Welcome to the Commander RC Monday Morning Check-In for the week of 9 August, 2021.
We’re happy to report that more and more streamers and video creators are having their pregame discussions on camera. While Rule 0 chats are an important element to a positive Commander experience, so we’re pleased to see folks normalizing them.
The RC will have a special guest this week on stream: the one and only Ben Wheeler. The action gets underway at 8 ET on twitch.tv/commanderRC. In upcoming weeks, we’ve decided that each of the four RC members will play an upgraded Forgotten Realms Commander deck for the stream. We’ve each picked a different one and we’re allowed to swap out ten nonland cards of our choice as well as do a little tinkering with the mana base (without going too far). Sheldon’s article from yesterday features his; we’ll have to see what the other three come up with.
As always, if you’d like to discuss any aspect of the format or just hang out with some excellent people, head over to the RC Discord server at https://discord.gg/x5Q5PVg and jump into the conversation. We’re there quite often, so it’s one of the best ways to get a direct line into having a chat with us.
