Magic Arcanum – How to Make a Commander Deck

Welcome to Magic Arcanum! In this episode, we’re taking a casual breather after War of the Spark, looking at a format we know and love well here on the show – Commander! In this episode we take a look at the history of Commander from the Elder Dragon Highlander days to the funky rules, all through the lens of one of our favorite Commanders: Ishkanah, Grafwidow!
