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

This week, I talk about making your own decisions. Doing your own research. Coming to your own conclusions. Making the best call, for yourself. It turns out, asking others to do the leg work in certain situations isn’t always the correct move.

This week’s technical section focuses on asking creative questions to divert attackers. Nothing super technical, really. Just a trend I’ve noticed of late.

This week’s set retrospective: All three Portal sets! Great art. Hidden gems. Great redundancy for the commander format, in some cases.


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!


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