Commanders Throwing Holiday Parties: A Study

Pixie Kitten • December 14, 2022

Sometimes when you're looking through Magic cards, you might just have a wild thought pop into your head like, "That creature would throw an AMAZING Christmas party!" And then you start looking through Scryfall for other creatures that seem like they would also throw amazing holiday parties. And now this thought is a full-fledged idea that has manifested into a Cardsphere article. So here we are!

Uhhh... yum?

If we're talking about Legendary creatures only (and in this article, we are), there are a few that immediately stand out as individuals who would throw a huge holiday party every year. And I've added a few that might not seem so obvious at first, but don't worry... I'll explain everything!

Jorn, God of Winter

Jorn, God of Winter posing with some winter ferrets during the Winter Solstice party... in winter.

This one is really obvious. I mean, of course the GOD OF WINTER is going to be throwing a Winter Solstice bash. What god isn't going to be out there celebrating itself! The party theme is typically something like: snow, snowflakes, snow-people, snow animals, ice, icicles, pine trees, the northern lights, frost, or cold.


Putting the finishing touches on the feast!

I feel like this one is also pretty obvious. As someone who loves to cook, I can totally see Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar throwing an over-the-top holiday feast with all kinds of yummy food and treats! I think it's safe to assume that Gyome would be helping out in the kitchen as well.

Xenagos, God of Revels

I'm scared to go to a Xenagos party

Next up is Xenagos, God of Revels who definitely has a party any chance they can get! If I had to guess, I'd say the Xenagos probably has the most wild party ever, starting some time around mid-December that goes all the way through the New Year. Most of the participants don't even remember it (and may not even survive it).

Geist of Saint Traft

"I'm the ghost of Christmas angels... GET IT?!"

This is one that may seem a little strange at first, but hear me out. I like to imagine that Geist of Saint Traft's favorite holiday story is A Christmas Carol, and throwing a themed holiday party about ghosts every year is right up this spirits alley! I would not be surprised if Geist of Saint Traft gets a bunch of spirit friends to help out and do a retelling of the story during the party too.

Kitt Kanto, Mayhem Diva

Champagne for everyone!

A diva loves to throw a party, and I think Kitt Kanto, Mayhem Diva is no different. This cat would throw a swanky, exclusive New Years party that you gotta be on "the list" to get into! And of course the entertainment all night is none other than the diva herself!

Three cheers for Pixie Kitten!!!!!

Well, there you have it! My silly ideas for who would throw the best holiday parties that you didn't ask for and never wanted, BUT YOU GOT ANYWAYS! You have any ideas for other MTG creatures who might throw an amazing holiday party? Find me on Twitter (@PKP_Magic) and let me know!

Wishing you all safe, healthy, and very happy holidays!
