  4. Ep 92 Community Spotlight:
    1. This episode we are gonna say 2-Drop, and that means a creature with 2 mana value.
      1. They compete with Mana Rocks/Ramp
      2. I believe they are mostly utility creatures, and not often beating down
      3. They can often come down after turn two, and still impact the game (in fact some of them may not be at their best on Turn 2). 
    2. Two-Drops are a pretty interesting card in Commander.
