Hello Commandercast staple listeners! If you’re like being tricky, sneaky, and stabbing your foes while their back is turned, then you’ll just love today’s Dimir episode!

Wait….I could’ve sworn it said Dimir on the schedule. How’d we switch to Gruul? ANYWAYS, it was a fun episode to record all the same!

Subtlety, thy name is not Gruul

Rival’s Duel host Eric Bonvie joins us, as does rookie staff writer Jonathan Marshall.

Truth be told, I’m not that big an expert on running wild and smashing everything in site so I’m going to hit these tribal elders up for some wisdom that I hope helps you guys out too. We’ll look at Bloodthirst and bloodrush, general Gruul stratedgies (surprisingly more complex than just SMASH), and share some of our favorite Gruul tech.

It’s a new guild format right after the Ib!

Hello everyone out there! This week on the Spawning Pool, we’re trying something a little different. We wanted to know what would happen if you combined Eric, Calvin, two 6 packs of beer, a random Magic set, an open Commandercast studio, and some free time? Well, what we ended up with was The 6 Pack Set Review!!!

 

The realization looked a lot like this.

 

So if you’re into drunken Magic talk continue on! Also…. BYOB.

This entry is part 5 of 7 in the series Up! Your! Deck!

378127_10150441621792624_1477312954_nWell done, Eric. So much for getting this article up last week. Y’know, like you said you would. 

You freaking dunce.

No, it’s cool. I can totally fix this!

How’s that? Did you not post the article because you were too busy building a time machine? That you can now use to go back and post the article?

… Noooo.

WELL THEN WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO, GENIUS!?

I was thinking I could make it up to them by giving them a preview of an upcoming theme week? In addition to the article?

… That might work. Maybe.

Okay, how about a preview, an article, and a deck list?

Alright, that will have to do. Oh, and Eric?

What?

Stop talking to yourself. It’s frigging weird.

I don't know what he's talking about, man. Seems perfectly healthy to me.

Chances are that when you listen to this week’s episode, you’ll notice that I, William, am not on it. Why not? Well, let’s just say that making sure family gets taken care of is a higher priority for me than sitting around and talking to a bunch of nerds. Fortunately, one of those nerds is more than capable of picking up the reigns when I need to step out.

Calvin brings Cassidy back on poste haste to fill the gap so that Eric can join them and everyone enjoy the sick sadism that is….RAAAAAKDOOOOOS~ Come on in and hear what happens when you mix two horrible mechanics together (as far as EDH goes), and find out why everyone’s going to hate your guts.

Shownotes after the Ib.

This entry is part 116 of 407 in the series CommanderCast

If you don’t know already, one of my goals here at Commandercast is to incite discussion and debate among our readers, listeners, and heaps of fans. Sometimes, however, a debate so great rages up between Commandercast staff that we have to duke it out, on air, in front of everyone.

 

This is one of those times.

 

Today, we’re joined by Eric of (Vexing) Devil’s Advocate who’s prepared to enter the ring with me as we smackdown over the Maelstrom Wanderer. Speaking of smackdowns, we’re also bringing back COMMANDER SMACKDOWN! Tonight’s feature match-up: Ghave vs. Animar. Don’t you miss it!

Maybe if you check out the show notes, you’ll see some cute little doodles I’m experimenting with.
As always, shownotes, links, and download link are below.
