Exploding fourth from the cold, loveless void of the internet, it’s CommanderCast episode 8! This week we’re keeping it extra real with Jeremiah on the mic. It’s been an exciting couple months for Commander players everywhere between Wizard’s announcement, the rampant speculation leading to and the actual December Rules Committee banlist addition, and the introduction of Colour Identity! Listen in to hear out thoughts and let us know what you think, as always, by hitting us up at CommanderCast(at)gmail(dot)com!

We’re also still soliciting help in the form of articles, guest hosts, topic ideas, and so on, so if you have something to say I’m definitely willing to provide a platform for you. Get in touch with me and let’s make something happen.

Show notes and links below. Enjoy.

00:00 to 06:05: Intro: Meet Jeremiah. I run down the mailbag, and shout outs to those who take the time to interact with us.
06:11 to 12:00: Community: December Rules Committee Update: We discuss the rules updates we speculated on last week. Welcome Colour Identity, bye-bye Emrakul.
12:13 to 26:14: Community: Listener Question: This week we took a suggested topic from Levi: “Is part of the EDH experience debating with other players what is and isn’t OK to do? Or should it be defined by the rules like other sanctioned formats?”
26:21 to 44:48: Strategy: Under the Radar. We speak on the time-honoured multiplayer strategy of hanging back and letting your opponents beat one another to death. How can you maintain that stealth that lets you swoop in and win games? How do you spot opponents trying to do the same?
45:16 to 63:58: Secret Tech: Jeremiah Edition.
64:04 to 77:36: Technology: Retro Cycle Review: Ascendants. Jeremiah and I are running down the Ascendant creatures from Saviors of Kamigawa, ranking them from best to worst in an EDH context and explaining the rationale.
Jeremiah’s Order: Kuon, Rune-Tail, Sasaya, Homura, Erayo
Andy’s Order: Homura, Kuon, Sasaya, Rune-Tail, Erayo
77:49 to closing: Outtro.
