One-Two Punch: Golgari

September 12, 2014

This entry is part 7 of 10 in the series One-Two Punch

By Dodo Bird Commander writer Ryan Zeitz


Hey everyone, Rhyno here charging at you with the seventh installment of “One-Two Punch”, a 10-part series where I show you 3 powerful card pairs, one 2-color guild at a time.

These are NOT combos in the traditional sense that they instantly K.O. (cuz that’s below the belt). Instead, they’re the jab and the uppercut you need to get back in the fight when your opponents have you cornered.

Green-black is Golgari…Let’s go!




Move 1: Phyrexian Obliterator + Prey Upon

If you’re looking for a quick way to make your opponents sacrifice a ton of permanents, this to me is by far the best way. There are always gigantic monsters lurking around in Commander, so let’s suppose an opponent has Godsire out and you prey upon it. They’ll be forced to sacrifice 8 permanents!













Move 2: Ob Nixilis, the Fallen + Boundless Realms

This is a combination that’ll get you LOTS of lands, take LOTS of life from your opponents, and earn you a creature with LOTS of power. To give you an idea of the punch this duo packs, let’s say you put 7 lands onto the battlefield with Boundless Realms. You’ll have 21 points of life loss to dish out and a 24/24 Ob Nixilis at your side!













Move 3: Sheoldred, Whispering One + Vulturous Zombie

This combo isn’t as swift as the previous two, but after a few turns things’ll really start to get out of hand. Of course Sheoldred is great on her own, but her ability to make opponents sacrifice creatures will grow your Vulturous Zombie to scary heights, frightfully fast.












So there you have it! Three one-two punches you can try pulling on your friends in your green-black deck.

What are your favorite one-two punches in the land of Golgari? Let me know in the comments section below.
