For some reason Chevill, Bane of Monsters reminded me of Sir Hammerlock from Borderlands franchise, so why not build a deck around that? This is a continuation on this.
I don’t think Hammerlock would actually be black, but don’t tell anyone. He is a hunter, but he has (at least in the beginning) naturalist motivations, as he is interested in conservation more than killing. It just so happens that these attempts don’t quite go as planned and these rare creatures just happen end up as trophies on his wall. Later on, the character is depicted more as a hunter, who is interested in learning about these exotic creatures. His method just happens to be to pay someone to kill them.
After my Nethroi and Umori combo I started to think about other potential companions. Lurrus of the Dream-Den seems like a very antithetical companion for EDH, so hypothetically what would one do with it?
There’s only two options for commander.
Although they do pretty much the same thing, I decided to go with the latter.
I was watching EDH and Chill, where they had a video game theme. What game would I use for such a purpose? I’ll probably make a series of this at some point, because games like Binding of Isaac and Dishonored (both of which I actually like more than the game I’m about to go into) would make interesting decks as well.
But, as I’ve been playing plenty of Borderlands 3 lately, Borderlands it is. But with a very specific view of the world.
Spoilers for new Theros started yesterday. There were leaks before, but I’m going to be boring and join the no-leaks crowd. This means that we only have three cards to play with at this point. Not sure there was anything Standard playable anyhow. (Although there might have been, I just don’t remember.)
Ah, a new format. Well, sort of. It’s quite obvious that the first decks out there will be strong decks from Standards past or light versions of Modern decks. Like Rally or Saheeli Cat. I’m not going that route.
“What?”, you might be asking right now. Obviously, right now, I don’t really know what will be good when the set comes out, but what I can do is speculate. I mean, we do know the rest of the shocks are coming up, so that’s a start. It’ll give us the crucial Godless Shrine. Actually, the shocks are going to enable a lot of decks. There are already GR-decks without Stomping Grounds.
