A hangout-style podcast focused on the more casual side of Magic: the Gathering with a special focus on the Commander format.
Modern Horizons Set Review Part 1
Between family issues, work issues, and technical issues, these two Modern Horizon preview episodes have been a royal pain to get out the door. But they’re here! Part one today, part two coming soon.
This one was recorded halfway through preview season, so it only covers what we’d seen to that point. Interesting to see how things have developed in the month since we did this and now.
Any thoughts on the cards we covered? Favorites? We’d love to hear from you!
Win the Game Cards
This week, we talk about cards with the phrase “you win the game” in their rules text. Alternate win conditions are a fundamental part of the EDH experience, and we talk about ALL of them! (At least, the ones that are Commander-legal.)

Things we'd love to see added to Commander
If you’re a fan of the “some guys talking Magic between EDH games” style of episode we’ve done a few times, then you’re in for a treat this week. We start by talking about things we would love to see Wizards of the Coast or the Rules Committee add to the format. Over the conversation we divert into a whole bunch of topics like the power of fetches, some game and product design, and a lot more. Plus a little Dack Fayden love.
Digging for Diamonds #4 - Tempest Block
We’re back digging for diamonds again! This time, we take a look at Tempest Block (Tempest, Stronghold, and Exodus). Probably really where “modern” Magic began.
Jessie: Shadow Rift, Mirri's Guile, Tempting Licid, Shard Phoenix, Spike Cannibal, Anarchist
Jake: Vhati il-Dal, Magnetic Web, Shaman en-Kor, Invasion Plans, Manabond, Theft of Dreams
Eric: Needle Storm, Dracoplasm, Volrath's Gardens, Spitting Hydra, Skyshroud War Beast, Shattering Pulse

Commander 2021 Deck and Set Review
This week, the crew talks about the new set of five Commander 2021 preconstructed decks officially releasing on April 23. Favorite new cards, reprints, and more. Also, there might be a bit of a rant. Language warning. I get it out of the way early, at least.
Back to School - The Strixhaven Set Review
It’s set review time! The latest Magic: the Gathering set, Strixhaven: School of Magic, is about to release. We take the One Mana Short trademarked informal approach to our set review, and just talk about cards whenever the conversation takes us there. We cover the set as a whole first, then just start riffing on cards.
