Associated: The ten finest Mono-Blue commanders in Magic: The Gathering
The Precon Commander decks for Magic: The Gathering give gamers a pre-made library for the Commander format, permitting them to leap straight into video games with no need to construct a deck from scratch. Phyrexia: All Will Be One may have two Commander Decks: Corrupting Affect and Riot Rising. These Commander Decks characterize the 2 sides of the battle on Phyrexia, as a resistance motion emerges on the aircraft.
Ixhel, Scion of Atraxa is the Commander of Corrupting Affect
Corrupting Affect is a black, inexperienced, and white deck that’s themed round Poison Counters. In Magic: The Gathering, inflicting an enemy participant with ten Poison Counters will trigger them to lose the sport. This deck makes use of two of the brand new key phrases in Phyrexia: All Will Be One; Poisonous, which inflicts Poison Counters alongside harm, and Corrupted, which supplies bonuses when an opposing participant has three or extra Poison Counters.
The Commander of this deck is Ixhel, Scion of Atraxa, which is a 2/5 Phyrexian Angel with Flying, Vigilance, and Poisonous 2. Essentially the most fascinating facet of Ixhel is its Corrupted capacity, because it forces a participant to exile a card face down throughout their repairs, which Ixhel’s participant can forged utilizing any kind of mana. That is an superior capacity, because it lets the participant flip their opponent’s playing cards towards them. The one draw back is that it doesn’t kick in till an enemy participant has been hit with three or extra Poison Counters, so it’s not one thing that can be utilized immediately.
Neyali, Solar’s Vanguard is the Commander of Riot Rising
The Riot Rising is a extra simple deck, because it focuses on summoning a lot of tokens and utilizing them to beat down the opposing participant. The Commander of this deck is Neyali, Solar’s Vanguard, who’s a 3/3 Human Insurgent with the flexibility to present tokens Double Strike. If a token assaults throughout a flip, Neyali’s participant exiles the highest card of their library, which they’ll then play throughout any flip when a token assaults. The primary downside of this impact is that the playing cards can solely be performed after fight has been initiated, which limits the time through which they can be utilized, particularly in comparison with Ixhel’s capacity. The constructive facet of Neyali’s capacity over Ixhel’s is that it doesn’t require Poison Counters, which implies it may be introduced into the sport lots earlier.
