take this deck, for example, we work a lot of value into this one with great cards coming out of the graveyard and even ways to double that up using things like as well. From the milling to...
