Commander 2017 (C17) Spoiler Week Day 2 – Dragons, etc.

The Ur-Dragon C17

It’s day two of spoiler week for Commander (2017 Edition). Today, we get our first official look at the dragons of C17, plus a few bonuses.

Perhaps the most notable spoiler today is Path of Ancestry, which is an easy auto-include in all tribal commander decks moving forward. With the amount of hype around tribal commanders, we could certainly see this card becoming one of the more desired singles moving forward.

Scion of the Ur-DragonAnother card to pay particular attention to is Kindred Discovery, which can provide any tribal commander running blue an explosive mid-to-late-game if it goes unanswered. Even on the turn it comes out, expect its caster to draw 2-3 cards from the attack trigger. Kindred Discovery is a great addition to blue/black zombie strategies, slivers and more.

Finally, we also see a welcome reprint of Leonin Arbiter, further pointing to C17’s cat tribal deck as featuring at least some level of pillow-fort strategy. The Arbiter is not a particularly expensive card, but it’s nice to see its inclusion here to help keep the price from creeping up.

Oh, and did I forget to mention that after over a decade, we finally get to see The Ur-Dragon? And he’s 10/10.
