Spoiler season, why aren’t you more exciting?


I’m actually more excited about spoiler season than her Majesty’s scowl might suggest, but I’m not over the moon about this new set yet.  By way of explanation, let us consider some of the new commanders we’re getting this spoiler season:

This entry is part 363 of 542 in the series CommanderCast

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 339! This week Mark and Adam are back at it again! But a few quick notes… 1. There was a editing issue that caused a lot of static in the recording. 2. That static has been edited out. 3. The cost of editing out that static some of the show maybe a little bit harder to hear. With that out of the way we’re working on fixing this for future episodes.

With that out of the way this week they go over some of the Ultimate Master reprints, how to fix Boros, and a few Boros staples are thrown in for good measure.

Well click the IB and find out!!!

This entry is part 1 of 10 in the series One-Two Punch

By Dodo Bird Commander writer Ryan Zeitz






Hey everyone, Rhyno here charging at you with the third installment of “One-Two Punch”, a series where I show you 3 powerful card pairs, one 2-color guild at a time.

These are NOT combos in the traditional sense that they instantly K.O. (cuz that’s below the belt). Instead, they’re the jab and the uppercut you need to get back in the fight when your opponents have you cornered.

Red-white is Boros…Let’s go!

Posted by William & Calvin

Howdy, Commandercast faithful! Calvin and I are back for the second part to our Gatecrash review! I actually liked how our first parter went, so it’s a shame that this one was recorded first. But don’t worry! Eric and Chris join us to tell me why I’m delusional about some of these cards and tag team to give me a horrible swirly.

Today, we discuss the most aggressive guilds of Ravnica, Boros and Gruul! Plenty of these cards are exactly the kind of thing that get Calvin and I going when it comes to playing dudes and smashing. But which ones make the cut and which ones just disappeared over the past year?

Remember that this week also kicks off the second half of our rotating schedule of column content! Be sure to check back Tues-Fri for more articles and other awesome postings!


As always, shownotes are after the Ib!

This entry is part 23 of 23 in the series Savor That Commander Flavor

By William aka BlueRam

“Arriving home, he suddenly longed for the bloodsoaked battlefields behind him.” -Season’s Beatings

Well, it’s been a crazy year. I started writing the column at the start of the Season Six, around a spring that saw an unfortunately timed storm. Natural disasters, political campaigns, and the printing of Thragtusk, the world saw it all in 2012 (except for the end of it, thank you Mayans).

But we saw the beginning of the new year with our Return to Ravnica, and a plethora of useable cards, especially in Commander. The collectors got new shinies, casuals got cheaper duels, and we all got the early previews for the new Gatecrash set.

Every year’s got it’s good and it’s bad, but they always have an end too. Just like the year, this column’s got an end, which is going to be this one. With what I’ve got planned for the upcoming year, I’m erring on the side of keeping my finger out of too many pies. I might return to the column someday but, for now at least, I’m getting ready to call it quits for the writing gig.

So, to send ya’ll off with an end of the year classic: a fictional narrative about my journey as a planeswalker, and the paths it crossed.
