CCC: Strange Brew

This month I want to do something I haven’t done in awhile, talk about what decks I’m actually playing! I tend to brew most of my own lists since I do primarily play casual, so whether you’re looking for some cool ideas as to what decks are out there or you just want a peek into my deck boxes, I’m proud to present my current decks!

I have eight commander decks total at the moment, with seven of them being fun but nothing to really write home about. I have two more in the works that are a bit experimental, but I’ll drop those lists when they’re finished. For now if you’re interested in them, here’s those seven below.
  1. Ayara, First of Lochthwain - Zombie Tribal
  2. Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer - Morphs
  3. Belbe, Corrupted Observer - Colorless Ramp
  4. Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer - Token aggro
  5. Marwyn, the Nurturer - Elfball
  6. Lord Windgrace - Lands
  7. Oros the Avenger Mono-White Mardu

But the deck that I really want to highlight today, the reason I wanted to write this article, is because I finally completed a deck that’s been something of a pet project for me. Planeswalkers of all ages and demographics, let me introduce you to Turnless Obeka.

Now you might be asking yourself “Turnless Obeka? What the heck is that?” Well the entire deck is built around cards like Chronatog and Chronatog totem that allow us to skip our turn! The deck literally requires Unwinding Clock to function, as that card combined with our large amount of mana rocks ensures that we’ll be playing clean on our opponent’s turns. It’s also preferred, although not fully necessary, to have Vedalken Orrery or Leyline of Anticipation out as well. The deck has a lot of tutors to ensure we can get the pieces we need to start using our opponent’s turns as our own. The deck wins through cards like Fevered Visions, Bloodchief Ascension, and even Memnarch on rare occasions. It’s been an amazing deck to brew, and even more fun to play. If you’ve got a playgroup that needs a shakeup, I cannot recommend this strategy more highly!
