This entry is part 281 of 335 in the series CommanderCast

Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of CommanderCast! This week Mark and Adam break out the rocking chairs and have a good time reminiscing about the old days. The days when we got terrible sets, cards were weird, and we liked it. Prepare to go over some of, if not THE, worst sets in Magic’s history. So site back, relax, and come join us on the porch as we tell you of a time when men played real Magic!

What is the worst set in Magic History for Commander?

 

Adam –

 

Mark –

  • M14
    • No Legends
    • Meh set
    • On the bright side: introduced Shadowborn Apostles
  • Legions
    • Only three Legends (Mistform Ultimus, Akroma, and Phage)
    • No nonbasic lands
    • Thumbs up: the Muse cycle
    • Thumbs down: practically every other card in the set.

 

Strategy:  

 

The case for playing sub-optimal cards

 

Technology:

Old weird stuff people might not expect

 

Adam – mystic remora, koskun falls, tawnos coffin, alchor’s tomb

 

Mark – Riptide Shapeshifter naming “Eldrazi,” Seedtime, Hunting Grounds, Monsoon
