Background: Commander is a modern name for a game known as EDH or Eldar Dragon Highlander. The game is simple in nature, but don’t be fooled it is very complex. The rules are pretty simple; assemble a 100 card deck or more, with 1 of those cards being a legendary creature labeled your commander. This commander will sit in your general zone and not be shuffled into your library. You may cast this general at anytime you have mana but after he dies, the casting cost will increase by 2 colorless mana. Your commander is important because the colors used to cast him/her are the only colors you may use in your deck; so choose him carefully. Once your commander is selected, you can start the process of building your deck. Assemble 99 cards, excluding basic land, no two cards are the same. There is a ban list specifically for this format so you want to avoid those cards. You have now created an EDH deck!
The standard league rules apply which can be found here.
