Rhystic Study: Zacama, Primal Calamity


Greetings, chosen one... Welcome to the 53rd column of "Rhystic Study"! Today's we're going to be building around one of Rival of Ixalan's Legendary Creatures, Zacama, Primal Calamity.

It's a relatively straight-forward Commander - all we need to do is to ramp towards nine mana, drop it, and use it to control the board. As long as you have tons of mana, you will be able to shoot down opposing creatures, and kill the most threatening artifacts and enchantments on the table, all by itself!

If you manage to transform Azor's Gateway, even better!

We'd want to start out with the usual green ramp spells, such as Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore, Farseek, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Explosive Vegetation, and Skyshroud Claim.

To ramp up even further, we can throw in Traverse the Outlands and Boundless Realms! Oh yes, Animist's Awakening too!

Be sure to include lots of basic lands!

Sol Ring Grim Monolith Coalition Relic Hedron Archive Worn Powerstone Thran Dynamo


Then, we add the fastest mana rocks in the format - Sol RingMana CryptGrim MonolithWorn PowerstoneCoalition RelicThran DynamoGilded LotusDreamstone HedronHedron Archive, and many others! We'll be able to get to nine mana in no time at all, and start wrecking havoc on the board!


Austere Command Decimate Vandalblast Swords to Plowshares Blasphemous Act Beast Within


Some additional spot removal and mass removal spells are in order, seeing how we'll be behind on the board during the early game while we're developing our mana. Austere CommandBlasphemous ActDecimateVandalblastPath to ExileSwords to Plowshares and Beast Within are great picks!


Atzocan Seer Drover of the Mighty Otepec Huntmaster Forerunner of the Empire Polyraptor


Some new cards like Atzocan SeerDrover of the Mighty and Otepec Huntmaster might be underwhelming in regular Commander decks, but you have a Dinosaur as your Commander! You can even throw in the combo of Forerunner of the Empire and Polyraptor!


Zendikar Resurgent Mirari's Wake


Things get truly bonkers when you get double mana, so be sure to use your tutors such as Enlightened Tutor and Idyllic Tutor to grab these! How's the deck looking so far? Let's put together a Zacama, Primal Calamity deck today!
