April has been dubbed Red Month here on CommanderCast, and even though I’ve got a backlog of articles about why we shouldn’t be playing Pheldagriff Group Hug to how to use our life as a resource, this week I’m going to indulge my writer A.D.D. and re-ignite a classic Commander multiplayer conversation about combat.

On the Twitter end, I got the first of what I hope to be many reader-requested topics for articles from @alittlecheeky, who wrote:

Now, this is more of a tangential contribution to the things I normally talk about, but since I’m still in the “lemonade stand/childhood detective agency” stages of readership and reputation here on CommanderCast, I can afford to give out two free refills and a no-case-too-small guarantee. That’s just good business.
