This entry is part 490 of 528 in the series CommanderCast

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 452! This week Mark and Adam’s pockets are hurting with trying to keep up with all the new cards that WotC keep churning out. In the current year we’ve seen set after set go by almost completely unnoticed because of how soon the “next big thing” is a few days or a week after it came out. So today we have to ask if it’s worth it to try and keep up with the cards that are being printed or is it just best to take time to enjoy the ones we have already collected before we move on to the next thing? Then the guys want to take a moment to ponder over how much card draw do you really need in a deck where your Commander has a built in draw effect already? Finally, we wrap things up with a quick look at so cards that might help with so of our low funds by finding us a ton of treasures!


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

CommanderCast Episode 452

Posted: August 9, 2021








Keep up with the conversation on Facebook & Twitter.



Do you (or should you) try to keep up with the new cards in EDH?


Interstitial fodder: 

  • Panzer Dragoon Saga is the platypus of JRPGs (and still fun to play).
  • Mark listened to the D&D audiobook read by Ice-T so you don’t have to.
  • Bo Burnham’s “Welcome to the Internet” and “White-Woman’s Instagram”
  • “Olympic Highlights with Kevin Hart and Snoop Dogg” is the best part of the Olympics.




How much can/should you skimp on draw effects when your commander draws cards? (Yuriko, Sevala, Chulane, etc.)
