THE REALEST SHIT

This week on CommanderCast Andy is BRINGING THE INFORMATIONS with Adam and Donovan. Providing us with fierce backup we have Bennie Smith, who started writing about Magic like a week before the Big Bang or something. This week he has decided to grace our podcast with his presence. To investigate Bennie’s body of work, one need go no further than StarCityGames.com, where his long history of authorship is chronicled (they’re still translating some of the stuff he wrote on animal skins with his own blood… this is metal). He is the best advocate for Commander as a format on one of Magic’s biggest websites, and that’s a pretty big deal.

Better late than DEAD!

This week Andy, Jeremiah and Carlos are bursting through your speakers and into your ears with the latest edition of CommanderCast. Joining us, we have a guest; Neale of WrongWayGoBack, acclaimed Commander blogger, Aussie living in Hong Kong, and the ONLY guest who swears more than me. This episode is a bit more… uh… ‘unbuttoned’ than usual, so be advised, there’s a bit of strong language up in here.

As a reminder in case you read the show noes and don’t listen to the podcast (YOU ARE A WEIRDO), we’re running our Season 2 Contest right now! Be sure to check out the rules and submit YOUR Secret Tech for the chance to win our superb, fully-decided-upon prize; a custom art card from Derfington (check him out doing his thug thizzle on ManaDeprived)!
Also, remember to vote on the next restriction for Carlos’ DECKBUILDING CHALLENGE! Last restriction decided on was a $40 budget; now, we’re working out the colours. Vote for 5C, tri-, bi-, or mono-coloured this week in the poll in the upper-left corner!

Once again CommanderCast is joining forces with another independent intertron Magic the Gathering venture; this time, our partner in SICK ASS PODCAST CONTENT PRODUCTION is Shoe of WOOBERG.com, a site devoted to alternative formats for Magic the Gathering. This episode we’re beginning our series on discussing alternative ways to play Commander, so I figured Shoe is the closest thing to an expert on the topic I can think of. Hopefully, you agree with me and check out his own site. It’s pretty rad.

Otherwise, we got some exciting stuff jumping off this week, including the downright TREACHEROUS Season 2 contest; the return of the Free-For-All Roundtable; two-headed giant stuff; and a thing on free cards (no, I’m not doing a giveaway… yet).

Andy, Adam, Jeremiah and Carlos charge into your ears this week in another very special episode of CommanderCast. We’ve got a diverse range of subjects this week so I hope you like variety (or at least as much as a super narrowly-focused podcast can muster up). This week Adam moves from a logical continuation of discussing his theory on overhyped value engines to a new Pressure Decks archetype discussion; Carlos is starting a NEW deckbuilding challenge akin to the $30 Wrexial Challenge from last season; and Jeremiah is getting us all rich with his league setups. We’ve got a new listener-suggested segment premiering featuring the one and only Ib Halfheart. Even I am bringing something to the table in a rare twist of fate championing Treasure Mage (SCIENCE!) over Trinket Mage.

Our episode this week continues the trend of being pre-recorded from a while ago, so I hope nobody is offended by this.

CommanderCast is back with another ear-soothing saga of cards, mans, and the women who love them. Minus the last part (there’s no girls on the internet!). On the mic this week spitting into this cipher of HOT FIRE, I am joined by Byron, Carlos (emerging from the Arcane Lab covered in… stuff), and newcomer Levi who is my new Japanese connect. Levi is a longtime listener and also has a pretty sweet accent, so you know that’s a HUGE plus.
As a heads up, this is a ‘canned episode’ we recorded during the transition between seasons 1 and 2, so there’s nothing time-sensitive or anything in here. Don’t be expecting cutting-edge news or topics here, even if I did just get back from Pax East (which was awesome).

In a VERY SPECIAL CommanderCast episode we’ve managed to track down Alex, aka Ban Ki-Moon, who is a member of the mysterious and quite possibly treacherous Commander Rules Committee. When he agreed to come on the show, we asked around for what you guys wanted to know about the RC… and today we’re asking your questions (along with a few of our own). I was worried about his fabled RC school internet techniques, so I brought Adam, Donovan and Byron as human shields. They proved to be pretty good in discussion as well as protecting my person, which is valuable knowledge.

Of course that’s not all we’re up to this week. We’re also talking to Alex about theme decks, as he is rolling with perhaps the most ballinest EDH theme deck in recent history, the H.P. Lovecraft Adventure deck. There’s some other typical stuff in here too. You probably know how we roll at this point.
