You can now buy all the 2015 Commander decks. Our group is pooling together to make the whole lot cheaper.

What are people's thoughts on the new decks? I currently use Thraximunder and will take the "Call the Spirits" pack.

There are:
Call the Spirits
Wade in to Battle
Plunder the Graves
Swell the Host
Seize Control

I've been out of the loop on current releases, but I support this idea wholeheartedly. My buddies and I each bough a different Commander deck when Commander 2013 came out, and we had a blast with those. We've spent the last two years casually tweaking them and playing them every 3 months or so.

In casually looking at some forums, it seems like most people are excited about the value of the cards included in the Black-Green deck (yes, I know prices will fluctuate and/or fall now that there is a reprint). MTG Goldfish usually does a financial value review article prior to releases like this. And here it is.

So it seem that White-Red deck might currently have the most value, but no runaway valuable deck. Also, it seems that the person writing that article seems to be really excited about this Commander set.

Maybe I'll pick one or two up along the way. Have fun playing with your friends this weekend!

Recently I had the majority of my board game group "get back" into Magic after reading about commander. They all picked up precons like these and have been LOVING the game again, some after 10+ years of avoiding it.

These decks coming out this week are all very solid, and that GB one look BRUTAL.

As a BW player already, I'm picking up some single cards from that deck to infuse into the one I already have.

Looks like they suck pretty bad as far as value goes. Don't look that fun either. Apparently wizards alternates stinkers and hits.

All comes down to personal opinion as well, I may not pick any of them up (own many of the cards that would draw me to do so), but I think they look very good. My only complaint is that they could have put in some "classic" enemy colored cards as key... Vindicate in the BW deck would have been amazing for example.

As for value, as of right now, they are all valued in the $70-80 range if you were to buy all the cards seperately. Those $2-5 cards add up!

If you could touch the alien sand and hear the cries of strange birds and watch them wheel in another sky, would that satisfy you?

I don't buy the precons, but I'll probably buy ~6-7 singles from the precons. There are some amazing cards in there. Mystic Confluence and Thief of Blood are must-adds to my Thassa and Ob Nix the Fallen decks.

These meet my threshold to buy the set. Last years did not.

I want to buy one (in part) to bolster the BG deck I'm working on.

But precious few of the cards in this BG deck fit what I'm trying to do, and it sure doesn't offer me any help on lands.

Strange as it may sound, I may buy the RW deck to get the tools to support my BG deck. Because I *love* Blade of Selves, I've long wanted Urza's Incubator, and I'd get Lightning Greaves in either deck.
