Commander Clash: Elder Dragon Strixhaven | S10 E14


Strixhaven has arrived and with it comes a new cycle of Elder Dragons! These creatures hold a special place in the format since the original Elder Dragons were the first commanders available when it was still called Elder Dragon Highlander. To honor that legacy, we decided to give the new Elder Dragons a spin in this episode! Here's what we've got:

  • Crim gets aggressive this week, flooding the board with beaters and closing out with Shadrix Silverquill
  • Richard has big beasties this week, loading them up with +1/+1 counters and swinging with Tanazir Quandrix
  • Seth just wants to ramp into a giant X spell finisher with the help of Beledros Witherbloom
  • Tomer is looking to Storm off with a $100 Spellslinger deck led by Galazeth Prismari

Which Elder Dragon will come up on top of this Dragon War? Find out now on Commander Clash! But first, a quick reminder: if you like Commander Clash and other video content here on MTGGoldfish, make sure to subscribe to the MTGGoldfish Youtube Channel to keep up with the latest and greatest.

New Season House Bans

In addition to the official Commander ban list, we have a collection of house bans. This list changes with each season. For Season 10 we started with a clean slate and banned cards based on three loose criteria:

  1. Cards that were played too much last season.
  2. Cards that regularly caused games to revolve around them.
  3. Cards that are far out of the budget of the average viewer.

With this in mind, here is our new ban list for Season 10:

So this is a major shakeup to our ban list. A lot of Commander Clash staples like Smothering Tithe, Rhystic Study, and Dockside Extortionist are out, and there no longer will be the threat of Notion Thief + Windfalls that dominated conversations. 

However, there are some notable unbans: expensive cards like Wheel of Fortune are now allowed (for now). Plus for the first time in a long time, fast mana like Sol Ring is back on the table!

Our house bans are meant to encourage more entertaining games for you, the viewers, so let us know what you think of the new ban list! We'll be following all the feedback from the early episodes to see how you all are enjoying it.

What Are You Playing On?

We're playing Commander on a program called Magic Online. If you're interested in Magic Online then check out my guide to the program over here!

Next Week: Banned Commander!

We talked about the ban list recently and what cards we think should be unbanned, so next week we're testing it out! We're upgrading our personal deck lists with some banned cards and seeing how they pan out!
