Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 421! This week Mark and Adam have heard your cries for more and they are giving you an Encore! The Encore mechanic is an interesting new way to get more from your cards, but is it worth beginning in the 99 or are these cards over staying their welcome? The guys also go over the Secret Lairs product in the Community segment and wrap things up with I look at the Court cycle with the Tech segment.


All that, plus our usual interstitial fodder, and all you have to do is Click the IB!!!

Encore” as a new keyword mechanic in Commander Legends


702.140. Encore

702.140a Encore is an activated ability that functions while the card with encore is in a graveyard. “Encore [cost]” means “[Cost], Exile this card from your graveyard: For each opponent, create a token that’s a copy of this card that attacks that opponent this turn if able. The tokens gain haste. Sacrifice them at the beginning of the next end step. Activate this ability only any time you could cast a sorcery.”
