Commander Deck – Sharuum the Hegemon

June 30, 2011

I’ve had a couple requests for my Sharuum Commander deck. Sharuum is a pretty powerful and popular general in Commander. My deck right now is a mostly “fair” deck that happens to have some backbreaking combos in it. It’s intended for multiplayer (how my playgroup plays pretty much exclusively), and is probably one of the more powerful decks in our group. I like Sharuum because it requires some forethought to how the game needs to play out, and has lines of play that encourage you to plan ahead a little bit. My deck has optional lines of play depending on how much heat I want to put on myself or what other decks need answering.

Anyway, on to the list!

Basic Land

  • Swamp (6)
  • Plains (8)
  • Island (8)

So there it is! It’s a fun list, and I’m looking to improve it whenever I get new cards or when new sets come out. For instance, I definitely need to get a Solemn Simulacrum, Phyrexian Metamorph, and when it comes out, a Buried Ruin. I’m sure there are plenty of other good utility cards I just don’t have for the deck too, like Academy Ruins, Enlightened Tutor, Demonic Tutor, etc. My cube comes first when buying cards, of course! If you see anything in my list that looks interesting, try it in your deck! One of my favorite combinations is sacrificing Pilgrim’s Eye with Skullclamp over and over. Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas is really powerful as a simple draw engine as well.

Thanks for taking a look!
