Commander Clash S2 Episode 23: Anything Goes

Hello and welcome to Commander Clash, a video series where several MTGGoldfish contributors battle in a four player Commander game for fun and bragging rights. This week we're doing away with any thematic restrictions to our deckbuilding and instead having another Anything Goes week, bringing whatever deck we feel like playing. Here's what we came up with:

Richard is playing my Budget Gahiji deck that I wrote about two years ago and I'm running my latest Budget Commander brew, Budget Animorphs, so if you're interested to learn more about those decks you can check out those articles. Will Richard's pillow fort protect him from our new years resolution to kill him first? Will Seth lose due to preemptively declaring victory? Will Tomer ever assemble Kaldra? Let's find out! But first, 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.

Post-Game Thoughts

For those of you that keep yelling at us for not killing Richard first, there you go: we really have been trying! Poor Richard is now playing pillow fort just so he doesn't get hated out immediately! Also Seth has been casting his commander more than any of us. We really are sticking to our new years resolutions!

Despite the lackluster showing, I love my Animorphs deck. I usually have no problems refilling my hand but this game I just whiffed on card draw until the very end and that left me with not a whole lot to do. I still had a lot of fun and relished performing little tricks like putting down Zoetic Cavern, Echo Tracer, and Deathmist Raptor, which all survived Seth's impending board wipe. It's not a powerful deck, but it sure is a cute deck!


Next Week: Gold Week!

You're going to be seeing a ton of gold cards next week! Each of us are building a deck where all the nonland cards must have more than one color in its color identity. That means no Chromatic Lantern, no Eternal Witness, and not even Alesha, Who Smiles at Death! Because our deck's casting costs will be so mana-intensive, however, our land cards will not count towards our usual ~$20 tix deck budgets. Expect to see some pricy lands like Scalding Tarn fetching Underground Sea!

As always, we love to hear from you guys! Tell us what you like to see, what you don't like, any ideas that we can put forward for future videos, or anything else you'd like to tell us! You can reach us in the comments section below or tweet me @BudgetCommander.
