Commander Legends isn’t expected to release until November 20, but Wizards of the Coast has released the full set spoiler for fans to pour over. While there are tons of powerful cards for players to collect, there are also a few stranger cards in the latest Magic: the Gathering set. Let’s take a look at the weirdest and funniest cards coming to MTG Commander Legends.
Krark, the Thumbless
Poor Krark, he just can’t catch a break (and that’s not just because he has no thumbs). Krark was first mentioned back in the Mirrodin block on the card Krark’s Thumb and then again more recently on Krark’s Other Thumb. Krark lost both his thumbs betting on a hellion race and had to travel to the core of Mirrodin to win them back.
Krark is all about chance, and with his thumbs you increase those odds. While Krark, the Thumbless might not see a ton of play in Commander, it’s definitely one of the funnier cards to be released. It does beg the question though, how can Krark flip those coins without thumbs?
Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith
At first glance, Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith is just a kinda boring commander. It has the Partner ability, which increases it’s playability but it still doesn’t do much. But, Toggo is a weaponsmith and his weapon is a rock. Toggo creates a Rock artifact equipment tokens that can be sacrificed to deal damage to anything. But he’s just, picking up rocks and throwing them. That’s why you have to sacrifice your Rock token, it was thrown and Toggo can’t get it back.
There’s something about calling the first goblin to pick up a rock and throw it a “weaponsmith” that is wildly funny. This goblin is a genius and nobody knows it.
Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh
Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh is everything a player would want in a commander. He’s super cheap to cast, has three keyword abilities with first strike, menace, and trample, and he has Partner. Rograkh’s only downside is that he’s a 0/1 and is basically useless. Rograkh is a kobold, a creature type that was first seen in the early days of Magic’s in the Legends set. Slightly different from goblins, kobolds are typically very weak, with zero casting costs and zero attack.
The little kobold who could is unique in it’s the first legendary card to be printed with zero mana cost. So long as you have a way of boosting his stats, Rograkh could be a powerful little commander. But since he has nothing to start, he’s basically a creature version of Null Rod’s flavor text, “No—it does nothing.”
Hans is no stranger to Magic, as he was first mentioned in the flavor text of the Ice Age card Lhurgoyf. While scouting, Hans and his sister Saffi were attacked by the Lhurgoyf. Saffi was killed but Hans survived, inspiring an almost legendary flavor text in the Magic community. On the left hand side of the art, Saffi can be seen mere moments before the Lhurgoyf attack.
Honestly, the best part of Hans might be his flavor text: “Nothing could ruin such a fine day, Saffi.” It’s sad, but it is an amazing call back to an iconic card from Magic’s history.
Commander Legends has a bunch of other amazing call backs to MTG history. Let us know in the comments which cards you’re looking forward to the most!
