No other card in Magic the Gathering practically says “abuse every tap ability your creatures have” like [mtg cardname=”Thousand-Year Elixir” setname=”Commander 2013″ linktext=”Thousand-Year Elixir”] does! A reprint from Lorwyn, Thousand-Year Elixir has been a friend of Commander players for years, but now it’s far more accessible due to its Commander 2013 reprint. Its printing in the Evasive Maneuvers deck, a deck all about creatures’ tap abilities, makes tons of sense.
Not only does Thousand-Year Elixir allow you to use the tap abilities of creatures as soon as they hit the board, but you can also pay 1 and tap the Elixir in order to untap one of your creatures. It’s an amazing utility card that in combination with Commanders like [mtg cardname=”Derevi, Empyrial Tactician” setname=”Commander 2013″ linktext=”Derevi, Empyrial Tactician”], can cause your opponents to have some really bad days. Kudos to Wizards for reprinting such a solid card for Commander in the pre-constructed deck that can abuse it the most.
