    1.  Bitterblossom has been one of my favorite cards since I came back to Magic. I saw it in a list on the internet for Ertai, the Corrupted and have been in love with it ever since. I’ve always planned on building a Faerie deck, but felt kind of stuck with Oona as my commander. With the release of the Esper Faerie Commander I felt like lightning struck

  2. Ep 17 Community Spotlight:
    1. Welcome! You’re discovering the BEST format in Magic: the Gathering (We maaaay be biased, but hey)
    2. Who is this episode for? We assume that you are at least slightly familiar with Magic. Maybe you played a long time ago, maybe you’re brand new to the game, but you at least know the basic rules. Also, we think veteran players might enjoy listening to this episode, and we certainly hope that anyone out there will send this episode in particular to new players they teach, or anyone who is interested in learning about the greatest Magic format.
  3. Main Topic - New to Commander

 

  • What is Commander?

 

  1. Arguably the MOST popular Magic format of all time!
  2. 40 life, multiplayer format, where you have a Legendary creature as your Commander
    1. Example: You choose Meren of Clan Nel Toth
    2. This means you can play Black Cards, Green Cards, Black AND Green cards, and any number of artifacts you want. You cannot play with White, Blue or Red cards. To further clarify you cannot play with Terminate because it’s got Red in it’s color identity
    3. Hybrid mana cards (Ex. Kitchen Finks) are both GREEN and WHITE in terms of color identity. So, Kitchen Finks cannot go in a mono-green deck.
  3. Your Commander’s Color Identity determines what cards you’re allowed to play.
    1. This means that you can only play ONE of each non-basic land card
  4. Commander is a 100 card SINGLETON format
    1. SO MANY! Cards all throughout the history of Magic
    2. There is a Banned list maintained at: http://mtgcommander.net/rules.php
    3. It’s actually a pretty small list, 39 cards at the time of this recording (In ALL the history of Magic)
  5. What cards are you allowed to play with?

 

  • Why is Commander so great?

 

  1. It’s a SOCIAL format! Commander can be a time when you get together with your friends and just have a good time and laugh etc.
    1. I’ve made some life-long friends playing Commander
  2. The community is Amazing! We constantly see newcomers welcomed with open arms, and folks are always happy to help people become part of this community
    1. Ryan likes to play with Other People’s Cards, and built a whole Mono-red deck around it
  3. Personal expression! Commander is a format where players can really express themselves through the decks they build and how they play
  4. It’s the Battlecruiser format of Magic! Folks can play with the biggest, baddest cards, and there is more game space to have crazy things happen that wouldn’t in a normal game of Magic.
  5. Your skill in politics can be just as important as the power level of your deck. This leads to a natural balancing effect, where the power dynamics shift as the game goes on
    1. You can play super casual, all the way up to cEDH (Explain here that the format started off as Elder Dragon Highlander, a.k.a EDH, and that cEDH stands for Competitive EDH)
    2. It’s important to find a playgroup that fits your style, and power level. 
  6. There are different levels of power when it comes to Commander

 

  • How to get started

 

  1. Start with a precon! There’s no better time than now
  2. Find out when Commander Night is at your LGS.
    1. Decide who your commander is going to be. This can be a favorite legendary character from days past or it could just be a commander who has a mechanic you find interesting.
      1. Decide a plan of attack
      2. Look for cards that synergize with your commander or just look fun to play with. 
      3. Use sites like Scryfall to do searches for specific things (ie. Landfall)
      4. If you’re coming up short of a full 100 you can do internet research on sites like edhrec and archidekt for deck lists
      5. Remember this is your deck, so build it in a way that will be fun for you and those you play with. 
    2. How to decide what cards to put in
  3. Zack’s steps to make your first commander deck

 

  • Tips for a new player

 

  1. Tips from Discord and Twitter go here
    1. Ramp and Card draw are the building blocks of Commander
      1. Briefly Define Ramp and Card Draw
      2. With 40 starting life total, you can usually afford to spend the first few turns ramping. This will allow you to cast bigger cards, more quickly, and have a bigger impact on the game
      3. You are usually playing against 3 other opponents. So, for every card you draw, your opponents are collectively drawing 3. Having more card draw can lessen this difference.
      4. There are many reasons to want Ramp and Card Draw. Whole episodes can be devoted to these topics, but this is a good place to start
      1. Especially for new players coming from other formats that is a weird and unintuitive thing but it's important to understand this or there will be some social tensions and feel bads
    2. How the social contract works.
    3. Mana curve matters. 
    4. Build a deck with a game plan and a direction
    5. Threat assessment, or more accurately, how to effectively deal with problem permanents/spells without drawing a ton of hate.
    6. How to build a solid mana base/ramp package.
    7. Settle on a list before buying singles. 
    8. The stack
    9. Priority
  2. Play removal! Especially for artifacts and enchantments
  3. Board Wipes are important, but so is single target removal
  4. It’s OK to take time to READ all the cards! Don’t be intimidated by this, even myself as a veteren player, I have to read a card just about every turn of the game!
  5. There’s a LOT of cards, and this can be kinda scary, but it’s OK to NOT know everything

 

  • Resources for learning more

 

  1. So. You’re interested is peeked, and you want to dive deep into this wonderful format, where can you go to learn more?
    1. Edhrec.com
    2. http://mtgcommander.net/rules.php (pay particular attention to Philosophy of Commander and the social contract: http://mtgcommander.net/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=19170 )
    3. Podcasts: Command Zone, Commanderin, Commander’s Brew, CMDR Central
    4. Youtube - Game Knights, Jumbo Commander, Commander’s Quarters
    5. Scryfall

 

  • Summary

 

    1. Commander is great! And now is a great time to be a Commander player with the new C19 decks just having come out.
    2. It’s a fun, Social format, to share with friends
    3. If you are new to Commander, let us know! We’d love to help you embrace this amazing format

    1. Learn by teaching. I’m going to be teaching some people who are new to Magic
      1. PSA: You can get Welcome Decks at your LGS (Thanks Mothership!)
        1. https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Core_Set_2020/Welcome_decks
          1. Each deck is a monocolored, thirty-card, ready-to-play sample deck, consisting of basic lands, commons, 4 uncommons and 1 rare.
        2. Zack - Open one of the decks, and fan it out a bit
      2. Teaching someone is a great way to cement your knowledge and understanding of a topic. Think about a time you’ve taught somebody at work a new product, or skill, you probably gained a greater understanding of the skill on your own

    6. I'm building my love song to my favorite card type: Estrid-only enchantments. It will be heavy on control magic type auras. What win cons would you use? Thnx"

    1. What is the Vegas Rotisserie
      1. Define what a rotisserie draft is
      2. It’s on Twitter
      3. It’s for Charity - Supporting Dell Children’s Hospital - https://www.dellchildrens.net 
      1. So Ryan tells me he has this idea he wants to tell me, but he wants to tell me to my face. We meet up for lunch at BDubs as we are wont to do. Ryan tells me about this rotisserie draft thing and as a fantasy football player I was TOTALLY in! 
        1. Charity
          1. This is REALLY important to us. Being able to use our podcast to make the world a better place has always been one of our biggest goals.
        2. Interaction with the community
        3. Having fun!
      2. The Idea def hit all of the checkboxes we want to be doing
    2. How we came up with the idea
      1. Thanks to the ppl who helped
        1. Kelly
        2. Lee
        3. BJ
        4. Peter

        6.  Joe Hoffman - Friend of the show
          1. Golos, Tireless Pilgrim
        7.  Ryan Greene - One of your hometown heroes from @commander Social
          1. Yarok, the Desecrated
        8.  Zack Taylor  - One of your hometown heroes from @commander Social 
        1. Ryan - Talk about how I chose which commanders to pick
        2. Zack - Going with my the most A1 BOLD picks I can think of and going by my gut!
          1. We looked at what the most likely Commanders for each player would be
          2. Determined cards we thought might be highly contested
            1. Ryan - Ramp
            2. Zack - Enters the Battlefield effects
          3. Determined what cards would be most important to our decks strategy
        3. Picking cards for the 99
      2. How we are making picks
        1. Community members can donate to their favorite content creator in the draft
        2. Each $5 donated to a player increases their overall budget by $1, and adds 5 points to their “Power-Up pool”
          1. “Cut the line” - 50 points - Make a pick instantly. Then the draft continues as normal. This does not take your turn for the round. Limit one per player
          2. “Wait your turn” - 100 points - Cause target drafter to go last this draft round. Limit one per player
          3. “Clone” - 250 points - This round you may select a card that has already been drafted. This allows you to break the rules of the rotisserie format. Limit one per player
          4. “Blatant Thievery” - 500 points - You steal a previously drafted card from another player. That player immediately makes a replacement pick. The player stolen from gets their budget returned for the stolen card. Limit one per player.
        3. Each player may spend their Power-Up points in the following manner:
      3. Community Engagement
    4. The Current Draft
      1. Here’s where the Rules/FAQ/Spreadsheet are
        1. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/10oHVjnokpsGH1_PIrvSQv6Ikm6PdOXre?usp=sharing 
          1. We have made these publicly available, so that ANYONE out there can run their own rotisserie draft
          1. Main tab “Group Picks” pulls all the picks into one easy place for your group and/or the public to follow along
          2. Stops folks from picking duplicates. This is important when there are nearly 600 individual cards picked
          3. Tracks your balance for you
          4. Formats the tweet, so you literally just have to hit a single button, and it will Tweet your pick, your remaining budget, the hashtag you have chosen, and @ the next person whose turn is after yours
          5. Creates some nice little charts and graphs that show your mana curve, card types, and colors
        2. The spreadsheet does everything for you
      2. Determine your players - We’ve done a draft with exactly 8 players, because this makes for 2 pods of 4 players, and should ensure decently powerful decks
      3. Set a budget - We chose 200, and this excludes mana-producing lands, because we thought that might be less interesting to watch, and it allows people to only have to make 70 picks instead of 100
      4. Determine your “Draft hours window”. Ours is currently from 10am - 10pm Central, but obviously this might change depending on your group
      5. Depending on how “available” your group is, this can take up to 4 weeks to make all of the picks
    5. How to run your own Rotisserie Draft
      1. https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.team&teamID=47038
    6. Summary - This is super fun! We encourage anyone out there that has a playgroup to consider doing this. Let us know what you think, and there’s probably still time to get a donation in for a good cause:

    1. Disclaimer: This is a framework of skills that we think ALL Commander players can practice to get better at the game. We aren’t necessarily going to go into HOW to get better at these skills this episode, but we thought it was important to recognize WHAT the skills are. Maybe we’ll go into each of these skills, and how to get better at them in future episodes. To the Audience, let us know if that is something you would like!
      1. Read and understand a Magic card
      2. Mentally maintain board state
      3. Threat Assessment (If you can't understand the board state, little chance for you to accurately assess threat)
      4. Ability to Read the Table (ex. Karen is upset with Steve for blowing up her Blind Obedience, therefore I'll attack Charlie)
      5. Think Ahead and have a plan
      6. Politics 
      7. Comprehensive Rules Knowledge

    2. Commander skillz that pay the billz
      1. These are the skills that create a framework for people to get better at playing Commander. 
      2. What do you think about these skills? Did we miss any? If we were to do a deep dive on one of these skills, which one would you want us to do first? Let us know

  1. Main Topic - A1 Bold Predictions for Commander 2019
    1. What do we know for really real
      1. Releasing August 23rd (Same weekend of MF Vegas)
        1. A special Sol Ring Commander promo (foil and non-foil) with new art by Mark Tedin will be released at Grand Prix Las Vegas, just before the release of Commander 2019.[2] It will be available through Commander events at MagicFests throughout the year, and at select conventions in 2020.
      2. Promo Sol Ring will not be the art in Commander 2019
      1. Four decks rather than five. 
      2. Multiple viable commanders in each the deck
      3. Planeswalkers will not be the main commanders. 
    2. Reasonable Assumptions
      1. TH, the Intern - Mono colored decks
      2. Joe Hoffman - Each deck will be themed by plane
      3. Andy Bently - Each deck will be one of the following themes, Tribal, Hard Control, Vehicles, and 7 Piece Combo)
        1. Example: Deck is UBRW, Partner 1 is UBW, Partner 2 is RBW
      4. Zack - 4 Color decks, with 3 color partner Commanders
        1. Enemy-colored Crowd Lands (these are the ones from Battlebond, Sea of Clouds, etc)
        2. A 5 card cycle of Mono-colored “Partners”, (1-1-1-2 in each deck), not designed to be commanders of the deck
          1. A 5 color Elemental themed deck (because Elementals feature prominently in standard right now)
          2. A Colorless Deck, with 3 new colorless legendaries
          3. A R/G Werewolf deck, with an awesome Werewolves matter Commander
          4. An Esper Control Deck
        3.  The 4 decks will be:

    4. Top 8 reprints we want for Commander 2019
    1. I beat Ryan in a game in the M20 Pre-release. I should have won game two, but I didn’t go all in on an attack i should have that lost me the game. 
    2. I’ve def been doing some late night streaming, so if you want to tune in, you can tell me what you think I'm doing right or wrong!

  3. Ep 6 Community Spotlight:
    1. 406.3
  4. Commander Rules!
    1. Define: Lands that have an effect other than generating mana.
    2. We love these cards because they can act like spells, and can add power to your deck without taking up a spell slot.
    3. Caution: You should use these sparingly, as they often come with downsides, like coming into play tapped, or only adding colorless mana.
    4. Some Utility Lands, such as Maze of Ith, or Glacial Chasm, don’t add mana. When I build a deck I tend not to include these in my land slots (I think of them as zero cost permanent that makes me skip my land drop for the turn)
      1. 0 colors: ALL the Utility Lands!!!!
      2. 1 color: 8ish
      3. 2 color: 6ish
      4. 3 color: 4ish
      5. 4&5 color: 3ish
      6. Obviously this changes depending on how early you need certain colors of mana, or how color cost intensive your cards are (Cryptic Command, etc)
      7. You can run more of these the more solid the rest of your land base is (fetches, shocks, duals, oh my. But mention some good budget options here. Ravnica bounce lands, 5 color lands, Evolving wilds etc
    5. Also, the more colors your deck is, the less of these you can afford to run. A rule of thumb (and by no means perfect):
      1. Zero Utility Lands in the EDHRec top 100 for the past week, 2 weeks, or year.
        1. 31 - Reliquary Tower
        2. 40 - Bojuka Bog
        3. 79 - Kessig Wolf Run
        4. 83 -  Rogue's Passage
        5. 95 -  Alchemist's Refuge
      2. The following cards are the Utility Lands on the top 100 Lands for the last two years:
    6. Utility lands on EDHRec Top 100
      1. Maybe your commander is super important to your strategy, and your meta is counterspell heavy: Cavern of souls. 
      2. Maybe you need a certain spell to resolve: Boseiju
      3. Sometimes you want to recur some junk: Hall of Heliod’s Generosity / Academy Ruins
      4. Maybe you want to destroy your opponent’s oppressive land: Strip Mine / Wasteland / Ghost Protocol
    7. You can use these kinds of lands to shore up a deck’s weakness:
      1. Expedition map
      2. Trinket Mage
      3. Sylvan scrying
      4. Weathered Wayfarer
      5. Any all purpose tutor
    8. How to find these lands
      1. Hall of Heliod's Generosity
      2. Karn's Bastion
      3. Cavern of Souls / Boseiju, Who Shelters All
      4. Kjeldoran Outpost
      5. Tolaria west
      6. Kor Haven
      7. Winding Canyons
      8. Dark Depths / Arixmethes / Creeping Tar Pit / Mutavault / Inkmoth Nexus
      9. Thespian Stage
      10. Vesuva
      11. Academy Ruins
      12. Emergence Zone
      13. Inventor's Fair
      14. Strip Mine / Wasteland / Ghost Quarter
      15. Hall of the Bandit Lord
      16. Scavenger Grounds
