Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 476! This week Mark and Adam are hitting the streets in search of crime. With the spoilers for Streets of New Capenna ou, we figured this would be a good time to look at some of Magic’s biggest criminals. We first look at spoilers to see what we have in store from the up coming set. We then take a quick look at some of the current creatures in our format we feel could do good for themselves if they were to find themselves on New Capenna. We wrap things up with a quick look at some of the most notorious cards in the game known for the crimes at the table they are used for. It’s all about taking what you can and making sure you’re the one who profits in the end.

All that, plus our usual interstitial fodder, and all you have to do is Click the IB!!!

This entry is part [part not set] of 23 in the series No-Show Monday

 

Sometimes life hits you like Rowdy Roddy Piper in an alley and it’s less than conducive to podcast recording. We’re all fine, but just like Keith David we had to take a little breather before jumping back into the fight.

 

The good news is that we’ll be back with spoiler talk next week and assorted nonsense, so stay tuned! Here’s a preview: we mostly like the new cards, but we’re grumpy about having to learn yet another new name for old wedge colors.

 

You probably could have guessed that.

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 475! With spring coming, Covid-19 restrictions being lowered or removed, and stores trying to go back to normal tournament play…(Yes I’ve waited literal years to lay this egg… let me have this) It’s time to put the Gathering back in Magic! This week Mark and Adam are going over In-Store Events. Your LGS needs you now more than ever and the best way they can get you out of your bed and into some folding chairs is to offer you a chance to… put stickers on a poster… look I did say it was a great idea ok! Today we first look at what some of those events are, some from the past that might be better, and voice our opinions on if it’s worth doing at all. We then take a quick look at ways to shore up some of your game plans for when your Commander is out to lunch. Secondary win strategies, back-up Commanders, and more will be discussed in order to help you sneak in more wins. We wrap things up with a quick look at an article from Ben Bleiweiss over at Star City Games where he talks about the Top 25 WORST cards in Magic.

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 474! This week Mark and Adam ask the question, what happened to Theme Decks? There was once a time where WotC would release two decks to play against each other and the deck would have some kind of theme to them. There would be Elves vs Goblins, Nature vs Inventions, or Fire vs Ice. You might even see two Planeswalkers going at it. Sure WotC still releases premade decks with the Commander, Challenger, and Pioneer decks… but what happened to the Theme Decks? Today we first look at Theme Decks and try to figure out why they disappeared from the yearly rotation. We then take a quick look at the new Reconfigure mechanic from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty. Is there enough juice in these cards to quench our thirst or are they dryer than a raisin? We wrap things up with a quick look at another tribe that might be of interest, Fox tribal!

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 473! This week Mark and Adam are going over some of the cards from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty that we just couldn’t really find a place to talk about. First we look at some of the most recent spoilers from the next upcoming set Streets of New Capenna. We then take a quick look at what we feel are the cards we would use to build a deck based around Sagas. We wrap it up with a quick look at what could be an interesting new kind of tribal deck in Moonfolks.

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 472! This week Mark and Adam are ready to burn some rubber. Rev up your engines as we roll out the vehicles! But first, we take a moment to talk about the “idea” of Magic getting into NFT’s. We then take a quick look around the lot to see what ride we would chose to pull off with. We wrap it up with a quick look at some of the best Commanders to let get behind the wheel and a few of the best added features we could use to support our sweet rides.
