Ixalan has arrived. Commander 2017 has been around for a little while now too. I have yet to focus on the newest Commander set, so I’m going to do that today. I’m also going to cover one of Commander’s newest win conditions from Ixalan: Revel in Riches. Today’s deck will also feature zero creatures outside of its legendary leader. What creature is best suited to lead a solo expedition for bounty beyond the imagination? Kess, Dissident Mage, of course.
In a lot of campaigns both published and homebrewed, there comes a time in adventures that is free time to the players, perfect examples would be for D&D and Pathfinder. This is a time that players can get a look at your world and see the diverse cultures, people, and even events. It is commonly referred to as downtime. Downtime is a great tool to use for both the DM/GM and players. DM/GM’s can use this time to both show off the people of his created cities, the way the people see the players can be seen now as well. If they have just completed a long adventure that may have changed the need for guard’s presence is certain districts, or there is hallowed ground once again after extinguishing a curse that had been laid upon the land. It is also an effective way to foreshadow the next threat that is rising or can be used as a time for you to get the next story arc ready as your players start other activities not related to dungeon crawling or adventuring.
Alright, we made it through all of the decks from our last Changes article just in time for, you guessed it (you probably didn’t guess), the newest Changes article! After some pretty boring land cuts last article and literal nothing from the new Commander set, Ixalan brings lots of new additions. Let’s break into them and take a look at the lists as they are right now!
