Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 291! We’re your weekly source for Community, Strategy, and Technology, hosted on and our homesite:! This week Mark and Adam think your cards are sexy. So sexy, in fact, they’re going to tap that. They’re going to tap it so hard your creature isn’t gonna be able to move until your next upkeep, baby! Basically, they’re going to be going over how to build and play a Stacks deck. I hope you got on some warm underwear to help keep your Winter Orbs safe or you might end up suffering from some blue… mana… I can’t do this anymore…. 

So if you’re down with that all you have to do is click the IB!!!

Keep up with the conversation on Facebook & Twitter.







“The Line”: What’s the line between playable and unplayable in EDH?



  • Vanilla creatures (maybe French Vanilla)
  • Strict upgrades (Dark Banishing to Murder one is obviously better)
  • Creatures played mostly/only for efficiency’s sake (Tarmogoyfs, Wild Nacatls, Kird Apes)
  • Most combat tricks (Giant Growth = sad face)
  • Most life gain spells (Let’s be honest, people…)


Not worth the card slot = one-time use cards lead to card disadvantage over the long term.




Tappin’ Commanders and Tappin’ strats


Are we just playing stax?  YEEAAAH we are.  



Also: Vigilance is pretty good (the keyword, not the card.  The card is total shit.)

Waaah… nobody loves me…




What cards work best in a “tappin’ things down” deck?
