Quote from Life1ess »Am I alone in my concern that the 2016 commander decks are going to be a raging dumpster fire? The last few sets of decks have been easily playable and even somewhat competitive right out of the box. I can't imagine a budget 4 color manabase that isn't slow as dirt and inconsistent.
I'm sure there will be some exciting new cards but I'm not convinced the decks will work.
I'm sure they will be playable agains each other. They are going to have plenty of CITP lands, which will make for games with more turns, but they will also have plenty of mana rocks that tap for colored mana, even if they might have only a few uses.
