Grab your dice and your adventuring kit, because it's time for the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms! The latest set for Magic: The Gathering is all about Dungeons & Dragons, and the new Commander decks are positively oozing flavor with the new cards that represent characters, items, and spells from the Forgotten Realms. This week, you will be assisting an adventuring band by looking at each hero's preconstructed Commander deck and helping them "level up" with a few new cards!

There are heroes that work tirelessly to perfect their skills in combat, but you are not one of them. As a warlock, you wanted to obtain power directly from one of the magical forces in the Forgotten Realms. Unlike your companions, you wait until everyone else has expended their resources before you commit to anything so that you can always come out a victor. If you prefer to keep control over the flow of the game and strike only when victory is assured, then this is the deck for you.

Playing as a warlock is all about having access to as many resources as possible so that you always have an answer. Prosper, Tome-Bound is a Pact of the Tome warlock that exemplifies this by giving you additional spells to cast each turn and rewarding you when you're casting spells from exile. Exiling cards from the top of the library and being able to cast them from exile is a red mechanic that has been on plenty of cards before, but Prosper's particular version of the ability is one of the strongest versions.

Prosper, Tome-Bound allows you to play the cards you exile until the end of your next turn, so if you exile a land during the end step, you can use that as your land drop during your next turn. Also, any card that can be cast at instant speed that he exiles can be cast at any point until the end of your next turn after he exiled it, so you can keep up an instant-speed Doom Blade as a rattlesnake to keep opponents from committing to the board. Prosper's secondary ability that creates a Treasure token whenever you play a card from exile will give additional value, so you can set up a game plan that continually exiles cards and plays cards until you have enough Treasure tokens to win the game!

Game Plan

In recent sets, Treasure tokens have become one of the most powerful tokens you can create. Mana acceleration is a huge advantage, but there are also cards like Revel in Riches that can help you win the game just by keeping a certain number of Treasures on board. A majority of your deck will want to be focused on getting cards into exile that you can play later for greater effect. While a number of red cards will help exile cards off the top of your deck, there are also a few key black creatures that can help steal cards from our opponents' decks to play from exile too!

Since the deck's color identity is black-red, you can play a healthy amount of removal or rattlesnake cards to keep your opponent off tempo while you find your win conditions. Your deck should be playing cards that can repeatedly let you play cards from exile so that the rest of the spells in your deck can be proactive against the opponents. Since this deck's win conditions require you to build up in either Treasure tokens or accessible mana, you need to be able to keep your opponents in control until you can finish the game.

Most of the preconstructed Commander decks are built to be able to play cards on turns four through six and then finish the game with one or more explosive high mana value cards. Planar Portal is no exception, and although the deck is great at giving you cards to play at any stage of the game, high mana value cards are still difficult to play in decks that can't ramp hard in the first few turns of the game.

To help with mana problems, this deck does come with a number of artifacts that can tap for mana like Mind Stone, Talisman of Indulgence, and Rakdos Signet. These are good cards to have, even if you end up cutting them from this deck. There are a few good creatures in this deck like Loyal Apprentice, but the creature base has an identity problem between playing big, game-ending creatures like Etali, Primal Storm and creatures that need a lot of setup like Piper of the Swarm.

The best reprints in this preconstructed deck, however, are the instants and sorceries. Vandalblast is one of the best artifact removal spells in Commander, and can be played on turn one to destroy a Sol Ring or later in the game to wipe the board of every artifact your opponents control. Disrupt Decorum is another excellent sorcery that goads all opposing creatures, so you can take a turn off of worrying about being attacked while your opponents all hit each other. For instants, you have a number of satisfying removal spells including Bedevil, which works to remove annoying planeswalkers.

The new cards found in Planar Portal are incredible. Grim Hireling is a great value creature that helps you create Treasures whenever you deal combat damage to a player and can also use those Treasures to take out problematic creatures. One of the best cards in all of the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Commander decks is Hellish Rebuke, an instant that forces your opponents to sacrifice any permanents that do damage to you this turn and lose 2 life. While this card's most obvious uses are to turn an all-out attack from an opponent into a board wipe and possibly a game loss, you can also use this card to stop damage combos like Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind plus Curiosity, or persistent enchantments like Underworld Dreams.

The alternative commander for the Planar Portal deck is Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant, a beholder found in the 5th edition D&D adventure Out of the Abyss. Karazikar is all about causing chaos for your opponents by rewarding you and other players for attacking anyone but you. If that isn't enough incentive to get your opponents swinging out at each other, Karazikar also lets you goad your opponents' creatures to force them into those attacks! While Karazikar may not be a perfect fit for your Prosper, Tome-Bound deck, don't be surprised to see them popping up at tables to cause problems for playgroups!

After looking at the preconstructed deck list and consulting your Patron, you can start making some changes to the list to take it to the next level!

Lands

Black-red has very few ramp spells to help keep your deck on curve, so you need to guarantee that the lands you are playing are offering the most efficiency possible. For this list, the first step is to take out any tap lands and replace them with lands that can generate mana as soon as they are played.

Dragonskull Summit and Blightstep Pathway immediately offer red or black mana, while Rakdos Carnarium and Spinerock Knoll are huge targets for land removal that can set you back. Although Temple of Malice comes into play tapped like Zhalfirin Void, the upside of scry 1 in a deck that cares about what card is on the top of the deck at the end of a turn is worth it. The final replacement is War Room, which is a great land that can help give card draw later in the game, and if you play enough spot removal, you won't have to worry about sacrificing a land like Underdark Rift to remove a card from the board.

Creatures

As I mentioned earlier, a lot of the creature cards in the preconstructed decklist don't fit with the game plan, so most of the stock creatures will be replaced with cards that either help you keep playable cards in exile or create and use your wealth of Treasure tokens.

The upgrades in the creature slot are designed to focus our strategy around exiling and playing cards from the library, while utilizing the Treasure tokens you will be creating throughout the game.

Murderous Rider is a removal spell that you cast as an Adventure which will then exile and then let you cast the creature side (which will trigger Prosper, Tome-Bound ability). Nadier's Nightblade is a second version of Marionette Master, so now you will have two cards that can drain your opponents' life totals whenever you sacrifice a Treasure token.

To use those Treasure tokens, Forsworn Paladin and Kalain, Reclusive Painter have been added to the deck to give additional buffs to your creatures when you spend Treasure tokens. Since Marionette Master deals damage based on their power, you can use Forsworn Paladin's ability to buff Marionette Master and deal even more damage.

The final creature upgrade is Dream Devourer, a card that has one of the highest power ceilings in the deck. Dream Devourer allows you to foretell any nonland cards in your hand. By paying two mana, you can exile any cards from your hand which you can then cast as long as they are exiled. This means that any card in your hand can now trigger Prosper, Tome-Bound ability, and that could lead to four or more Treasure tokens generated in a single turn!

Noncreature Permanents

The preconstructed deck list already contains a lot of mana-generating artifacts, so the upgrades to noncreature permanents will bring in a few extra interesting ramp artifacts and our strongest win condition.

Keeping Prosper, Tome-Bound on board is imperative for our strategy, so we're bringing in Swiftfoot Boots to offer some protection in the form of hexproof. Sol Talisman and Mox Tantalite are two-mana artifacts that have not seen much play in Commander due to the tight requirement with how they need to be cast. However, since your deck gets additional value when you cast cards from exile, having artifacts that are cast from exile after being suspended allows you to have a lot of mana available during the turns after Prosper has been played.

The most important new card is Revel in Riches. Revel in Riches will allow you to win the game at the beginning of your turn if you control ten or more Treasures. As the upgrades to your deck are focused on helping empower Prosper, Tome-Bound, this should mean that you have plenty of turns where you are creating three to five Treasure tokens, which is halfway to victory with Revel in Riches. This card will almost always be hated off the board as soon as you play it, but if you can keep it hidden until your opponents have expended all their resources, you should be able to win a lot of your games.

Instants and Sorceries

In the other areas of this deck, the upgrades have focused on the overall game plan at the expense of being able to defend yourself against an opponent's attacks. With that in mind, these new instants and sorceries should help deal with your opponents' cards by either destroying everything on board or removing the key pieces.

Blasphemous Act and Hex both act as ways to destroy our opponents' creatures, but Blasphemous Act doesn't need to target so it can be cast easily and gets around hexproof creatures. In a similar fashion, Soul Shatter gets around hexproof and indestructible by forcing every opponent to sacrifice whatever creature or planeswalker has the highest mana value, so it can be used as targeted removal against multiple players at instant speed.

Though a bit more expensive than other cards in the list, Torment of Hailfire and Exsanguinate can both act as game-ending spells once the game has gone on long enough. Since you'll be continually generating Treasures throughout the game, these tokens can be saved until you have enough to set X to a high enough number to kill everyone else at the table or leave them completely open to a final attack.

Now that you've gone through all the upgrades, here is the final list with all of the upgraded spells added to our grimoire.

While the preconstructed deck could perform well by playing the biggest spell and swinging out each turn, the new list can spend a majority of the game as the reactive player while you set up the win in secret. Though it may have a learning curve with some of the replacement cards, the ceiling for how well this deck performs lies in knowing when to play the right card to get the most value.

One of the best plays this deck can make is by acting as the "rattlesnake" of the table by putting cards into exile face-up to stop your opponent from committing to any actions. If your opponents see that you'll be able to cast a board wipe or destroy their artifacts next turn, they will likely wait until someone else plays a card first so that they don't lose any resources, which gives you plenty of time to set up the best possible plays. As a warlock, you never want to be the first person in a combat, but you always want to be the one that ends the fight and gets the loot!

Where to Go From Here

In black-red, the best way to improve a deck is by playing better lands like shocks and fetches. Knowing the top card of your deck is a vital piece of information for Prosper, Tome-Bound, so Sensei's Divining Top should be one of the first cards you add once you've gotten used to the list. Additionally, black offers a lot of tutors that can help find the perfect card at any moment and, since Prosper can always exile whatever card is on top of your deck, cards like Vampiric Tutor have very little downside.

The final member of our party headlines the Dungeons of Death deck, so come back tomorrow to see how we do! You can find me on Twitter where I talk about all things Trading Card Game, including some of the cards you chose not to play in today's article!
