Commander / EDH


Commander (1)


https://edh100.wordpress.com/2016/03/17/game-194-rayne-academy-chancellor-plus-detailed-deck-breakdown/Rayne has been one of my favorite cards since I got her in a Urza's Whateever starter theme deck long ago. As a former Teacher, I decided to make her into a Theme deck all about school life. Couldn't really decide on a name, though I like Tolarian Flight Academy, Rayne's School Days, and Tolaria College Prep and Airforce ROTC...

Oh, The theme is so stylish that I almost forgot that this deck has the additional restriction of being ALL PERMANENTS! No instants or sorceries.

Here's the breakdown : (Go Beebles!):
