Commander 2017

Each year, Wizards creates a set of preconstructed Commander decks. In years past, five decks each year highlighted color identities like mono-colored or four-colored.

This year, only four decks are offered, because a four-player game is typically the ideal Commander pod. The decks embrace tribal tech, which is undoubtedly one of the most-savored types of Commander build. Furthermore, the inclusion of cats as a highlighted tribe is surely a nod to the reality that cats are not just popular on the Internet - they are popular everywhere.

Many customers rebuild the decks after they get this product; I strongly suggest also playing some games with these builds (I don't care if you upgrade the lands). Just in case you need them, original deck lists are below.
