Commander 2019 - Faceless Menace
Our first Commander 2019 deck is a Sultai morph deck helmed by Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer. Kadena hails from the plane of Tarkir, and her deck includes some of the most powerful morph creatures from Khans of Tarkir block: the surprise hexproof Sagu Mauler, the board-clearing Thousand Winds, and the dynamic duo of Den Protector and Deathmist Raptor. “Faceless Menace” also includes plenty of cards that work well with morphs: Trail of Mystery and Secret Plans buff your face-down creatures’ stats and generate card advantage, while Seedborn Muse‘s untap ability gives you more opportunities to pay morph costs.
Kadena herself is an excellent commander for a morph deck. She reduces the cost of playing a face-down creature each turn, and if you have a critical mass of morphs, you’ll be drawing tons of cards. The alternate commanders for this deck aren’t quite as on-theme, but Rayami and Volrath are both useful if you enjoy stealing other creatures’ abilities. Grismold is also an interesting tool for creature token decks, or any decks that care about opponents’ creatures dying.
