    1. What is your table image?
      1. Define this. – What do players expect from you before the game begins?
      2. Reputations have a huge impact on how commander games go (Shout out to Richard who sent us some information on reputation)
        1. Most people don’t choose a table image
        2. Flashbulb memory.  It doesn’t take a long time to make one
      3. How did you get it?
        1. Can you?
      4. How to change it.
        1. Knowing how people will react ahead of time and possibly building a deck around it.

  1. Ep 33 Community Spotlight:
    1. What is the Plight of the Planeswalkers?
      1. Planeswalkers face a bevy of problems in commander
        1. Planeswalkers only get to activate ¼ as often in a 4 player game
          1. Someone at the table has a flyer or something unblockable
        2. Planeswalkers have to be defended against by 3 times as many opponents in a 4 player game
        3. They are “Scary” because folks read their ultimates
        4. PW Slow the Game down. If there are 2 or 3 PW in play, it is very hard for many players to keep all of their possible abilities in their head, and also what loyalty is required to use each ability. This leads to everyone reading the PW (often more than once!), which in turn leads players to (subconsciously, I think) placing more value on killing a PW, because it’s “THE THING” that everyone is talking about, and picking up to read.
        5. They get a bad rap for the VERY INFREQUENT times that someone gets off an ultimate. People remember the times an ultimate happens, but forget all the times you Spend 3GW to cast Ajani, Mentor of Heroes and put 3 +1/+1 counters on one of your creatures, and then never get to activate Ajani again
        6. PW get killed incidentally. If you have a PW with 4 Loyalty, and ANY other player has a 4/4 flying creature, guess where that creature is attacking? I believe this has a lot to do with the “Scary” bits I mentioned above, but also to the “Value”. Like what is more appealing: Killing off a scary PW, and putting your opponent down a card, and not having to remember what all those abilities on the card do. Or taking 1 of your 3 opponents from 30 to 26?
    2. What’s the Difference? Prior to Rivals of Ixalan, Planeswalkers like Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Vraska, Relic Seeker have seen quite a bit of play (Standard).  Current incarnation of Gideon also sees some play, but not nearly to the extent that Gideon Ally of Zendikar dominated the past couple of years.  In modern, cards like Liliana of the Veil (many midrange decks with Black and 8Rack) and Karn, Liberated (tron).  When we sit down to play, we are Planeswalkers and starting with Lorwyn, we can call upon Planeswalker friends.  How do we ensure that we can reward their loyalty? (keeping them safe).
    3. To the listeners: Is our meta different from yours?
