Episode 562 – Commander 2019, Part 1

Commander 2019 is upon us! And since our Mike can’t be with us this week, we grabbed another Mike to join us – L2 judge and cohost of the Best of 3 podcast, Mike Moore!

It turns out that talking about Commander cards takes a while, so it turns out we’re only doing the first two decks this week – the Sultai Morph deck and the Jeskai Flashback deck. We’re going into detail on all the new cards in each deck and then taking a look at the reprints that make up the rest. Turns out the new cards are pretty good. Who’da thunk it?

    Thoughts while listening:

    1) The rage about Leadership Vacuum (I believe) comes from this acting as a Blue kill spell, which is not in blue’s color identity (without some polymorphing ability). Your description is still accurate though.

    2) Mandate of Peace: I think you missed something really cool. You can still let damage happen, but end combat with any saboteur triggers still on the stack. You voltron opponent swing his sworded up commander at your other opponent? Let the damage happen to knock them out, but end combat before the attacker can gain life, ping that, draw, untap, spill your soda, kick your dog, date your mom, become your new dad, get a creature back, proliferate, etc.

    The other thing is that this card is weird is that it punishes your opponent for playing “correctly”. Normally you don’t want to cast things in your first main phase, so you go to your second. This punishes that thought process.

    3) Sakura-Tribe Elder and Faithless Looting aren’t new arts. STEve is the FNM promo art, and Faithless Looting is the IDW Comic promo (IIRC)
