This entry is part 285 of 400 in the series CommanderCast

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast! We’re your weekly source Community, Strategy, and Technology! This week Mark and Adam go over Modern Masters 2017 and tricks cards! Don’t know what a trick card is? Well it’s a card that does something you normally wouldn’t see a card of its type do! Some do things in a color that normally that color doesn’t do, some have a alternate way of being cast, and some are just… weird! If that sounds like something that tickles your fancy, Click the Ib!
