CommanderCast Episode 398

Posted: April 20, 2020








Keep up with the conversation on Facebook & Twitter.




Commanders from Ikoria


Interstitial fodder: 

  • Community is back on Netflix.
  • Pronunciation of “Mako” and other things that make me angry.
  • Pie, round 2 was a success, but the store-bought crust was not.
  • FF7 Remake might be my favorite Final Fantasy game ever (Also: best darts mini-game in the history of video games)




How many counters are too many counters? 

The answer is twelve. A dozen counters is too many counters.


  • The problem with keywords as counters
  • Silver lining: little glass beads making a comeback?
    • Counter argument: you’d need an organizational chart to keep track of them.



New Non-Legendary creature cards we’re excited about in Ikoria.


Adam’s picks:


Mark’s picks:


Mark’s soapbox: Phase Dolphin should have Phasing.
