Commander Clash S5 E11: Ravnica Guilds!! (Augustin vs. Jarad vs. Tibor & Lumia vs. Trostani)

Welcome back to Commander Clash! To celebrate the release of the latest set, Guilds of Ravnica, we're representing our favorite guild by building a deck around a legendary guild member! Here's what we picked:

  • Richard picks Selesnya, but instead of a typical Tokens deck he's brewed a crazy Wurm Tribal deck supported by Trostani, Selesnya's Voice
  • Seth defies expectations by not picking a durdly Blue guild but instead picks Golgari, turning the graveyard into a resource with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord
  • Tomer picks the best guild, Izzet, and shows what can be done with an often overlooked Izzet commander, Tibor and Lumia
  • Vincent picks Azorius, writing down laws to prevent everyone from having fun and passing them through the system with Grand Arbiter Augustin IV

Can the lesser guilds even put up a sporting fight against the superior Izzet guild? Let's find out! 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

I haven't been doing a good job this season bringing decks of a correct power level. Either they're too janky, like my Kamigawa-flavored brews, or they're too strong, like my Garna, the Bloodflame deck that ran the easy Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts combo, and now this Tibor and Lumia Combo deck.

I think the Firemind's Foresight combo was thematic and appropriate, even if it's quite strong and hard to disrupt. I don't regret running that, but I do regret that I stumbled into the combo so quickly. The Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo was definitely pushing it too far. I've never ran that combo before and was already running Isochron Scepter in the deck since I have so many cheap instants to imprint, so I figured why not toss in Reversal and see what happens. Turns out it's just too easy to win from there. Lesson learned. I'm sorry I had to learn this in Commander Clash though, since we only have a few hours to record some entertaining games for you all and it sucks when those games end up being lopsided solitaire because I can't figure out how my cards work.


Next Week: Viewer Submitted Decks!

Last week, we asked you to submit decks that you want to see us play in a future Commander Clash episode. Next week you get to see which decks we picked! I was sick during the recording so Tom took my place, which means I'm in the unusual position of eagerly waiting to see how the game went!
