What’s more, most of these commander decks contain a vast array of cards that have respectable financial value, or just are commander staples which makes upgrading the decks or building new commander decks using the pieces of these an acceptable and easy path for the player. Best of all, while power levels between the decks do vary, I maintain that there is no wrong answer when it comes to these commander precons. WHich one should I buy is a question i answer often with “Which one do you like the look and feel of? You can’t go wrong.” And I want to repeat that: You can’t go wrong. But still I am asked which are the best of the best, and so presented here are the top 5 commander decks you can purchase, based on power right out of the box. Note, these top 5 are all selling for above MSRP, some by a little, one by a lot, and I still encourage you to scour your local game stores and even online sellers to find those sweet deals of commander decks at 29 even 24.99 each, an amazing value every one of them. And with the Commander’s Anthology coming out in just a week, an expensive product with 4 of the classic commander decks in it plus a few other goodies, I thought I’d give a copy away to a subscriber. So if you’d like a free, brand new copy of the commander’s anthology all you have to do is be subscribed to this channel for a chance to win!

I wanted to buy a Commander Pre-con that was White Blue Black. Four of the mentioned decks include those colors.

I have friends that straight up refuse to play against my Oloro Deck. Shame case it' my favourite commander deck I've put together, Maybe it has something to do with the Exquisite blood I've put into the deck... Also didn't know Plunder the graves was that good. Got it for Christmas last year and haven't really done anything with it.

Subjective Reality any good?

IMO, it's fun to play. If your goal is to win most games probably the best is nature's venegance. If your goal is just to enjoy the game and play some tricks on the others it's good. I'm not say it can win a game. But the easier to play (that wins the game) is the nature's one since it has a more straightforward strategy.

I have the Draconic Domination 2017 deck, and I find that it is much better if you swap Scion of the Ur Dragon in as the commander

Nothing in magic is good value. This is a real world game with microtransactions. The bigger your bank account the better your chances are.

I would like to say that after prof said Command Beacon was in Plunder the Graves I immediately grabbed all of my commander decks and leafed thru them, check my sell histories and then even my Pucatrade ledger. Silly professor, Command beacon is in Swell the Host not Plunder the Graves.

Breya deck is $150 on amazon now. I know this because I bought the Breya deck when they came out, put it to the side and never did anything with it, stumbled upon it a couple weeks ago and since it was un opened and pristine checked the value, nice return.
Ali Sutherland (7 months ago)

Manuel Aguilar Tirado (7 months ago)
I'm so happy of getting invent superiority just recently for less than msrp (31.19), well the price was like that because I was buying another pr econ but still, really happy with that one and I'm in love with how well constructed the deck is for being an out of the shelf product.

Hey proff? Which link do I click to sign up for the giveaway?
Roomy (9 months ago)
0:45 You're totally right. I had an idea to help out any new players to commander since the last mono-colored decks have become stupid expensive. Those planeswalker commander decks were the most important ones in getting a sizable collection of singles enough that I could finally go off the path and actually build new commander decks with new ideas. Black, White, and Green of those ones are practically must-buys not to play those specific decks, but because they contain SO many staples you can use. Imo they should do that again with lots of staples and value.
Joshua Fischer (8 months ago)
I believe they are with commander 2018
Joshua Fischer (9 months ago)
the main reason why breed lethality is $79.99 which is fine reason to rate the deck as low as you are is because Atraxa ALONE is at least when I last checked on retail was at least $68.00 and since then has probably skyrocketed in value strictly because of all of the absurd combinations you can do with her and I do not think I was affected by the price raise as I pre ordered all five commander 2016 decks from a retailer and put a $20.00 down payment on the box which wound only costing me $175.00 instead of possibly close to $300.00 so I think I lucked out and seized my moment at the right time
Dakota Bice (9 months ago)
Hey so I just wanted to say thank you for making videos like this one as they’ve helped me as a new player on a budget get good decks at nice prices and enjoy this game I’ve fallen in love with so thanks a lot

power gungry (56 usd) now can be found at a lower price than entropic uprising(125 usd), breed lethality (200 usd), plunder the graves(85 usd), eternal bargain (85 usd)and invent superiority (150). the japanese version on the decks can be found for 50 buck tho. (except for breed lethality, it's 80 usd for the japanese version)

Is it ok to use EDH decks against standard for just casual format? are there any cards i should remove from my edh deck? and is using 100 cards vs 60 cards break some rules or something? sorry new player here.
To Release is To Resolve (9 months ago)
Make a new deck with different cards. EDH only allows 1 of each card so the consistency is there. A standard deck can have up to four copies.
arkwelded (1 year ago)
the mana bases for all the precons are horrid, but ok if you play them against each pther they are not bad
