Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths Commander Deck - Gavi, Nest Warden
From WOTC's Ikoria Commander preview, 4/3/2020:
Up next we have a blue-red-white deck featuring a returning mechanic: cycling! Cycling is back in Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, and, similarly to humans, there hasn't really been a cycling commander. Now that all changes!
Here's perhaps the most Gavin-esque card ever made—Gavi, Nest Warden:
Besides having an incredible name, this card is precisely what a cycling deck wants. Once again, you can use it with all kinds of cards in Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, but your older cards are totally fair game. Lots of good combinations here . . . cycle Decree of Silence for free, anybody? (If you free-cycle Decree of Annihilation though . . . well, what your playgroup does to you isn't my responsibility.)
Gavi is just one of the commanders, of course, and not every commander has to do with cycling. Like other Commander products, each commander option gives the deck its own unique feel and personality.
Finally, I want to mention, this is another cool main-set connection. Gavi shows up in the flavor text of tons of cards in the main set of Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths . . . and exists in the Commander decks! It really does make both products feel like a whole unit.
