Longtime Magic player and perennial StarCityGames.com writer Bennie Smith is a Commander fanatic, and in his newest article he goes over his take on a Ruhan of the Fomori deck. The exclusive legend from the Magic: The Gathering Commander product has quickly turned into a fan favorite. With a nod to the commander's strengths, Smith tries building around a seemingly random general awhirl!
While Ruhan's ability might look like a drawback, in the world of Commander it can often work to your advantage! Because of politics at the multiplayer table, who to attack is often a question of great debate that you can be punished for—but not so when Ruhan is out. If Ruhan attacks someone it's not your fault... so in that case, Bennie figured it would be a good plan to make Ruhan as large as possible!
An abundance of equipment provides Ruhan with plenty of ways to suit up. Accidentally attack into a larger creature? That's okay, Nim Deathmantle can bring him right back. Want to block it? Kusari-Gama ensures that's a painful choice. The deck even sports the full Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, and Helm of Kaldra set to enhance Ruhan of the Fomori—or summon the mighty Kaldra in a pinch!
Full of powerful red, white, and blue spells to taste, Smith's take on the deck provides a neat spin on Ruhan. Take some inspiration from his version, and check out his article on the deck!
