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

This week, I highlight a couple other creators who I think are doing a great job in the community. Both for their approach and philosophy on the format of Commander, but also because they are great people who are sharing a great message for the community at large.

They are Anton, over at Collective Voyage, @AllHailBolas on Twitter. And, Brian Canada from Cure for the Common game, over on YouTube. He is @Cure_Game on Twitter.

This week’s technical section talk about being OK with leaving some value on the table and not beating yourself up over it. Magic is not a game of perfect information. We’re going to make mistakes. If we recognize that there can be learning when we make mistakes, we can move towards improvement as a player.

This week’s set retrospective: Nemesis! Not the most Commander-friendly set of all time, but there are some gems I would encourage people to try in their decks.


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: 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!
