MTG Wilds of Eldraine Virtue and Valor Commander

Eillivere of the Wild Court

MTG eldraine commander decks - ellivere and the wild courtDmitry Burmak

Ellivere of the Wild Court continues a recent trend of combat-focused Enchantment commanders. While Commander Masters’ Anikthea, Hand of Erebos generated Enchantment creatures and granted them evasion, Ellivere of the Wild Court supercharges your existing creatures, powering them up based on the number of Enchantments at your disposal.

It’s well worth enchanting and protecting Ellivere herself so that she can attack and trigger her ability as often as possible, placing a Virtuous Role token on another creature you control. The Virtuous Role is unique to Ellivere and it serves her overall strategy well, turning even the weakest vanilla creatures into real heavy-hitters. When you inevitably deal damage with your powerful enchanted creatures, Ellivere will trigger a card draw and allow you to restock your hand with even more Enchantments.

MTG Wilds of Eldraine Virtue and Valor Strategy

Virtue and Valor is full of ways to reliably generate cheap creatures and power them up with Enchantments, alongside general boosts to Enchantments that will help generate value. With 31 creatures and 21 Enchantments, your options are fairly evenly split between the two.

Daybreak Coronet, Angelic Destiny and Bear Umbra load your creatures up with additional power and toughness and a host of combat abilities, while additionally contributing to Ellivere’s Virtuous boost.

Sanctum Weaver and Paradise Druid are excellent, cheap Mana Dorks, while Starfield Mystic, Jukai Naturalist, Transcendant Envoy and Danitha Capashen, Paragon all work to cut down on the cost of your Enchantments and Auras. With Ellivere damage boosting through the Virtuous role, being able to swarm the field with cheap Enchantments and Creatures is a sure path to victory.

That’s not to say that Virtue and Valor is without some costly, powerful options too. Pollenbright Wings is the deck’s most mana-intensive Enchantment, and it more than earns that spot by generating a huge amount of Saprolings and allowing you to go wide all at once. Realm-cloaked Giant is a board wipe and creature in one, thanks to the Adventure mechanic. and the ever-reliable Sun Titan can be a powerful battlefield presence that brings your cards right back from the grave to the battlefield.
