 …I did it. I FINALLY DID IT!!! I finally managed to record a show with an international guest! Woo hoo!

 

Today, from across the pond, I’m bringing you some radio time with the cosplay wonder that is Aranel. She’s a wonderful fan of both Magic and Commander, so having her own was an absolute no brainer. Yes, it was difficult working around extreme time zones, but that’s okay! We’ll spend some time just chatting and doing some PR work for her stuff.

 

Captain Redzone joins us for the second week in a row. Why? Because I can and he’s that awesome, that’s why.

 

We also finish up some Gatecrash parallels with our retro cycle review on Gatecrash guilds with their old legends!

As always, shownotes, links, and download link are below.

 This week was quite tiring. Between tuning up my decks for GP Pittsburgh, learning rules for my new judge-trainingness, and editing the show, AND trying to get a special guest on for an episode down the line, I’ve been pretty dog gone tired. But everything’s okay!

 

Even if we spontaneously lose an arm, we’ll still working hard to bring you your weekly community, strategy, and technology!

 

This week sees the return of Calvin aka Captain Redzone, whom I love very much (no homo). We also get to hear from Robert, Elder Mastery writer, and fellow Power Rangers fan (I always approve of fellow ranger fans).

As always, shownotes, links, and download link are below.

Cyber Space…the final frontier. These are the voyages of the U.S.S. Commandercast. They’re ongoing mission: to seek out new games and to boldly go where no scrub has gone before!

 

Starring: William as Capt. Jean Sparrow Ahab, Christian as Counselor Troi, and special guest star: Tom of MTGradio!

 

This week, we’re exploring the wide frontier of Magic The Gathering: Online! Yes, I know there are lots of people upset that Cockatrice is down (unless you know where their back-up servers are), but that doesn’t mean that Wizards is a horrible company out to crush all of the so-called “competition”.

 

…..or, at least everyone outside of Hasbro’s legal department.

Hello folks! I hope you’re all hungry, because this episode is HUGE!

 

My guys, David Lee (aka the grand celestial arcduke of pimpology and lord of ALL the arts) and Karston of TopandGo Productions are joining me as we attempt something never done before on this podcast: a Retro Set Review of the Tempest set!

 

Sure, we’ve got some speculation on the new From the Vault: Twenty, and some tips on counterspells, but seriously, THIS IS ALMOST ALL SET REVIEW.

 Another week, another podcast about cardboard wizards, legendary dragons, and the futuristic voodoo that we do so well. This week, we’re introducing the next generation of Commandercast volunteers by having Chris and Nole join me for initiation to the world of podcasting.

Both of these boys have done me proud so far, and I’m real proud of how they’ve contributed to the website so far. Check out their columns “Massive Art Attack” and “The Contract from Below” I'm not ashamed of this at all.

Hey all! Everyone enjoy Valentine’s Day? I know I sure did (doesn’t hurt when you have the best boyfriend ever), but since that was very much on my mind as I was editing, I included a little bonus segment at the end where I praise a little something for the people out there who aren’t as busy on v-day as they’d like to be.

 

As for today’s episode, we’re bringing Andrew Magrini back to talk about his Edric deck (with some support by Cory and Nick), introduce a new segment, handle the delicate hearts of newbies, and break a few rules regarding card discussion (HINT: it involves Gatecrash!).

As always, shownotes, links, and download link are below.
