This is going to be the first part of a series showcasing my newest commander deck, Circu, Dimir Lobotomist. At first glance, Circu seems like a very bad commander. His third block of text is almost completely irrelevant, because commander is a singleton format. Every now and then, you will exile a Sol Ring, and then you’re the only player who can play Sol Rings, but the chance of that happening is very low.
The deck I made was very creative, the deck doesn’t play like a Dimir Mill deck, instead it plays like a blue/black Eldrazi draft deck from BFZ, which is one of my favorite decks to draft. Since Eldrazi are devoid, they will not trigger Circu. But, Circu is the best commander for the deck, because it’s the right colors and incidentally exiles a few cards for you to process with your Eldrazi.
The basic idea of the deck is to exile a few cards with Circu using blue goodstuff, such as Counterspells and card cycling spells such as Serum Visions and Preordain. There are also some other card exiling spells. After you exile a few cards, you can land your processors and process the cards for tons of value.
Next post, I’ll delve deeper into the specific cards in the deck. I hope you enjoyed this commander overview!
