  6. Ep 55 Community Spotlight:
    1. We tried to build a mutate infect deck a while back and the results weren’t great, so I went back to the drawing board after seeing Coyle from Guardian Project Podcast. This time we’re focusing mostly on mutate and swinging more than we are infect, but you know me, there’s still a tiny bit of infect for the funsies. 
    2. Deck List: https://archidekt.com/decks/617252#Mutate_for_Days
      1. Discuss
    3. Commander: Otrimi, the Ever-Playful or Brokkos 
      1. Mention how fun (and maybe how expensive it was) to play with the comic book style art.
      2. Only 446 Decks on EDHrec at time of recording
      3. Highlight some of the cool things this deck can do!

  5. Ep 52 Community Spotlight:
    1. Commander death and exile triggers rules change
      1. Why do we think this is?
        1. Maybe because Commander is a way to express yourself, and that’s something people need now more than ever
        2. I’ve had more time to talk with folks while we play, and I’ve gotten to know more people, more intimately
        3. There’s almost always this time after the game, where we all turn the cameras to our faces, and just chat. Find out what things folks are struggling with in their lives, and hear their successes 
    2. Commander is an inherently social game, and we’ve seen the community come together during these trying times.
      1. It’s cool that we are getting to play with so many people we would rarely get to play with. We’ve gotten to play with many patrons, and it feels like a silver lining
      2. Shout out to SpellTable for developing a platform designed specifically for playing Magic via webcam
      3. Getting to play decks that are not part of our normal Meta
    3. Webcam magic becoming the new norm
      1. Let’s talk about it
    4. Erin got a chance to play in CFB’s CommandFest Online
    5. Finance
  6. Main Topic - The Positive Power of Commander

 

  •  “Second, it seems that the bigger card stores (f.i. SCG) have a small amount of available stock of popular cards left. Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, people will have more logistical trouble selling their collections at LGS's but also at MagicFests and other venues. This could result in a lower supply of secondary market cards. The demand for popular cards could surpass the supply much faster than during normal circumstances. This causes the stock to dry up and prices to rise due to organic demand. Not because cards are in higher demand, but in lower supply. Do note that this is speculation on my part, based on what I see and hear on the socials.”

      3. Zack discusses with Ryan
      1. Why?
      2. Ryan discusses some with Zack
    2. Deck outside Zack’s comfort zone - Boros / Aggro
      1. Lenny (@LennyWooley)
        1. Mono red is outside my comfort zone. I can brew it but I don't like playing it because it's not great at defense and I can't make plans with its card advantage. 
        2. 5 color is also really tough unless I have a very specific idea in mind. Otherwise I get paralyzed by all the opportunity
        1. I struggle with playing blue. In particular the whole counterspell/draw go style. I feel bad countering someone's spell and even worse countering their commander, because I find it less enjoyable to play, I play it less which means I'm worse at it.
      2. Craig -(@Scraignoth)
        1. I'm an Aggro/Midrange player and have always struggled with control. I taught myself how to play control and that helped me to understand how better to fight against control. That being said blue is the color that eludes me the most but I'm always trying to expand my prowess in commander. my main problem is I'm a very proactive player and blue intrinsically plays a reactive game
      3. Andy Bently (@BentzMr)
        1. my main problem is I'm a very proactive player and blue intrinsically plays a reactive game
        2. After he left his comfort zone to play black - It took a second to get in a groove cause of what I’m typically drawn to, but once I got going, I really hit a groove. I kinda role played it. Since I’m a Dimir mage, I approached it as I was spying on everyone else to learn their secrets
        3. #MtgAmatureFinance also taught me what I don’t really like so I avoid spending on stuff that won’t hold my interest long term
      4. Chris von Doom (@chrisvondoom1)
        1. Discuss
      5. Four patrons have specifically spoken about blue control
    3. What did some of our patrons have to say?
  8. Main Topic - Decks Outside Our Comfort Zone
    1. Stretch one’s horizons to include new things
    2. Understand your opponents strategies better
    3. Poker example, players that only put their chips in when they have the best hand
    4. So, has anyone out there stepped outside their comfort zone? Let us know!
  9. Wrap it up - why should we play decks outside of our comfort zone

    1. Let’s summarize what virtualEDH.com is, and some of the cool features
      1. Person who’s turn it is is Highlighted! (anyone can use spacebar to change who’s turn it is)
      2. There’s a single button to click that flips your video around so it looks right-side up!
      3. Infect counter
      4. Lifetotal tracker
      5. Can add your commander and it shows up as hoverable under your life total
      6. Turn timer
      7. Best Feature: You can click on a card in play and it will pull it up (and retains a history of cards you’ve searched for this way). IMO this feature is 100% worth trying this site out
      1. How many people, and how long have you been working on it
      2. What are some enhancements that you have planned?
      3. Also, we noticed no voice, and I believe this was intentional, is that something we might see in the future?
        1. Specifically a way for someone to use their phone to display their boardstate, and another computer to join the game as a spectator to see everyone else's board?
      4. Any plans for mobile?
    2. Some questions for Adam and Jon
    3. Place for questions from Chat

  5. Commander Rules!
    1. Disclaimer: Zack and I have played a total of 5 or so games of cEDH between us, so we are by no means experts
      1. EDH pushed to the limit, with no compromises made in deck building. All legal cards/combos are fair game, as is stax, etc
    2. What is cEDH?
      1. We both love EDH, and it felt important for us to educate ourselves on cEDH
      2. We don’t plan on becoming Competitive Social or anything like that
      3. Since cEDH is part of EDH we wanted to have some experience playing so that we can have a frame of reference when discussing. 
        1. Here’s a good link: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/list-multiplayer-edh-generals-by-tier/
      4. We spent a lot of time reading about, and watching videos on cEDH, researched quite a few decks in the meta.
        1. http://budgetbrews.club/
        2. Discord: http://budgetbrews.club/#Discord
      5. Budget EDH page
      6. We thought folks out there might find it interesting if they have never thought about venturing into cEDH territory
    3. Why are we doing this episode?
      1. Ryan - 4 Color Curious Control, helmed by Thrasios + Vial Smasher
        1. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/4c-rashmi-curious-control/
        2. This Deck was suggested to me by “Someone” from the Spike Feeders via Twitter DM. Maybe Jim???
          1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-KHswpZF1k
        3. Video about Curious Control by the Lab Maniacs (Warning, they may have some adult language)
        1. Based on: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/urza-paradox-scepter/
        2. Zack’s Version: https://archidekt.com/decks/420449#Urza_Power_Scepter_-_Semi_Budget_(cEDH)
      2. Zack - Urza, Power Scepter
    4. Let’s talk about the decks we’ve made
      1. Played with Austin, and PJ from CommanderReplay
        1. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrudMyVbtvyVyadYddhousA
        2. https://twitter.com/CommanderReplay
        1. Players
          1. Austin was playing Gitrog
          2. Zack was playing a borrowed Prosh + Food Chain combo deck
          3. PJ was playing a Boros, Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero deck
          4. Ryan was playing Curious Control
        2. PJ won on turn 4 or 5 with Gerrard, Loyal Retainers, and Grinding Station
        3. I had no idea what was going on. Austin was very kind and offered me advice, but a control deck is pretty hard to pilot when you’re not sure what is going on, and what all is possible (Hard to know what to counter, for example)
      2. Game 1
        1. Zack was going to get a new pod going, and we were waiting for some players to finish, so Austin, PJ, and I decided to shuffle up for a 3 player cEDH game
        2. PJ ended up winning this one is similar fashion, although, I think I did bad things like cast a Fire Covenant at sorcery speed, and countered the wrong spells, and basically stifled Austin (playing Gitrog), and was essentially king maker
      3. Game 2
    5. Games we played at Mothership
      1. Ryan
        1. Man, I am BAD at this format. I think a lot of this is unfamiliarity, and I’m sure that will come with time.
        2. It’s really interesting to play with all of these crazy combos/busted cards that I don’t normally play with, at least not in this density in my decks
        3. I feel like there is potentially more shuffling than in a normal game, because so much of the game is DEPENDANT on your starting hand. I think this is true because in a regular game of EDH, there is more time for you to play catchup, and often time folks will leave you alone if you’re mana screwed. That being said, being able to play a whole game in under half an hour is pretty sweet
        4. Fighting battles on the stack is pretty interesting, and not something we tend to see a whole lot of in our local meta
        5. I feel like I’m less able to express myself through Deck-building in cEDH, because I feel like many/most of the card choices for any given deck are necessary/required. Maybe my thoughts on this will change over time? I just know that many of the goofy/random type things I like to do in regular EDH are not viable in cEDH (example: Mr. OPC). That being said, I still think cEDH is pretty cool, and I want to get to know the format better.
        1. Playing cEDH was very disorienting the first time because I was playing a borrowed deck, but I still had fun!
        2. Ryan and I played tonight against each other and it was only slightly less disorienting than the last time, but it was a little easier knowing the deck and I still had fun.
        3. I think mulling correctly is important. I think you want to mull aggressively to get at least part of your combo or cards to get your combo.
        4. To play cEDH seriously I think you would have to study the meta of tiered cEDH decks to be able to combat them when playing yours and when playing EDH I’d rather be surprised at what people are playing vs seeing a commander and knowing it’s exact lines of play. 
        5. I’m interested in casually playing cEDH when opportunities arise and I def see the appeal to it. 
      2. Zack - 
        1. We made sure that all 4 people knew exactly what we were signing up for, and I think that’s important. 
        2. Also, I think most cEDH players genuinely DON’T want to pub stomp. 
        3. Playing a crazy tuned cEDH deck versus non cEDH decks doesn’t seem like it would be much fun for the cEDH player
      3. We were playing socially, and having fun with folks during the games of cEDH that we played. 
    6. Our thoughts about cEDH
  6. Main Topic - Our First Foray into cEDH
    1. What do you think about cEDH? Have you tried it? Let us know your experiences!
    2. Commander is many things, to many different people. cEDH is just one way to play this game, and it’s a valid way to play. 
    3. EDH and cEDH are not mutually exclusive. PJ and Austin both had non-cEDH decks with them, and we had fun playing a few games of regular EDH before we dove into cEDH 
    4. It’s really cool that there are so many different ways to play Magic, and even with Commander there are many ways to play. Magic is a great game, and everyone should be allowed to enjoy it the way they like
