Sometimes you want to play a casual game of commander, but the table you are at has other plans. Here is a deck tech that allows you to play casually but allows you to pivot to a more competitive game if needed.

His gain counters ability wants you to play Voltron, but there are better Voltron commanders than Drizzt. I would much rather have Sigarda, Host of Herons who has built in evasion and is difficult to remove than Drizzt as a Voltron commander. However, Drizzt is a commander you can work around to create a counters deck and add some mischievousness to your board.
