Hello everyone and welcome to Commandercast Episode 194! We’re your weekly source for Community, Strategy, and Technology, hosted on MTGcast.com and our homesite: Commandercast.com! We’re recording this on April 2nd, 2015. This week William, Calvin, Clay, and Aaron are joined by Matt from Squirecast as we take a look at the MARDU Clan! That’s right! This week, we’re talking about the color combination with the best removal package in town. We talk about why playing aggressive can be the key to changing the way your playgroup needs for those long, slow games, we get into the pros and cons of the Mardu, and we wrap things up with a Deck Entourage centered around using both versions of Zurgo!
