What do we like least about creating content? Each of us talk about why Ryan - It started as a way to kind of keep a record for my kids (hence the #MtGDad moments every episode). Also, Magic is something I’m very passionate about. Why do we each create content? How much time do we each spend on the content we create each week? PJ Zack - 2ish recording, 2ish editing (4-6 when it’s video), unknown on twitter, various amounts of time for graphic design, various amounts mailing things. 1-hour planning episode with Ryan, 1 hour if writing show notes Ryan - 2ish hours on the night we record, 1 hour planning the show (more if it involves building a deck). 1 hour proofing the show each week. 1 hour uploading the show. There are lots of other various time things as well. Creating content takes time The Magic community is pretty friggin awesome When you create content consistently with another person, you really develop a special bond You get to know a lot of really awesome people, both other content creators, and your listeners/viewers It’s really cool the first time you meet, or interact with someone who you’ve helped make their life better (even if it’s just in some small way) You get to learn...like a LOT. I’ve always been a lifelong learner, and there’s pretty much no end to the stuff you can learn. Audio, video, lighting, web design, how to use social media, technology, woodworking, you name it. What makes creating content worth it? Find a co-host(s) you have chemistry with, who you can trust, who are committed (unless of course you’re doing a 1-person show) Figure out the name. Seriously, take a LOT of time with this. We were almost “Commander Onramp”.(no we weren’t -z) Register the domain, look to see if there is anything else out there, past or present with the same/similar name Get accounts on all of the social media sites, Twitter, Instagram, Gmail account, patreon, Youtube, the sky is the limit here. Also, keep current with new social media things as they come about, and register those accounts. Figure out a schedule you can commit to and BE CONSISTENT we used LogoOrbit, and it can be pretty costly. There are cheaper alternatives out there, fiver, etc etc We placed our initial order for about $150 on April 29th, 2019. We Finished up with them on June 14th, and we must have gone back and forth like 50 times. We think it was w

They went on indefinite hiatus a little over a year ago. Release Date: August 7, 2020 Previews will be starting in mid July 332 cards 24 packs per booster box About $100 per VIP pack Boxes are preordering around $300 right now, so about $12 per booster 15-card booster packs, with two rares and two foil cards per pack! (And, yes, those foils can be up to two additional rares.) Supposedly so interesting two card combos? Maybe like Kiki-jiki + Pestermite? 2 first picks when drafting No fetch lands in this set Double masters will be available on Mtgo but NOT Arena Two non-foil showcase box topper cards included in each booster box What Do We Know? Doubling Season Mana Crypt Blightsteel Colossus Atraxa, Praetors’ Voice Kaalia of the Vast The Box Toppers… That we know about… What do we think about these. Reprint Imperial Seal? Or a bunch of other portal cards Reprint Cyclonic Rift? What’s the craziest thing they could do with this set?

Maybe because Commander is a way to express yourself, and that’s something people need now more than ever I’ve had more time to talk with folks while we play, and I’ve gotten to know more people, more intimately There’s almost always this time after the game, where we all turn the cameras to our faces, and just chat. Find out what things folks are struggling with in their lives, and hear their successes  Commander is an inherently social game, and we’ve seen the community come together during these trying times. It’s cool that we are getting to play with so many people we would rarely get to play with. We’ve gotten to play with many patrons, and it feels like a silver lining Shout out to SpellTable for developing a platform designed specifically for playing Magic via webcam Getting to play decks that are not part of our normal Meta Webcam magic becoming the new norm Let’s talk about it Erin got a chance to play in CFB’s CommandFest Online Finance Main Topic - The Positive Power of Commander
     
     “Second, it seems that the bigger card stores (f.i. SCG) have a small amount of available stock of popular cards left. Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, people will have more logistical trouble selling their collections at LGS's but also at MagicFests and other venues. This could result in a lower supply of secondary market cards. The demand for popular cards could surpass the supply much faster than during normal circumstances. This causes the stock to dry up and prices to rise due to organic demand. Not because cards are in higher demand, but in lower supply. Do note that this is speculation on my part, based on what I see and hear on the socials.”
