Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 303! We’re your weekly source for Community, Strategy, and Technology, hosted on CommanderSociety.com and our homesite: CommanderCast.com! This week it seems Mark and Adam are at it again with the…. underused combat mechanics. This wee they are joined by one of our listeners, Mike, as he attempts to bring us all around to playing with what is currently the only mechanic that gets an 11 on the Maro’s Storm Scale, BANDING!  

So if you’re down with that all you have to do is click the IB!!!

How does banding work?

Why do EDH players love to try to make old, crappy mechanics work?

 

Mike:  First, it reminds me of the Magic I played when I first started.  Secondly, the older mechanics are often confusing and I like to exploit that so I gain an advantage.  

 

Adam

  • Nostalgia
  • See if you can break it
  • fun

 

Strategy:  

 

Mike- mix banding with stuffy doll.

I blocked a 36/36 Thromok the insatiable today that had trample using a Boros reckoner and a timber wolves.  Because of how banding works I got to assign all thirty six of the trample damage straight to the reckoner and kill my opponent with his own commander
