Much debate has been waged over which of the 10 guild champions would actually reign supreme, emerging from the Dragon’s Maze the one true champion. The debate has drifted along the lines of guild loyalty, swaying back and forth, often based on “what have you done for me lately.” Some of our champions have power that is obvious and overflowing, while others have power that seems elusive and hidden. Do you have what it takes to bring your guild’s champion to the finish line? Then you have come to the right place!
LegitMTG.com is challenging our readers to build the best Commander decks around one of the 10 new guild champions. You have the chance to get your list published during our Dragon Maze Commander week and win a FREE FOIL copy of your guild champion. One lucky winner will also get $50 in store credit!
It’s simple to enter. Brew up a brand-new Commander (EDH) deck based around your guild champion. Submit your new brew to email@example.com by Friday, May 24, then proceed directly to Game Day and have a blast. Check back the following week when we reveal the winners.
When you submit your list, make sure to include your desired Commander judge. Each judge will determine the winner of their group, and those four winners will receive a free foil copy of their Commander and have their lists featured on LegitMTG.com and Legitbits. Those winners will then be submitted to the entire judging panel to determine who will be the Maze Champion and the winner of $50 in Legit MTG store credit.
All submissions will be judged by one of our four judges based on their individual Commander philosophies:
Jonathan Medina (Playing to win): Can your deck crush the souls of your opponents and make them wish they had never taken up cards against you? Followers of the Medina path will use destructive force, streamlined innovation, and cunning without apology or fear of group retaliation. All missiles from the group might be flying at them but Medinaities don’t plan on running and hiding. It is a full frontal assault.
Scotty Mac (Playing with synergy): Anyone can pick up a hammer and smash through a door, but are you talented enough to use your intelligence and charm to coax your prey into inviting you in? Followers of the Mac would rather use honey to seduce their victims into complacency. They often appear nonthreatening while slowly building resources, causing group members to overlook and underestimate them. Just when you think you have things locked up, the engine comes online and the Mac attacks.
Heather Meek (Playing for fun): Angels have been mislabeled as stoic creatures since the dawn of Alpha but the true heart of an Angel is about fun. If it is not fun or prone to cause calamitous situations, then Angels will be bored quickly. That’s why Angel followers love themes and inventive collaborations. Maybe the Angels deck won’t smash face or trick opponents into forfeiting their souls, but every person who plays against an Angel brew is left dripping with envy, wishing they knew how to have actual fun like that.
Cassidy McAuliffe (Putting it all together): You might blind an Angel with excitement, Medina with brute force, or charm the socks of the Mac, but no one will escape the Cassidy Factor if their brew can’t hold its own. Our resident Commander expert is the end all be all of our brew extravaganza and will determine if your crafty theme, diabolical plan, or brute initiative is actually playable at EDH tables across the nation.
