Guild Commander - Rakdos

Commander / EDH*


This is one of ten decks builded to battle only to each other in multiplayer, in an adaptation of the normal Commander, the "Guild Commander". In Guild Commander there are additional rules, still to be defined, but the core are:

  • Every deck have 99 cards + 4 Legendary creatures (due to tecnical limitations of the site, the remaining 3 are in the side);

  • The 4 Legends are divided in 2 "Guildmasters" (the actual commanders) and 2 "Champions" (with no particular abilities, at the moment) in the command zone. In this deck the Guildmasters are Rakdos, Lord of Riots and Rakdos the Defiler, while the Champions are Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch and Lyzolda, the Blood Witch;

  • A player can control only one Guildmaster and one Champion at the same time. If a player have two or more Guildmasters in play, the legendary rule applies, even if they do not have the same name. The same applies to Champions;

  • Every Guildmaster and every Champion pay the commander tax separately.

The purpose is to improve each deck equally, none of them stronger then the others. Now they are still at an embrional stage, a sample list made of the majority of the multicolor cards, plus some filler card. The deckbuilding rules are:

  • For maximum flavour, only cards from the two Ravnica blocks can be used;

  • For maximum flavour, again, each deck can hold only neutral cards or cards of the own guild (guild cards are those with guild symbol in the text box);

  • Due to limited economics resources, not very cheap cards like Dark Confidant, Voice of Resurgence or the Shocklands are generally avoided;

  • Every suggestion must be done considering the impact in the ten decks metagame.

This deck is a good example of what I have in mind: Plane Clash - Rakdos, Lord of Riots

To be ready to play, it needs only a bit of modification, like:

So, only 12 cards remain to have the first decklist completed.

I hope, after a bit of work, to get a fun, alternative way to play Commander, enjoying at the same time the incredible flavour that only the ten Ravnica Guilds can offer. Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
