Bennie Smith began playing Magic in 1994 and started writing about it shortly after. A Virginia State Champion, he enjoys few things better than winning at tournaments with home brews. Commander is one of those things. He loved the format so much he literally wrote the book on it: The Complete Commander.
The first Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty previews gave Bennie Smith a trio of inspirations. He suggests classic MTG cards to go with Hidetsugu, Devouring Chaos; Atsushi, the Blazing Sky; and Kaito Shizuki in Commander decks.
