This week on Rival’s Duel, Eric and Nole are getting pumped for new Journey into Nix spoilers, as well as talking about 5 color Commander decks. Specifically, they are debating which is more broken, 5 color combo decks (mostly revolving around Hermit Druid) or 5 color tribal theme decks, such as the feared? Maligned? Overrated Sliver Overlord tribal decks. As always Shownotes after the break.

Hey everyone! during the Season breaks for this year we intend to try new things. This time William, Calvin, and Kayla sit down around a mic and talk about the flavor, story, and speculation of Magic’s story. This week we talk about The Gorgan and the Guildpact by Doug Beyer, a variety of stories based around Jace, and later we discuss the white planeswalkers and who is the true face White.
If this sounds like your kind of thing, listen to us here or dive into the Risen Download.

By Eric Bonvie and Nole Clauson
Welcome back to another episode of Rival’s Duel. In this episode, Eric and Nole are going pretty deep into the philosophy of EDH, where they will discuss which is better, Battle cruiser magic (where the game is all about big threats, haymakers, and “moments”) or fighter Jet magic (where the about Tempo, pacing, and the feeling of the competitiveness of 60 and 40 card formats). As always, shownotes after the break.

Well ladies and gentlemen, we’ve made it to the end of my first season writing for Commandercast.com. It’s been a learning experience for me with respect to editing and developing content. Before I start waxing philosophically about the adventure that has been being on staff here, I promised a break down on Wizard’s attempt on build a Horde deck. I had the opportunity to setup and operate the Minotaur Horde deck for the Born of the Gods Game Day. From the perspective of a player who likes to develop alternative formats (something I’d hoped to address more this season), I really do feel Wizards missed the mark, badly, like shooting the Empire state building when you’re aiming for the Space needle.

Commandercast’s season break is coming up. And even though I will still be doing Rivals’ Duel with Nole during the break, I will have some time off where I wont be putting up bi-weekly articles about commander. In the spirit of the vacation, I will be suggesting some things that you can do if you also feel like taking a break from commander!
BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Break from commander! That’s the funniest joke I’ve made all season! People have kicked drug habits easier than giving up this game.
But sometimes you are forced to take a break for a few minutes. These are the unfortunate gaps that happen between commander games where a couple people have died but the game hasn’t yet finished. What I am actually suggesting today are a handful of games you can bring around your weekend edh-athons, so you have something to do to burn time between these games and avoid getting all Magic-ed out.
