Hello and welcome to another very special episode of Commander ad Populum! Commander for the people, by the people, for the people.

This week, I touch on a few of the plans I have for the future of the channel. Let me know what you think and what you’d like to hear. This is Commander for the people, after all! Wellness, representation, stories, interviews, the whole nine yards.

This week’s technical section focuses on the five different steps within the Combat Phase. A quick who’s who of how to navigate things like first strike and other subtle combat nuances.

This week’s set retrospective: Exodus!! We’re right in the middle of the ramp up to the most powerful point in Magic‘s history.


If you’d like to give me your thoughts on today’s topics, hit me up on Twitter @CadPopCast. You can find me on Facebook, here. 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. There are a bunch of new and great benefits associated with being a patron. Especially if you’re into altered art cards!
