Wizards of the Coast released a separate set of commander cardsInnistrad: Midnight HuntexpansionMagic: GatheringIn this way, we provide several unique tools for commanders.
This list will focus onInnistrad: Midnight HuntThe series has fantastic support for already established prototypes as well as exciting new combinations.
many imprisoned inInnistrad: Midnight HuntDesigned for Commander and aimed solely at the multiplayer crowd, it revives this old format. Take a look at all the top 15 commander cards here.
Lunar Silver Key
This is the card you want to use in your Krak-Clan Ironworks Commander deck. Moonlight Key can quickly get this artifact or Phyrexian Altar which is used in many egg builds.
It basically has a few combo pieces, but only works as a simple ramp piece to get a Sun Ring or Mana Vault, and is expensive enough to justify its place in the deck.
Mentors are always popular with the EDH crowd and this one is colorless which is a great benefit.
It's a counterspell on a stick that protects your non-creature spells when flipped.
This can be a great addition to Kraum as Ludevica's Opus deck can effectively utilize the opposite of Malevolent Recluse. Another possibility is Emry, Lurker of the Loch, who shreds him and banishes him from the graveyard at the cost of distraction.
You can use these interactions to protect your wallet and get unexpected benefits at relatively little cost.
Commanders receive white artifacts and spells again. Most importantly, it's a decent creature with a sparkle.
He will mainly be used on Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, and Winota, Joiner of Forces, can use his ability to cast Cathar Commando since he is also human.
You can make heavy use of his lightning abilities against spells like Underworld Breach that require quick reflexes.
the king of the forgotten
There's so much good about this creature that it's hard to believe it's not legendary. Regardless, the best ability is probably ramp, which allows you to trade life for mana. Of course, you can only use it to cast spells from your graveyard, but it works wonders in some decks.
You can also fill your graveyard with creatures. You can use it to cast Karador, the Spirit Chief for about three mana, then use it to cast all consecrated creatures back onto the battlefield.
Liberator of the Outlands
Like Corrupting Caterpillar, this is a very good artifact and charm remover with slightly higher stats, but also a higher mana cost.
However, the side of the Night Card is really interesting because you can destroy your opponent's artifacts and spells multiple times while attacking. Doing so removes all of their manastones and basically leaves them with no extra ramps to play.
You can use it in the Bard Wanderer's Yisan deck, from where you can quickly retrieve it if needed.
Commanders have found a great new combo for their Graveyard decks with Old Fingers:
- Use the Old Stickfingers ability to place Razaketh, Corrupt Blood, and Witherbloom Apprentice in your graveyard
- Cast Reanimate to restore Razaketh, the Defiler
- Sacrifice an old stick to win life//death
- Lanzar Life side i autobus Lion's Eye Diamond
- Lion's Eye cracked diamond for three green mana
- Get Chatterstorm and run it with five Squirrel Tokens
- Spend two tokens to receive a Lotus Petal and a Dark Rite
- Spend two or more tokens to get Unearth and Chain of Smog
- Use Unearth to bring in Witherbloom's apprentice
- Shoots chains of smoke targeting itself.
Rinse and repeat the last step until deadly damage is done.
This little spell can do amazing things to the all-forming Commander Orvar. You can quickly create multiple creature tokens you control and reuse them on your next turn.
It can also be heavily used on mutant creatures such as Lore Drakkis and Vadrok, Apex of Thunder, resetting their mutation stacks and re-looping the activated ability.
Finally, it bounces off the blackmailer in the dock to create more treasure tokens if needed.
spin the earth
It's a very strange Grave Hate card, but it's certainly very effective. It also has flashbacks, making it a repeating effect that works well against decks that use Underground Breach.
It shuffles the opponent's deck, which can be used very well against the Vampire Tutor. When the card they want remains on top of their library, you let them shuffle it back into Unknown.
Turn the Earth is a great add-on to Endurance, allowing you to have some tools of destruction up your sleeve.
Saryth, the Serpent's Fang
Saryth would be a good match for the Walking Ballista. You can give it a Death Touch and use it to kill the biggest threat on board, and reset it to make it immune to removal spells.
It can also be used to reset one of your realms, such as Gaia's Cradle. You can then use Shalai, the Voice of Abundance, to put all the extra mana into a creature that will empower you and attack you with immense power.
When you're looking for a way to discard all your cards and fill your graveyard, Moonveil Regent will do the trick.
It can activate all your cards with madness or just a quick push to Underworld Breach. In any case, the Moonveil Regent will serve you better than just the engine.
He has a solid body, and when he dies, he can pick up another creature along the way.
Adeline, brilliant Katri
Even if you can't get Adeline to work as a Commander on her own, you can always add her to your Winota, Link of Force deck and watch her take the battlefield.
The latter ability is especially useful in multiplayer games. The more opponents you have, the more chips you can produce. If it is a 4-man commander, you get three tokens and Adelina's strength is four.
If your creature survives, its damage increases each round!
Lear, Apprentice of the Drowned
We have arguably one of the best Commander cards here, which uses spells like Tide that doubles all your blue mana, and Time Spiral that resets your lands and restores your speed.
Spell protection is also a huge plus, so expect to see many Commander decks paired with Lier this season. Note that this also affects your opponent's spells, which are also uncountable.
This is another Vampiric Tutor distraction spell that can be shuffled onto the top card of your opponent's library.
Being able to throw one of these is just a wonderful bonus, but you really want to mess up his combos and other plays.
It can also be replicated multiple times with the Scepter of Isochrone, making it almost impossible for an opponent to put anything important on top of their library.
Slogurk, super sticky
Slogurk has a lot of text, which makes it a unique commander card. But in this niche, you can do some cool tricks.
Consider pairing it with the Hermit Druid, who can grind up huge amounts of earth and turn a Slogurk into a real beast.
You can then use Slogurk to return the Cave of Souls back to your hand, use it and make your Oracle Thassy unbeatable.
slaughter of meat hooks
Finally, a very interesting disenchantment that also deals damage to the opponent.
You can make it work on any deck full of chips, sacrifice them all, and watch all your opponents die at once.
It's comparable to Blood Artist, but you don't need the extra sacrifice mechanic in this case. It is already included in The Meathook Massacre.
