The Justice League of Dominaria

The Leader

The leader of the Justice League continues to change. Golos has abilities that are just too powerful to ignore. Searching for literally any land and casting things from the top of your deck are awesome. He follows in a long line of commanders as the new boss of the deck.

Each of the previous commanders functioned great at the time, but as my meta has shifted and newer legendaries were printed, there became better options to run the deck for me.

Past Commanders (in order of appearance):

  • Progenitus - was great for our early creature-heavy meta.
  • Sliver Queen - did a great job at protecting herself but was a liability with tribal slivers showing up at our table.
  • Jodah, Archmage Eternal - Fist of Suns in the Command Zone was great till Sisay showed up as a tutor as well.
  • Sisay, Weatherlight Captain - effective but short-lived as Golos provides too much utility.

The Foot Soldiers

We have a few cards that help us with tokens to give us bodies to protect us till we do crazy things.

All these Planeswalkers, in addition to their other effects, produce tokens with a non-ultimate ability. Many of them have incredibly useful "ultimate" abilities as well, such as Elspeth, Knight-Errant which can be used immediately if the ever-popular Doubling Season is in play. These tokens serve as the front lines, fighting off the early onslaught of whatever is coming our way.

In addition, some Planeswalkers provide buffs for tokens, such as Sorin, Lord of Innistrad while Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury provides additional removal.

The inclusion of Xenagos, the Reveler means that we can use creatures as a form of mana ramp which also goes along with Freyalise's ability to produce mana dorks.

The Game Changers

These Planeswalker are the ones that definitely have the ability to turn the tide of any game if they go unchecked for too long. Opponents usually find them priority one, which is why we have so many board wipes and ways to attempt to protect all our Planeswalkers.

It is also worth mentioning that most of those ultimates can be used instantly if a Doubling Season is in play at the same time, which makes it an incredibly high priority target in almost every game.

Not that it wasn't already.

It's usually the first enchantment to die unless something someone else controls is threatening lethal damage on someone.

The Creatures

One thing that has remained true for the deck over the years is the very small number of creatures. But these creatures have become better and serve a more direct purpose now a days.

  • Arena Rector was a great addition from Battlebond when I got a hold of a box, proving to be a scary tutor if someone kills it.
  • Captain Sisay allows us to tutor for a monstrous portion of our deck if she gets to stay in play.
  • Jodah, Archmage Eternal is still a Fist of Suns on a stick.
  • Kenrith, the Returned King just has so much value in terms of his utility that he was almost the commander.
  • Sisay, Weatherlight Captain is another strong tutor that just puts cards into play with the added benefit of not caring about summoning sickness.

The Cleaning Crew

Board wipes. Lots of them. 14 to be exact. The easiest effect to abuse was to include every spell that would kill creatures while leaving my Planeswalkers intact. When the board state gets out of control, the table turns to the Justice League to clean-up the mess!
