Hello and welcome to another episode of Rival’s Duel. It’s finally time for Eric and Nole (who, by incredibly bad luck, recorded their last episode the day before the full spoiler came out) to review the Commander 2014 product. They also talk about the huge amount of fan mail they received full of “let’s build” suggestions. As always, full shownotes after the break.

Greetings everyone! This week’s Dusters was inspired by CommanderCast Ep 172. While I was listening to that episode the idea came to me and I immediately drew the last panel as soon as I got home because it amused me to no end, but it was not until just recently that I was finally able to finish the whole strip. As always I hope you enjoy the comic and thanks checking it out.

Hello everyone and welcome to Commandercast Episode 175! We’re your weekly source for Community, Strategy, and Technology, hosted on MTGcast.com and our homesite: Commandercast.com! We’re recording this on November 13, 2014. This week William, Calvin, Mark, and Clay talk about one of the Big Bads in Commander, the aura loving Yeti himself…
That’s right we’re talking about Uril, the miststalker, 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!

There’s an art to denying resources to your opponents in a social game that simply doesn’t need to exist in other formats. No one in a Legacy tournament would so much as bat an eyelash before casually Strip Mine-ing your mana base like some two-bit Captain Planet villain on a weekend bender in the rainforest, but not so in EDH.
We care too much to do that to our fellow Commander players (and we don’t want to incur the wrath of Captain Planet, either).
More precisely, we care too much about being invited back to play another game with our fellow Commander players, so we take care not to flip the idiom and bring the proverbial gun to a friendly knife fight. Some say that this takes too many of the big bombs out of mono-red’s arsenal, leaving it with barely enough tools to defend itself from even the casual roughhousing of your average EDH playgroup, let alone a viable way to win, but I prefer to say that it merely forces the enterprising red mages amongst us to be a bit more creative.
