This entry is part 497 of 499 in the series CommanderCast

Hello everyone and welcome to CommanderCast Episode 459! This week Mark and Adam are tapping their veins harder than a phlebotomist trying to go home early! This week the guys are all about the blood sucking vampires! Who’s the best Command… Edgar. It’s Edgar Markov. But Who’s the best runner-ups and who cards can be a real drain on your deck. Plus, we have some of the most fun and spicy cards you will need to get the blood flowing. But first, a quick discussion on where do the five color Commanders stand? are the strong independent cards that can whole their own or are they just generic cannon fodder to only be used for people who just want to run the best cards with little need for a Commander to support the deck they lead?

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