Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 409! This week Mark and Adam are trying to figure out what, if any, Cycle Lands are worth running. But first, Gavin Verhey recently started talking about the future of Commander and the guys have some interesting things to say about it! Then we wrap up the show with a look at some of the best/overlooked cards from Amonkhet!

Posted: August 17, 2020








Keep up with the conversation on Facebook & Twitter.





Interstitial fodder: 

  • All New X-Men: worth reading
  • The Sandman audio adaptation might be awesome, but I haven’t had time to listen to it
    • Special shoutout: the old NPR Star Wars radio dramas are masterpieces.
  • The Official CommanderCast Guide to Shakespeare.
  • At-home cover songs & Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures album
  • Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans
