First, I want to thank Wizards of the Coast for the chance to preview three new cards from the upcoming set, Commander Legends. CMR is oozing with flavor, from desirable reprints to fresh takes on beloved characters from Magic's rich history.

But let's not keep you waiting—today I bring to you Nightshade Harvester, Necrotic Hex, and Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar.

Let's break down each card and see where they would fit best in Commander.

Nightshade Harvester

Nightshade Harvester is an exciting card with a unique design. Golgari Elves looks to be a theme in Commander Legends Sealed, and this is a fantastic rare to support it. While the creature type can be relevant, Nightshade Harvester will also have its uses in a non-tribal strategy.

(Can we take a moment to appreciate this awesome art by Pindurski?)

The 1 life may not seem much, but the gradual increase of counters will make this a threat to respect. Nightshade Harvester is an ideal answer to the ongoing popularity of ramp in Commander. If this survives a turn around the table, untapping with a still-growing 5/5 will require an immediate answer. Even better, pairing Nightshade Harvester with a Doubling Season will create a formidable win condition. This card will see frequent play in black-based strategies, as it can attack prey on various archetypes within the format. Plus, swinging in with a 10/10 never gets old, trust me.

Fortunately, Golgari Elves is excellent with Nath of the Gilt-Leaf at the helm. Even better, Elves is a fantastic option on a budget.

+1 Nightshade Harvester

Nath of the Gilt-Leaf is ideal as a resource-punishing Commander for Elves. The objective is to drain your opponents out of resources and swarm the board with Elves. Fortunately, Nightshade Harvester complements this approach with the incidental life loss alongside developing a threat. It also receives boons from various lords such as Imperious Perfect and Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen to promote inevitability. I'm curious to see where Nightshade Harvester ends up within Commander, as I think it has incredible potential.

Necrotic Hex

Next, we have Necrotic Hex, which will play an important role in Commander Legends Limited.

A key element of Commander is having access to a reset button, and Commander Legends provides. Necrotic Hex is a great way to wipe the board while breaking even on your creatures. The Zombies come in tapped, but you don't care about sacrificing your creatures—you're in black, you can recur them later on!

An interesting fact about the card is that Necrotic Hex was originally part of the nine-mana cycle in the set. However, with Profane Transfusion becoming a better fit, there was an opening for a potent sweeper given the significance of these within the format. As a result, Necrotic Hex took a rare slot and became a board wipe instead. During design, Necrotic Hex destroyed all creatures and created that many Zombies. Yet, this was too strong as it gave you 30+ power and ended up becoming a net positive for you. After revision, six became the ideal number which ended up as a sly reference to the Ravnica: City of Guilds card, Hex.

As Necrotic Hex creates Zombie tokens, it has a perfect home in a Zombie tribal deck. Like with Elves, Zombies are achievable on a budget.

+1 Necrotic Hex

With Gisa and Geralf at the helm, you have various ways to recur Zombies and swarm the board. Necrotic Hex is a token generator with upside here, and it's easy to cast your threats again due to Gisa and Geralf ability. Also, your Zombie tokens become dangerous threats if there is a Death Baron or Liliana's Mastery in play. Zombies are a resilient tribe within Commander, and you will swarm the board before your opponents can react.

Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar

Lastly, we have Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar who seems purrfect as a partner.

Falthis is part of an uncommon cycle of familiars—kind of like having your Commander's pet aid you in battle. As per the theme, these familiars support your Commander in some way. With Falthis, she provides menace and deathtouch to your Commanders to help them break through blockers.

To utilize Nightmare Familiar best, I am going to spotlight one of my favorite formats in recent times, Pauper Commander (PEDH).

PEDH uses a few different rules from the traditional form of Commander. You can use any uncommon creature as your general, and you begin on 30 life with commander damage maxing out at 16. As the name suggests, you can only use commons within the 99. This promotes creative deckbuilding—not to mention, it's a blast to play!

Commander Legends features a swath of uncommon partners. That means there are tons of ways to build a fun PEDH deck that oozes with flavor. For example, you can pair Falthis with the recently previewed Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar.

Usually, the familiars pair well with an owner, but what if they wanted to have some fun themselves?

Commanders: Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar and Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar

What makes Falthis and Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar work together is that they're cheap to cast. Falthis creates awkward blocks allowing you to connect with Kediss's ability. Often in PEDH, there can be board stalls that make it tough to attack through your opponents' blockers. Having a routine way to connect (and deal damage to all opponents) makes winning through combat damage much more reliable. Plus, Rakdos in PEDH is very good as you have plenty of removal so you can keep the board state tidy.

If you want to go all-in, employing a Voltron approach could work. For instance, Whispersilk Cloak and Bonesplitter could break parity with the commanders in play. Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar lets your attacks deal damage to every opponent at once, so you can power either Commander up and go for the face. Being the aggressor in PEDH is a logical line and can end games on the spot.

I recommend checking out PEDH, as the format is a bunch of fun. Also, cards shift in rarity all the time, meaning the format expands set by set. For example, Makeshift Munitions saw a downshift last week thanks to the Commander Legends reprint. With this, you could easily curate a PEDH deck with a Commander Legends box. Similar to the #EDHBoxingLeague on Twitter, building within a restriction breeds creativity. It's cheap, fun, and it can become a solid foundation to upgrade into a non-Pauper Commander deck in time.

Commander Legends looks to be packed with welcome reprints and new cards. Getting into Commander is easier than ever, and I cannot wait to see the new cards make an impact. The end of the month can't come soon enough, and I will no doubt amass many PEDH decks as a result.

Once again, thank you to Wizards of the Coast for the opportunity to preview these cards. Special thanks to Gavin Verhey, who provided some interesting tidbits about the cards for this article.
