Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 500! The time has come. We have reached 500 episodes and it’s time to close up shop. One final ride before we go off into the sunset. We here at would like to say a huge Thank You to all of the listeners for being here to listen to us over the years. Today Mark and Adam spend their time thanking everyone that help make this show fun and worth doing.

All that, plus our usual interstitial fodder, and (for one last time) all you have to do is Click the IB!!!

CommanderCast Episode 500

Posted: October 31, 2022








Keep up with the conversation on Facebook & Twitter. Or maybe delete your social media accounts in order to save your sanity and our society. Whichever.





A salute to the comments section


Big thanks to:

  • Jeremy
  • Ward
  • Stephen
  • Phil
  • Mike
  • Dean
  • Thefallingflowerpot
  • Slugfarm (Devo’s “Can’t Get No Satisfaction” is a solid cover)


Interstitial fodder: 

  • Something, something movies!
    • Adam watches Black Adam, Mark finally checks out Silver Linings Playbook.
  • Something, something Video Games! (mostly Final Fantasy)
    • Squad 51 vs. the Flying Saucers
    • FFXVI trailer, future Final Fantasies
  • Something, something comic books!
  • Something, something punk rock!
    • Adam returns to Jersey for a NoFX/Descendents show. It was really good.
  • Something, something FOOD!
    • Best bagel toppings?




Our last “meta-phor.”  Long live the bad puns.


Adam’s hottest takes: There is no strategy, there is no meta.




Final sign-off: what would we want to be next for Magic or EDH in general?



  • Abolish reserve list
  • Abolish banned list
  • Let the people dictate the game not the other way around
  • Anarchy in the UK



  • Fix Arena/create a good digital version of Commander? (Maybe that’s a genie wish?)
  • Stop it with the special booster nonsense
  • Buffs over Nerfs! (Just try to keep that shit evenly distributed)

One last thing for the listeners

Go make stuff that you want to make.  Write some articles, do a blog, put up a YouTube video, start a podcast, do a Magic TikTok–whatever.


One last time, for old time’s sake: LET’S GET IT!
