Welcome to part 2 of our Kaladesh Commander Top 10 countdown! If you missed last week’s article here it is! We have five cards left. Let’s see what we have left!
5. Combustible Gearhulk
What decks does this fit in? – All red decks?
Here is the first of our new Titans. And Titans they are. Wizards has been doing a great job of building up red’s chunk of the color pie, and Combustible Gearhulk is leading the charge. Card draw, even if it’s conditional, is amazing. This card is fun and unique. It’s a great design for EDH.
4. Noxious Gearhulk
What decks does this fit in? – All black decks?
This thing has a lot going on. Life gain, removal and evasion on a well costed body. This is a creature that is begging to be returned from the graveyard into play repeatedly. This card is a BEAST.
3. Chandra, Torch of Defiance
What decks does this fit in? – Mono-red decks.
Whoa. This card is a house. Four abilities, each seemingly better than the last.The two +1’s abilities are brutal. Kaladesh has brought a lot of big things to red EDH, even outside this list (look at Madcap Experiment for another example). This is the best Chandra yet. I’m feeling pretty defiant already.
2. Torrential Gearhulk
What decks does this fit in? – Spell based blue decks.
MEGA SNAPCASTER MAGE. I love this card. A spell slinging blue mage uses one of their best spells to get value. Pay six mana to flash in Mega Snapcaster Mage and do it all over again. This is the best Gearhulk for Commander.
Here come’s number one. Any guesses on what it is?
1. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter
What decks does this fit in? – None. She commands her own.
Most sets give us a build around Commander for all of us to drool over. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter demands to be built around. Kaladesh is filled with a lot of utility cards. Rashmi is very unique in Simic colors. And the art! This will look absolutely beautiful in foil.
There is the Kaladesh Commander Top 10! Do you agree with all my choices? Any cards I rated to high or to low?
That’s for stopping by The MTG Corner!
