If you have been crazy enough to endure trudging through most of my articles you probably know I usually march to the beat of my own melodica player (seriously who needs drums when there are breath powered keyboards around). I’ve made a lot of odd choices in my thematic decks like building them around a Rush song, a Coen Brother’s movie, old people, and things riding things but this time I may have officially stamped my hand insane. Deck restrictions and thematic deck talk has been well covered thus far on CommanderCast (like Here and Here to show a few) so I don’t think I really need to try and convince you why people build them, enjoy playing them, and are consistently coming up with new ones.

Steeling myself, I ducked inside, and all traces of natural light vanished. The neatly furnished reception area, softly lit by glowing powerstones, wasn’t exactly what I had expected- polished chrome and gleaming brass contrasted sharply with the jagged, makeshift facade. The solemn simulacrum of a secretary seated at the desk glanced up at me as I approached, its eyes flickering with an electric blue light.
“Yes, how may I assist you?” it inquired in a tinny voice.
“I’d… well, I’d, I’d like to buy an army,” I managed to stammer.
“Ah…” rasped the secretary as it stood with a whisper of hydraulics, “I believe you will wish to see Mistress Nin, then.”
