Commander's brew Episode 251 - The 40 Most Exciting Core Set 2021 Commander Cards

Core Set 2021 is easily one of the best sets we've seen for Commander in a while. The number of great reprints plus generally useful spells has all of us jazzed about getting these cards into our decks ASAP. Sure we didn't see a ton of multicolour Commanders in M21, but we did get a pretty sweet box topper in . and give us some interesting takes on familiar themes. The mono-coloured legends are...

Commander's Brew Episode 250 - Sharuum the Hegemon Counters

This deck started out, and even currently is, a bit of a very fun and potentially powerful durdely mess. That's not to say this is a bad deck, it's just to say that if you like a hint of chaos (not the Red EDH deck kind, just the normal kind) you'll love this deck. Also, contrary to what I say in this week's episode, this deck definitely does contain some infinite combos. Namely, the kind where...

Commander's Brew Episode 249 - Kalamax's Eleven

The best part of any heist movie is when they put the team together. For this deck,  is the Danny Ocean of the deck and the goal is to assemble a team of Eleven creatures, that together, will take care of the whole table. We've got ways of making sure the creatures stay in the library also, so we can them out all at once. copying instants really pushes our development into high gear, and with...

Commander's Brew Episode 248 - Nethroi Zeroes to Heroes

Our latest in the series of Mutate Commanders that buck the trend of being a parasitic mechanic is . In this deck, Nethroi acts as a 7 mana reanimate everything in your graveyard spell because of our massive number of creatures (over 40) and the fact that most of them are 0/0s that enter the battlefield with +1/+1 counters on them. Of course, this means that Nethroi sees them in the yard as zero...

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 246 - Winota, Joiner of Forces

I'll just say this to start: is one of the most explosive decks I've ever seen in Commander on the fun, casual side of things. Obviously there are a lot more high powered fast combo type things going on in cEDH, but brings a true overwhelming tide of free creatures to a much-maligned guild that has been getting a lot of love from WOTC over the past few sets. seems both crazy good and...

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 244 - Haldan & Pako

This year's Commander precons are exceptionally spicy with a ton of great mechanics, most exciting of all, new partners! Now they may not have been exactly the style of partners we wanted, but a partner is a partner! If you like big Temur spells, and are THE new Commanders for you. I love it when an EDH deck seems to work against itself - attacking with a big dog but also running almost all...
