This entry is part 140 of 538 in the series CommanderCast

Posted by William & Calvin

Howdy, Commandercast faithful! Today, things are gonna be a tad odd. By that, I mean Nole was our sole expert on the Judge Breaker deck but life interrupted, punched us in the gut, and stole him before departing for parts unknown.

Fortunately for us, there are tons of Born of the Gods spoilers that came out! You can see the entire selection over on Wizards home site at the image card gallery for yourself, but what do we think about some of these new cards? Well Xenagos is the crazy awesome for one.

So come on in and watch our minds melt as we trudge through the swampy depths of THE JUDGE BREAKER.
