    Golos has been BANNED! (And Worldfire Unbanned) | #421B

    Golos, Tireless Pilgrim has been BANNED! This announcement from the Rules Committee came as a shock to many (including us) considering it was the format's most popular Commander, according to EDHREC. But did Golos have to go? This episode we discuss what the ban means for the format. Was it a good call? Will Commander be better off? Plus, we delve into the Worldfire unbanning and give our perspective on both changes.

Very good, but

This is a really great podcast, but I miss it when it was just Josh & Jimmy. I think Josh & Jimmy should be together on every 3rd episode.

Podcast Used to be Good

A year or so ago I would’ve happily recommended this podcast for anyone interested in getting into Commander. Unfortunately that is no longer the case.

From my perspective the creators are suffering from burnout, are spread too thin, and the podcast is suffering because of it. They’re clearly devoting a lot of time and resources to their gameplay shows Game Knights and Extra Turns, and you can neatly trace an inverse relationship between the shows and the podcast: as the production value and production schedule of the gameplay shows have increased the podcast quality has decreased. The podcast is basically just set reviews and upgrade guides for preconstructed decks.

They used to regularly provide interesting strategy content, like drawing connections from Sun Tzu and how to apply them to Commander. Novel stuff! The podcast no longer has a unique voice or point of view. And even if set reviews are of interest to you the evaluation they provide isn’t that interesting, they talk for minutes on end about cards only to say “don’t play this card,” and often recommend the same cards, like Vedalken Orrery or Expropriate, over and over again.
