Wacky Wednesdays: Commander Edition

Welcome, readers, to another edition of Wacky Wednesdays. Welcome also, to Fate Reforged! What better way to acknowledge the return of dragons to Tarkir than by featuring a dragon themed deck? Today I will be going over a Commander deck containing one of my all-time favorite interactions in the game, and a lot of dragons.

This deck, built by my brother, is a tribal deck made of one of Magic's most iconic creatures: Dragons. The commander is none other than Scion of the Ur-Dragon. Using his unique ability, this deck is able to create a myriad of wacky combos and interactions.

Before we go any further, have a look at the deck: Dragon Tales

Primer Series: Modern Burn

W  B  R

I have been wanting to start a deck primer series here since late last year (meaning a couple months ago) and after how well last week's Prerelease Primers went for Fate Reforged, I figured now would be a great time to start this.

For January, I'd like to present one of the easiest to play, relatively cheapest, and one of my favorite decks to play in Modern.

Abzan at the Fate Reforged Prerelease

Upon seeing Bolster and many of the white, black, and green spells and creatures available in Fate Reforged, I decided to choose Abzan for the prerelease. After choosing Temur for the Khans of Tarkir prerelease, I felt that this would work as a better choice, especially as I don't recall doing so well in that prerelease.

Fate Reforged Prerelease Primer: Temur

The final day of our Fate Reforged Prerelease Primer week. I'm kind of relieved it's over... Both Abzan and Jeskai were finished about four hours before it was published. I think Sultai and Mardu were much better, but that's just my opinion. Lots of long rambling I suppose...

Anyway, let's visit the Temur so that you're ready at midnight tonight!

Fate Reforged Prerelease Primer: Mardu

Today, I'm featuring the Mardu in their respect for the speed of dragons. With Mardu, the best way to walk away victorious is to move fast. This means creatures with haste, utilizing the new mechanic Dash, and backing up your team of creatures with Raid (the mechanic from Khans of Tarkir, not that brand of insecticides and pesticides). We're moving fast, so keep up!
