Tournament regulars Emma Handy and Cedric Phillips step out of the SCG Tour commentary booth and get knighted for this special War of the Spark episode! In order to take full advantage of the new planeswalkers, we’re slugging-it-out in the Brawl format, where those cards can be your Commanders.

Brawl Format Rules:
BRAWL!!! Thank you for featuring this format for the episode!! I’ve already watched it twice!! Next to Commander it’s my favorite way to play MTG & how I’ve introduced two players to the world of Magic & Commander!! Man, I’d love to play this on MTG Arena!!
Have you two thought of playing Pauper Commander? Commander decks completely made out of commons or Pauper legal cards on MTGO.
IF YOU DO!!
I would like to recommend bringing on the guys of Color Commontary podcast onto the show to play. They are excellent players and great guys who know a lot about the format and I believe they would be worthy opponents. Michael Petschek and Adrian Gwarzalez (Gonzalez) to be Knighted!!
I think Jiang Yanggu, wildcrafter is jimmy. Cause if you look at the the first letters in each part of his name. J Y And W. That’s all in jimmys name and J and W are his initials, plus Mowi looks like kiwi. That’s pretty awesome that jimmys unofficially ((even though we know he is)) a card is magic. Never gonna trade my Jiang yanggu and mowi. ((Building either a fun standard deck with them, or a commander deck with mowi loyal companion as the commander))
I'm confused... you're sitting on Niv-Mizzet, Rakdos and 1 other creature, while your 2 opponents have one large creature apiece. You KNOW that an opponent has and is most likely going to drop a Hydroid Krasis on their next turn, so you throw down a Kaya's Wrath and boardwipe? I guess they really were besties after all or that was a misplay if you ask me.
I don't get that play either. Why go all-in on the flying-destroying-everything plan and then put a halt to it at the final second? I would take my chance to close out the game than delaying, especially as she said it herself that her hand is garbage. I don't get her reasoning of sudden crackback creatures either, Jimmy has no red and Cedric is likely Hydroid Krasis-ing, or surely doesn't have whatever hasty creature to kill her in a single turn.
+Robert Norton Fair points. Though I think the cost wouldn't be such an issue for Brawl. Feels like you could just dig through the $1 bin for each new set and come up with something sweet (and if you do go for something pricier, you need only one copy) I could be wrong though.
+John Smith I can't speak for everyone else, but my friends and I are real casual players. We each have several decks and with commander having 100 card decks, it always feels different no matter how many times certain decks are played against each other.
Plus, keeping up with standard can get pretty expensive for me. I usually just use cards that I have.
Not exactly. It exiles itself as part of the spell, which means it would have to resolve. The counterspell, however, put it into the GY right from the stack so tge "Exile..." part of Finale didn't matter
