In fact, I think that people are more interested on Commander than any other constructed format, because it's fun and it doesn't requires any kind of psychological stress... The old Magic and the original target of the game, playing with friends. So, it seems strange the lack of more variety of Commander content, after all, and in the long term, is the format that drives most of the card prices.

@ Brancks, sorry but I completely disagree. Commander is already the most published format of high quality tabletop magic games on YouTube, and it really feels refreshing, that Cardmarket goes a different path in recording 1on1 Magic formats.

Also in my opinion Commander is the most (psychological) stressful format. Ever had 3 opponents rushing to kill your life total? That's too much politics.
In my opinion the format lacks in regulation (bannings), which makes games very tedious to play. Also Legacy/Modern/Pioneer all come with accurate Powerlevels whereas it is difficult to play Commander if not everybody is on the same page what cards maybe legal in your playgroup (Fetches, Duals, Mana Vault/Crypt).

Hi, well, I had in mind the non-competitive Commander format, the casual play. And the great decks of past times, like the Supergrowth control and variants (extended and vintage), the t2 deck with undiscovered paradise + winter orb + birds of paradise, and a black and red deck with goblins played on standard in the onslaught time, and the decks that I created by myself before the consolidation of internet. Different points of view, no problem. The last time I played Legacy, was an absurd race to win without many sense. Equal for the t2.

Have a good day!

Hi thanks for the great answer. I also enjoy a casual round of commander. But I find it sad, that does players can't appreciate a commander centered set (baldurs gate) cause everyone is eager to get his hands on old, broken, expensive cards to built the most broken decks. That's what worries me. I really think it would help commander to derive itself to new formats with different powerlevels, such as Vintage, Legacy, Modern, Pioneer Commander. This really would diversify the format and help solve those powerlevel issues.

Totally agree with you that Legacy is a "absurd" race. That's why I am currently into Pioneer :)

Have a good day, and thanks for the reply!

After 29+ years, constructed decks look worst than ever. I Would like to see articles with more flesh and less straw.

Thank you.
