StarCityGames.com writer Sean McKeown is always up for a Commander challenge in his reader-inspired Commander column. This week he takes a look at the tricky general Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker. By building around the general and playing lots of small creatures, the deck can perform neat tricks and cute combos over and over again. Take some inspiration from this Commander deck, and check out Sean's column at StarCityGames.com.
