I built this as my first Commander deck. It definitely represents that kitchen sink kind of design I tend to go for when playing Commander. First: the man himself. Next: the deck.

Lots of creatures in this one but unusual ones. With Argus giving the kind of boost he does, my goal was to find red creatures with power less than toughness and white creatures with toughness less than power. For those colors, it's usually the other way around.

There's the red and white creatures as well: there's no sense in ignoring a good synergy. I just don't think I have enough red and white creatures to support a whole Commander deck's worth of offense. That might change after Ravnica, but for now things are what they are.

I don't know that there's anything too interesting to talk about here but I can tell you that I think it's a fun deck to play. Let's go with that.


  1. no captain's maneuver or rise of the hobogoblins? Powerstone Minefield? :p

  2. Shh! I won't have anything to talk about next time!
