For all colour, there are magic cards, that are so good, that all Commander decks should have them – no matter which commander you are using. Traditionally green has land ramp, blue has counterspells, card draw or mass bounce. Red has some useful combo cards and black got tutors. Lastly white has board wipes and tokens. This was only to name a fewcards. You will also need some critical artifacts, like Mana crypt. If you always choose these cards – all your magic decks will be similar and get a little monotonous. So unless your are playing only for winning – you should blend things up from time to time and try other cards. When considering cards you should obviously concentrate on CMC. Your mana curve I EDH, isn’t so crucial as in modern or legacy, but you got to possess early control or protection. If you do not build a synergy to your commander, you should consider on 2 angles, when selecting cards. 1. The upper effect and 2. the minimum effect.

1. Some cards got big potential, like exile every creatures and draw a card for each creature that where removed this way. Other cards like a direct damage has a natural little maximum effect.

2. Then we got the undermost effect. A boardwipe has a minimum effect of 0 – because there might not be any creatures on the board when the spell resolves. Other cards for example direct damage are more unrisky to cast and takes effect immediately, which raises the minimum effect. Aim for a card, that performs both directions if it makes sense. It’s good tactic to have a diverce mix of cards with both assets, and even better to find cards, that performs in both ways in some amount.

Winning is fun. But the winning feeling will be replaced with bitterness, if your enemies disgust your win condition. Some combos are more likeable than others. Here are some recommandations about which combo kills to skip out on:

• Stop using two cards infinite combos, that will create instant win.

• Avoid making mass mana removal – unless you are able to win within a couple of turns.

• Avoid funnel visioning on the same combo – it is dull

• Do not use a lot of tutorcards to search for the same combo pieces over and over again

• Avoid using mass draw, card search and board control that results a long and slow victory.

Independent play groups are often more less competitive. Organized play communities are in the middle. Finally the competitive tournaments, organized by companies or magic shops, are the most competitive, where the fun level is absent.

Mana ramp is important when playing aggression and also when preparing for late game finishers. If you unluckily don’t draw a mana ramp card within the first four turns, you will lose terrain to your opponents – especially if you are not the starting player.

This will crack the mana curve and let you cast big bombs earlier. Lands on the battlefield is more safe way of ramping, instead of using artifact rocks or other mana utilities – thus that lands are more difficult to exile. When you are playing green it is easy to find great ramp cards. If you are not playing green, you have to look for non green sources.
