The Unwritten Rules of Commander | 597

The comprehensive rules of Magic: The Gathering are almost 300 pages long. On top of all that, Commander has a whole set of UNWRITTEN rules that can be a lot less cut-and-dry.  Needless to say, this is a complicated thing to navigate. But have no fear! This episode we’re going over those unofficial rules and expectations of the format. From cards you aren’t supposed to play to game habits that are bound to make your opponents a bit salty, we’ll be covering everything. We’ll even go over the times when these “rules” should be bent… or broken!

2022 Year In Review | #506

Show Notes: 2022 is done, and it’s time to lay everything out on the table. (Yes, even 30th Anniversary Edition!) It’s been a year of new hosts, new events, new controversies, but most of all, lots and lots and LOTS of products. It might be fair to say that 2022 has had more Magic: the Gathering than any year in the history of the game.  This episode, we join together to go over the highs and lows of the year, giving our opinions on how things have gone and our hopes for what the future may bring. There’s a lot to cover so let’s jump into the 2022 year in review! (Note: The number we stated for “new commanders printed this year” was incorrect. We said there were 383. The actual number is 362.
