One-Two Punch 5: Gruul

August 15, 2014

This entry is part 5 of 10 in the series One-Two Punch

By Dodo Bird Commander writer Ryan Zeitz

Hey everyone, Rhyno here charging at you with the latest installment of “One-Two Punch”, a 10-part series where I show you 3 powerful card pairs, one 2-color guild at a time.

These are NOT combos in the traditional sense that they instantly K.O. (cuz that’s below the belt). Instead, they’re the jab and the uppercut you need to get back in the fight when your opponents have you cornered.

Green-red is Gruul…Let’s go!

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!

Howdy, Commandercast faithful! Calvin and I are back for the second part to our Gatecrash review! I actually liked how our first parter went, so it’s a shame that this one was recorded first. But don’t worry! Eric and Chris join us to tell me why I’m delusional about some of these cards and tag team to give me a horrible swirly.

Today, we discuss the most aggressive guilds of Ravnica, Boros and Gruul! Plenty of these cards are exactly the kind of thing that get Calvin and I going when it comes to playing dudes and smashing. But which ones make the cut and which ones just disappeared over the past year?

Remember that this week also kicks off the second half of our rotating schedule of column content! Be sure to check back Tues-Fri for more articles and other awesome postings!

 

As always, shownotes are after the Ib!
