Kaldheim introduced many new legendary creatures for players to build Commander decks around. In today’s episode of Good Morning Magic, Gavin Verhey gives a deck tech on his version of Kardur, Doomscourge.

The uncommon legendary creature for Rakdos is effectively the goad Commander. By making your opponents attack each other, it allows you to build up, get in plenty of damage, and set up for an endgame against one weakened opponent.

The goal will be to play Kardur as many times as possible so that means packing plenty of reanimation spells to bring the Demon Berserker back from the graveyard. You’ll want to let Kardur die sometimes instead of returning it to the Command Zone.

Black also gets a small cut of the blink pie in Magic, so you can include cards similar to Supernatural Stamina like Malakir Rebirth, Abnormal Endurance, and Demonic Gifts.

Other permanent ways to get multiple uses of Kardur include Splinter Twin (get the trigger and sacrifice the copy), Sanctum of Eternity, and Conjurer’s Closet — the key combo card with Kardur.

While you send your opponents after each other, you can build a powerful advantage. The main way to do this is to gain the monarch token and hold it as you won’t be able to be attacked. Set up with engines or planeswalkers to get the most out of your time.

As you draw tons of cards, you can set up for the final opponent and blow them out with cards like In Garruk’s Wake and Sudden Spoiling for when they have to attack you.
