Commander’s Brew Episode 232 – Meren & the Discarding 4 Drops
No, this is not the latest indie band to hit the cool music scene of your city, its the latest episode of THE BREW! I've been looking for an unorthodox Meren deck for a long time and thanks to the help of our amazing Patrons in our Discord we have found one! This is not your grandfather's Meren deck! It's mine. I already told you that. This deck revolves around and it's unique ability,...
Bant Spirits: The Power of CoCo
When Pioneer was first announced, I was super excited with the opportunity to play a format that many dubbed to be "Standard All-Stars". Unfortunately, picking a deck to play meant dancing around WOTC's initial ban philosophy (especially if, like me, you didn't already have a significant collection of Pioneer legal cards). Thankfully, this decision to pick a fair, unbannable deck lead me to...
Chaos Will Consume All
I hope you’re ready for another absurd brew from yours truly. is a commander deck often looked to for sweet value or jamming five colour good stuff. Today let’s look at something on the more absurd side of design and take advantage of our commander to manipulate the board state in some of the most confusing ways (while also on a mostly tight budget).

Two Janky Sort-Of Tribal Decks for Theros Beyond Death
Hey guys. Today, I’m going to be talking about a satyr tribal deck and a zombie tribal deck that barely have enough type matters cards to be considered tribal. WARNING: If you came here looking for Tier 1 decks, this is the wrong place. This is more of a Red Green Monsters deck with a Satyrs sub-theme. is an interesting card. It is a great lord with no support. Luckily a 2/2 haste for 2 is okay...
Commander’s Brew Ep 230 – Mana Rock Tribal
I love a deck that can attack at multiple angles. I also love a deck that doesn't sound like it could possibly be a real deck. This Mana Rock Tribal deck does both of those things and it's a blast to play on top of it. Whether you're animating your mana producing artifacts to actually kill your opponents in combat or you're utilizing all that colourless mana to cast a massive, game-ending X...
Commander’s Brew Episode 229 – The One Dollar Store
Hey Gang, Sean here! This deck is about getting a few pingers out first (Creatures that can deal one damage anywhere). Meanwhile, we're reducing the cost of spells (so that they cost one, get it?) and eventually stacking damage-doublers until we can end our opponents with a couple of damage sources, ideally copied by ONE ! You can check out the podcast this decklist came from over at our website!
