Today marks the end of the M20 Pre Pre-Release, and the start of the core release for MTG's next phase of standard. What we have seen was the return of the Leyline's which was much needed.
Even with the reprints there have been plethora of new commanders released. While I am partial to the new Golos, Tireless Pilgrim land commander, we have seen an amazing version of Sephara, Sky's Blade from Brian at Tolarian Community College as the first known build online.
As seen in the video the Professor shows an awesome way to pilot one of the new hot commanders through token generation which is something that I considered myself. I am however more partial to more janky commanders like Golos.
I personally am partial to the new Artifact land Commander "Golos, Tireless Pilgrim". Mostly because he seems to be broken. when running crucible of worlds and other land recurring spells Golos makes playing against the golden rule fun with the added artifact flavor. Nothing beats a five colour sad robot. This makes Maze's End deck techs so much better and shenanigans like door to nothingness or legacy weapon.
There is so much more to look forward to in M20. Having competed in the M20 Pre-Release on arena I determined that Vampires and Dino's are devastating, even as far as shutting down a Teferi deck with dinos.
Moving on to the big update, with my deployments this year I can say with certainty that I will be both uploading less frequently, and will be hitting up ports in Vietnam, China, Japan, Hawaii, Seattle and San Francisco for sure. I will let my fans know my location after I have arrived, and we can get together for Meet and Greets. should there be people there.
So with this being said I am excited for everything that comes from this weekends Pre-Release. So remember, support your Local LGS, I support mine at www.everythinggames.ca as you can't play MTG at Wal-Mart.
