Deck Description

A beneficial deal? For you, surely...

This is a Budget Elder Dragon Highlander deck (BEDH for short). It is meant for the Elder Dragon Highlander format, a.k.a. Commander. If you are not familiar with the format, I'll link it below for you.

I mostly use MTG Vault for my own private projects nowadays, but feel free to comment or request a deck of your choice. I've loved the Vault so far, and I like that they are still improving on it, as well as I am improving on my English language skills.

So, if you like what you see, consider checking out some of my other budget-y work through the link below.

How to Play

Jon Irenicus forces you to look at your creatures with a whole new perspective:
how can you play something that your opponents will surely hate having?

Drop creatures with twisted benefits, then shove them to an opponent's service. Creatures like Lord of the Void and Wretched Anurid become far more interesting to play once they end up on the other side of the table.

Once you have shared a couple of "gifts" around, take control of the field with a wide array of control spells. As soon as one or two of your foes fall, make sure to have a killspell or two to handle the biggest threats your opponents control, possibly those owned by you!

Statistics, pros and cons:

Statistics: (out of 5)

- This deck needs Jon Irenicus to run smoothly. Keep him alive!
- Your gifts to your opponents may even become disadvantageous to you in some scenarios. Watch out!
