Planet JJs would like to invite you to attend our Magic the Gathering – Wednesday Casual Commander Evening!
This a great opportunity to play Magic the Gathering with other people who also want to play Magic the Gathering. Our Wednesday evenings will be open to existing players as well as new players who want to delve into the fantastic worlds of Magic the Gathering. To keep things a little simple the format of Magic evenings will be Commander – more info on that below, but don’t worry about it we will have 1 or 2 spare Commander decks available to help get people started.
Our Magic the Gathering sessions will be on Wednesdays (starting from the 8th December 2021) running from 18:00 until 21:00 (or until the last game is played), and there is a small charge of £4 per person.
So, fancy coming along? Want to give it a go? Complete our Magic Evening enquiry form to register your interest and reserve your place (subject to availability).
What Is Commander?
Commander is an exciting, unique way to play Magic that is all about awesome legendary creatures, big plays, and battling your friends in epic multiplayer games! In Commander, each player chooses a legendary creature as the commander of their deck. They then play with a 99-card deck that contains only cards of their commander’s colors. Also, other than basic lands, each deck can only use one copy of any card. During the game, you can cast your commander multiple times, meaning your favorite Legendary Creature can come back again and again to lead the charge as you battle for victory!
These Commander decks introduce an ability called eminence that lets your commander lead from the command zone, even before they have entered the battlefield. The eminence ability appears on characters from all parts of Magic lore, allowing you to call on the power and skill of some of the best leaders in the Multiverse.
How To Play Commander
The Commander format is all about picking your hero and building a deck around them. In this casual, multiplayer format, you choose a legendary creature to serve as your commander and build the rest of your deck around their color identity.
