Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 391! This week Mark and Adam are bringing out the big guns! This week we talk about the Commanders with the biggest CMCs or converted mana cost for those of you who don’t know. But first, the guys go over a few cards from the new Secret Lairs WotC is releasing followed up by a quick chat about the optimal cost for a Commander.

All that, plus our usual interstitial fodder, and all you have to do is Click the IB!!!

Interstitial fodder: 

  • The Color Out of Space rocks. How could you turn down a movie with Nick Cage & Tommy Chong?
  • The correct condiment/topping for french fries?
  • Fuck you, Styx! You’re mediocre at best.

 

 

Strategy

 

Is there an optimal commander CMC? 

 

Factors in “Playability”:

  • Has green in its casting cost?
  • What do you get for the mana?
  • How many times can you comfortably afford to recast it?

  • Adam landed on 3 CMC; Mark is cool with 4 CMC
