Dark Souls I: Prepare to Theme Edition

Commander / EDH RBW (Mardu)


This is a deck themed around Dark Souls 1 that contains cards that look like (or at least invoke) every boss, area, and weapon type from the game. This deck took many, many hours to build by scouring the Scryfall art tagger. It's not a good deck, but hopefully other people like it as much as I do. :)

If you have any suggestions, PLEASE let me know.

Note: The printings of cards listed below may not be the ones intended. See the actual decklist for the right printing.
