This week’s Story Circles are interesting things. We began with the intention of creating two decks with complementary themes…sort of. We ended up making two decks that highlight how the different colors work with similar themes – in this case, that of token creation. The Omnath deck has plenty of Landfall and Elemental synergy alongside a handful of ways to sacrifice our Elementals to go with the commander’s bolting ability. This episode just went up and I’ve already heard multiple people claim that they’re going to build a version of this deck!
Endrek Sahr, on the other hand, creates a constant stream of smaller Thrull tokens. To manage his thrull amount limitation, we have plenty of sacrifice outlets along with plenty of ways to create new ones when we’ve depleted them. This deck, while possibly less overtly powerful than Omnath, has plenty of small synergies that are intriguing.
Also, discerning listeners will notice that the lifegain in both decks came from the same person. The Story Circles not only create decks, it gives a fascinating insight into how each person builds decks. Pretty cool huh?
Commander: Omnath, Locus of Rage
Commander: Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder
