This entry is part 23 of 542 in the series CommanderCast
Posted by ANDY aka GHoooSTS
CommanderCast is doing another CHEAP PROMOTIONAL CROSSOVER with Mr. Scotty Mac from the Eh Team, just like last season’s episode 10 installment. I also brought Carlos and Byron along to form like Voltron and assemble into a singlular entity of knowledge-spewing, audi-producing, podcast-publishing excellence.
The Season 2 Contest has also come to an end! If you didn’t get your entry in before I posted this, WHY DID YOU WAIT SO LONG!? Anyway, stay tuned for the upcoming CIRCLE OF JUDGMENT and announcement of the contest winner! Remember, we’re not only slinging out a sick custom card altered by my man Derfington, but you could also win a vandalized card by none other than myself in the style of Malfegor, the Flying V!
Finally, the upper-left corner holds the final restriction for Carlos’ Deckbuilding Challenge; a choice of general! Make your vote count in this historic event in Commander deckbuilding (cough).

Show notes and links below. Enjoy.



00:00 to 02:42: Intro: We are introducing ourselves, providing a bit of a preview to the Mid-Week Update, and a reminder about the contest.

05:29 to 24:24Community: Deckbuilding Challenge: Pick the general for Carlos’ upcoming deck!

05:29 to 24:24Community Spotlight: drrob132’s List Thingy!: In an amazing bit fo work done out of the pure goodness of his heart, drrob132 has compiled over 1500 decks from MtG: Salavation’s Commander forums into a single downloadable file! This .zip file contains these decks in the .dec format, usable in Apprentice and Cockatrice. Check it out!

02:52 to 05:18: Community: Netdecking: With the dawn of the webternets, we saw the rise of th ‘net decking’ phenomenon. How does this impact Commander, as a format? Is the internet a good place to get deck advice? What are the ups and downs, and where does the stigma of the ‘net decker’ come from?

25:43 to 39:07: Strategy: Archetype Rundown: The Rock/Attrition: Scott is a local celebrity when it comes to attrition strategies with his Teneb, the Harvester deck. I thought I might as well pick his brain about it while he’s up in this piece.

56:14 to 72:53: Technology: Hands-On Review: Scars of Mirrodin: Armed with adequate experience, we are now reviewing Scars of Mirrodin. “But Andy, this is mad late!” True, but it’s also based on real experience instead of speculation and theorycraft. Anyway, we all listed a card that lived up to expectations, a card that was a big old flop, and a card that is surprisingly good.
Byron’s Picks: Skithiryx is really sweet, Argentum Armor was a dud, and Steel Hellkite surpassed expecations
Carlos’ Picks: Venser, the Sojourner met the hype, Asceticism flopped, and Nim Deathmantle is the best thing ever (even better than air)
Scott’s Picks: Genesis Wave worked out, Sword of Body and Mind didn’t, Kuldotha Forgemaster surprised him
Andy’s Picks: Exsanguinate is obviously good, Hoard-Smelter Dragon was less-obviously-not-good, Culling Dias is a hidden gem
81:55 to closing: Outtro.
