Hello everyone and welcome to Commandercast Episode 185! We’re your weekly source for Community, Strategy, and Technology, hosted on MTGcast.com and our homesite: Commandercast.com! This week William and Clay are joined by Aaron, one of our newest contributors, and Steven, one of the founding members of the format known as Tiny Leaders!

Ah Yeah! We’re all about the converted mana cost of 3 or least today! They discuss how the format was made, why certain cards are banned, what some of the best decks and cards are, and how to compensate for a lack of certain bigger spells.

 

All this and more await with the click of an IB!
