Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 338! This week, Adam is away which means Mark has Mike on once again to go over the topics for the episode today. Today’s topic is based on the idea of playing similar decks and trying to figure out how to separate them. Say you have two decks that’s based on tokens… how do you keep them fun without feeling like you’re playing the same deck again and again?

CommanderCast Episode 338

Keep up with the conversation on Facebook & Twitter.




From Travis’ comment on ep 336:

  • Owning decks with very similar lines of play.
  • What are good parameters for keeping a deck collection smaller?
  • Cockatrice
  • What to do with all of your spare junk?
  • Variation inspiration:




Maybe how to take two similar lists and make them more distinct?


Differentiate by:

  • Budget (2dh)
  • Card choice overlap (Other 99/remove staples)
  • Styles of play, ie. Stax, Mill, Aggro….
  • Colors


Or consolidate both decks into one.

Or try out an “experiment” deck with one of the commanders.
