This entry is part 490 of 493 in the series CommanderCast

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 452! This week Mark and Adam’s pockets are hurting with trying to keep up with all the new cards that WotC keep churning out. In the current year we’ve seen set after set go by almost completely unnoticed because of how soon the “next big thing” is a few days or a week after it came out. So today we have to ask if it’s worth it to try and keep up with the cards that are being printed or is it just best to take time to enjoy the ones we have already collected before we move on to the next thing? Then the guys want to take a moment to ponder over how much card draw do you really need in a deck where your Commander has a built in draw effect already? Finally, we wrap things up with a quick look at so cards that might help with so of our low funds by finding us a ton of treasures!

 

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

Greetings everyone!  On Wednesday’s Dusters there were Marit Lage tokens mentioned featuring Lloyd dressed as Super Heros.  I tried to pick indestructible characters that also flew to match Marit Lage’s abilities.  So that is how I came up with Superman, Thor, Hulk, and Silver Surfer (I know that Hulk doesn’t fly but pretty much does when he jumps).  There have been a few inquiries as to the actual tokens so I rendered them up as a late Christmas present.  You can click on each token and get a much larger version of it.  Enjoy!

Hi my name is Judson, AKA GUDoug, and I am a “Wildly Successful” token master.  Any deck can make a token or two without blowing out an o-ring, especially when using perennial candidate for “greens best finisher” Avenger of Zendikar.  So does playing that card make a deck a token deck?  I don’t think anyone would jump to that conclusion…unless you are a registered token offender, then any token made suddenly classifies your deck a token deck.  As a registered token offender you have to go door to door visiting each local game store in your area and let them know you abuse non-card permanents in-game.  Unofficially I have assumed the mantle of CommanderCast’s token “Token Guy” (S7E13) and I have a statement that I would like everyone to know, “I don’t always play tokens but when I do you will know it.”  Tokens often get the stink eye from other players, and are not viewed as a difficult strategy to play.  Playing tokens isn’t just attacking, it can be just as planning and manipulating as most strategies.

BOOOM!!!!

Sparks were flying early as we started fending off attacks. But now was the time for my long awaited counter strike.

Sigil of the Empty Throne is a card that usually needs an enchantress build in order flourish. But today, getting the one angel off of it was enough. It was enough, because the enchantment that had produced the angel turned out to be Growing Ranks. Rhys would do the rest.

In a few short rounds, my one angel had become a flight of 15. Dropping a BeastMaster Ascension should have been the play that killed the table….or at least it would’ve been if someone hadn’t Fog’d. A group effort knocked me out and looking for a new game to play.

The day to test Rhys and Trostani had come, and I plenty of games to try and figure it out.

It’s perfectly normal to start getting close to your cards. I do it all of the time. People might look at you funny when you start telling them that you consider some of your cards to be your very own special “partner”, but there are also people who understand that feeling. I’ve had plenty of comments and the like of people sharing stories about their generals, and I’ve loved reading them all!

But when you start having conversations with your imaginary versions of these characters? I think it’s safe to say that you might be in a little deep. Currently, I’m up to hips. What do I mean by that? Well first, let’s have a quick re-cap.
