      3. I’ve always wanted to build a group hug deck. A buddy of mine and his son who live in the same apartment complex wanted to do a $100 deck challenge, so I came up with this brew.
      4. What is a group hug deck - “Group Hug is a Commander deck archetype known for providing resources to opposing players, sometimes in exchange for political favors, for the purpose of using those resources or favors to eventually win the game.” - EDH Rec
        1. Lenny told me it was a control deck in disguise.
      5. The commander - Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis
        1. These dudes seem cool because I like drawing an extra card and laying an extra land. It’s not extra threatening because it’s at the end of my turn and I feel like ppl are disincentivized to kill it because they’re getting an extra land drop or card draw

They will melt the rest of your play group (literally) if you bring them to EDH night. EDH night is def going to need water… to put out the fires left in the seats where you opponents used to be sitting.
