So except if you’re playing only for winning – you should mix things up occasionally and test other cards. When dealing with new cards you should off course look at CMC.

If we don’t consider synergy to your commander, you should consider on two parameters, when picking cards. 1. The uppermost outcome and 2. the undermost effect.

1. certain cards got high potential, like exile every creatures and get a card for each creature that left the battlefield this way. Other cards like a single spot removal has a obvious little maximum effect.

2. Then there’s also the lowest effect. A board clearence has a minimum effect of zero – because there might not be any creatures on the board when the spell is being played. Other cards e.g. direct damage are more secure to cast and works promptly, which raises the minimum effect. Aim for a card, that works both directions if you can. It’s great idea to have a good mix of cards with both advantages, but even better to choose cards, that works in both ways in some amount.
