On the one-year anniversary of starting Good Morning Magic, Gavin Verhey made today’s episode the first of a two-part series previewing information from the Strixhaven Commander decks.
The Commander decks are modeled and built around the theme of professors from the school of Strixhaven. Verhey showed the art for three of the professors and gave some hints to a few of the upcoming cards.
Willowdusk is the professor from Witherbloom, the green and black biologists from Strixhaven. Willowdusk is an unknown age and came to the school after guiding some lost students back to campus after getting stranded in a bog. She taught the students about herbs and was asked to stay on at the school as a professor after bringing the students back safely.
Osgir headlines the Commander deck for Lorehold, the red and white college focused on relics and treasures of the past. Osgir has mastered the art of duplicative restoration and can make sure he always gets what he wants from even the smallest historical artifacts. Verhey mentioned Osgir will be a great red and white commander for players looking for a general that isn’t based around attacking.
Zaffai is the face for the Prismari deck, the blue and red college. Zaffai flourished at an early age as a mage and musician and is now the conductor and maestro of the orchestra of the arcane. Their music fills the sky with explosions of elemental magic.
The other two professors will be shown off on Wednesday’s episode of Good Morning Magic. Next up, Verhey gives six hints of cards coming in the Commander decks.
- A mono-white card that creates Treasure
- Two cards that call back to the same mechanical reference to something in Future Sight
- A chef that makes Food tokens
- A card that gives you a bonus for casting a spell with mana value ten or greater
- A red creature with flash that casts a popular multiplayer spell upon entering the battlefield
- A card that creates face-down permanents that are not morphs
Lastly, here are three card names as teasers
- Inferno Project
- Bold Plagiarist
- Paradox Zone
