How about that? This is a show we recorded two weeks back! Who knew? Well, that doesn’t mean that this stuff isn’t relevant. At the time of this recording, some weird things were going done with our partner in hosting MTG Cast. However, everything’s smoothed over there, so we can just call it a “what if” scenario. What if Commandercast didn’t have an MTG Cast outlet? What if the competition died off? What if Emmara HADN’T been switched with Voice of Resurgence? The madness of it all!

We also have some new news regarding Gifts Given 2013, (some of it moreso in the shownotes below than the show itself because of how long ago it was recorded), and we go ahead and just do some bread and butter strategy and technology discussion, including our speculation and anticipation for some Theros stuff!

And before you ask, I’m not sure what the progress for us figuring out the RSS feed is. If it’s there, great! If not, we’ll get right on that.

Donations will get your messages read on air!

So far our prize pool includes:

ONE XL-sized Boros T-shirt, the kind that Wizards sells on their website, kindly donated by my local gameshop, Fog of Dusk.

4-5 Alters by Kayla aka Zeico! You can see her Magic art/card alters here.

We’re working hard to ask around for other donations too.  🙂 Stay tuned!


There’s a lot up in the air at the moment, who know’s how things are going to end up?

Fortunately, we here at Commandercast have our own site so you’ll be just fine.


EDIT: MTG Cast is going NOWHERE. However, this is still a good “what if” scenario. Just pretend we’re in Planar Chaos or something. 😉

Stratedgy: Using Tribal technology to benefit your general

ex) Riptide laboratory for Jeleva, Scourge of Nephalia

Using cards that have a low cost to your deck are probably worth trying. Riptide just takes up a land slot.

But using cards that reduce cost by one or two mana might not be worth it too often. Tribal buffs can be pretty good though! Ex) Giving Lavinia or Tajaic vigilance with Captain of the Watch.

Try using more generic tribal buffs that help your general in a pretty useful way than trying to get some ramp out of it with Undead Warchief effects (though he’s worth playing for the buff, just saying).
Technology: Undiscovered tech – Theros

William: Voyage Satyr, Artisan’s Sorrow, Curse of Swine

Calvin: Omenspeaker, Akroan Hoplite, Gift of Immortality

Cassidy: Aqueous Form, Horizon Chimera, Medomai the Ageless
