How to Build a Commander Deck

 

  1. Thanks

    4. @tappedout – 00:53:20, 01:02:15
  3. Main Topic – Building a Commander Deck
    1. Choosing a Commander
      1. Find something that speaks to you
      2. Edhrec is a great resource for this
    2. Have a plan!
      1. Be open minded to your plan changing during the deck building process
      2. The Gitrog Monster
      3. Mizzix of the Izmagnus
      4. Sen Triplets (this is Ryan going overboard on the plan)
    3. Our deck building processes
      1. Edhrec
      2. Piles of cards vs Ryan’s cache
    4. Commander-centricity
      1. It’s a sliding scale, Goodstuff (Oloro, Ageless Ascetic / Cromat) all the way to Commander Dependant (Skithiryx)
      2. It’s OK to have a card that works well with ONLY your commander, because you always have your commander as an “8th card” in your hand
    5. Mana base
      1. Differences with number of colors and average cmc of your deck
      2. How many utility lands can you afford to run?
      3. CJ talk about cheating on land
      4. Command Zone videos
        1. Commandzone video 1
        2. Commandzone video 2
      5. Tolarian Community College Videos:

        2. TCC3
        3. TCC4
        4. TCC5
    6. Win conditions
      1. These should complement your deck’s PLAN
      2. Go wide strategy with Craterhoof Behemoth
      3. Combo wins
      4. Voltron
