Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths Commander Deck - Jirina Kudro
From WOTC's Ikoria Commander preview, 4/3/2020:
Up first is the red-white-black Human tribal deck, with one of the possible commanders you can use being Jirina Kudro:
Human tribal is a subtheme of Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths. After all, with monsters running around everywhere, the humans have to do something to try and stop them. Teamwork is important here, and there are so many humans in Magic's history . . . but no good human commander to lead them all! The best you get is something like Sigarda. (Yes, yes, and Morophon, I know.)
As such, this was a really great opportunity to support the set theme and create a cool commander that is backwards compatible with tons of other cards. You want to use new Ikoria humans? Great! You want to dust off your Champion of the Parishes and Vigilante Justices? That totally works too.
One other cool thing I'll call out here is that the creative for Ikoria Commander was really developed in parallel with the main set. It's not like the main set got finished and then Commander picked up the scraps: Jirina is a main character of the set and gets to sit on the front of this deck! Awesome.
