Commander Cookout - How Partners DEFINE cEDH | Competitive Commander Deck Building & Analysis

Commander was once defined by 2- and 3-color decks, but the printing of Commander 2016, enabled by the raw power of a manabase built on Fetchlands plus typed-dual lands created the conditions for one of the earliest cEDH metagames to take shape. Want to know how we arrived at a world dominated by Blue Farms and Sisays and Najeelas? Tune in to this week's episode as John dissects the design choices by Wizards of the Coast which created the modern cEDH metagame as we know it!
