Kaladesh. The home of inventors, tinkerers, and master crafters. No wonder that this set is sure to excite the craftiest of deck builders! With the set now released, it is time to see what cards can provide value to existing decks, and which ones might push the creation of a new deck altogether. So let's get to looking at what works, and what does not.
In this month's look at Kaladesh, the Commander mod team looked over some of the cards that show great promise and selected the card of each color that showed the most promise.
We also came up with some more technical options: some hidden potentials which will not be for every deck, but something some crafty builders could make good use of. Finally, we of course go over the new legendary creatures of the set, and see how they might measure up as potential Commanders.
