Wuhan also comes alongside a clause stating that he must attack a randomly selected player each turn, but as a more aggressive strategy, this isn't a awful downside. Radio of the Many is one of the commanders of this list that most visibly choreographs what you want to be doing with your Vol tron strategy.
Most importantly however, is the instant speed nature of this ability, which allows for various equipment-centric shenanigans to be pulled on your opponents turns. One would be hard-pressed to find a vol tron commander that fulfills this strength more effectively than SYR Gwyn, Hero of Ash vale.
As if this wasn't enough, SYR Gwyn also accelerates your strategy by drawing you a card each time an equipped creature you control attacks. The most recent commander on this list, the merfolk Lakes, Crater of Wonders is sure to make a big splash in the world of Vol tron decks.
With SRAM, Senior Edifice at the helm of your Vol tron deck, such a fate is never a possibility. SRAM's ability is very simple: whenever you cast an equipment, aura, or vehicle, draw a card.
Possessing both hex proof and a versatile ability that allows for Market's controller to cast noncreature spells from the top of their library for without paying their costs, East is one of the most popular commander choices in the entire format. While she can be utilized in numerous ways, building a Market deck around a Vol tron strategy is a viable option, allowing for massive and impactful auras to be cast for free and placed on your already difficult to remove Market.
Firstly, he gets +2/+2 for each aura attached to him, creating additional advantages and incentives to build up URL as a threat. URL, the Mist stalker may be a bit MANA intensive for some, as he possesses a converted MANA cost of five, but his flexible NASA color identity and his ability to grow and protect himself makes him the benchmark of what we want to see from Vol tron commanders.
About The Author Paul Salvo (119 Articles Published) Staff Writer, Paul Salvo is a writer, comic creator, animation lover, and game design enthusiast currently residing in Boston, Massachusetts. In Magic's EDS commander format, players begin with a higher life total of 40, so it can take a while to deplete all of your rival's hit points.
Thus, you can morph Scion into whatever reptile your situation needs, and considering EDS's massive 100 card deck list, you'll have plenty of options. Thankfully, green's ramp prowess should quickly amass the resources for an early play and once fielded, URL's hex proof prevents your opponent (but not you) from targeting him with spells or abilities.
While her 3/2 stats are low, Market joins with both hex proof and first strike, letting her deal combat damage first in battle (and potentially avoid a counterattack). This can provide anything from auras to planes walkers to extra turns through groceries, making noncreature Market builds a surprisingly effective vol tron option.
To avoid this hefty downside, use the cheap and colorless “Torpor Orb” artifact to disable entrance effects. Plus, Torpor Orb only hinders entrance effects, so Tresserhorn's ability to regenerate himself with one black MANA stays intact, offering an inexpensive defense against destruction, and many players consider Tresserhorn's colors of red, blue, and black the ideal trio for a vol tron win.
With these traits, Thru's simply hard to stop; grant him trample, and some power/toughness boosts to rapidly decimate foes as they struggle to find a removal. Thankfully, Random's black and red leanings provide several excellent ways to land damage (“Lightning Bolt,” “Blood Artist,” etc.
Random also reduces the CMC of your creature spells by one for each life opponents have lost during a turn, so even if he falls, you'll have likely fielded other powerful demons to finish what he began. Use white's best auras like “Ethereal Armor” and “Daybreak Coronet” to boost Brunei to monstrous proportions and score that commander damage win.
He only costs three resources and prevents your green MANA from depleting as phases and turns end, stockpiling your unspent fuel for future use! Banned as of this writing in duel commander (but not in the general EDS format), Our costs just four manas and accesses the useful white, blue, and black factions.
His stats are mediocre at 1/4, but Our wields flying and the abundant human and wizard subtypes, strengthening several clan effects. Additionally, counters remain on Skullbriar even if he moves to the graveyard, command zone, or exile, so you'll recast him with as much strength as he had before dying.
For instance, “Swift foot Boots” bestows haste and hex proof, “Hammer of Nathan” offers two extra power plus indestructible, and the fierce “Sword of” cards grant +2/+2, protection to two colors, and several direct hit abilities. Remember, protection assists vol tron strategies both as a defense and as a method of becoming unlockable to certain colors, letting your commander damage slip through unimpeded.
But for now, as we eagerly await Wizards of the Coast's next expansion of legendary creatures, vote for your favorite commander, and I'll see you at our next MTG countdown! The German website buffed.DE has released an interview with Gavin Versa about Commander Legends.
If you have players coming right into Magic through Commander Legends, what I highly recommend is to start them with one of our two already preconstructed Commander decks releasing with the set. They’re very approachable, and provide a great basis to learn how to play Magic and Commander from.
Which colors, commanders or archetypes do you recommend for beginners to pick in a draft? There are things to love about all the color combinations, but if you’re coming in fresh, there are two that I would really aim for.
In general, I tend to draft Commanders below bombs and sometimes removal, but above Evasion. If you draft one of the standard sets like Zanzibar: Rising with only four people, there is often the problem that the card pool is very limited, and it is really hard to build a cohesive deck.
That said, playing sealed is always a fine option too, and I would definitely do that if you have 3 or fewer players. Many players who already have, for example, a pirate or cascade deck will be happy about this support.
Modern Horizons and Jumpstart both came from it… and it’s where I formally pitched Commander Legends! The set hit many delays on the path to being released, including a big one where decided we needed more time to test all the partners.

Most of his fleet was also destroyed, yet High Priestess Hangar survived and is still commanding the major parts of the broken Empire. The Gala Empire has existed for over 10,000 years, conquering planets in search of the powerful energy source known as Quintessence.
Since that time they have conquered much of the known universe, colonizing planets and mining the crystal-producing Balm era for Quintessence in order to further their ambitions. Their advanced technology and the mystical powers of their Druids have left them virtually unstoppable, particularly given the scattering of Voltron's components by King Alford the Great during the final attack on Alter.
The Gala eventually made their way to the edge of Earth's solar system where they abducted Shirt, Samuel Holt and Matthew Holt while the trio were conducting an exploratory mission on Kerberos. After being imprisoned for a year, Shirt managed to escape, return to Earth and was followed by the Gala, who had discovered the Blue Vol tron Lion's hiding place on the planet and were determined to claim it.
While many joined Motor as seeming allies of Vol tron, others like Sendai's Fire of Purification sought a different way to achieve victory. After the Paladins learned of Motor's true motives, they turned on him with their only Gala allies the members of the Blade of Marmara.
After Motor was lost, the empire divided even further with no clear leader and resulted in Gala such as For taking the opportunity to seize more power and better parts in their faction of the empire, which in turn caused ACA to defect. Sendai led his forces in an invasion of Earth, which ended in most of his fleet being destroyed and his own death at the hands of Keith.
With Sendai's defeat, the Gala Empire as a political entity essentially ceased to exist. Hangar proceeded to call a Oral Era, only to kill both the Archivist, and the assembled Gala leadership when they gathered for the ceremony, and essentially declared herself dictator of the remaining pieces of the Empire.
Upon her own death, and the restoration of Dieback, the remaining factions of the Empire gathered on Fair, where Keith was offered the chance to climb the steps of the Oral Era unopposed. Although he turned the offer down, he still rallied the Gala to work together rebuild the galaxy they ravaged.
The Emperor would then delegate authority to various warlords and generals to manage the inner affairs of the Empire. Rather, upon the incumbent's death, the most prominent Gala officials and leaders would assemble on the planet Fair for the Oral Era, a ritual to determine the new Emperor (the only thing Motor's heritage seemed to grant him was an opportunity to participate).
The ritual was fairly simple, only consisting of any Gala taking one of the torches, ascending the steps to the shrine at the top of the monument, and lighting a new flame. The headquarters of the Gala Empire is the Central Command System, which is where Carbon's main ship and fleet resides.
They each follow patterns and perform tasks assigned to them such as patrolling ships, guarding prisoners or locations and manning control rooms. They are quite capable of hand-to-hand combat but are generally armed with (and seemingly over-reliant on) large laser rifles.
Druids have the ability to manipulate Quintessence at will to project bolts and shields and levitate objects. Their claws also resemble Shirt's prosthetic Gala arm, wherein they glow purple and cause damage when used against unprotected flesh or even the Paladins' advanced Altman armor.
They can also teleport and move with lightning speed, making it very hard to hit one unless multiple opponents are fighting one Druid. Carbon believed Hangar had his best interests at heart and therefore followed and sponsored her experiments, even those above military actions.
