Commander can be an expensive format to build decks for. But there are many ways to have fun while sticking to a budget. Find lesser-known alternatives that exist to many powerful cards. Try other variants and formats to play with. Discover interesting new commanders to brew decks with. And if your playgroup wants to change things up, consider adopting the Dollar Commander variant.
Dollar Commander is a new variant with roots in other budget-minded variants like 2DH and Penny Dreadful. You choose a dollar tier between $1 and $5. Each card in your deck can’t be higher than that dollar tier. Commanders can be in a higher tier, or exempted entirely.
The beginning of the Dollar Commander 2019–2020 season begins with the Commander 2019 release on Friday, August 22. Visit the official rules page for more information.
