Deck Tech Commander
Brago, Temporally Infinite
Commander

03 Jun by WanderingTaoist

This deck never dies.  I swear.  Unless you yolo and get mana screwed, you are likely to be the last player standing, and will probably win due to getting infinite turns.  That being said... This deck is purpose built, and is all/only about setting up for infinite turns via Brago flic...

Extus, Combo Overlord
Commander

08 May by ragnarok114

Update 5/2021: Removed Mountain/Plains/Swamp for Altar of Dementia, Cathartic Reunion and Valakut Awakening. The curve of the deck is fairly low and I flooded with too few cards in hand several games in a row. The extra sac outlet and mill were quite nice as well.  Welcome to the Society of the...

Thrasios and Tymna - Efficient
Commander

17 Apr by ussgraf

Deck Summary These two partner commanders together are believed to be one of, if not the best commanders in the Commander format.  There's good reason behind this opinion, as these decks can be constructed to be extremely efficient, and the card draw available to the commanders will allow you t...

Degenerate Yawgmoth
Commander

10 Nov by ragnarok114

Update 3/29/21: Took out Syr Konrad and Black Market for Vampiric Tutor and Feed the Swarm. Considered cutting Phyrexian Arena instead of Market. Syr Konrad is redundant to other pingers in the deck and the goal is to go infinite, not slowly chip opponents down; for that purpose his CMC is too high....

[Commander] Selesnya Tokens
Commander

19 May by sinpyro

If any of you know me, you know that in Brawl, Selesnya tokens is my favorite deck to run. Back when the precons for the last Commander decks were released, I purchased the Madness deck at first but didn't find it to my liking. Then I bought the Ghired deck and immediately felt like I was in my whee...

Apocalypse Rats
Commander

20 Apr by MtGManiac

Ok, so I've been fascinated with Relentless Rats ever since I first laid eyes on them. Call it my inner Johnny, or Spike, I don't know. I've looked at many other Relentless Rats EDH decks, most of which are mono-black; and I just wasn't impressed. They were boring, and generally one-dimensional, so ...
