Carnagecast 54: Shuffle Up and Deal

Carnagecast logo. The grim reaper leaps in the air, strumming a power chord on his scythe-guitar.It’s all card talk on Carnagecast this week. Ray’s looking forward to the 2014 Commander decks for Magic: the Gathering, and the imminent Khans of Tarkir block. Tyler’s got his eye on The Sleeper Below for Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game, and the just-announced For the Greater Good expansion beyond that.

Ray explains what he likes in particular about the Commander format. Tyler worries there may be no love in his love-hate relationship with Netrunner, and confesses deckbuilding is his least favorite part of constructed card games, a genre of game founded entirely on building decks. Ray’s solution is to play more games until deckbuilding comes naturally, which is a winning strategy no matter what, when you think about it.
