Rebuilding Izzet: Brudiclad, King of Tokens

 

Welcome to another edition of the article series where I go over changes to my different EDH decks in detail (and where I trash them and rebuild them into something better).

There have been a number of my decks over the last few years that have been on the chopping block after disappointing performances and poor games, and many have been culled or changed. Much as I have done before, over the summer I rebuilt decks that just aren’t working; this may involve either changing some cards around deck to deck, changing who the general of the deck is, or completely overhauling the entire deck.

Now, with Guilds of Ravnica spoiled, I figured it was high time to go over my changes to various decks that I made over the summer. And this was a pretty radical change!

Today, we’ll be looking at my decklist for one of the most eclectic and crazy generals printed in some time: Commander 2019’s Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer, who has taken over the helm of our Izzet deck! Let’s take a look!

Let’s take a look!

Building Dakkon Blackblade, Part Two

 

Recently, I took a look at our Esper deck, which had been led by general Halfdane for the last while. After seeing the spoiler for the Blackblade from Dominaria, I was inspired to rebuild the deck into a Dakkon Blackblade list. I went over my initial thoughts here.

Well, I’ve finally built the deck, so it’s time for a much more in-depth look at the direction I took with it. Let’s go!
