Bruna Commander

When Gavin Verhey was eleven, he dreamt of a job making Magic cards—and now as a Magic designer, he's living his dream! Gavin has been writing about Magic since 2005.

Avid Commander player and Great Designer Search 2 finalist Devon Rule was eager to try out some of Avacyn Restored's legendary Angels. The one that most caught his eye? Bruna, Light of Alabaster! This Aura-friendly angel adds new texture to enchantment-heavy decks, providing a much different avenue from Zur the Enchanter to show off some of the awesome enchantments you can play in Commander.

This deck spends its early turns accelerating and building up its stockpile of enchantments. Cards like Three Dreams, Tallowisp, and Intuition set up your Bruna, dumping Auras into your hand and graveyard.

Once your desired enchantments are ready to go, it's time to deploy Bruna! A single attack from her should unload several cards from your hand. With Celestial Mantle, Eldrazi Conscription, and Steel of the Godhead around, that's bound to be a boatload of damage!

Bruna isn't the only enchantment-loving creature around either. Geist of Saint Traft can hold an Aura nicely, and Sovereigns of Lost Alara can power out your most powerful Auras. Even Hakim, Loreweaver makes an appearance to dish out some damage!

Avacyn Restored features a lot of powerful cards—and several great commanders—for Commander. Check out the decklist below, and take a look over the Avacyn Restored Card Image Gallery to see what fits into your Commander deck!
