Casual commander player who was late to Magic but just absorbed it and got deeply hooked immediately. I know this now about how I play:

  • I mostly prefer black, red, and white
  • I do not like blue at all
  • I do not like infinite combos
  • I love reading about other people's decks and seeing how folks have figured out their strategies
  • While I play some really popular commanders, I find that I really like commanders that are slightly off the beaten path

Please comment on my decks and I'll comment on yours for sure!

A few tweaks to this deck - I had a win the other night that showcased the staying power of Marchesa and her army, and I noticed a few dead-ish cards that I've swapped out. I may have cut back too far on the counter spells in this deck (I cut Swan Song for example), but we'll see how the next few go.

Despite some successes, I've made a significant change in tuning this deck. I realized I wanted to maximize a few things: (1) ways to cheat in creatures from the graveyard, like Animate Dead and Necromancy, to really go all-in on reanimator themes, (2) ETB effects, and (3) some aristocrats-styled pain effects like damage or sacrifice or mill. I took out some things that could sort of work like Bolas's Citadel b/c of its high CMC and the fact that life may become more valuable once we get that late into a game. We'll see how this goes!

Peoni Thank you so much for the recommendations - your point about the snow lands is so good, I have been meaning to invest in those and I think this is the push to just finally do it. I have this card in my mono black deck as well so I have to think hard about it.

I have been thinking about Pyroblast and Red Elemental... I had them in an earlier build, and when I didn't use them for a month or so, I figured I could just swap in more "fun" cards. But I think you're right about them. And same with the mana rocks... I like the cumulative gains in the later game that I get with the bigger rocks, but maybe the speed is more important.

After some misfires and a general feeling that I wasn't interactive enough, I've added a few counters, ramping artifacts, and draw-enablers. Had a win against two mono blue decks, which felt good. Still more to test though.

Success! Won my first game after these edits... having more ramp in there helped, especially Burnished Hart which was an ALL STAR early game (there's a reason why it's a staple). Recurred it twice in turns 3 and 4 and just took off from there. Ravenous Chupacabra was an every-turn tool, and Dualcaster stopped a spell cold for me. I think this deck will hold up in its state, with maybe a few tweaks here or there.

yeah it looks like treasure nabber fell off instead of beseech the queen...

it looks like beseech the queen is still in your decklist, fyi... was there another card you removed instead?
