Cure for the Common Game - Core 2020 Edition


Hello! I'm Brian Canada, the insane guy over at Cure for the Common Game, whose mission is to build a Commander deck with every legendary creature ever printed. These decks are built individually and never taken apart.

Magic's latest Core Set has given us a whopping twelve legendary creatures, adding a dozen new options for commanders, and in today's listing we will review the twelve decks that I have made from them. Core 2020 is the most legendary-prolific Core Set that Wizards has ever given us. Historically speaking this is awesome, it took until Tenth Edition to even get legendary creatures into the Core Set, and most of the time it was just one per color or theme; never before have we had twelve. This illustrates the importance that Wizards of the Coast has put on our format and I love it! Anyway, on with the decks. As usual, I try to do something different or unique with each of them.

Deck #441 - Sephara, Sky's Blade

We start off with a giant flying Angel that is easier to cast if we have a bunch of small flyers.

Deck #442 - Atemsis, All Seeing

I love how wacky the alternate win condition is! I leaned into it pretty heavily.

Deck #443 - Yarok, the Desecrated

Hot take: I think Yarok in the command zone is actually better than Panharmonicon!

Deck #444 - Kethis, the Hidden Hand

Kethis just likes to surround himself with all the legends.

Deck #445 - Golos, Tireless Pilgrim

I know I said that I try to do different themes with my decks, but this one was too good to pass up.

Deck #446 - Vilis, Broker of Blood

Vilis made me realize how busted some of the cards we normally use really are.

Deck #447 - Drakuseth, Maw of Flames

Burn, baby, burn! While not quite the disco inferno, Drakuseth brings burn decks a fighting chance.

Deck #448 - Kykar, Winds Fury

A little combo, a little tribal, but definitely all weird. I think I will call him "Goose."

Deck #449 - Gargos, Vicious Watcher

"The bro-est bro to ever bro." I love me some tribal decks of course, and tribal Hydras are no different.

Deck #450 - Omnath, Locus of the Roil

This one was hard, but finding the balance of Landfall and tribal synergies did in fact prove to be rewarding.

Deck #451 - Rienne, Angel of Rebirth

I like gold. Believe it or not, this is not a tribal Angel deck. All multicolor, all the time.

Deck #452 - Kaalia, Zenith Seeker

How weird is this?

No Angels.

No Dragons.

No Demons.

Yeah, sounds pretty different, but I think it turned out well.

That is it for this installment! I still have a couple of more decks to build for the legends of Modern Horizons and then we will have our next edition. Thank you all for reading/watching, and remember, never keep a one-land hand!
