Bloomburrow Commander Decks

Are you ready for the cutest Commander precons ever? Without a doubt, Bloomburrow Commander decks deserve that title. In today’s article, we’re going to talk about everything we currently know about them.

They are set in a world full of beautiful anthropomorphic animals. Currently, we don’t know the included card, but we do know the decks’ names, colors, and general themes. On top of that, the packing was already revealed, which also gives away some fascinating information. So, without further ado, let’s get right to it.

Squirreled Away

  • Theme: Squirrels, tokens
  • Colors: Black, Green

The most iconic creatures in Magic that falls into small & cute category are certainly Squirrels. For some time, Wizards actually avoided printing them, because they were too cute. Thankfully, Magic nowadays takes itself a bit less seriously, so we can get decks such as this one.

What’s going to be interesting is how this deck will differ from a Chatterfang, Squirrel General deck. That’s also a deck that cares about both Squirrels and tokens. Although, perhaps it’ll be just a slightly different take on the same theme.

Whichever the case, there’s no doubt that this Bloomburrow Commander precon will be among the more popular ones. There are just so many enthusiastic fans of this theme.

  • Theme: ?
  • Colors: Red, Green

Each precon comes with two lines of text, that give us a general feeling for the theme. But what do you make from the lines “make trash” and “do smash”?

Given that the deck is red-green, the second line probably means that there will be some attacking with big creatures included. Not too surprising. But what does it mean to make trash?

Scrappy Survivors, one of the four Fallout Commander decks, might be the answer to that. It introduced the so-called Junk tokens. You can turn those tokens into some card advantage, although they come with some timing restrictions.

Now, Junk tokens aren’t by any means confirmed. Nevertheless, they would make a lot of sense, as the trash the packaging refers to. Of course, if they are included, they would use a different artwork, one much more fitting for Bloomburrow.

Oh, and one final thing about the artwork. Did you notice what the raccoon’s staff is holding? That’s a hedron from Zendikar. What do you think it is doing there? Let us know in the comments at the end of this article.

Peace Offering

  • Theme: Group hug, +1/+1 counters
  • Colors: White, Blue, Green

Wow! Group hug is an extremely rare theme for a precon Commander. However, it does make sense for it to appear in a world where everything looks just so friendly.

If you’re a newer player, you might be wondering what’s a group hug. It’s a strategy that typically doesn’t play much — if any, win conditions. Instead, the deck is full of cards that can help multiple players. Often enough, a player playing a group hug deck will try to support the opponent who’s fallen behind.

As such, this deck is great for players who aren’t the most competitive. As long as everyone at the table is having fun, you’re enjoying the game too.

The deck also has a secondary theme, that’s +1/+1 counters. These are always popular, and often used in various Commander precons. The Peace Offering deck will probably be able to distribute them both to your own, as well as your opponents’ creatures.

Family Matters

  • Theme: Go-wide
  • Colors: White, Blue, Red

Did you know that: “Make offspring, go wide” was also the motto of House Frey from Game of Thrones? Jokes aside, just from the packaging, this deck looks like your traditional creature-spawning deck.

So, this precon will probably be great for players who like to fill up the board with as many creatures (and maybe also tokens) as possible. Perhaps there will be some slightly different take on this theme, but to be sure we’ll have to wait a little longer.

Conclusion

That’s all about Bloomburrow Commander decks for now. More information is coming a bit later this week.
