Unloved Commanders unite! Commander content creator MagicalHacker joins the podcast to discuss his interest in building EDH decks with Commanders who most players overlook for one reason or another. He has compiled a list of all Commanders on EDHRec with less than 50 decks to their name, and has collected almost 50 decklists from various players using those Commanders. We discuss why we both enjoy building Commanders from this list and why players overlook these cards (flavor, not using all relevant text on a card, mana cost, etc.). We also seek to challenge why people overlook these Commanders and hope that we inspire others to build around these unloved Commanders.
