This entry is part 36 of 79 in the series Rival's Duel

erdnHello everyone and welcome to another episode of Rival’s Duel. This week, Eric and Nole take on something different. Commander players often talk about the social contract as a list of ideals for the perfect EDH experience. However, rarely do people talk about how to actually effect change in their group. Eric and Nole try to give tools to the listeners on how to be the agent of positive change for their playgroups. They also take a look at the first few DTK spoilers and put out a call for listener help to build an EDH deck. As always, full shownotes after the break.







Intro and DTK hype

The new set spoilers have already started and we already have 2 of the new legendary creatures. Eric and Nole talk about what we think about Dragonlord Silumgar and Sidisi, Undead Vizier.


Listener E-mail

Eric and Nole had lots of listener e-mail this week. First off, Nole needs your help finding pictures of shirtless men. He’s joked about it for long enough and now he wants your help to build it. If you have good cards for Tasigar that feature men (or male figures) without shirts, send them our way. They also help a player find the least blue feeling blue commander.


Building a better playgroup

At a base level, we as commander players want nothing more than our games to be feel good, whatever that definition of good is. Conflicts arise in playgroups when people have different definitions of good and those definitions come into conflict. Rather than just talk about what the ideal playgroup looks like, Eric and Nole talk about how to shape your playgroup using both social pressure and the cards in your deck.
