On Aug. 25, Wizards of the Coast is releasing a new round of Commander decks and they're a battle royale of tribal fun.
There are four new decks this time around and each one is built around a tribal theme. There's a deck full of dragons, another with vampires, one with wizards (how appropriate), and one with kitties. Well, cats. Battle-worthy cats. Okay, the felines are rather ferocious. Overall, the decks overall seem rather well built around their respective themes and should be fairly easy to upgrade after-market.
Featuring a mix of reprints and original cards -- some of which are the first time notable characters from Magic's history such as the sentient dragon engine Ramos and Lord Ith's captor, Mairsil the Pretender -- there is a lot to like about the new official EDH/Commander decks. There is a lot to see and a lot to experience.
In fact, LGS Natural 20 Games in Las Vegas teamed up with GeekNifty to give the new decks an out-of-the box whirl. Take a look at some of the highlights in the video below.
