Welcome to CommanderCast’s 100th episode!

Two years after some humble beginnings, we’ve reached this point. The audioscape adventure across the once-wild frontier of EDH has rumbled through all kinds of strange and exotic territories now, picking up and dropping off co-hosts, guests, and contributors as it’s moved. I’d like to think in it’s wake, the virtual caravan has left everyone changed in some way for the positive–more enlightened, more social, better at the game, but above all else entertained and informed.

For this special episode, I’ve assembled CommanderCast’s Centurions: a legion of guests and co-hosts from across the history of the show who have answered the call specifically for this feature. Together, twenty different voices will¬†attack a broad range of subjects. There’s something for everyone in these nine topics, with as many viewpoints as I could squeeze in recording them over almost three months. I hope to¬†take EDH players everywhere into 2013 with a really unique experience. It’s a long one, and there’s a lot in the show notes, so you might want to just sit back and enjoy this one to the fullest with this page at the ready for links and such. Also, there’s lots of ways to get in touch with the various people you’re hearing here. Don’t hesitate to do so to further the discussion.

Thanks to everyone who helped out with the recording and production of the show! I know some of the times were a bit of a hassle so I appreciate all the Centurions putting in a little extra effort to be true Gs and make it to the recordings.

It started out innocently enough but at some point, this beast took on a mind of it’s own.

I’m referring, of course, to our final segment this week. Spoiler alert: Karona, False God Entourage goes big. Big enough that it becomes the first-ever MEGA-ENTOURAGE [explosion]. For more, just listen to the podcast.

Oh yeah, and the rest of it is pretty good too. I tagged in my man Chad from Commander Shenanigans and then also summoned up two of CommanderCast’s mightiest warriors, Sean and Brionne, to throw dirty fire into this cipher. The four of us go over the now-standard wide range of largely audience-suggested topics. We discuss ban-ability of cards and their availability, Sharuum the Hegemon, and also give Chad a little time to pimp his jam before we take it into the Karona joint.

Be sure to tune in next week for our first and only episode entirely devoted to the 1v1 Duel Commander, as well as a special extra podcast dropping on Tuesday.

Well, we recorded this like a week before Griselbrand got banned so a lot of the bitching in the one segment doesn’t seem terribly current today. But that’s ok, because the rest of the episode should still be good. It’s like the ultimate too-slow news outlet: COMMANDERCAST. Just pretend things are in the state they were like four weeks ago and I’m sure you’ll be nodding with approval.

But aside from that segment, this episode contains two epic-sized joints. Make sure you’ve hit the washroom prior to listening (or listen in there, I don’t even give a shit [oh no sick pun]), because there’s so much information it’s possible you’ll have to jettison weight elsewhere to retain it. Myself, Donovan, Carlos and Scotty Mac deliver some club bangers this week. I’m referring to our Commander Profile on Child of Alara (again, a general everyone on the show has played extensively but me), where we look at it from all kinds of angles and builds, followed by an exhaustive hands-on review of Innistrad. By exhaustive, I mean it’s like 45 minutes. Which cards did we love, and which were stinkers? How about the new Legends? Which of the new cards can be called staples?

Do you like oversized cards and new stuff? Then this is the CommanderCast episode for you!

Andy delves deep into the world of Planechase 2012 this week, accompanied by Sean for guidance, Will as the neophyte and Calvin as the enforcer (he can even give abstract ideas #bloodymudholefaces). Together this elite team continues the audioscape adventure of CommanderCast across the new horizons provided by this awesome box set of new planes, phenomena, ninjas, and other crap! We also take a quick break from Planechase-related stuff to speak on Rhys the Redeemed briefly but for the most part, this cast is all-Planechase all the time.
