Modern Horizons 3 Commander Decks

A third installment of Modern Horizons is coming, ready to shake the Modern format once again. However, there’s something special about this set. It’s the first time that Commander precons are going to be released alongside it. So, today we’re going to take a look at all four Modern Horizons 3 Commander decks, and see what they’re all about.

While we don’t know much about the cards in the deck, we do know the decks’ names, colors and themes. Let’s get right to it, and unveil that information.

Eldrazi Incursion

  • Theme: Eldrazi
  • Colors: All five + colorless

We’re starting with an absolute banger of a deck. It’s a deck all about Eldrazi, which is always a popular creature type. A similar deck was probably the most popular among Commander Masters precons, and there’s no reason for that to change much here.

After all, this is the first deck that includes all give colors and the colorless mana too. It’s highly likely that this precon will be the most unique from the bunch. You’ll start the game by playing small Eldrazi that will ramp you towards the big threats. It’s a reasonable guess to assume that some Eldrazi Scion and similar creatures will appear in this deck.

Graveyard Overdrive

  • Theme: Graveyard
  • Colors: Black, Red, Green

Next up, here’s a Jund deck that cares about the graveyard. Nothing too surprising, but it’s going to be interesting to see what Wizards mean by the line “avenge the dead”. Perhaps a mechanic similar to morbid, the one that triggers whenever a creature dies?

Tricky Terrain

  • Theme: Ramp, Value
  • Colors: Blue, green

This looks like the most Simicy of the Simic decks. You’re going to ramp and get value. That’s something green-blue players love.

Judging by the look of the box, there might be some doubling going on. What kind? Perhaps something that allows you to duplicate your commander. We shall wait a little longer to find out.

Creative Energy

  • Theme: Energy counters
  • Colors: White, Blue, Red

After the Science! precon from Fallout, this is yet another deck centered around energy counters. It’s funny how we went multiple years without a single energy card, but now we’re getting two precons in a single year.

The deck is promising us powerful payoffs, so that’s something to look forward to. The energy decks were somewhat lacking in that department.


More information is coming in the next week or so. That includes info about the Collector versions of these decks.
