Leaving nothing to luck, S5E2 has brought Sean McKeown back on deck along with two other Godo players to ensure we cover the Bandit Warlord’s thug thizzle adequately. Byron and Carlos have both also played everyone’s favourite shirtless yak-riding Commander extensively, while I contribute little if anything as usual. Welcome to CommanderCast.

However, don’t assume we’ve got an whole episode riding on Godo’s yak-piloting capabilities. You know we’re on deck with a variety of subjects as usual; how we’d change the banned list (and what we like on it), some legendary creatures who are great team players, and the second Warhorses segment. This week’s episode is brought to you by General Damage Control, from whom I stole a segment idea. Thanks Cassidy, please don’t beat me up (he looks WAY bigger than me!). Do yourself a favour and check his site out.

And do keep in mind that our Season 5 Contest is in progress. If you have any musical capabilities (this includes yelling into a microphone), then don’t miss your chance to win some of that sweet, sweet pimpness only Derfington can provide.

Show notes and pertinent links below. Enjoy.

Season Five IGNITES THE INTERNET with a jump-off so powerful you might not want to wear headphones. I can’t confirm these reports, but I’ve heard of head explosions and similar messiness resulting for a sheer overload of awesomness. For the Season Five jumpoff, we’ve got myself, Donovan, and Justin on deck with the newest member of the Tactical Podcasting Team, Sean Patchen aka Swords to Plow aka Mr. Accumulated Knowledge. You’ve no doubt seen Sean on CommanderCast, heard him on RedCastWins, and are hopefully already following him on Twitter. If not, this episode should convince you to familiarize yourself with this man because he’s a beast with both keyboard and mic.

So, what does the Tactical Podcasting Team tackle this week? It’s an extensive look at last summer’s newfangled Commander product from all angles. First, we scope the implications it’s had for Commander as a format, as well as local impact on our own groups. Then it’s time for a strategy discussion, seeing how the idea of card advantage as king holds up to some scrutiny. To finish the show, we present an exhaustive hands-on set review of Commander. Our favourite cards, ‘what the fuck’ moments and more all encapsulated in a 40 minute discussion.

In other news, our Season 5 Contest is still in progress. If you have any musical capabilities (this includes yelling into a microphone), then don’t miss your chance to win some of that sweet, sweet pimpness only Derfington can provide. You should also probably check out the ongoing Gifts Given auctions… FOR THE CHILDREN
