First we take a moment to talk about some news about the show and the future. We then take a quick look at some of the modern Planeswalkers and which ones we feel are worth playing in Commander. We wrap things up with a quick look at some cards from Legends that are still really good to play with in the modern day of the game.

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 490! This week Mark and Adam are continuing with a look at some of the cards coming soon in the new Dominaria set! Dominaria United will be releasing on September 9, 2022 and we are getting spoilers from it along with the inclusion of a few prize cards that will be sprinkled into packs from Legends! First we take a moment to talk about if you should avoid the “feel bads” when playing the game. Is it wrong to do something that will cause people to feel bad about a game when you’re trying to win? We then take a quick look at the most recent reworked Legendary cards from Dominaria United that will be included as the new Legends Reborn. We wrap things up with a quick look at some cards from Chronicles that are still worth playing in the modern day of the game

Basically me this past week (minus the goblin).

 

Hi all,

 

I had tempted fate for too long and for my hubris I got dat ‘rona.  I’m feeling fine now, but obviously being under the weather cut into my time this past week, so unfortunately I couldn’t both record & edit the show as normal.  And all this after I had just unf***ed the podcast feed, gotten the iTunes backend in order, etc., something, something, best laid plans of mice and men… you get the idea.

 

In any event, the show will return next week as per usual. There are too many weird old cards out there and dammit someone has to talk about them on the internet.  We take our jank very seriously on CommanderCast.

 

Take care everybody.  Stay healthy and we’ll talk at ya next week–

 

 

–Mark

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 489!  This week Mark and Adam are going over the most recent news about the recent return to one of Magic’s loved sets, Dominaria! Dominaria United will be releasing on September 9, 2022 and we are starting to get spoilers for what to expect in the set. First we take a moment to talk about some of the recent cards that were revealed from the set. We then take a quick look at a type of card that was the inspiration for the Level Up mechanic. Figure of Destiny started the ball rolling and since it was printed there have been a few cards that came from its design and we take time today to evaluate them. We wrap things up with a quick look at some of the old Legends cards we would like to see a retrain of with the new Legends Reborn from the set.

Howdy folks!

 

It’s vacation time around these parts, so your usual dynamic duo are off this week.  Oddly, this also coincides with a relative lack of new content to talk about (for a change), but we’ll be back next week to fill the CommanderCast void in your schedule.

 

Until then, enjoy these ridiculous Magic: the Gathering-themed beach towels that I was somehow surprised to see exist.  Of course they have MtG beach towels, right? This is America–what wouldn’t people put on a beach towel? (Please don’t answer that.)

 

See you next week!
