Intros: (No “favorite commanders segment”)
Free-for-all Roundtable: “Is There Still a ‘Worst Color’ In Commander?”
Color Strategies: Orzhov. What’s the most effective/fun/etc. strategy in these colors? For Orzhov in particular, do you sac creatures or sap life totals? A little of both?
- Combo (Teysa, Orzhov Scion)
- Life gain/sap (Obzidat, Ghost Council, Ghost Council of Orzhova, Karlov of the Ghost Council)
- Recursion (Athreos, God of Passage)
- Tribal Cleric (Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim)
