The Finisher

It’s a Companion’s world, we’re just living in it. A deck’s new best friend is all the rage these days, as the honeymoon phase of Magic’s newest broken mechanic hasn’t worn off yet. We all expect Geruda, Jegantha, Kaheera, Keruga, Lurrus, Lutri, Obosh, Umori, Yorion, and Zirda to be the bee’s knees until they rotate or find a banning in basically every format they’re played in, but tell me: if you were a companion, what would you do?
