Should Commander require 10 poison counters to eliminate a player? The argument has been around almost as long as the format has, and John has been hearing this question ever since Scars of Mirrodin block, when Infect was the new player in town. Are there good reasons to keep poison as-is, particularly with the Toxic keyword looming on the horizon with the impending release of All Will Be One? Can anything save us from the mighty Skrelv's merciless bite? Or all we all just a little too worried about a mechanic which has historically been underrepresented in the format? This week, we analyze how poison fits into our format!
