This week’s Dusters is called “the Banned List Update.”    I had not intended to have another appearance by the Commander Commander so soon, and especially not in back to back webcomic strips, but the announcement of the Banned List simplification and unbannings screamed for his inclusion.  I was actually working on completely different Dusters at the time when the announcement happened and that one has now been pushed back a week or two (woohoo another weeks worth of content).  As always I hope you enjoy this week’s Dusters and feel free to follow on Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter if you so choose.

Hello everyone and welcome to Commandercast Episode 166! We’re your weekly source for Community, Strategy, and Technology, hosted on and our homesite:! This week William is joined by Clay, JT Kamp, Mark, and after a week off, Calvin!



Surrak Dragonclaw


We talk more about Khans of Tarkir! We discuss the flavor and reasons behind the wedges. We talk about the last of the five Clan leader, Surrak Dragonclaw! Which is kind of a weird name since he claerly is wearing bear claws but whatever. We then wrap the show up with a few other cards from the spoilers! All this plus a ton of end-show bonus content and all you have to do is click the IB!

People love to hate on the mono-blue player and not without good reason. I have four mono-blue decks myself, but even I cast the stinkeye upon anyone who saunters up to a table and drops down ninety-nine cards with Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir at the helm.


We all know it’s no accident they chose that color for the box

With the advent of the new monochromatic Commander product this year, I thought it would a good time to share some decidedly non-dickish things you can do to offset the straight up prejudice that’ll be leveled at you by sitting down with the one color that we’ve all hated on at some point.

One-Two Punch: Golgari

September 12, 2014

By Dodo Bird Commander writer Ryan Zeitz


Hey everyone, Rhyno here charging at you with the seventh installment of “One-Two Punch”, a 10-part series where I show you 3 powerful card pairs, one 2-color guild at a time.

These are NOT combos in the traditional sense that they instantly K.O. (cuz that’s below the belt). Instead, they’re the jab and the uppercut you need to get back in the fight when your opponents have you cornered.

Green-black is Golgari…Let’s go!

When I first pitched my idea for an article series to the staff here at CommanderCast, I was immediately met with apprehension and worry. The main point of concern was that “fun” as a concept is too abstract, malleable and contentious. There are too many different factors that contribute to this topic of discussion, and it would be impossible to find a suitable middle ground with which to resonate with our readership.

Of course, these are the same people who dubbed me “KT Kamp” for my first published article on their Facebook cross-post.

Ericrdorange smallnolenew90Hello Everyone and welcome to another episode of Rival’s Duel. This week, Eric and Nole are fully aboard the KTK hype train. To prepare for the wedge shaped awesomeness that is Khans of Tarkir, they are evaluating which off color wedge is the best, regardless of general. Take a listen and let us know what you think! As always, full shownotes after the break.
