Grandpa (Eric)

By Eric, AKA Grandpa Growth

 

Hello and welcome back to “Decksplanations.” Over the last couple of weeks we have been talking about how I approach increasing the power levels of my decks. So far we have covered the concepts of:

 

  • Solidarity – Focusing on what you do best and maximizing your chances of achieving it, removing elements that don’t advance your gameplan.
  • Durability – The ability to overcome the most common obstacles that would prevent your victory. Be difficult to stop.
  • Interactivity –  Capitalizing on interaction advantage. Be superior to your opponents in the ways that matter most and capitalize on their weaknesses.
  • Proactivity – Begin to pursue your game plan immediately and be able to punish opponents with slower draws and decks. Fill use disruption to preemptively disable key cards from your opponent and slow down their plan even further.

 

As always, the information that I’m presenting compliments and builds on what I’ve already discussed in the series. If you missed the previously posted articles I encourage you to go back and read them, if not start at the very beginning of “Decksplanations.” Today we are discussing the fourth of five parts of power: value. Let it begin!

Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of Journey To Somewhere, a  bi-weekly podcast where William will be recording an episode for you from his car as he travels from one location to… somewhere.

This week, William discusses the age old question… What happened to Andy, The OG Owner and Host of Commandercast? Now keep in mind that this episode was recorded back before episode 201 of Commandercast was recorded. While somethings William brings up have changed, the main topic is something we felt was a little too close to the things we discussed on episode 200. So with that, we held on to this one until enough time pasts that this topic wouldn’t be lost to time in the shadow of episode 200. So with that….

Buckle Up & Start The Journey HERE!

Outside of Magic, I love popular culture – film, books, sportz, TV, some art – and the best explanation I have for my Netflix binging and critical thinking about the nonsensical is that I memorized a ton of facts from BrainQuest cards and Trivial Pursuit as a kid, which led to me sounding smart, which led to advanced placement classes, and the development of overwhelming analytical skills about silly things, like my theory about the end of Inception, or the theory that the X-Men was an allusion to the civil rights movement in the 1960s. 

 

Although I sound smart, these days there’s not a whole lot of places for all my pop culture nonsense to go – until now. Today, I’m happy to kick off a brand new, pop-infused series of Top 5 lists here on CommanderCast, and if it’s met with even half the enthusiasm of my five person focus group, then I think it’s gonna be sweet.


We’re gonna start easy today with an obvious childhood classic. Five cards that I think would fit easily into any episode of one of my favorite shows growing up: Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?

Aren't we all overcosted vanilla creatures when you get down to it?
