Episode 342 – Chieftain of Ghosts

Karador, Ghost Chieftain

The dorks kick this episode off with some news and a few updates, just some things you might want to know.  After that, we have a very personal listener question.  We were asked a very simple question that revealed a lot about us: If we lived on Theros, which of the pantheon of gods would we be most devoted to?  It led to a really good discussion.

After that, it’s on to a Story Circle!  This one is at the same time topical, being wedge-based, and completely not topical, because we picked Karador, Ghost Chieftain from the first Commander product.  The direction we took ended up being pretty cool, with one dork laying claim to it when all was said and done.  We hope you enjoy!

    Your Karador deck sounds so much more fun to play against than every Karador deck I’ve encountered (Grave Pact, Butcher of Malakir, Dictate of Erebos, Yosei / something else awful and 95 x doesn’t matter). Great episode!

      Thanks, glad you liked it! We try to make our decks fun to play with and (for the most part) against.

    Once you started talking about the gods and who each of you would revere, I could call each of you, except maybe Chewie. Just from how well we get to know you from the podcast. Like Chewie, I’m not a religious person and that makes it hard to think about deities the same way as more spiritual people. That said i had a related thought. The gods are all interesting and thought out, but what other gods do you guys think would be interesting and fitting for the colors and color pairs? Not the god names, but instead of a god of storms, what would be another good aspect for a red/blue god?

    Huh, I just tossed some card in for a Karaador “75%” build a couple weeks ago.

    I have not had a chance to playtest it yet. I did however run wild with ‘alternate casting cost’ creatures so I am heavy on BESTOW and also on EVOKE creatures. Trying to play a deck that can operate as a referee.

    Group head-slap instead of group hug.

    Thanks for mentioning Nature’s Resurgence. I had never heard of it and it’s going to be awesome for Sidisi.

    […] Commanders.  Hey, they’re wedge-colored!  So we decided we’d do one of those for Episode 342. We discounted the ones that a dork had already built around and looked at what was left, and […]
