Introducing the Hero Format




Alt textThe idea is simple, commander on the go. Rules are the same as EDH with a few exceptions

Deck construction.

Hero card: Like a commander but it can be any creature. except for those banned from E.D.H. a player may only have 1 copy of their Hero. Your deck is still defined by your heroes color/s

Excluding your hero, you must have 2 copies of each card in your deck, with the exception of basic lands. leaving room for anywhere between 18-20 different cards in your deck.

A deck must have and may not exceed 61 cards including your hero.

Health starts at 20 and there is no commander damage.

Above is a simple goblin deck using these rules. Red in it's simplest format, small creatures and burn.

Feel free to post your decks below or give feedback. the current banned list is the standard EDH banned list. if you feel a card is TOO powerful please leave a comment and we'll put it under consideration.

If you think that the format could be improved please let me know.
