Found Decks

 

  1. Thanks
    1. Mike Condon for the music and editing
    2. Tiffany for the logo/icon
  2. Ep 62 Community Spotlight:
    1. @commandcast – 00:12:15
    2. @jumbocommander – 00:12:15
    3. @HenryStukenborg – 00:12:59
    4. @UltimateGuard – 00:29:22
    5. @scryfall – 00:32:08
    6. @tappedout – 00:32:08
  3. League Update:
    1. Session one in the books. Big Jon is in the lead, with a whopping 10 points this first session. The most anyone got in the previous season was 8 points in a session. Kudos to you Big Jon!
    2. Ryan tells a story about being greedy
  4. Main Topic – Found Decks (aka using cards already in your collection)
    1. Definition: Found decks are like “Found Art” or “Found Object”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Found_object
    2. Disclaimer: The power level of a found deck probably depends a lot on the size of your collection. However, this can be a fun challenge to build a Commander or even Brawl deck from your draft leftovers.
    3. How do you go about starting a found deck?
      1. Ryan:
        1. Basically try and get inspired by a new Legendary creature
          1. Command Zone Episode 227 (or 224). Here is the link: http://commandzone.collected.company/82940b68
        2. Another way I get inspired is by a deck I’ve played against.
      2. CJ:
        1. Don’t organize collection
      3. Zack:
        1. Think of a theme or see a card I like
    4. How to build the deck
      1. Zack: good stuff boxes
        1. Look through all the good stuff boxes and some random (not good stuff) boxes pulling cards that are interesting
      2. CJ: Dig dig dig!
      3. Ryan: I have something I call “The cache”: Stanley 10 compartment box: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Stanley-10-Compartment-Deep-Pro-Small-Parts-Organizer-014710R/100375900?MERCH=REC-_-PIPHorizontal2_rr-_-203707065-_-100375900-_-N
        1. Not the way I normally build a deck, and that’s why I find the concept of “Found Decks” interesting
    5. Testing
      1. Ryan tests by playing games with friends (oftentimes after a league session)
      2. CJ does LOTS of goldfishing
      3. Zack doesn’t

Commander 2018 First Impressions

 

  1. Thanks
    1. Mike Condon for the music and editing
    2. Tiffany for the logo/icon
  2. Ep 61 Community Spotlight:
    1. endgamebastrop.com – 00:01:33
  3. League Update:
    1. Ryan won season 4. Top 5 standings:
      1. 33 – Ryan
      2. 24 – Vanessa
      3. 22 – Elliot
      4. 20 – Peter
      5. 17 – CJ
      6. … Zack had 10 points and came in 9th
  4. Main Topic – How do the C18 decks actually play
    1. Commander 2018 Decklists
    2. Subjective Reality – Played by Ryan
    3. Exquisite Invention – Played by Zack
    4. Adaptive Enchantment – Played by Elliot
    5. Nature’s Vengeance – Played by Isaac
    6. Games
      1. Game 1 – Elliot pulled off Genesis Storm for like 6, and hit Whitewater Naiads while already having Nylea’s Colossus in play
        1. Ryan cast Sower of Discord and named Ryan and Elliot. Elliot had previously cast Martial Coup for 7
        2. Zack liked Blinkmoth Urn but it was killed by Akroma’s Vengeance both games
        3. Bosh, Iron Golem was played
      2. Game 2. Ryan durdled his way to a win.
        1. Ryan cast Akroma’s Vengeance and killed all of Zack’s artifacts.
        2. Ryan got to cast Aminatou’s Augury, and it was OK, but didn’t win him the game, which you kinda want 8 mana sorceries to do.
        3. Ryan got to cast Entreat the Dead for it’s Miracle cost, and bring back 4 Creatures, and it was good!
        4. Zack got obsessed with Retrofitter Foundry + Tawnos, Urza’s Apprentice
    7. All 4 Decks playing against each other.
      1. Was a really fun experience! And I recommend listeners give it a try if they have a chance. Bonus: Listeners, if you did play all 4 decks against each other, give us a tweet, and let us know what you thought.

    3. @commandcast – 00:35:34
  3. Oopsies:
    1. 00:46:37 – Mindslaver is Legendary, so not a great copy target
    2. 00:48:34 – Survivors can’t block, so your opponents can’t run them into each other.
