Capitalizing and building upon the momentum they created during the promotion of Spring 2019’s War of the Spark expansion, the Throne of Eldraine trailer is a full on cinematic. We don’t get to see much of the world itself, as we spend most of our time in a kitchen. However, we do get to see knights, fall in love with gingerbread people, and witness the return of a long-missing fan-favorite Planeswalker: Garruk Wildspeaker.
But what about the cards, Alex? What cards should I pick up for my decks? Well, as anyone can tell you, I know squat about constructed. Whether or not a card is good in Standard or Modern, I probably can’t really say. What I can say, however, is how excited I am to play so many of the cards we saw yesterday in my Commander (EDH) decks! From Adventures to Oko, the planeswalker with a BOD, this set is only just starting to be revealed and it’s already filled to the brim with goodies.
Watch as I break down all the relevant Throne of Eldraine Commander cards that were revealed yesterday. I break down some of the new legendary creatures and talk about the possible decks you might craft with them. If you’re already brewing like I am, making a shopping list of all the cards you’ll need to pick up once this Magic set releases in a few short weeks, you don’t want to miss this — else you might get left behind in the speculator stew pot!
