  1. I just recently got into commander would you guys be willing to do some brain storming around toshiro umezawa because i really want to use him as my first commander but i have no idea how to make a deck around him

  2. The thing I want to see the most in the Command Zone, and also in MTG in general, is a true Azorious deck, which has one and only one purpose – to suck all the fun out of the game. It doesn't has a winning condition. It doesn't even care if it wins or not. It plays only cards that hinder other players from doing anything – no untapping lands, no attacking, no using creatures, removels, nothing. It's main goal is to put the game into a complete halt, then just keep going until everyone decked out or get completely insane. Man, that would be a glorious thing to see. Naturally, Josh should be the one to play it. If only it could be pulled off…

  3. Jimmy, yesterday I saw you on VGHS. I saw the series years ago but yesterday I watched it in Netflix and in my mind I Said "Wait, I already saw Ted… Uhm… Where?" and BAM! YOU'RE THE BEST JIMMY!

  4. It's a pity that mana punishing cards like Psychic Venom and Manabarbs are distant memories. If you could get these out and have a few Earthquakes as well, the ability to punish your opponent for tapping her/his lands for mana was wonderful. R.I.P. Great old spells.

  5. I have a lot of nostalgia for death touch first strike combo and my very first deck was nightscape apprentice who would give first strike to all my stuff. It was a very bad deck but to this day I still keep my playset of nightscape apprentice. Memories

  6. Thank you guys for telling me about card kingdom!I've just bought a whole a new deck for commander and I'm so excited for it to come in! I personal favorite… VAMPIRES! and super thankful to you guys for offering so much and to card kingdom for it to have the cards at a great price! Thank you very much, I owe it all to you guys. I'm definitly going to be having lots of fun.

  7. Every day I open Game Knights videos to find them full of white-bordered Pauper staples, brown artifacts, powerful combos, silly cards and all manner of delicious and satisfying Magic.

  8. I loved that episode! I started playing MTG at 11 years old, back when the 5th edition was brand new. It totally got me nostalgic of the good ol' times. Seeing a large number of those older looking cards was amazing and brought back some sweet memories. I also remember how gloriously crappy was my first deck too. Fun times. 😛
