JudgeCast #105 – Keen Commander

Is that reference in the title too obtuse? Nah.

On this episode, we once again have L3 and/or fantastic guest Eric “Raging” Levine on! As part of our series on formats, we cover Commander in depth. Learn how to play Commander! Learn what happens exactly when your Commander goes to the command zone! Learn what happens when you Oblivion Ring your opponent’s creature and then lose the game! Learn a lot about life and a little about love!

This episode is all about JudgeCast! We have some very special guests (Who could they be?!) on and discuss the past, present, and the future of JudgeCast in all its forms.

If you’re only in it for the education, this episode might not be for you. Take a couple weeks off, read the CR, take a nap. For the enfranchised fan, this is one of the best episodes ever.
