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, Haldan and Pako 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 non-creature spells with big splashy effects. This kind of strategy always presents a challenging deckbuilding puzzle that often results in a powerful deck.
The idea with this version of H&P is to control and predict the top card of your opponents' decks and when you exile a bunch of sweet spells, cast em all with your extras land drops you also got from Pako's ability. It all synergizes and really comes together as a big ramp, big spell, and big fun deck that will create some very swingy games. Just be sure to protect Pako so he can keep the stream of cards coming!
