Commander Clash S8 E5: Companion Week w/ Joseph Schultz (EDHREC) | Keruga vs. Lurrus vs. Obosh vs. Zirda

Hey friends, welcome back to Commander Clash! Companions have taken most constructed formats by storm, which made us wonder the obvious question: how busted are companions in Commander? To answer this question, each of us have built a deck using a different companion in the companion zone! Since none of the Goldfish crew has any experience with companions in Commander, we enlisted the help of someone who already has such a deck: Joseph Schultz, editor and content contributor at EDHREC and host of EDHRECast! Here's what we've got:

  • Joey plays a slightly modified version of his personal Obosh companion deck, using the damage doubling to make his commander even more lethal, Greven, Predator Captain
  • Richard figures if Lurrus is banned in Vintage then it has to be pretty decent in Commander too, where it's supporting Karlov of the Ghost Council
  • Seth will never miss an opportunity to build a Panharmonicon deck or draw cards, so when he saw the ETB card draw trigger of Keruga he knew what he must do, building Yarok, the Desecrated
  • Tomer avoids building Zirda as infinite combo or Cycling, instead doing some new, innovative, never-before-seen strategy with Tajic, Legion's Edge

How fast will Joey kill his opponents? Will Richard make a good argument for Lurrus to be banned in Commander? Will Seth durdle and draw cards (of course he will)? Find out on this episode of Commander Clash! 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.
