Commander Kingdom is back with a new episode, and we’re marking a few important milestones this time around. We’ll be welcoming back a previous guest for the first time, and we’ll also have our first member of Wizards of the Coast joining us! Gavin Verhey, Olivia Gobert-Hicks, and Sam of Rhystic Studies face off this month — watch a recording of the episode below, and then check out their decklists!
We often get to hear Gavin Verhey talk about Commander, but it’s a rare treat to watch him play. And he’s brought one of the most unique decks we’ve seen on Commander Kingdom so far: a partner-commander deck filled with coin flip effects. Hopefully luck will be on Gavin’s side in our game!
Olivia’s Atraxa, Praetors’ Voice
Olivia Gobert-Hicks returns to Commander Kingdom this week with one of Magic‘s most popular commanders. There are tons of potential Atraxa builds out there, and Olivia has opted for an enchantment-themed one. She’s also packed some alternate win conditions that take advantage of Atraxa‘s ability — will she try to win with Simic Ascendancy, or with poison counters?
Sam’s Feldon of the Third Path
While Olivia brought a four-color deck to this week’s game, Sam’s deck is a reminder that sometimes you only need one. Feldon of the Third Path can enable some explosive interactions, and Sam’s looking to get value creatures into his graveyard quickly. Expect some fun artifact interactions in this deck, too.
Chris’s Slimefoot, the Stowaway
Last but not least, host Chris has brought a deck he built with help from Card Kingdom’s Twitch chat! His Slimefoot, the Stowaway deck eschews sacrifice themes to go all-in on Saprolings. If you want to help Chris build decks for future Commander Kingdom episodes, be sure to follow us on Twitch and tune into our month deckbuilding show, Crowdsource Commander.
