Commander's Brew Episode 246 - Winota, Joiner of Forces

I'll just say this to start: Winota, Joiner of Forces 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 Winota 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.

Winota seems both crazy good and underwhelming at first glance, what with being a tribal deck that actively needs things that are not of the tribe asked for. yet the ability to look cards deep for each non-human creature attacking is truly absurd. This deck can take a player out with a handful of 1/1's on the board and a key creature or enchantment that can buff the team. That being said, like so many aggro decks in EDH, this one is prone to the "kill one player, get killed by the table" mentality, so watch out for that and try to politic your way out of it if you see it coming.

Winota is a lot of fun and I'm sure we've only scratched the surface of what can be done with this potent Commander. Have fun attacking, Boros buddies!
