        1. Editor’s Note: timecode – 00:34:25
          1. Oddly enough, the Commander CJ and Zack are talking about is IN FACT Freyalise. It’s her song after all.
      2. Kamahl’s Druidic Vow
    7. Multi-Color
      1. Tatyova, Benthic Druid
      2. Muldrotha, the Gravetide
        1. Editor’s Note: timecode – 00:40:23
          1. I believe CJ got this ruling incorrect. Muldrotha should allow you to play lands from your graveyard. Here is the relevant comprehensive rule:
            1. 115.2a Playing a land is a special action. To play a land, a player puts that land onto the battlefield from the zone it was in (usually that player’s hand). By default, a player can take this action only once during each of his or her turns. A player can take this action any time he or she has priority and the stack is empty during a main phase of his or her turn. See rule 305, “Lands.”
      3. Tiana, Ship’s Caretaker
        1. Editor’s Note: timecode – 00:43:20
          1. I believe Zack makes an error here, as he likens mana rocks to equipement, which isn’t true (unless maybe we are talking about Paradise Mantle).

    2. Commander is very different from a 1 on 1 format
    3. List of ways to win a game of Commander
      1. Attacking
        1. Normal Beatdown, tokens, etc
        2. Big Swing, like Craterhoof Behemoth
        3. Infect, like Triumph of the Hordes
        4. Voltron, like with auras and equipment, ala Uril the Miststalker
      2. Combo
        1. Infinite Mana
          1. Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth
        2. Lockout/Stax
          1. Stasis + Eon Hub
          2. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir + Knowledge Pool
        3. Karmic Guide + Reveillark + <sac outlet> + Murderous Redcap

        4. Door to Nothingness
      6. Playing 2,3,4 cards in the same turn, that add up to value town
        1. This is developing an engine.  Not infinite combo but just something that quickly outpaces what your opponents might be .doing.
      7. A List of cards that often end games
        1. Cyclonic Rift
        2. Insurrection
        3. Craterhoof Behemoth
        4. Rite of Replication
