I've got the Fiery Dawn precon deck. Turn 3: Riot Ringleader, Turn 4: Goldnight Commander, Turn 5: Commander's Authority. Turn 6: upkeep - 1/1 human from Com.Auth. and creatures are +1/+1, cast Thatcher Revolt and gain +3/+3, cast Kessig Malcontents, thats 7 humans in play for 7 damage to opponent, and another +1/+1 to all, so now I attack with Riot Ringleader, another +1/+0 to all humans, Ringleader is 8/7, Goldnight Commander is 8/7, token red humans are 6/5 each, 5 attackers on turn 6 for 34 damage. My opponent, playing the Angelic Might precon, who started the turn at 20, is at 13 life after I cast Malcontents, and blocks 2 largest attackers with a Serra Angel and Angelic Wall, takes 18 damage form Thatchers and the loss.

In a best of 3, Fiery Dawn beat Angelic Might 2-1.

Why is no one mentioning how well this card combos with a Descendants path? Or maybe 2? I've had that, it got evil. Throw Commander's Authority on something and you have an army of 4/4s each turn.

I have only one minor complaint to land about this card- This guy's hat does not do himself any justice. Other than that, this is a great card to keep in a soldier or human based deck, or practically any deck that relies on swarming creatures to overpower an opponent.

this guy is a beating; he's not to be underestimated.

My favourite deck right now is based around this , Thatcher Revolt, and Dual Casting. Getting attacked by three 4/4s by turn 5 might be annoying but try getting hit by six 7/7 in turn 6. Of course, if you had a Champion of the Parish out or two before the Goldnight Commander, they'r at least going to be 3/3 and 2/2 each before you play the doubled Thatcher Revolt which gives them six +1/+1 counters on top of the +6/+6 from the commander. There are so many cute tricks you can do with this even if your deck is completely just Avacyn Restored.

Krenko, Mob Boss goes really well with this.

This card is actually surprisingly strong - in the right deck of course.
I run a white weenie deck, and lost count of how many times this card has won me games long ago.
I goes fantasticly with Shrine of loyal legions, Hero of bladehold, midnight hauting (for some combat shenanigans) and lingering souls

4/5 for great combo potential in the right deck.

Put this in my white-weenie deck...

This + Hero of Bladehold

I run this over cathar's crusade in my BW token deck, mainly for the additional synergy with midnight haunting. Totally worth it to see the look on your opponents face when you kill their fatty with a double chump block. :D
