This entry is part 5 of 539 in the series CommanderCast

Posted by ANDY aka GHoooSTS

This week’s CommanderCast has the usual team hooking up with a third man; guest hosting this week we have Donovan aka d0su from the MtGS forums. Together the three of us roll out seventy five minutes of EDH discussion covering a variety of topics from Portal Three Kingdoms generals to the REAL reasons people view Red as a weak colour in EDH.

Keep in mind we are still very much trying to build up the EDH community online to make it as vibrant and productive as it’s brother formats. To this end, if you have something to say–or know somebody who does–about EDH, get in touch with us. As usual, we’re always looking for guest hosts and interviewees as well.

Show links and notes below. Enjoy.

00:00 to 05:33: Introduction. Meet our man d0su, Andy hypes the mid-week updates and we respond to listener mail.
05:48 to 11:55: Community Pt. 1: The Free-For-All-Roundtable. This week we fight to the death over Poison in EDH. The survivor resurrects the other commentators after, but I edited that out because it’s kinda boring actually.
11:58 to 21:04: Community Pt. 2: Andy’s SUPER SECRET announcement (secret)!: What could it be? How will all four of our listeners react? Is Andy just on Peyote? Listen in to find out! If you want to be lame and not listen you can also just skip to the links at the end of the show notes 🙁
21:05 to 29:12: Community Pt. 3: Community Spotlight: The week’s highlight is this video (NSFW, lots of profanity in it, but profanity just represents how real things get when you’re arguing about EDH).  If you need to dodge profanity, avoid listening from 22:02 to 23:57. Yeah, that’s it. But seriously, we want to hear from you about good EDH-related media on the web. Hell, we want you to start writing, recording, and whatnot! Get in touch with us if you run a blog, vlog, etc. We want to bring attention to things people might overlook.
29:32 to 50:08: Strategy: Red Doesn’t Necessarily Suck : We provide a rundown on why we consider red in EDH underrated instead of just crappy. Includes some choice cards, strategies, and a whole lot of discussion on land destruction.
50:53 to 66:17: Technology Pt. 1: SECRET TECH: d0su puts us on blast with his secret tech.
Donovan’s Picks:
Common: Lignify, Flux, Icefall
66:25 to 75:01: Technology Pt. 2: Over/Under. Is this guy trolling? Andy claims Mind’s Eye, beloved by EDH players everywhere, is overrated and instead hypes it’s underachieving loser sibling, Farsight Mask. Can he justify it, or does he deserve a swift crowbar to the ear? You decide!
75:10 to 85:50: Technology Pt. 3: Wrexial Project. A quick update on the status of the ongoing $30 Wrexial deck’s construction. Keep the ideas coming if you have any more. The deck is really shaping up nicely.

85:55 to closing: Outtro.
