    Hopefully we see some new legendaries in these decks. I'm always looking for more ways to extend my Unstable Cube or UN-COMMANDER decks.

    They say they have no chosen plan for future Brawl decks, they are using Eldraine's one as a experiment. Why do you think they will already give us new ones in Theros?


    That’s what I said

    We see no evidence what so ever they will continue besides it’s the first time


    What is the big deal about speculating? You act like this is the most preposterous speculation thread you have ever seen.

    They've made an initial set for Throne of Eldraine, and they're seemingly popular so far. They obviously want to make this format a thing, as they keep pushing to improve it and make it more appealing. It was said to have "died" by a bunch of people awhile back, and truly did not die.

    If I had to guess, they're going to continue making decks, judging by the way they're trying to introduce new cards and themed decks into the format.

    Additionally, if there is anyone who probably wants this format to stick around most, it's Commander players, which happen to be a large portion of the playerbase. The introduction of new and powerful cards draws them in.

    So before everyone dies on their hill and keeps saying that the format won't return, remember, this is a speculative thread.

    I'm simply saying that it appears that the decks have a lot going for them, and if Wizards continues to make them, which with the way they talk about them it sure does seem that way, I wonder what other deck themes we could potentially see in the sets we have planned for the future.


    True.

    And I do like your speculation with the decks as if they did them again in theros

    Ikoria which is the kaiju (Godzilla) focused set we should definatly see brawl decks again


    By the way...game knights better not be doing brawl only games because of these new decks I would rather see them using them As if you change them to regular edh (adding 40 more cards and replacing the stinky ones with better ones)


    I do agree the timing is a little fast for them to come out with new ones for Theros

  • posted a message on Not a spoiler but confirms that another errata wave is coming
    My biggest thing with the errata updates is that they should actively seek to reprint old cards that are used often or at least see some play that received the new errata. People always love reprints, and this cycle in the "fixed" versions.

    This is going straight into my Yidris Graveyard/Wheels deck. Perfect because it is Modal and I don't have to worry about ripping it as a wasted counterspell if I play it for free by accident with some of the shenanigans in the deck. This is a really solid card; your opponents will generally have cards in their graveyard as the game goes on.

  • posted a message on [ELD] Feasting Troll King— Piotr 'kanister' Głogowski preview
    The one downside I see to this card is that it probably wants to be played in a G/x deck, and that GGGG in the mana cost is really cumbersome. Obviously you can get around it through reanimation, but it would still be nice to cast it from the hand to get those food tokens.

  • posted a message on [ELD] Weaselback Redcap
    Normally, I would just call it a decent one drop common, but the fact it's riding such a cute weasel is really drawing me to this card. Might have to brew a Mono Red list now just so I can play this guy.

    If that is ultimately our Big Bad Wolf..kinda disappointed.


    Yeah I was really hoping for a Red/Green legend.

    They could try tribal with a twist: This time, each deck focuses on two complimentary tribes, with face cards that care about both tribes equally and one additional legend for each tribe.

    For example, I recently posted an idea for a BR Succubus Queen that cares about both Demons and Vampires, the idea being that succubi could qualify as both. She could thus be the face card for a BR Demons + Vampires deck, with a BR Demon and a BR Vampire being the other two new legends. Of course Wizards won't likely touch succubi as a concept, but I hope the example gets my point across.

    This could be an excellent outlet for a BGU Naga/Snake deck (in which case the face would probably be a Naga Snake duo, or a Naga who creates/tutors a legendary Snake or somesuch). I could see a Snake Ninja from Kamigawa and a Zombie Naga pharaoh from Amonkhet as the secondary legends.

    In addition to races, there are also classes to consider. Race + Class is the easiest, as most humanoid creatures have both a race and a class. Race + Race is doable as in the Demon Vampire example above, but tends to be easier with races that double as classes (Demon, Vampire, Zombie, etc.). Class + Class is the trickiest as few creatures have a class but no race, thus the face legend would likely have three creature types.

    Noncreature subtypes could be fun to explore as well.

    WUBRG Gates
    Finally, a deck in which to include all those Gates matter cards. Multicolor Matters would be the second major theme, befitting a Ravnica deck. Alternatively, this deck primarily cares about basic land types, while the Gates would be a secondary theme.

    RW Equipment
    How about a Samurai legend with Bushido X, where X is the number of Equipment attached to it? Better yet, they could grant said Bushido X to your other Samurai as well, or perhaps grant then Bushido X based on their own Bushido X value (so if the Samurai legend has Bushido 3, your other Samurai have Bushido 3). I can also see a RW Human legend from Innistrad who focuses on Humans and Equipment, perhaps playing into the "pitchforks and torches" flavor.

    BR Curses
    Obviously a BR witch should lead this deck. One of the secondary commanders could be a Theros Nyxborn who features a Curse version of Bestow. Becurse?

    GU
    This would be the off-theme deck, which at minimum needs to be GU to ensure every color is represented at least twice.


    This is actually a beautiful idea. I would really love for them to do something like this. What would some other good crossover tribes be?

    Knights / Soldiers?

    Big fan of Hissing Quagmire myself. Acts as a good rattlesnake when someone attacks you. Almost always at least one of my friends forgets I have it up and attacks, and then says "Oh, wait..."

  • posted a message on EDH taking too long
    There are actually a lot of physical cards that help with this. Anything that forces player's creatures to attack each combat might help. Anything that can accelerate mana ramp could also in turn build people up faster so they can have earlier, more explosive plays.

    Aside from things like that, maybe talk it over with your group and get more aggressive decks in the mix.

  • posted a message on Is it too Early to discuss c19?
    I would love to see some more weird decks... just stuff that hasn't been fully explored or fleshed out yet.

    I'd love to see something like Necrotic Ooze as a Sultai Commander [legendary ooze]. Something focused around making some kind of really crazy synergistic monster.

    I would also be interested in another really political commander, but not group hug. Something more like Pheldagriff would be great, or maybe something like Sen Triplets?

    I think a -1/-1 counter Jund commander could be really cool, but they just did Jund in C18.

    Another fun deck would be Red/Black chaos, something I have always wanted to attempt to build but never had the guts. Perhaps all the recent coin flip cards are a sign of what is to come?

    Have we had a dedicated Blink deck really? That could be fun.

    I probably would not mind seeing a colorless deck themed around the Eldrazi, but only if they retconned it so you could include Devoid cards in a deck with a colorless Commander.

    I would also really love to see a Morph themed commander: Preferably either Sultai or Temur. This seems like a likely choice because it has a lot of support already and could easily be made really viable with the right commander at the helm and some juicy new cards.

    Last but not least, please give me a Saproling themed deck. I know we have Ghave, but I need some more cards focused around Saprolings.

    In my dreams, this year's product will be plane themed and will feature legends from minor/lesser known/obscure/old planes like Lorwyn, Kamigawa, Mercadia, Segovia or Ulgrotha.

    It's not going to happen though.


    They do often throw old legends in the mix though, so even if the decks aren't themed directly around them, some of your favorite legends might be featured in the products!

    I would not mind seeing tribal decks again I suppose. I really want a Black/Blue Faerie tribal deck.

    Just wanted to start a speculation thread to see what ideas people were considering for our next Commander Product.

    Some ideas I have been considering:

    VILLAINS -- Each Commander deck would be themed around an iconic villain from Magic. They could do a Phyrexia deck (Mono Black with Artifacts), Nicol Bolas (featuring a Planeswalker you could use as a Commander), etc.

    PLANES -- Decks featured around a specific plane and the themes strongest on those planes.

    What do you guys think?

    Idk about "free", but any type of mana rock that creates any color of mana might be be decent. There are also lands that can convert mana or create any color or mana.
