Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 393! This week Mark and Adam are burning down the countryside as they discuss the hottest Burn based cards in our format! But first, we talk about the latest product release from WotC with lands so expensive you might have to pay property taxes for them.

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

  • Do you need Fetch lands in Commander?
    • Making Fetch Happen – Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition
    • Per mothership: 
      • Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition will contain one non-foil copy of each of these cards, and you can only get the grouping of five at your local game store starting May 29. Copies are limited—stores will typically receive no more than 10 copies of Ultimate Edition—so make sure to check with your local game store.”

Strategy

 

Playing Burn in EDH

 

Totally stealing Stephen’s metric & updating it for 2020: using “decks that play Comet Storm” as a metric for Burn decks in EDH.

HOT TAKE: 

 

Pros:

  • Can pull sudden wins out of nowhere

 

Cons:

  • Finite resources
  • You’re on a clock
  • Super mana-intensive
  • Needs recursion and/or a lot of draw
  • Needs supporting strategy (ramp, copy effects, etc.)
