    I am liking all of these potential commanders so far. Brago is easily meant for a competitive build, but these other two seem really fun.

  • Gidamerth

    Dear me, hello new Grixis commander!

  • Fin

    me likey

  • Gob

    She looks like Bjork

  • Adam Watson

    im imagining having this and Mikaues the unhallowed on the field… thats some fun right there. Conspiracy has my mind brewing up edh decks.

  • Chi Sarades

    this is so cool yay

  • EsperLeague

    Something for Edh?

  • wombat604

    It’s almost like undying, but better! And all your creatures have it!!

  • ultramegalord

    ubr undying commander deck….. or atleast until planar cleansing anyway

  • Caligula

    Does this combo with Grave Betrayal?

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    Wizards of the Coast, giving me cards I didn’t realize I wanted until I finally see.

  • Zombie

    Oh, hello new auto-include in every Thraximundar deck ever.

  • whatever

    combos with modular, devour, bloodthirst, undying, evolve, graft, unleash, Grave Betrayal, Mikaeus the Unhallowed.
    And with Sneak attack, Mark of Mutiny,.. (I’ll edit this if i find more)
    She will be a good commander :D

    • Cicsero

      Infect seems pretty disgusting also.

      • Shirei, who is very pissed

        Infect is really one of her few weaknesses, as it will remove the counters.

    • PersonWhoHappensToBeCommenting

      Wouldn’t Mikaeus be weaker? (If I recall correctly he gives all your creatures undying) because undying would be almost useless? Persist however sounds great.

      • eltratzo

        what I think he thought of is that your creatures will come back anyway; either because of her or because of undying. regrettably she is human or it would be even more disgusting.

        • PersonWhoapppensToBeCommenting

          Oops, I forgot that she brought them back if they had +1/+1 counters. I was thinking about how undying wouldn’t save them. But yeah, that could be amazing.

    Would Grave Betrayal work like I think it would? (At least for the first time.)

    • Somnom


  • David Fitzsimmons

    does her ability herself if she dies?

    • YouGotFranked

      If she have a +1+/1 counter on herself, yes i believe she comes back.

  • tyke5140

    Biggest selling point of dethrone for me: It adds the +1/+1 counter when attacks are declared rather when damage is dealt. This set is going to be so amazing.

  • This is seriously just WOTC way to print two commander sets in a row.

    • David Fitzsimmons

      And let’s not forget that their fall side products are now going to be Commander related since last year, replacing the Premium Deck series.

      • I think that next commander set we will have mtg designers as the commanders. Like, vanity cards.

        • Antares

          Unless they printed ALL THE AMAZING staples, reprints, and alternate commanders, I would NEVER touch that. XD
          So I really hope that they don’t. Ever. At all.

  • MrAptronym

    I am so excited to use her as a commander

  • Sup Bro

    Is it now possible to play a merchesa pod deck? You know with undying it would be just about the same thing as meliria pod but with cool undying stuff like geralfs messenger

  • ibecker2820

    her as your commander + grave pact and grave betrayal = no one wants to play EDH with you

  • Violator

    She looks totally like Christina Bella lol (especially on that art from Power Plat that WOTC uses for promotion and ads.)
