Commander Clash S6 E16: Peasant Commander! (Adeliz vs. Iwamori vs. Raff vs. Zada)

Welcome back to Commander Clash! This week we're giving up rares and mythics to play some Peasant Commander! All the cards in our deck must have had a printing at common or uncommon rarity. Here's what we've got:

It was a poor showing of Zada. I went too all-in and got punished by the perfect answer. I think if we didn't run into a turn 2 Sphere the game would've been very different.

After this game I'd make some changes to the deck: I'd cut all the "draw a card at the beginning of next turn's upkeep," like Balduvian Rage. The reason is because the turn I go off is the turn I want to win on, and these cards only help me win on future turns. I would replace these cards with artifact hate, so Vandalblast and By Force to go alongside Mog Salvage. We already have protection against countermagic with Red Elemental Blast / Pyroblast / Price of Glory, and there's only so much interaction we can run before our combo potential starts getting too watered down. Obviously if we added rares then I'd toss in stuff like Wheel of Fortune and Gamble but with the Peasant restriction, just 1-2 card changes would be all I'd want to do.
