Commander's Brew Episode 259: Mardu Citadel

This week I've been playing a lot of the Jund Citadel decks in Historic and it's been so much fun that I've been inspired to recreate some of the same neat moves in this week's Commander deck. Unlike its Historic cousin, this deck uses a lot of damage prevention and redirection as well as the paying life effects like has. So gaining life and preventing the damage in the first place is a real...

Commander's Brew Episode 258 - Elsha of the Infinite Combos

The inspiration for this deck is those Russian dolls. You know, the ones where there's a little doll inside another doll, inside another doll? You get the picture. This Jeskai deck, led by , has us putting our creatures "inside" of other creatures so that if anything happens to them, we get our original creature back! The potential to chain together a few creatures is very high, and one of the...

Commander's Brew Episode 257 - 5-Colour Secret Karrthus

Five-colour secret is a wild idea for a Commander deck and it's not for the faint of heart. If you want the full lowdown on this deck I really suggest you listen to this week's episode because there's a LOT to set up with this deck, but if you can make it happen I think you'll be very pleased. The basic moves of the deck involve getting your mana settled ( helps with that) then tutoring for a few...

Commander's Brew Episode 256: Kathril, Aspect Warper

The latest Commander precons gives us . You might expect us to try to fill up our graveyard with all the different keywords and then voltron up, right? Then you don't know us very well! We're going to mostly focus on a couple keywords. Deathtouch and Indestructibility. Sure, a couple of extra keywords might slip in there, but if we're able to attack (or sit back and defend) with deathtouching...

Commander's Brew Episode 255: Neyith of the Dire hunt

The new Jumpstart product has some very fun new commanders in it, but none are more exciting to me than . I love it when a new legendary is printed and it instantly makes a bunch of limited chaff playable in our format. Get all your fight cards out from your long boxes and sleeve em up because you're about to draw a ton of cards with and this list of giant beaters. So obviously fighting is a big...

Commander's Brew Episode 253: Akim, the Soaring Wind

might look like a lot of Jeskai Commanders we've seen over recent years, but actually this bird dino gives us a lot of leeways when building and brewing up a deck with an interesting twist, quite unlike the Jeskai brews we've seen. Should we build around flyers, go bird tribal or maybe just rely on big tokens having double strike? Either way, we go we know we are making tokens but you may be...

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...
