Commander Clash S10 E3: $50 Budget Brews | Orvar vs. Toski vs. Miara & Numa vs. Esior & Radiant


$50 And a Dream

Today the crew steps into my wheelhouse: each of us are building decks with a $50 budget! This budget restriction means a lot of our usual Commander staples are now off the table and we'll need to find alternatives! Here's what we came up with:

Can the crew make functional decks with only $50? 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.

We don't play Historic Brawl very often, but one of my favorite commanders of the year just came to Magic Arena. So, let's do some brawling with Go-Shintai of Life's Origin Shrines!
