Today, I’m going to go over the five new cards from Commander 2016 that I think are the best.
In number five, we have Grip of Phyresis! It’s a great instant that can be used to steal equipment. There are so many powerful swords floating around, and keep in mind that you gain control of it forever! There is never a shortage of targets, because there’s always a few Lightning Greaves floating around. The fact that it’s instant speed is just gravy on top.
At number four, we have Treacherous Terrain! In commander, Treacherous Terrain can frequently do upwards of ten damage, and even kill most of the dirty green players out there that like to cheat out lands.
At number three, we have Sylvan Reclamation. There’s not much to say. It’s sure to be a staple for years to come. A double naturalize that exiles with the flexibility of fetching up a basic is pretty amazing in any Selesnya deck.
At number two, we have Magus of the Will! Magus of the Will is a cheap version of Yawgmoth’s Will, and it slots into any black deck that wants to play around with the graveyard. Yawgmoth’s Will is so powerful, even a Yawgmoth’s Will on a stick that’s a little bit slower is still amazing.
At number one, we have Deepglow Skate! It’s just super powerful, even without blinking effects that are so plentiful in blue. It’s perfect in any deck that wants to play around with counters.
