Another other key component of the deck is the voting mechanic. Riley Knight started playing Magic in 2012. The top ten spots look the same, except for Edgar Markov and Feather the Redeemed sparring for fifth and sixth. With Zacama as your commander, however, you always have access to your top-end payoff card–so why play any others? Yarok the Desecrated rises past Kess, Dissident Mage, and Gishath, Sun’s Avatar and Meren of Clan Nel Toth fight for the undercard spots. He is a co-host of the Commander Time! Lord Windgrace is in fifth place and firmly stays in that area. Atraxa, Praetors’ Voice pulls ahead of Teysa Karlov. Shall we take a look at what happened with the popular commanders that year? As with most Esper decks, there’s a sizable suite of defensive spells–both enchantments like Ghostly Prison as well as sweepers and point removal. That’s not to say you can’t, should you choose to pick one of these lists up–I’m just trying to be upfront that they’re not, by any means, optimally-built. Why risk never drawing the ’Hoof when you can just guarantee having your hard-hitting heavyweight at the ready 100% of the time? In the first month, Muldrotha, the Gravetide takes a strong lead and mostly holds on to it throughout the year. Nate is a game developer, programmer, and writer from San Francisco. Lord Windgrace claws fourth place away from Edgar Markov and doesn’t give it back. Atraxa, Praetors’ Voice takes third place away from Edgar Markov and doesn’t let go, as Lord Windgrace starts to eye Edgar’s new spot. Jodah hangs on at #7 for now, but he starts to fall behind and ultimately does not recover, dropping out of the top #15 in a few months. On a theoretical level, this deck can beat anything. You really are. ... Oloro, Ageless Ascetic (Commander) Oloro, Ageless Ascetic. Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer drops out of the top 15 and does not return.. March As far as I've seen, Oloro did nothing to slow Geist/Clique down. That one was easy.). Some new faces jump into the top 15, with Core 2019‘s Arcades, the Strategist jumping in at #8 and Commander 2018‘s Yuriko, the Tiger’s Shadow and Aminatou, the Fateshifter at #11 and at #12, respectively. Nate can be found @commandtime and/or @misterplorg, and as a frequent guest streamer at MTG Lexicon. I don’t like kingmaking, and the card choices in this deck reflect that–I’m much more interested in just fanning the flames of dissent between players, and generally just stirring up conflict. In a last-minute surprise, Golos, Tireless Pilgrim jumps from seventh to third, finally knocking Teysa Karlov out of the top three. Riley's favorite formats are Modern and Cube, and he likes to play most of his Magic in his opponents' end steps. Between the monarchy and Oloro’s life buffer, this deck pulls together a lot of resources that allow you to get away with a gameplan that is, frankly, nowhere near as powerful as what others will doubtless be doing. For set representation, Muldrotha is joined in the top 15 by other Dominaria pals Jodah, Archmage Eternal at #6 and Tatyova, Benthic Druid #11. Teysa Karlov takes first place for a few months, knocking Muldrotha the Gravetide off of a 2019 shutout. What do you think? $12.37. Taking any suggestions on making a more cohesive and competitive deck for … $17.99. 4.50 TIX. Today, I’m back with the other two: an Oloro deck that substitutes boring stuff like winning a game of Magic with fun stuff like messing with everyone else’s business and setting people against each other, and a Zacama deck that is one of the most straightforward Commander decks in existence. The top six stay the same while Yuriko, the Tiger’s Shadow and Niv-Mizzet, Parun push past Jodah, Archmage Eternal for seventh and eighth place, respectively. Others, such as Animar, Soul of Elements, Aminatou, the Fateshifter, and Arcades the Strategist have strong starts but faded behind as new commanders pushed them out. In this case, the big spreadsheet is the total of number of decks uploaded during 2019 to the various deckbuilding sites we partner with.
