Theros: Beyond Decks
Posted on Jan. 13, 2020, 5:20 p.m. by Paeldroth
Now that Theros 2020 has been fully spoiled - which commander decks of yours are getting the most changes? Which are relatively unconcerned with the new cards?
Share your thoughts!
My Mairsil, the Pretender Should I Pretend This Or That? might be getting as many as 4 changes. Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling come with effects already in the deck on a handy dandy indestructible source. So they are pretty much guaranteed to go in. Shadowspear is neat and, imo, perhaps a bit stronger than it should be but allows me to get rid of some stuff more easily. Though I'm much more on the fence on that one. I guess Nyx Lotus is kinda an obvious one to mention but I'm hesitant to include it with Mairsil. I generally don't have a lot of things in play so my devotions stay pretty low but the effect could be useful.
New Thassa will also go in my newly built Yarok Desecrated Tokens but nothing else jumped out at me for that deck.
I don't think I'm making any other changes but I still need to check over the entire set again.

My Yisan deck should benefit nicely from Nyxbloom Ancient . Kenrith will definitely do good with the new dryad too

I know I want Thryx, the Sudden Storm and Whirlwind Denial for my Isperia. Shatter the Sky and Mirror Shield are maybes. Thought of Nyx Lotus but likely too slow I think. Haven't really sat down and thought about all the other decks yet XD

Oh snap I forgot about that crazy elemental that's going right into my Omnath, Locus of the Roil deck.

Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest $1-dollar enchantress. It's actually looking like a real deck, now that like 1/4 of the cards have been changed.
