Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and The Command Zone, check out three new rares from Commander Legends – Colfenor, the Last Yew, Sweet-Gum Recluse, and Slash the Ranks!
Colfenor, the Last Yew is the ultimate value-generating commander – allowing the player to continuously recycle cards as long as it’s on the battlefield. Decks that seek to build around Colfenor are likely to make use of sacrifice engines and other enter the battlefield effects the cause creatures you control to die.
Previewed alongside Colfenor, were two additional rares – Sweet-Gum Recluse, and Slash the Ranks.
While it’s unfortunate that it doesn’t destroy commanders, Slash the ranks is still a fantastic sweeper spell and it’s likely we’ll see this included in just about every Commander deck that seeks to play a slower game.
Sweet-Gum Recluse is just a sweet Magic card. The six mana 0/3 statline may seem underwhelming at first, but its ability and multiple keywords help make up for it and then some.
Enjoy holding up mana and surprising opponents with a giant spider and (more than likely) a big friend too thanks to Cascade!
So what do you think of these cards? Each one seems strong in their own way, and can easily be included in other decks. Let us know in the comments below what you’ll be doing with these three sweet rares!
