Show Notes:

For the first time ever, the Commander Rules Committee has banned a card BEFORE its release. Lutri, the Spellchaser was been deemed unfit for EDH. We get JLK's insight from inside the Commander Advisory Group as the decision was being debated and Jimmy weighs in with his own opinions. Do they agree with the RC? What are the possible ramifications of this historic ruling? Tune in and find out.
