Commander 2013 Decklists

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

We had mentioned here in our previous post to MTG Realm that the Commander 2013 previews may drag over to next week.  Well, we were wrong.  We now have the full list previewed over on the mothership today with set release notes and a range of related articles expected next week.  The Commander 2013 gallery is here, with the five decklists over here.

Before we get any further into Commander 2013, we have to yatter about what is likely on most Magic: the Gathering player's minds - the Theros Game Day event this weekend.  We'll be heading this weekend over to OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario (near Georgian College).  They will be having events on both Saturday and Sunday October 19th / 20th.

Registration opens at 11:30 AM with gaming underway at 12:30. Bring along your standard constructed deck and $6 and you will have the chance of winning a foil full art Nighthowler and an exclusive Game Day Champion playmat.  All participants will receive the full art Phalanx Leader promo card just for attending.

There will be of course the special side event called 'Face The Hydra' which you would likely have heard about already.  All day long at OMG! Games, you and your friends can play against the hydra deck with your standard deck and up to two hero cards earned in the pre-release and release weekend events. This is designed to be played with 1-3 players players and receive the next hero on the Path to Heros.  For players that don't have a standard deck the Theros Event deck, called 'Inspiring Heroics' will be available for only $24.99 - we'll see you out there!

Righto - back to Commander 2013!  All 51 new cards have now been revealed as well as the final decklists of each of the five Commander 2013 builds.  We will most definitely be talking more about EDH / Commander next week but for now, we are admiring the 25 to 30 awesome new card arts on the reprints.  Anywhoos - here's the quick run-down of all the new cards -
