Searching for cards that begin with the letter M

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on June 1, 2019, 10:29 p.m. by MyFETTish

So I challenged a friend who builds a lot of commander decks. The challenge is to build a deck that, besides lands, only begins with our first letter of our name. He has the letter "B". I have the letter "M". Is there an easy way to search for cards that fit that? Also any suggestions for "M" commanders?

You could probably do some kind of advanced search on Scryfall or Gatherer to find cars beginning with the letter "M". A Google search might help, too, but that may be too narrow.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest comes to mind as a Commander.

You should find all M's here for commanders. Sorry I tried linking it so just copy and paste.

You'll probably have an easier time with more colors. Marchesa, the Black Rose , Maelstrom Wanderer , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , or something else 3+ colors.

I just think it's hilarious you have access to Mana Vault and Mana Crypt... seems fair.

Hey, your friendly informatic coming right at you. You can search with regular expressions on Scryfall.

Here's a link to all commander legal cards with name starting with "m".

You can add other specifications to the search bar, like type:legendary, which will impose that the cards searched have to start with "m" and also be legendary.

Once you have chosen your commander, you could also specify commander:WUBRG (but remember to remove type:legendary !!) and keep only the capital letters of your chosen commander's identity in order to narrow down the search. W is white, U is blue, B is black, R is red and G is green.

I hope to have been clear enough.

This is a good reminder to never accept this challenge from anyone with a 'M' name lol.

This is page 17 of a scry fall search filtering with M in the name sorted into alphabetical order. M's stars on page 17 end on page 23.

K1ngMars that is awesome Thank you! landofMordor when i originally offered it as a challenge it was only him and I never thought about my options but hey at least he has a new legendary bear as a commander now! Last_Laugh i will be using your suggestion of Marchesa, the Black Rose i think. it gives me access to a good color pool and should be fun!
