    “One card I’ve been cutting from decks these days are wrath effects” - Craig, the man who turn 4 boardwiped

    • Eric
      Eric Month ago

      100% this

    • OddAssCity

      I am the 800th like.

      Sean Edgar Month ago

      Honestly 2 board wipes in 4.5 rotations sucks. Lost interest especially with the multiple ravenous chupacabra triggers

    • Souropod Lover
      Souropod Lover Month ago

      @ItzMimz who plays 8

    • ItzMimz
      ItzMimz Month ago +5

      Going from 8 to 3 wraths per deck is still cutting

  • NoOne Knows
    NoOne Knows Month ago +389

    I admittedly do like to see Extra Turns more, because there are less vfx and more raw gameplay. Glad they keep making these, I definitely think that these are better overall.
    Edit: Holy Shit, what a comeback!

    • Ecthelion
      Ecthelion Month ago +2

      @mgarratt101 If you think your "Josh is great and carrying Jimmy" comment is of any value you are beyond lost. Constructive criticism is welcome you are just voicing dislike of a singular person. (And what any of that has to do with me using an alias I have no idea)

    • Ecthelion
      Ecthelion Month ago +1

      @karmandev I just read these comments and frankly it is amazing how these people apparently consume a product where they straight up dislike involved persons.
      Like why do you watch then? Just to complain in the comments and make others feel bad? Good to see some positivity.

    • Simon Karman
      Simon Karman Month ago +1

      I case The Command Zone crew reads all the negativity in this thread: I just want to say you're all making awesome content and I honestly like everyone of you! You are doing an amazing job with these videos, keep them coming 💪

      John Month ago

      These remind me of what the channel used to be. It's what I subbed for in the first place. They feel so corporate now.

    • Angelo Rosales
      Angelo Rosales Month ago +4

      @Michael Garratt I like Jimmy. I don’t really agree with what your saying at all. Josh and Jimmy are two good friends with good experience in film making. I think your comment is very mean spirited and your attitude aswell, judging by the way you talk to other people.

  • Alex Moult
    Alex Moult Month ago +226

    This was such an awesome game, and holy shit what a comeback from Rachel's deck. I just LOVE watching her play - she is such a fun presence, always down from a laugh and a good time, and also builds awesome decks. Love seeing her more on the show!

    • Droid6689
      Droid6689 Month ago

      @Ecthelion In a format that often sees numerous board wiped, board state isn't all it is cracked up to be.

    • Ecthelion
      Ecthelion Month ago

      @Droid6689 Of course if you take into account the board state as well and not just life totals.

    • Droid6689
      Droid6689 Month ago

      Is it really a comeback when you are up 30 to 3?

    • EXPrime8
      EXPrime8 Month ago

      @LanaSavage I'm pretty sure I remember hearing that Rachel dissembled her Orvar deck sadly

    • Yautja Prime
      Yautja Prime Month ago +1

      For a laugh... lol not from

  • Angrier every day
    Angrier every day Month ago +268

    maybe Rachel's deck IS alive, or she secretly holds the millennium puzzle

    • Finn The Hydra
      Finn The Hydra Month ago

      @Kitsu137 I think they did finally explain what the puzzle did right before or during the duel between Yugi and The Pharaoh. Basically you could alter fate in your favor just by willing it, but the power would get stronger the more dire of a situation you were put in. Basically it has the power of Plot Armor 😂

    • Kitsu137
      Kitsu137 Month ago +2

      @Yautja Prime From Yugioh, they magical artefacts from ancient Egypt. Eye belongs to villain from season 1, it lets you read people's minds and see cards in their hand and a bunch of evil magic stuff. Puzzle main characters. The show doesn't go into what it does in the english (don't know in the japanese) but it basically increases your chances of getting what you need to survive to the next turn / win, depending on how bad of a situation you are in, how high the stacks are and how skilled you are at the game you are playing, the higher each of those factors in, the more likely you are to get what you need.

    • Yautja Prime
      Yautja Prime Month ago +1

      @Max Lombard Gotcha, thanks! :)

      What are the millennium puzzle and eye? A D&D thing?

  • Nick Ivany
    Nick Ivany Month ago +122

    36:06 Craig plays morphic pool untapped despite having only one opponent and because of that he was able to have the mana up for mana drain

    • Heironymus
      Heironymus Month ago +3

      @Heinous Rat the phase out mechanic phases out any equipment/auras attached to the creature. So that is exactly what the card does.

    • SFH Eclipse_YT
      SFH Eclipse_YT Month ago +2

      @murilo garbo He tapped the morphic pool for blue and another land to tap the izzet signet

    • Jack Fromage
      Jack Fromage Month ago +1

      @Dudesomeify , yeah I know, thats why I said "Lazy cheater", he played fast without really looking and he made a mistake because of it. I don't blame him, people "Lazy cheat" all the time.

    • Dudesomeify
      Dudesomeify Month ago +9

      @Jack Fromage thief thinks all men steal, don't be so hasty to call out cheaters - it was probably just an honest mistake, could happen to anyone

    • Jack Fromage
      Jack Fromage Month ago +1

      Yeah classic lazy cheater

  • Cock Man
    Cock Man Month ago +175

    Lets be real, Evan’s intro with the “affects of vfx”, he has definitely been waiting to be able to do that

    • Emily Smith
      Emily Smith Month ago +5

      Using your talents to do fun stuff is awesome. ^-^ We love you Evan! Petition to enlist more Evan games!

    • Aubsty

      And we don't blame him

  • Stalzer2002
    Stalzer2002 Month ago +23

    My internal monologue when Craig takes out Murph and Evan instead of Rachel. "He's probably going to regret that"

    • LuLu
      LuLu Month ago

      I mean honestly with his life total, it was a steep hill to climb either way.

  • nik700
    nik700 Month ago +77

    -What did we learned today kids?
    -To never count Rachel out!

  • OniArticx
    OniArticx Month ago +51

    Love how murph didn't even introduce himself. Its like " You know what it is"

  • Joshua Carr
    Joshua Carr Month ago +53

    I will never stop hyping Rachel, love seeing her so present in vids

    • Mars
      Mars Month ago +2

      Josh, Jimmy, and Rachel definitely bring the best energy to the tables

    • SaltyAlters
      SaltyAlters Month ago +5

      She's so knowledgeable in terms of the game as well as how to build a deck well.

  • Alex S.
    Alex S. Month ago +55

    I ALWAYS love seeing Rachel play! I audibly screamed @41:30 when I realized what she was doing! I love all the players and everyone had some great plays. More Extra Turns please!!!

  • Gideon Curry
    Gideon Curry Month ago +1

    Rachael’s laugh is contagious, i usually watch Game Knights while running on the treadmill and Rachael makes it so much harder to catch my breath 😂😂😂

  • Esoteric
    Esoteric Month ago +1

    That comeback from Rachael was one of the best i've ever seen

  • Jon Gailey
    Jon Gailey Month ago +29

    Love the synergy between Ludevic and Sidar Kondo. Getting through with attacks and drawing an extra card each turn.

    • evilanimegenious
      evilanimegenious Month ago +1

      Sidar also goes really well with arcades.... What blockers :D *swings for 40 dmg on 6 bodies*

    • Emily Smith
      Emily Smith Month ago +7

      Extremely cool deck - absolutely hamstrung by Toxrill. But dang if Break Through the Line wasn't the spiciest secret tech of the game! Awesome stuff

  • Félix Weber
    Félix Weber Month ago +29

    2:10 "What's up everybody, it's Craig: All the creatures in my deck are big bombs." - off to a great start 😆

  • EspeonLover320
    EspeonLover320 Month ago +19

    I haven't watched the full episode yet, but I already like Evan. His voice is nice and he brings a lot of great energy to the table. Wish we could see him on Game Knights at some point soon

  • AdaWongMistress

    Rachel is such a good deck builder. Also the heart of the cards is strong with her.

  • Hoozooh League
    Hoozooh League 13 days ago

    Everytime you bring someone new from your team, it always looks like great people. You guys at the Command Zone really built something special. Real happy for you people

  • Brad Fick
    Brad Fick Month ago +3

    That was a wonderful game. I love seeing interaction in commander. There are so many channels that seems like all they do is try to hurry to their win con and completely let everyone else just get away with everything.

  • Drunk Gerbil
    Drunk Gerbil Month ago +11

    You guys have so many amazing people on the team, please more Extra Turns!

  • voidprism_studios
    voidprism_studios Month ago +1

    That comeback is what makes me love magic. She freaking popped off

  • Adam King
    Adam King Month ago +14

    I find it funny Craig just said in an episode of the Commnad Zone he is playing less wraths and what does he do like turn 3??? Damnation!!!! Lol 😆

    • Dragon Fyre
      Dragon Fyre Month ago

      @Rychu Gaming He has tutors to go get them as well.

    • Rychu Gaming
      Rychu Gaming Month ago

      Maybe he only has living death and that 2 wipes

  • Wrap It Before You Tap It

    The last moments of Craig vs Rachel was clutch

    Those last few turns were beautifully brutal.

  • Daniel

    “I was worried it was getting a little dodgy in the middle part, but then that finale!”

  • Target Dreamer
    Target Dreamer Month ago +1

    Getting that Bane of Progress and Glen Elendra Archmage into the graveyard was the clutch of the game!

  • Vitor Maione
    Vitor Maione Month ago +6

    I'm at 2:50 and I'm already excited to see that Racheel is playing Sidisi. As a long time moxfield follower, this deck has been the inspiration for my Sidisi deck. Hope it performs well!

  • Mangan8er
    Mangan8er Month ago +6

    Really glad to see the VFX team getting their dues. Hope to see Evan again!

    Rachel is easily turning into my favorite mtg player in Game Knight and Extra Turns.

  • Caleb Brown
    Caleb Brown Month ago +1

    I can’t help but feel bad for Murph, looks like a really fun aggressive deck at just the worst table possible for it. Rooting to see it again sometime!

  • GoldRyu
    GoldRyu Month ago

    That was a incredible Duell 🥰 the Last 10 minutes killed me, thank you for that 😂😂

  • starmanda88

    This is the first time I see 2 creatures with deathtouch clash in combat and none of them died.

  • Paul Breen
    Paul Breen Month ago

    This was a great game! I have a new artifact, reanimator deck so seeing all these graveyard shenanigans makes me happy :)

  • Robert Franklin

    Sidisi is my favorite, oldest commander deck I own. Nice to see her get some more love!

  • Timmy the Sorcerer

    That 7/7 Slug thing is doing so much work!!

    Geatest comeback ever, really nice match with old fashioned combat that is not so common to find in extra turns but I love it

  • Milo HoBo

    Always a fun game with Rachel and Craig!

  • Dowg The pug
    Dowg The pug Month ago +8

    nice to meet more members of the crew. Just wondering if Arthur could make a return since his deck he played last time was super interesting!

  • RodCU
    RodCU Month ago

    Love seeing Toxrill. Glad it survided enough to do work.

  • makeththeman
    makeththeman Month ago

    My usual pods all play multiple infinite combos usually out by turn 5 or 6. Its nice to tune into a pod where everything is powerful but fun at the same time. I do want to see Rachel play orvar the all-form again though (the deck from when she was on IHYD)

  • Harrison Thorn
    Harrison Thorn Month ago

    I built a defender deck around Sidar Kondo and Ludevic, I'm thrilled to see the pair get some more love!

  • Nickster NYR
    Nickster NYR  Month ago

    Honestly Craig should be proud of himself, he put in the most work and lost in the end because he was 1 counterspell short. But still had fun I'm sure 😂

  • Butt Nugget
    Butt Nugget Month ago

    Saying "It resolves" to someone playing a land is an old joke but still gets me every time. lol
    Great game! Was lots of fun to watch!

  • nuclearphish
    nuclearphish Month ago +1

    I liked the part where Evan said "It's slimein' time!" and then proceeded to slime all over everyone.

  • Lionbrian10
    Lionbrian10 Month ago

    Really good interaction and counterplay this game. Only bad thing that stuck was toxill but in the end another deck had a comeback. This table definitely needed more graveyard hate 😂 Awesome watch though

  • Arridu Eldes
    Arridu Eldes Month ago

    Toxeril AND sheoldred? That's just nasty and I love it! That aside at the end of the game I'm just picturing the zombie Craigs chanting "One of Us One of Us" while they rendered original Craig unliving

  • Scoop McDeck
    Scoop McDeck Month ago

    This game definitely lived up to the title of the video. Great game!

  • Elerosse

    Craig's deck literally worth more Than all the others combined. 😆

  • TheSlothyWeeb
    TheSlothyWeeb Month ago

    I'm really surprised they don't have a discord so that way the community can get together and play commander games together online. I've been really trying to find new friends to play with but not sure what discords to join so i can have fun and play

  • R Y

    Just want to give some love to some of the best commercials I've seen in some time on any form of media. Would've never thought a mobile game and ear buds commercial on a youtube video where I watch people play magic the gathering would be more well done and thought out than anything on tv.

  • KismetSoul
