Episode 563 – Commander 2019 Eggstravaganza

It turns out Commander 2019 was too big for one podcast! So we’re back this week with our look at the Naya Populate deck and the Rakdos Madness deck! And we’re joined by Chase from Best of 3, who you might remember from our War of the Spark prerelease episode. She’s really into eggs. Like…REALLY into them. Like damn.

Episode 443 – Commander 2016 Live!

We spent the last two episodes telling you all about these decks, it’s high time that we actually play them!

The dorks gathered at Brian’s house just before the American Thanksgiving holiday to fool around, eat chili, and play some Magic! And since Mike picked up all the new Commander decks we just had to record a game with them, you know? Otherwise we’d have broken the streak, and we just can’t have that.
