  4. Ep 93 Community Spotlight:
    1. We tend to think of 5 years as recent, but we know a lot of our listeners (and Patrons) might be newer to Magic, so we thought it might be fun to go back and look at the past 5 years of Commander Precons.
      1. Value (We’re gonna discuss a lot of this below, but let's try and mention the others on this list as well)
        1. Disclaimer: The MtG market is in a bit of chaos, things seem way more expensive than they ever have been. (Overmaster is $40!). We certainly aren’t finance experts but both of us follow the Secondary Market pretty regularly.
      2. Cool Cards (We talked about this in our previous episode, but it’s still one of the most important pieces to the pre-cons long term)
      3. Fun to Play
      4. Balanced to play against each other
      5. Good enough to hang with your meta’s constructed decks
    2. There are lots of ways to evaluate Precons.
      1. C21 - Focused on Each College Identity
        1. Whole deck, singles price in ()
        1. Lorehold Legacies - $38.48 (Singles - 102.80)
        2. Prismari Performance - $39.25 (Singles - 71.66)
        3. Quantum Quandrix - $38.06 (Singles - 86.83)
        4. Silverquill Statement - $37.83 (Singles - 83.31)
        5. Witherbloom Witchcraft - $37.71 (Singles - 68.48)
        6. Bundle of all 5 - $189.04 (Mothership has this for $179.99)
      2. I’m gonna do the values of singles in the deck based on mtggoldfish, I did look on ebay, and most of the decks were costing about the same as the cost of the singles, with maybe a slight discount.
