Murders at Karlov Manor is here, packed with powerful new cards and plenty of legendary creatures to inspire a fresh Commander deck. Take, for example, Tolsimir, Midnight's Light and Trostani, Three Whispers.

Tolsimir, Midnight's Light Trostani, Three Whispers

Both can make the combat step tricky for your opponents, and perhaps together, they're even more frightening to fight.

While you could build a new deck for one or the other—just in time for a Murders at Karlov Manor Commander Party at a local game store near you February 16–18—there's another way to give new cards a chance to shine.

Ellie Rice, Magic game designer and member of the Commander Advisory Group, has a Commander deck that brings variety and fresh cards to every game. This is her modular Captain Sisay Commander deck.

Both Tolsimir, Midnight's Light and Trostani, Three Whispers fit right into a Captain Sisay deck and can be just the right legendary cards to search up with Sisay. In fact, across Magic, there are dozens of amazing legendary creatures you might want to have handy for Sisay to find.

That's why Ellie's deck brings them all along. For her Captain Sisay deck, she keeps all the legendary creatures in a separate deckbox. Before every game, she randomly shuffles in just enough legendary creatures to complete the deck, allowing some variety for every game. It's a clever way to get a game in with new cards, personal favorites, or aim for maximum randomness—no two games need to play the exact same cards!

Whether it's when you sit down with friends or join a Commander Party for a sweet promo card this weekend, going modular like Ellie can be just what you need to make your next game even better!
