As with most card games, only a handful tend to dominate the field. For this tournament we will be changing that up with, you guessed it! Garbage Commanders!

For this tourney you will have to choose from a list of pre-selected commanders and build a deck around them using the otherwise ignored and unloved card as the basis for your deck. Each Purity Combination will have a pre-designated command zone. GET YER DECKS READY!

Note: Listed cards are the PERMITTED Commanders with the exception being CoV who also has a small ban list.

Warpath Commanders

Shamba, The Ferocious
Caretaker of the Swarm

You've underestimated Ju-Lin. This is my time to shine.

Hail Aberion! Also the WP command selection seems disproportionately strong to me. I mean searcher is actually playable especially because you can combo her with untapped wilderness, pack leader can be a very strong and viable commander, and BLBP is a staple commander in a lot of wp ramp decks. Maybe at least replace pack leader with mammoth?

I have heard you nuggets and I quite agree.

Pack leader has now been replaced with Shamba and Survivor has been replaced with kills by leaping. Thank you to Ori for showing me how good that deck would have been! We can't have any GOOD commanders here!

:D

(Also this tourney is completely ad-lib so please be sure to check back regularly for the updated list. I will lock the list 96 hours prior to the tournament to leave time for everyone to adjust accordingly. Additionally, I will only proceed with the tournament if we have a minimum of 8 participants)

I'd say that a Liand/Radiarah deck might be a strong combo to keep an eye on ;) other than that I wish to see some players streaming the tournament, love this concept.

Sadly due to a lack of interest this particular tournament will be postponed until either I have another free weekend OR (preferably) if the community management staff wants to take over and admin + set for a later date.

I would have done it--and rocked a Star Trek deck, no doubt--but my weekend has been incredibly busy and decidedly un-free.

Same, my work schedule sucked so I haven't even been around to advertise like I normally do :/

The tourney isn't cancelled but I need to work with some peeps to make it happen. Don't have the time to solo plan like I once did.
