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.
Welcome to another edition of Word of Command! In this month's issue, Commander moderator bobthefunny goes over a more local issue of how to get the most out of your threads in our Commander subforums. If you need help with your deck, then follow the advice below to get the best chance of receiving quality answers.
In this month's Word of Command, we investigate a powerful new mechanic introduced in Shadows over Innistrad, and how Clues can aid a deck in myriad ways. Expanding on the concept of expanding one's hand through card draw, the Tariel deck from last month is given a suite of cards for card advantage.
In this edition of Word of Command, we take a look at one of the most basic elements of Commander decks: lands.

In this edition of Word of Command, we discuss the ban list update accompanying Oath of the Gatewatch, the removal of the partial Paris mulligan, the removal of the contested Rule 4, and some new cards of interest. Don't miss your chance to swear this oath before the shadows come over us!
In this special issue of Word of Command, the Commander forum moderators speak with members of the Duel Commander rules committee and their regional coordinators. Learn more about Duel Commander, previously known as "the French banlist," and how MTGSalvation is increasing support for this popular format!
This year's enemy colored decks have just come out, so we're going to take this issue of Word of Command to look over the new Commanders and assess their strengths and potential builds. Enemy colored pairs have generally had low representation for Commander options, so this years product helps shore up some pairs with less options, and opens new playstyles for other pairs.
In this article, we discover how to combat commanders, which sometimes pop up in Commander. From exiling to sacrificing to countering them, just because you can't tuck them doesn't mean they're invincible.
Welcome to the fifth Word of Command! A new set means a new look at cards from a Commander's perspective! Though a small set, Fate Reforged was quite generous for us with ten new legendary creatures. A new set also means a new ban list update, so we'll go through the news from Commander in general and the forum in particular, then start discussing the cards.
Welcome to the fourth Word of Command! I hope everyone had an excellent holiday break; mine was especially busy! Jumping right in, after our usual news section this article will focus on lesser known or less popular methods to generate continual advantage during a game. Hopefully you'll be inspired to try out some new ideas in a deck this year!
