Welcome back to another season of CommanderCast. Last season I covered laughably bad magic art as well as awesome alters in my Massive Art Attack series. This season I’ll be focusing more on the commander format itself. I still want to highlight great altered cards from time to time, but it won’t be the focus of this season’s writing. In Staple Remover I’ll be covering how to make your commander decks more entertaining and budget friendly. I’ve started powering down my decks, and you can too! It’s a blast. Get those EDH “staples” out of your deck because I’m about to get real weird with it. This week, for my first article of the season I’ll introduce you to the concept of the $0.00 deck.
“You suck, your deck sucks, and your face sucks.” Jack fumed as his opponent’s general ticked his poison counters up to ten.
“Maybe a slight overreaction?” Jill responded coolly as she picked up her Skithiryx deck.
“No it’s not, poison is cheap. You should knock my life total down the legitimate way.”
“Really?” Jill said, giving a pointed and skeptical look at Jack’s general. He had opened the foil Trostani, Selesnya’s Voice during the Return to Ravnica prerelease, and quickly built a powerful life gain deck around the card. It was not uncommon for Jack to end up with a life total that broke triple digits.
“Fine, fair point.” Jack conceded. “But there are alternatives.You can always just kill me with general damage!”
Jill just smirked and replied “I did.”

So, it looks like I have a column now.
Hmm… Where to start? This is the first thing I’m writing here, so it should probably be some type of introduction, something semi-biographical to tell you a bit about who I am, right? Ok then…
My legend begins in the 12th century… Huh? No? Fine…
Ok, basic information… That stuff is boring, I’d probably skip over it and scroll until I saw some real content or a picture or something… Fine, I’ll give you both!

Hello everyone and welcome back the (Social) Contract from Below. As always, I am your host Nole Clauson and I will be walking all of you through the fine print that is written on the social contract that makes our format so unique.
This season on Social Contract, I want to try something a little different. While we are still going to be talking about the social contract, I want to take some time this season to tackle a single issue. In doing so, I’m going to need your help.

This week we take a dive into the altered art of Xela. Xela is a Magic enthusiast and card alterist whom I have had the pleasure to meet through a mutual friend. The first time I had a chance to flip through the binder of works she has done, I was amazed by how crisp and vibrant her works was. I hope you enjoy her work as much as I have. There are plenty of pretty pictures to look at, so lets dive in.
