Commander Clash S2 Episode 3: Time Spiral


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. For this week, we've all picked a commander from the Time Spiral set to build a deck around. Here's what we've got:

There's some big twists in this video that I can't wait for you to see! 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.

Post-Game Thoughts

That was a rollercoaster of a game! Fast-paced with lots of twist and turns; certainly one of the best clashes so far! 

My deck exceeded all expectations. I didn't realize it at first, but that opening hand was nuts, giving my opponents very little time to respond to my board. It played very similar to a deck I've made before, Budget PurphorosUnlike that deck, however, burning out your opponents is just one of many tricks Norin the Wary can pull. Another devious strategy involved Confusion in the Ranks: each time Norin re-enters the battlefield, I would get to trade him for one of my opponent's creatures, and whenever someone attacked or cast a spell, Norin would exile himself again and re-enter on my side once more, letting me swap him for something else again! I love those neat tricks.

Submit Your Decks!

One of the best received episodes was when we played viewer-submitted decks. It was a ton of fun for us and the feedback was great, so we're doing it again. 

If you'd like one of us to pilot your deck in the upcoming Commander Clash episode, post a link to the deck list in the comments section below or in the YouTube comments. We're mainly looking for two things in the decks:

  • Entertaining to watch! An all-in turn three combo deck that wins the game in two minutes could be sweet to play, but would make for a poor episode to watch. Similarly, hardcore Stax where nobody is allowed to cast spells for two hours is not fun for the audience. We're okay with combo win conditions and some resource denial in decks, but just keep in mind that we're going to pick decks that we feel will make for an entertaining viewing experience.
  • Around $20 Online. This is a very loose rule so don't worry too much about getting just under $20 -- and feel free to make the deck even cheaper than that! It's fine to include expensive cards if they are crucial for the deck to function, but if a card like Grim Tutor can be replaced by Diabolic Tutor easily enough, then the less expensive option should be picked.

The deadline for viewer-submitted decks is August 31. Show us what you've got!
