Sami Lindqvist

Hi everybody, I'm Sami, the creator of EDH Chamber. I've played MTG from 2020 now, mostly Commander but I have a little bit of experience of pre-MH2 modern too. My goal is to build new, interesting and challenging decks. Really hope to find new out-of-color-pie commander decks like Dimir dragons!

Felisa, Fang of Silverquill, Illustrated by: Sara Winters

Orzhov counter aristocrats: Felisa Fang of Silverquill

Felisa is an interesting commander combining death triggers and counters. Orzhov has relatively low amount of counter synergies (except in mono white) but has high amount of death trigger synergies.

Kamiz, Obscura Oculus: Illustrated by Chris Rallis

Esper Tempo deck: Kamiz, Obscura Oculus with Saboteur

When Streets of New Capennas Obscura deck was released I immediately found Kamiz interesting, as the commander allows many different strategies varying from unblockable to draw matters, from discarding to reanimating in Esper colors. This is my take on Kamiz as a mix of all as a strong Tempo deck.

Evelyn, the Covetous: Illustrated by Marta Nael

Grixis Vampire tribal and exile with Evelyn

Streets of new Capenna introduced a new vampire tribal commander in Grixis colors. Evelyn has an interesting way to provide value with vampire tribal and the decks power level increases according your opponents decks!

Izzet Jank Pirate Tribal: Malcolm + Breeches

Mono blue, Izzet and Grixis have been the main colors for Pirate tribals for ever. I wanted to build a pirate tribal deck focusing on the pirating: exile your opponents cards, play them yourself and turn them into your weapons.

Many new commanders were spoilered 2022-04-08. This is my quick thoughts of three interesting 3-ones.

Three interesting new commanders from New Capenna

Streets of New Capenna is the home of five old mob families, but the new spoiled commanders are not demons. Here is my quick thoughts of the new Grixis, Esper and Jund commanders. Or like in New Capenna Maestros, Obscura and Riveteers

Karador, Ghost Chieftain, art by: Todd Lockwood. Karador is the third most popular abzan commander in EDHREC for abzan.

Abzan graveyard creatures deck: Karador, Ghost Chieftain

Creature decks and graveyard decks are very popular archetypes in commander. Abzan provides great synergies for both colors and Karador is great choice as a commander for both playstyles.

Silumgar flies to the dimir lands laying waste to every opponent.

EDH Dragon tribal deck: Dimir dragons

Tribal decks are very popular in EDH. Dragon tribal is the third most popular tribal theme according to EDHRec with over 13k decks available. Most of these decks are Gruul, Jund, Rakdos or 5-color decks, though. This deck is off-color Dragon tribal with Silumgar as the Commander.

Sword to Plowshares is the best single removal in Commander

Best removals in Commander for each color

In commander you often end up in a situation where you have no other options than removal. Here is a collection of the best removals in the commander format. All these removals are commander staples and have a home in almost any deck with the given color identity.

Simic snake elf scout commander: Lonis, Cryptozoologist

Simic clue token commander: Lonis, Cryptozoologist

Simic commander decks are often called value decks: playing spells, drawing cards and doing tons of stuff and prolonging the games. This simic deck: Lonis, Cryptozoologist Clue token deck has several wincons including milling, combat, tapping out your opponents whole board and stealing nonland permanents.

Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose

Mono black commander: Vito, lifegain and vampire tribal

Next up in my mono colored decks is black. As black can do literally (maybe not ramp?) everything by paying life or sacrificing creatures and has the best tutors in the format I wanted to restrict my options by having a strict tribal deck.
