Single Combat


Each player chooses a creature or planeswalker they control, then sacrifices the rest. Players can't cast creature or planeswalker spells until the end of your next turn.

Unlife on Sorin vs Nahiri Duel Decks …

4 months ago

I've had this idea for a while now, inspired in part by Single Combat. The plan is to build a pair of commander decks, one helmed by Nahiri, the other by Sorin, and themed by there abilities. I've got a couple of rough drafts put together, but I would appreciate some advice in balancing them against each other. It's not about making the best decks, but a pair of decks that are always fairly close when played against one another. Both lean heavily on legendary creatures.

Nahiri Duel Deck 1/2 Nahiri is all about warriors and equipment.

Sorin Duel Deck 2/2 Sorin is vampire tribal with a decent amount of removal.

Any advice is appreciated (in terms of deckbuilding and flavor), thanks in advance.

KBK7101 on Light-Paws, Emperor's Voltron

Played around with Light-Paws a bit in Historic Brawl on Arena after NEO released. Definitely a powerful commander!

Thoughts on Slash the Ranks and Single Combat for more board wipes?

Might wanna spruce up the mana base with the usual suspects as well. Myriad Landscape, War Room, Rogue's Passage etc

eleventhend on Sydri, Galvanic Genius NO creatures

Phyrexian Scriptures is an excellent sweeper to consider——it can turn Sydri into an artifact creature on T1, then sweep everything else T2. With Vedalken Orrery out, you can even chain those back-to-back at the end of the turn before yours.

Single Combat, Divine Reckoning, and similar sweepers might also be worth considering for similar reasons.

How exactly does Rest in peace prevent an Edict effect? If you mean Grave Pact, sure. But it doesn't stop any edicts.

You might consider Robe of Stars for the best protection around, as well as Teferi's Protection. You can't be too protective of a voltron commander.

YOu might consider other cards that lean on the single-creature strategy, such as Single Combat and Divine Reckoning.

seshiro_of_the_orochi on Synergistic Win-Cons for Kotori, Pilot …

I've also never built Azorius, and I'm planning to build Kotori's Mech. A card I'll include is Reins of Power. Casting that with 0 to 2 creatures on board and 5+ vehicles on an opponent with a stacked board will be impressive.

What's more, I'll play Single Combat, Martial Coup and similar board wipes to wipe, then crew my board and hit hard.

Surgesyndicate on Drizzt Our Favorite Drow (Primer)

Nice Build! I like the creature choices you made, it looks super fun with all of the counter synergies.

I'm also trying to build a Drizzt deck currently, with a heavier focus on the swords and equipment (he is a master swordsman, after all). I would definitely recommend anything to help add some evasion to Drizzt, or to force your opponents into tough blocking situations. Single Combat and Tragic Arrogance can help clear the way for your commander quite reliably. Trailblazer's Boots is fantastic in the commander format, and creatures such as Silent Arbiter and Mirra, Weatherlight Duelist can make swinging in a bit safer. Although not really on theme, Grafted Exoskeleton is a one hit KO, which is always our aim in voltron.

Hope some of these suggestions help evolve your deck even futher!
