We discuss our “fearless inventory”; our take on our weaknesses as Magic/Commander players, based on Sam Stoddard’s article, “Creating a Fearless Magical Inventory.”


Adam’s full Inventory



  • I tend to run shit out on my first main phase like a derp.
  • Try new archetypes.



  • Quit playing with so many staples (re: “Staple Remover”)
  • Drawing more cards, in every color combination.




How we’re going to enact on our New Year’s resolutions.



  • Update the “maybe list” for each deck, after each new set is released.
  • Spend more time analyzing mulligans.



  • Revisit all of my decks, especially blue, to free up space for newer creative ideas.
  • Draw more cards in other colors, ala Carrier Pigeons



  • Sit on my mana.
  • Play more paper Magic.
