Hello everyone and welcome to Commandercast Episode 199! We’re your weekly source for Community, Strategy, and Technology, hosted on and our homesite:! We’re recording this on May 28th, 2015.

This week William, Calvin, Mark, Clay, and Aaron gather together to talk about the the idea of what could be the next rule to be changed for Commander. We discuss the idea of changing the mana production rule where if you would  produce a mana that is outside of the colors of your Commander’s color identity, that mana is turned colorless instead. Quick example, Calvin has Ashling and taps Gilded Lotus for three green mana instead of three red, Gilded Lotus would then make three colorless mana instead. We discuss the idea of doing away with this rule so Calvin can have green mana for all the green creatures he stole and can use their activated abilities. We then discuss the idea of Net-Decking and we wrap things up with a quick look at some of the Unsung Legends of Commander.


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