What is Commander?
Commander is a special format of the Magic: The Gathering card game which uses a precise set of deck building rules. In Commander you build your deck around a legendary creature and the colors of Magic that creature represents. The deck consists of 100 cards, including your commander, that are generally all unique.
Why play Commander?
Commander is generally a laid back social format where alliances can be made and destroyed in order to try to prevail against everyone else at the table. Lasting memories of epic comebacks, crazy combos, and laughable punts are all par for the course in a commander night.
My play group consists of a few people who enjoy laughing, having a few drinks, and playing some cards well into the night. It’s therapy if you and your group make the setting fun.
