The QS Cast returns! Chaz Volpe, Morgan Wentworth, and Tarkan Dospil come together as the new panel - and in this episode they discuss the following:

  • Reserved List discussion (yeah, it's about that time again)
  • Interests - discussion about watching cards that trend down, and looking at trends before cards increase drastically.
  • Commander 2017 Recap and choice cards to consider.
  • Really bad jokes.

Cards we discussed:

From Commander 207:

Licia, Sanguine Tribune - has some potential in 1v1 Commander, adding third color is a new dynamic outside of Karlov of the Ghost Council

Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist - 1v1 Commander potential, and has an outside shot at Legacy?

Kess, Dissident Mage - Is probably too inexpensive, and can likely be the chase (and most expensive) card from Commander 2017. Starting price was $4.99 and that seems wrong. Under $10 still has upside, as there's a lot of growth potential here.

Alms Collector - Outside shot in Legacy. Powerful (and splashable) effect.
