Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 475! With spring coming, Covid-19 restrictions being lowered or removed, and stores trying to go back to normal tournament play…(Yes I’ve waited literal years to lay this egg… let me have this) It’s time to put the Gathering back in Magic! This week Mark and Adam are going over In-Store Events. Your LGS needs you now more than ever and the best way they can get you out of your bed and into some folding chairs is to offer you a chance to… put stickers on a poster… look I did say it was a great idea ok! Today we first look at what some of those events are, some from the past that might be better, and voice our opinions on if it’s worth doing at all. We then take a quick look at ways to shore up some of your game plans for when your Commander is out to lunch. Secondary win strategies, back-up Commanders, and more will be discussed in order to help you sneak in more wins. We wrap things up with a quick look at an article from Ben Bleiweiss over at Star City Games where he talks about the Top 25 WORST cards in Magic.

All that, plus our usual interstitial fodder, and all you have to do is Click the IB!!!

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 474! This week Mark and Adam ask the question, what happened to Theme Decks? There was once a time where WotC would release two decks to play against each other and the deck would have some kind of theme to them. There would be Elves vs Goblins, Nature vs Inventions, or Fire vs Ice. You might even see two Planeswalkers going at it. Sure WotC still releases premade decks with the Commander, Challenger, and Pioneer decks… but what happened to the Theme Decks? Today we first look at Theme Decks and try to figure out why they disappeared from the yearly rotation. We then take a quick look at the new Reconfigure mechanic from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty. Is there enough juice in these cards to quench our thirst or are they dryer than a raisin? We wrap things up with a quick look at another tribe that might be of interest, Fox tribal!

We then take a quick look at what we feel are the cards we would use to build a deck based around Sagas. We wrap it up with a quick look at what could be an interesting new kind of tribal deck in Moonfolks.
