This entry is part 503 of 538 in the series CommanderCast

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 465! This week Mark and Adam are giving up the ghost as they go into the world beyond in a spiritual form. This week is all about the Spirit tribe and what we feel they can be best used for in Commander! From the gothic plane Innistrad of the ancient lands of Kamigawa, what does this tribe bring to table when it’s time to go? Is there a real soul to these creatures of folklore or are they just a myth to scare the children? But first, we have to have a sit down talk with WotC as they are trying to sell you a deck made by Gavin himself… as a Secret Lair! That last one is a bit to unpack but we’ll give you our thoughts and try to lay it all out for you here.

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