Salutations, CommanderCast-onians! I am Aaron aka Uncle Landdrops, one of Da Cast’s newest writers.

I’m super excited about Fate Reforged as I’m sure you are, too.  This time, I thought I would dive into the world of Warriors (although this will be more of a commander feature, I do plan on decking it out with a lot of warriors), featuring the new Khan Alesha, Who Smiles at Death.
