Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 351! We are your weekly source for community, strategy, and technology hosted each and every week on Commandercast.com! On this  week’s episode Mark is joined by Mike as Adam is apparently taking a nap in parts unknown. Speaking of unknown parts, this week the guys talk about spells with an unknown part which is only limited to the value of X. X-Spells can be some of the more powerful and dangerous spells within the game. I mean 10 mana is 10 mana but an X can be anything… it could even be 10 mana!

Part IX: Deck Hate

What’s that you say?  You are unfamiliar with this concept?  Well, for but a sliver of your soul, I will share the eldritch corners of my favorite color with you.  This is not the first time I have said this, but for the right cost, Black can do just about anything in Magic – to include this one thing that no other color really does.  (Well, Blue has one really good card in Supreme Inquisitor, but I digress.)

 

Deck hate cards are just that: they hate on the cards in your opponents’ decks and remove them preemptively from the game before they even have a chance to draw/tutor for them.  It’s a prophylactic approach that’s not as popular as it should be since such spells don’t have an immediate effect on the board.

 

As such, the effect is hard to quantify because the stock and trade of these types of cards are plays that are NOT made by your opponents because you exiled that card before they got to them.  Just because they are hard to analyze though does not mean you should eschew them. They’re great in certain configurations depending upon how you play Black. Further, all of the below cards are affordable, with Bitter Ordeal being the most expensive at about $8 as of this writing.
