In this Commander article, we talk about Magic's most popular archetype, Burn!Edit Article
About BurnAnother of these strategies, and the one we'll discuss today, is
Burn. Known for running in any format, from Pauper to Legacy, with good efficiency, this deck archetype is undoubtedly one of the most beloved by players, as it's focused on using a cadence of prowess creatures and spells that deal direct damage to the opponent, Burn is extremely capable of dealing with opponents with twenty life in a few turns. However, following the logic presented by Infect, for this strategy to succeed in 1v1 it is necessary to allocate resources fully focused on the opponent and hope that each of your future draws is a spell capable of dealing more damage. Now, against three opponents, all with twice the life total of a conventional one-on-one opponent, getting that much damage becomes a lot more costly. Still, Commander is freedom, and there are those who will always seek to use their favorite strategy in the format. Thinking about them, I made this list that seeks to avoid the greatest weakness of the archetype and build something solid on top of it.
