    The Commander Way: Lessons from Taoism I #310

    The Commander Way: Lessons from Taoism I #310

    Our show has a long tradition of examining real-world concepts and teachings and applying those lessons to Commander game theory. We’ve tackled Sun Tzu’s Art of War, Machiavelli’s The Prince and even the beginning stages of World War 1.
    On this week’s episode, we take a look at one of Jimmy’s favorite philosophies, Taoism and “The Way”, and analyze it through the lens of EDH gameplay.
