It is not strength that wins battles but intelligence. The weak-minded cannot possibly appreciate the grandeur of your plans. Fortunately for them, they will not survive long enough to comprehend the depths of their ignorance.
The living have held sway over the Multiverse for far too long. At your hand, flesh will surrender to the inescapability of the grave. The fallen will rise once again, and society's tenuous grasp on order will give way to the simplicity of rot and the beauty of decay.
Filling graveyards with creature cards is a significant part of your strategy. And while this obviously includes killing opposing threats, you'll also have several opportunities to fill your own graveyard to great advantage. Use Zombie Infestation to discard expensive powerhouses like Avatar of Woe, and you'll set yourself up with a fantastic target for spells like Zombify.
Of course, your enemies will probably summon fantastic beasts, stalwart soldiers, and weird flying things to stop you. Such distasteful disharmony. Fortunately, you can unite them all in death's sweet embrace. Your unholy arsenal includes spells with pinpoint accuracy like Terminate and ones that indiscriminately slaughter like Infest.
Your schemes will help you overcome the moratl coil. Only Blood Ends Your Nightmares saddles one of your opponents with an unsavory choice, and death is the inevitable result. Once the graveyards are full, The Dead Shall Serve and My Undead Horde Awakens can give creatures a second chance at the battlefield, this time to do your sinister bidding. Extinguish them all, and show them the true power of the archenemy.
Second only to the majesty of... well, you... is the majesty of dragons. As terrifying as they are timeless, deragons will be your brushes as you paint your masterpiece: a world aflame.
Your deck's approach is fairly straightforward: keep the most serious threats in check and cast your large, powerful Dragon cards as quickly as possible. Accelerators like Seething Song, Thran Dynamo, and even Dragonspeaker Shaman give you the fuel to start your fiery assault on the fragile. You also get to toy with your opponents' minds thanks to the morph mechanic. Is your attacking face-down creature a lowly Skirk Marauder or a mighty Imperial Hellkite? If only panic were flammable.
As the annihilation progresses, behold your enemies and their mightiest creations, futilely trying to stop you, and simply set them on fire. Cackle with glee as Fireball, Savage Twister, and the impressive Chandra's Outrage litter the battlefield with ashen remains of that which would overthrow you.
In additiion to your inferno-inducing arsenal of spells, you have access to hellish schemes ready to obliterate your enemies at a moment's notice. Approach My Molten Realm doubles all damage dealt, shifting your opponents from crispy to extra crispy. Although you may be outnumbered, you can take control of the situation, and most everything else, with My Crushing Masterstroke. Burn them all, and show them the true power of the archenemy.
Brutality. It defines your every action as you ascend to complete domination. It also epitomizes the forces that serve as the pillars to that ascendancy. Your victory is as inevitable as evolution, and the time to rid yourself of the unevolved is now.
You are a champion of the natural order, and as such, you bask in the bounty of nature's resources. Use cards like Fertilid, Leaf Gilder, and Sakura-Tribe Elder to increase the mana you have available. This extra mana will come in handy as you power out savage creatures like Feral Hydra and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa. You will often be able to overwhelm one or two opponents before they can muster a defense.
Although your deck excels at supplying powerful creatures to the battlefield, your other spells are formidable as well. And, like nature, many of them can adapt to changing conditions. Oblivion Ring ably eliminates a variety of troublesome permanents. Cards like Primal Command and Wax / Wane perform many functions, depending on the situation.
Your schemes support your overall strategy mostly by putting more creatures onto the battlefield and making the ones already there even deadlier. Both Evil Comes to Fruition and Roots of All Evil crowd the battlefield in your favor, and The Very Soil Shall Shake ensures your creatures are hitting harder. Stomp them all, and show them the true power of the archenemy.
Each of these new Commander offerings includes a 100-card preconstructed deck and three oversized, foil legendary commander cards (that also appear in the deck). The decks are filled with cards from throughout the history of Magic and also include...
Veteran and aspiring commanders alike will find a haul of treasures inside the Commander’s Arsenal. Up your game with oversized legendary creature cards, a specialized life counter, card sleeves, and more. Best of all, you get 18 premium cards for your decks, some of which have been given foil treatment for the first time.
While playing the "Chaos Reigns" deck, anything is possible! Although your deck is mainly blue, red, and green, it contains spells of all five colors. Early in the game, it's important to develop your mana base by searching up new lands. Late in the game, you'll overwhelm your opponents with flying creatures. But in the middle is where all the fun is!
Make sure you work up an appetite before playing the "Primordial Hunger" deck, because it's feeding time! Many of the creatures in your deck have the devour ability: As one of them enters the battlefield, you can sacrifice any number of your other creatures to grow the new creature to gigantic proportions. For example, if you sacrifice three creatures as Thunder-Thrash Elder enters the battlefield, it'll be a 10/10... and if you sacrifice five creatures as Thromok the Insatiable enters the battlefield, it'll be a 25/25!
If you're playing the "Savage Auras" deck, you're interested in building the perfect creature. At the core of the deck is an array of Auras that upgrade the creatures they enchant. Some, such as Mammoth Umbra and Indrik Umbra, have totem armor in addition to their other abilities. Since totem armor protects the enchanted creature from being destroyed, your creatures wind up stronger and more resilient than ever!
