Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 256! We’re your weekly source for Community, Strategy, and Technology, hosted on MTGcast.com and our homesite, CommanderCast.com! This week Mark & Clay are joined by Nick to discuss house rules, mastering the art of the “Rube Goldberg” deck, and what ended up being an unfortunately-titled Technology segment.  See what happens when you try to get cute when naming these things?

Community: Free-for-all-Roundtable – “House Rules!”  What’s the equivalent of “Free Parking” in your meta?  What happens when house rules butt up against the Rules Committee?  And, of course, the most contentious of all house rules: to allow takesies-backsies or not?

 

Mulligans?

 

House Bans?

Technology:

 

Best/Favorite Achilles’ Heel cards (think “best Red card draw” or “best Blue removal spells”; the best cards in a color’s weakest area).
