Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 487!  Here in the U.S.A. today we celebrate our Independence Day! This week we have Stephen as a guest host to help Mark with the rest of the newest subtype of cards from Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate, Backgrounds! First we take a moment to talk about how WotC had to announce a delay in product availability We then take a quick look at the half of the new Background cards from Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate that we didn’t talk about last week. We wrap things up with a quick look at pairing up some of the “Choose a Background” Legendary creatures with some of the best Background enchantments.

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