Welcome to another very special episode of Commander ad Populum. Commander for the people, by the people, for the people.

This week’s Community Section looks back at my funniest memory during an MtG drinking game and hopes to inspire people to make plans for when it’s safe to gather again. Better yet, jump on a streaming service or Spelltable and make some new MtG memories. It’s never too late to engage with friends and create new lasting memories. Especially when this holiday season has a good chance of being less-than-stellar.

Our Technical Section and set retrospective covers everything you need to know on the set Conflux! Running back all of Shards of Alara’s abilities, Conflux did have several MtG firsts. First printings of iconic Commander cards, as well as first-ever ability words giving names to classic Magic mechanics.

If you’d like to give me your thoughts on today’s topics, hit me up on Twitter @CadPopCast. Make sure to check out the CadPop Community Spotlight on Twitter as well. It has the social media tags for all the great people, and channels, mentioned. You can find me on Facebook, here: Facebook.com/CadPopCast. Both the Twitter and Facebook feeds have threads for each episode of Commander ad Populum. Let me know what you think.

If you’d like to support Commander ad Populum or my altered-art Magic card business, you can pledge on Patreon, here: Patreon.com/CadPopCast. There are a bunch of great benefits associated with being a patron. Especially if you’re into altered-art cards!


Big thank you to the official sponsor of Commander ad Populum, Fusion Gaming for making this episode, and future episodes possible!
