Ericrdorange smallnolenew90Hello Everyone and welcome to another episode of Rival’s Duel. In this episode, Eric is under the weather and been doing Nyquil bombs before recording. However the show must go on. Rather than have some argument that Nole would easily win (seriously, you have no idea how much awkward pauses had to be cut out of here) the rivals decide rather to go retro and talk about Wizards’ first foray into the commander swimming pool and talk about how the original 2011 precon commanders have stood the test of time. Give it a listen and let us know what you think about the commanders in the comments below. As always, full shownotes after the break.

Hey there Commandercast faithful! In my attempt to keep the columns rolling while we recruit and work with applying writers, I’m back again to climb atop my soap box and preach the good word of Commander!


“If you aren’t making everyone hate you, you’re doing it wrong”.


How many times have I heard that lately? How many times lately have I seen people who are more interested in playing games where their only goal is to make life miserable for other people? I’ve had to play against a couple of those people in the past few months, one of which is in my regular playgroup.


In the game of Commander, we all want to do awesome things. We all have different ideas for what “awesome” means to us though. For the most part, we can hash it out before or after a particularly unpleasant game., but even socially acceptable decks can be used to make plays that leave one or two people saltier than a beach and sometimes people are just trying to defend themselves with whatever tools they have.

Hello everyone and welcome to Commandercast! We’re your weekly source for Community, Strategy, and Technology, hosted on MTGcast.com and our homesite: Commandercast.com! Thise week william and the guys forgot to record an episode, but that’s OK because The Captain has a backup.  A few episodes ago we did a podcast that came out really bad due to audio issues. It was an episode we recorded on November 13, 2014. It had William, Calvin, Mark, and Clay talking about one of the Big Bads in Commander, the aura loving Yeti himself…





That’s right we were talking about Uril, the Miststalker. Well do to a Christmas miracle, we were able to find a second copy of that episode and Calvin was able to re-edit it and make it listenable! So prepare yourself as we talk about why people hate him, what you can do to deal with him, and a few suggestions on how to keep him around when no one else ever wants him. All this and more with the click of an Ib!
