This entry is part 118 of 537 in the series CommanderCast





For a lot of people, Planeswalkers are the icons of Magic. For some, they represent the moment that Magic got a new fangled card type that ruined the game. Regardless, these guys are here to stay and travel with us from plane to plane.

I, personally, love planeswalkers but a recent discussion with my girlfriend has left me wondering just what it is about planeswalkers that people like about them.

Also in the que, we’ve got Calvin reporting in on how well the Azorius mechanics play together.

As always, shownotes, links, and download link are below.
