Commander Summit 2019 | #275
5152
Show Notes: It's our fourth annual COMMANDER SUMMIT! Each year, we gather with prominent members of the EDH community to debate and discuss the hot button issues of the day. This time we are not limiting ourselves to only those who can get to our studio here in LA. No! We're opening up the floor to Commander Luminaries from across the spectrum. We reached out to many dignitaries in the EDHsphere, from content creators to members of the CAG and Rules Committee, to get their thoughts on things like: Should PW be legal as Commanders? Should the hybrid mana rules be changed? And of course, what cards should be banned or unbanned?  ----------

To The Rules Committee | #253
4670
Exciting news! Josh has been selected to the new Commander Advisory Group (CAG). This is a panel of people whose role is to provide official feedback on topics suggested by the Commander Rules Committee and raise issues that they believe need attention within the EDH format.

As a result, on today’s episode we thought it would be a good idea to discuss the most prominent and current hot-button Commander issues. That way we can find out what JLK’s stance is on each of them, what actions (if any) he will advocate for the RC to take, and why.
