Raggadragga is one of the most unique commanders to come out of the set so far. A four-mana 4/4, this Human Boar rewards you for playing creatures that have mana abilities. Cards like Llanowar Elves, Gilded Goose, and Birds of Paradise go from being chump blockers to sizeable threats, thanks to the +2/+2 ability. Plus, you don’t have to worry about losing out on the extra mana when attacking with them, since Raggadragga will untap them.

Raggadragga’s last ability is a bit harder to activate, but is reminiscent of a planeswalker’s ultimate due to how powerful it is. Each time you cast a spell, if it cost at least seven mana, you get to untap a creature and give it +7/+7 and trample until the end of turn. In a deck full of mana creatures, getting to seven mana is no problem, and dropping top-end threats along with the extra stats can close out games in a hurry.

So what do you think of Raggadragga? If you’re as interested in this Commander as we are, then don’t miss Bennie Smith’s Commander Deep Dive publishing on Monday to learn how to build a deck around it!  He’s so passionate about Commander, that he wrote the book on it:  The Complete Commander!
