This entry is part 190 of 542 in the series CommanderCast






Hello everyone and welcome to Commandercast Episode 186! We’re your weekly source for Community, Strategy, and Technology, hosted on and our homesite:! This week William, Mark, and Clay are joined by Cassidy from General Damage Control as they discuss the Big Bad Wolves of EDH! The lines get a little blurred as the gang discusses Commanders, decks, and overall groan cards that  may lead to a stabbing in the parking lot after a night of EDH! We even try to see if any of these repeat offenders have a shot at being redeemable and ways to try and play them that don’t end in random acts of violence.



All this and more await with the click of an IB!
