Trostani Discordant

I’m a Selesnyan mage at heart. Tokens, small creatures, and big swings are in my DNA, and I’ve had some sort of token deck in EDH for as long as I can remember. A few years ago I built Trostani, Selesnya’s Voice and had some fun with it, but It wasn’t well-tuned and was a more casual deck. I eventually decided to rework it when the Guilds of Ravnica set came out, and that led me to decide I had the wrong Commander to begin with.

Korvold, Fae-Cursed King

It’s spoiler season for Throne of Eldraine, and this time around there is a twist; the spoilers kicked off with a set of Brawl decks, with specially-made commanders! Although the commanders were specially designed for Brawl, they have plenty of Commander-format potential. Today, I’m going to talk about some Commander-style ways to use Korvold, Fae-Cursed King!

Ghired, Conclave Exile

Something you’ll learn about me as a player is that I’m quite a Selesnyan mage. I love tokens and token strategies, and while I don’t only own green and white decks, my strategies often look the same. My favorite mechanic is populate, and I’ve longed to build a Naya tokens deck but haven’t had the right Commander to do so. Now that Commander 2019 is here, I finally have a Naya Commander who populates!

Bruse & Ikra

One of the first decks I ever built was Doran, the Siege Tower. Toughness matters and life gain were ingrained into its strategy and it was a blast to play. When four-color Commanders were dropped on us back in 2016, Doran had an identity crisis. Why stick to Abzan when you could introduce red? Thus, “Bruse and Ikra‘s Tough Love Shack” was born.

Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper

A few weeks ago, Reddit user /u/Exkzol told me about a beautiful combo of cards. The combo, which I explain fully in this article, is to cast Mirrorweave targeting Contested War Zone which has been made into a creature. When you hit your opponent(s) with your creature-land, you get to take all their creatures! When I was done writing the article, I just couldn’t stop thinking about that sweet combo, so I got to work building a deck around it.

Morophon, the Boundless

Have you ever had a tribe that just felt like it was missing something? Maybe you’ve built Minotaurs or Squirrels and just feel that they’re only jank and not worth the effort. Or maybe you’ve built a five color Changeling deck and realized that a tribe that is “all tribes” isn’t quite what you wanted. Well, thanks to Modern Horizons, Morophon, the Boundless is here to fix all your tribal woes.
