Commander Clash S5 E24: Holiday Gift Exchange! (Gitrog Monster vs. Niv-Mizzet vs. Sharuum vs. Ludevic & Sidar)


Welcome back to Commander Clash! With the holiday season upon us, we decided to take part in the festivities by doing a Holiday Gift Exchange! Each of us gifted a deck to someone else in the group to play. Here's what we opened:

  • Richard crashes through the competition with a Tribal Juggernaut deck gifted by Seth and led by Sharuum the Hegemon
  • Seth takes his Gield of Guin shenanigans to the next level with a Strip Mine Tribal deck gifted by Richard and led by The Gitrog Monster
  • Tomer draws all the cards, running a Card Draw Tribal deck gifted by Vincent and led by Niv-Mizzet, Parun
  • Vince is determined not to get hated out for once with a Political Tokens deck gifted by Tomer and led by partners Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist and Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Who got the best present this year? 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

The decks were sweet this week! I think this shows (again) just how strong Niv-Mizzet, Parun and The Gitrog Monster are; you give those decks an inch and they'll just go off. I think Vince nailed my playstyle and I had a blast drawing cards!

 

Next Week's Season Finale: Vince Week!

Season 5 is coming to an end, and with it comes a changing of the main crew. Vince will be stepping out for next season, but I'm sure he will pop in now and then as a guest spot. The season finale will give him a proper sendoff with Vince Week, where all of us build a deck we think best captures the essence of Vince! Any guesses on what we're going to build?

Also we're happy to announce a special bonus episode to tide you all over until the next season: we'll be doing Commander Clash Live Stream on January 26th! You can watch our live game from any POV on Twitch; feel free to yell at me while I punt in real time or go watch someone else and yell at them instead! The exact time of the stream will be announced closer to the date, so follow us on Twitter @MTGGoldfish to keep updated!
