This entry is part 7 of 23 in the series Deckbuilder's Spotlight

 

In the first re-installment of an old series, Mark reboots Andy’s video series as a one-on-one podcast that dives deep on a particular deckbuilder and his creation. In this round, he’s talking to Aaron, aka Unclelanddrops, about the genesis of his Glissa, the Traitor deck, how it plays, and how he decided upon its specific type of bling. (Spoiler: if you’re sensitive to terrible art, you may have to avert your eyes from the horror that is this Steel Hellkite promo. Consider yourselves warned.)

I know it’s been quite a while since my last article–almost a year–and I’d be lying if I said it didn’t feel like I’ve been in a reverse Hyperbolic Time Chamber, where it feels like yesterday I was moving to Magic’s Mecca with a handful of decks and a heart full of dreams. I know I haven’t been completely off the grid, but this article makes it official: I’m putting words on the CommanderCast page again!

Outside of Magic, I love popular culture – film, books, sportz, TV, some art – and the best explanation I have for my Netflix binging and critical thinking about the nonsensical is that I memorized a ton of facts from BrainQuest cards and Trivial Pursuit as a kid, which led to me sounding smart, which led to advanced placement classes, and the development of overwhelming analytical skills about silly things, like my theory about the end of Inception, or the theory that the X-Men was an allusion to the civil rights movement in the 1960s. 

 

Although I sound smart, these days there’s not a whole lot of places for all my pop culture nonsense to go – until now. Today, I’m happy to kick off a brand new, pop-infused series of Top 5 lists here on CommanderCast, and if it’s met with even half the enthusiasm of my five person focus group, then I think it’s gonna be sweet.


We’re gonna start easy today with an obvious childhood classic. Five cards that I think would fit easily into any episode of one of my favorite shows growing up: Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?

Grandpa (Eric)

By Eric, AKA Grandpa Growth

 

As far as title questions go, this one is pretty easy to answer. It’s just “yes,” right? We can go home now.

 

If you’re still reading past this point, I can only assume that you’re interested in a deeply philosophical discussion about Command Tower, including some truly unnecessary over-analysis of card design, creator-audience relationships, and the expectations of the Magic fandom.
