CommanderCast Episode 331

Posted: August 22








Keep up with the conversation on Facebook & Twitter.




Scryfall acquires; CommanderCast weeps.


C18 full deck lists spoiled


New cards we’re excited for:


Solid reprints:






Why a lower mana curve is important and why the mana curve of your deck is probably too high (this originally autocorrected to “man’s curve,” by the way, and doubtless would have resulted in a much different segment).



  • Draw, ramp, and removal should cost 3 or less.
  • Make cuts from the top of the curve first (and pair down redundancy here, too).




Return of an old segment: “Break My Card”


Cards that seem like they might have “Johnny potential,” but need a little help to work.
