This entry is part 498 of 539 in the series CommanderCast

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 460! This week Mark and Adam are feeling that deep dark fear that only comes when true Horror is near. That’s right, with the spooky season here the guys are preparing to face the terror of the best Horrors in all of Magic! But first, we have to take a moment to talk about everyone’s favorite horror, Atraxa, Praetors’ Voice! She is one of the best creatures to come to Commander from the preconstructed decks and it’s time to show her some love. Then we have a question we need to have answers. That being if you play a “bad” tribal deck do you try to play cards that can fill in where the tribe is lacking or do you go full throttle and enjoy the janky?

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