Svogthir’s Study: An Introduction

My name is Alex Ullman and I’m a Golgari player in Commander.

Over the course of my time playing Commander I have almost never not had access to at least one Golgari deck and usually have two at any given time, and that’s me demonstrating restraint. I love what black and green bring to Commander and how many options the combination provides.

Green grants access to ramp and card draw. It also has fantastic removal options for non-creatures. Black also helps the card flow while handling creatures with ease. These two colors also do the thins I love to do. I get to sacrifice creatures for value, mill myself, use my graveyard as a resource, and make creatures massive with +1/+1 counters Golgari gives me everything I want to do in Magic so why bother with other colors?

What I want to do with this series is share my love for all things Bayou with the rest of the Magic world. I am going to take a look at every Golgari Commander and talk about them. I am going to let you know if I’ve built the deck, if I would build the deck, or if I wouldn’t even bother. I’ll explore some obvious things to do with the Commander and hopefully, some not-so-obvious options.

I hope you join me on this journey as we plumb the depths of the undercity for some buried treasure. It’s going to be a wild ride.
