Streets of New Capenna - Commander Awards

From : #BeatTheBuylist - 27/08/2022

Its been an unbelievable FOUR MONTHS since the last standard set dropped (to be fair to the never ending spoiler season, we have had a commander set and masters set in the middle) - plenty of time for all the Streets of New Capenna commanders to be built, and the dust to settle on who's top, just before Dominaria United drops!

  1. Most popular commander
  2. Most expensive Commander to build
  3. Most salt inducing commander

Most Popular Streets of New Capenna Commander

Quite a way out in front, in a shard heavy set no less, is a mono white Angel tribal commander Giada, Font of Hope with 3,780 decks.

My expectation of Jinnie Fay, Jetmir's Second to be in the top 5 was unfortunately wrong, but it seems like the go wide / token strategy winner goes to Jetmir, Nexus of Revels

Raffine, Scheming Seer uses the new Connive mechanic (draw X, discard X where X is the number of attacking creatures) - so we're looking at go wide flyers..meh?

Ziatora, the Incinerator is a Fling on a stick - play a fatty, throw it at someones face use damage doublers, aristocrat pingers, get some treasures as a reward...seems like fun actually...

Rounding out the top 5 slot is Queza, Augur of Agonies - a card that would be utterly amazing if it said "each opponent"... :(

Most Expensive Streets of New Capenna Commander

The number we're looking at here is the 75% quartile - 25% of decks for a commander are built to be more expensive than this price (so 75% are less expensive)

Also shown on the chart is the 90% quartile - so only 10% of decks are built to be more expensive than this - if the 90% marker lies outside the thin line, it is classed as an outlier to the data - an unusually high value compared to the rest

The first two entries look like they are CEDH viable - Rocco, Cabaretti Caterer (food chain combo) and Raffine, Scheming Seer (Turbo ad naus), so no surprises they are ahead of the pack - but Rocco, Cabaretti Caterer is way ahead at $4,274!

Nothing too exciting in the rest of the pack, all seem to be centered around $1000 for a 75% build

Most Salt-Inducing Streets of New Capenna Commander

Using the EDHRec salt scores to rank our SNC Commanders, (Basically, this means the most maddening decks to play against - depending on what type of person you are, that might just mean the most fun to play)

What is this? A set of "fair magic" commanders? Where's the salt?!! Not here - unless you go into CEDH territory, that's where all the salty cards live - Rocco, Cabaretti Caterer and Raffine, Scheming Seer, i'm looking at you again!
