Quote from Bam_Bam_417 »Quote from Sergeant_Wolf »I've heard that Commander is a casual format, so if that is true, I'd probably be interested in it, as a new player.
What is Commander all about? And how frequently do decks rotate out?
EDH is a format where terrible things can and will happen. You will get boardwiped. You will get ganged up on 3-1. You will lose to an infinite combo after you have established a lead in board position. Accepting that these things can happen and enjoying the flow of the game is the best way to play.
All that being said, I wouldn't stop playing EDH for anything.
It is the most fun I have had since I started the game back in 2000.
It's also one of the safest formats in Magic as far as knowing what you buy isn't going to become worthless later. Competitive formats can be a tumultuous ride even in formats like Modern. Commander, if you end up buying a Doubling Season, it's never going to rotate out, get banned, or become worthless due to a meta shift making the deck it slots into ineffective.
