Commander Decks This Friday

Postby admin » Thu Mar 12, 2015 10:00 am

To reiterate for Ben, we're bringing a full commander deck this Friday to play with our Planechase and Archenemy cards.

Here are the rules for building commander decks, as a reminder:

1) Select a Commander card. This card must be a "Legendary" type Creature.
2) Build a deck of 99 other cards.
...2a) You may have only 1 copy in this deck of any non-basic land card. (That is, you may only have more than one copy of cards named Forest, Mountains, Plains, Island, or Swamp)
...2b) It is recommended you have 40 or so lands in the deck.
...2c) Cards with color in their casting costs or in their main box text (any mana symbols) can only be included if ALL colors shown are present in your Commander's casting costs.
3) Keep in mind, the more colors you have, the more versatile your deck can be, but also the harder to cast spells it will be
4) Keep in mind also that you want to be able to cast your commander to utilize them! Each time you must cast them, they become 2 colorless mana more to cast. Commanders with high casting costs or that require lots of mana to cast can be harder to play
5) It is possible to shuffle a commander card into a player's deck using spells, if the commander has been cast from the command zone into play--you may want to put some card search in your deck
6) Keep in mind also that player life totals start at 40--the Archenemy will probably be either 60 or 80--but it only takes 21 damage from a single Commander to kill a player!!

Anyone have a Akroma's memorial that they are willing to part with? I can trade for it or pay money.
