Commander Mondays (9/23/13): Obzedat, Ghost Council

Continuing on my monthly builds for Commander, I will be bringing you Obzedat, Ghost Council. There are plenty of great cards that can be paired with Obzedat that also hold the flavor of Orzhov.

Before we begin, I want to apologize for posting this a week late. I was very busy two weeks ago and did not have time to write this post. The same is true about this week, but I found some time to get this deck in (along with the one that was supposed to be written for today).

Also, this deck is from the pre-Theros Standard environment (M13, M14, Innistrad Block, and RTR Block).

The main idea of this deck is for life gain and slowly bleeding your opponent dry. We have many creatures with Extort, as well as many other ways to bleed life off your opponents.

Kingpin's Pet  Pontiff of Blight  Treasury Thrull

The other concept in this deck is all the spirits that can be generated. This way, you have a flying army of 1/1 tokens (which can be pumped by spells that increase power and toughness for all your creatures during a turn).

Lingering Souls  Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts  Midnight Haunting
