Peer Through Time is a 100 card Commander preconstructed deck, featured in Commander 2014. It is monocolor blue.[1]


“  The planeswalker commander Teferi, Temporal Archmage uses his influence over time itself to warp the rules of engagement. When playing the “Peer Through Time” deck, you’ll use tricky spells, hidden information, and political manipulation to control the game.

Your goal is to stay out of the fray while your opponents soften each other up, then move in for the kill when your foes are at their most vulnerable. While you lie in wait, Teferi helps you find the cards you need, generate the mana to cast important spells by untapping your lands and mana-producing artifacts, protect your life total by untapping creatures to use as blockers.

In the beginning of the game, focus on building up your resources. Cast mana-producing artifacts if you have them, or find them using spells that let you dig through your library. Your creatures with morph ability are excellent to cast face-down early in the game—you can turn them face up later to take advantage of their abilities that draw cards, disrupt your opponent, and more.

Once your adversaries begin to establish threatening armies, it’s often best to keep some mana available on opponents’ turns, as your instant spells like Turn to Frog and Domineering Will can turn an attack against you into a devastating rout. In addition, cards like Assault Suit and Crown of Doom will encourage your opponents to attack each other instead of you. When it comes time to deliver the deathblow, you will have plenty of enormous creatures, and Cackling Counterpart and Rite of Replication can turn a single threat into a game-winning army. Once you’ve assembled a lethal attack force, Æther Gale or Cyclonic Rift can clear the way for you to finish off an opponent.
