    Illustrated by James Ryman

    Aristocrats

    Aristocrat decks are a combination of sacrifice effects, reanimating and value creation. Wincons revolve around multiple triggers, either from dying, ETB or cast triggers.

    +1/+1 counters

    White has many great support spells and permanents for +1/+1 counters theme. Counters theme is often combined with White-weenie or token strategy and turns the small creatures into a formidable force.

    -1/-1 Counters

    -1/-1 counters are an opposite of +1/+1 counters. -1/-1 counter decks use -1/-1 counters as a resource and manipulate them for their benefit. Moving, adding and removing the counters on the right moment can turn the tide of the game.

    Tokens

    Mono white token decks aim to create a mass of small creature tokens and then with anthem effects or +1/+1 counter defeat the opponents in combat. White token decks are aggressive decks and aim to flood the battlefield soon rather than later due to the weaker card draw mono white has access to.

    Tempo

    Tempo is a way to describe decks focusing on heavy interaction with efficient mana usage. Tempo decks play a few threats early, and try to chip away opponents HP and resources. Tempo decks are not the fastest decks causing damage, and aim to dragging the game a bit longer, and preventing opponents plans with right timed removals.

    Saboteur

    Saboteur is an effect on a creature triggered whenever the creature deals combat damage to an opponent. Many saboteur creatures have evasion and can wreck havoc with their effects if unanswered.

    Unblockable

    Unblockable creatures often have strong evasion, like flying or fear, or they are simply unblockable. Highly evasive creatures tend to have lower power to balance the strong effect of free damage in combat and tend to have lower toughness too.

    Discard

    The ways to discard are plenty: cycling, rummaging, end steps discard phase, to name a few. Discard decks are built around triggers from discarding, like madness and synergizes well with reanimating.

    +1/+1 counters

    Voltron

    Voltron decks focus on commander damage or a few creatures and turns them into massive, protection-from-everything kind of creatures and finishing off the opponents in combat.

    Lifelink: Illustrated by Terese Nielsen

    Lifegain

    Lifegain is one of the the most popular themes in EDH. Multiple triggers to gain life and value received from the lifegain triggers are really fun to follow as a player. Often lifegain is combined with another theme, +1/+1 counters or creature tokens, as pure lifegain is often not powerful enough to win the game.

    Isochron Scepter: Illustrated by Mark Harrison

    Combo

    Combo decks are control heavy decks, running a heavy amount of card draw or tutors. If the decks get to assemble the combo pieces the game often ends in an infinite combo.

    Drakuseth, Maw of Flames: Illustrated by Grzegorz Rutkowski

    Dragon tribal

    Dragons, alongside Goblins, are reds primary creature types. Dragons are reds strongest creatures and most of the expansions have some kind of red dragon in them. As dragons are expensive to cast, dragon tribal decks run multiple cost reduction effects and have ways to cheat the expensive dragons on the battlefield.

    Avacyn, Angel of Hope: Illustrated by Jason Chan

    Angel Tribal

    Angels are one of Magics strongest creatures, and are comparable to Dragons and Demons. Angels are strong, flying creatures, with often static abilities or strong ETB triggers.

    Cheat Permanents

    Cheating permanents to the battlefield is available in every colours. How the permanents are cheated into play depends on the colours available, eg black uses reanimation from the battlefield and red uses sneaking, meaning the permanent will be sacced in the end of the turn.

    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.
