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...
The Black Rose and the Queen
Hello there and welcome to another article from Command Beacon. Today we're taking a look at the Conspiracy sets for our Commanders, in this case, both versions of Marchesa. A subtle change to her colour scheme upon taking the crown and substantially different abilities for both cards. I hope you enjoy the differences between the two. Marchesa, the Black Rose This deck list of is actually by one...
Paying Attention to the Curve
One of the most common mistakes in deck building is the mana curve itself. It’s common to see an over-reliance on cards that cost three or more despite the deck running insufficient ramp or lands (34 or less) or too many cards at one converted mana cost. Let’s take a look at a decklist that isn’t particularly high in power level but still stays very conscious of its mana curve with a heavy...
Commander's Brew Episode 238 - Spy Kit: The Deck
This week we brewed around a super unique card, . It gives anything it's attached to the names of every other non-legendary creature in Magic. Ever since I first saw this card in Conspiracy 2, I've had it on my mind for Commander. But how best to use it? Don't bother with EDHRec, we've got the most interesting and effective brew right here!

The Building Blocks
As we all rest at home and keep ourselves and the community around us safe, many of us will find the itch to interact with Magic in some way. This could be through Arena, MTGO or other digital programs that allow us to play the game. My personal favourite way to stay connected to Magic in times where I can’t play the game is brewing. Being able to create various different lists quickly is...
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 236 - Karador Feeds the Pack
This week's deck is an Abzan deck built to take advantage of the wolf-making enchantment . We want to sac our big creatures to create a board full of wolves and maybe even get a few Garruk activations in for good measure. A super fun graveyard/token build that can win a few different ways, you'll have a blast playing with this medium-powered version of , which will probably be a nice change for...
