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

This week, I tell the story of a listener from The Netherlands. His name is Mark and he was a major inspiration to me years ago. Mark’s name over on the MtGSalvation.com forums all those years ago was Magnus Magicus. Believe it or not Mark, in part, shaped who I am today. You can now find Magnus Magicus on Twitter here.

This week’s technical section covers another couple tips for creating and fostering a smooth game play experience. This time, sticking with your gut feeling in the first few turns of the game to make quick, informed and decisive plays.

This week’s set retrospective: Mercadian Masques! A nose dive of a set after the powerhouses of the Urza block!
