With the release of Core set 2021 (M21) the rules committee has announced that all commanders with dies effects e.g [[Child of Alara]] will now have those effects trigger when they enter the command zone after death. What will this mean for our format now? Will any commanders become much better or will a new archetype appear?
This thread is for discussing Boris Johnson's appearance at the Liaison Committee. The session is due to start at 16:00 BST, and will last for 90 minutes.

I think you should be more careful with how you discuss the Commander format and characterize the player base. Your “April 2020 Rules Update” perfectly sums up the “US vs THEM” narrative that I believe you, and the RC perpetuates.
When discussing the Lutri ban, you said:
>“Knowing that it would certainly be banned, we were uncomfortable setting up those folks, who are in many ways our primary audience, for far greater disappointment.”
Proactively acting on a problem card for the health of the format is absolutely what I like to see from my RC. You reference your “Primary Audience” here, which I can only infer is the Commander Player base as a whole.
You later claim
>“This is where we say that it was a one-time thing and we don’t expect it to happen again, but that might not be entirely accurate…If another card comes along that also does something novel that is incompatible with the format, we’ll ban it immediately.”
Again, you are taking a proactiv... keep reading on reddit ➡
Michigan Independent Congressman Justin Amash just announced his exploratory committee on Twitter.
Amash was one of President Trump's fiercest GOP critics, which led to his leaving the party last year. He's been serving as an Independent ever since, and was notably the only non-Democrat that voted for both articles for impeachment. Before that, Amash was a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, and also chaired the House Liberty caucus, both of which were a thorn in the side of GOP leadership for years.
It goes without saying that he won't win, but I'm more interested in the potential for a shake-up in Michigan. Just a reminder, Trump carried Michigan by a little over than 10000 votes. Amash's district is Republican-friendly (PVI R+6), and he's won every election he's been in by 10 to 20 points.
What are his chances of winning the Libertarian Party's nomination?
Do you think he'll be able to hold onto a signif
Grant writing potential? Color of skin? Length of responses? Interview just a formality so the nepotism isn't as obvious?
We all know it exists, but perhaps not specifically. Any details you'd like to share about yours?
Discuss your hypothetical Conference realignment scenarios and how they might play out here!
Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Chiefs - Committee with Damien Williams and DeAndre Washington
De'Andre Swift, Lions - Committee with Kerryon Johnson (possibly Bo Scarbrough and Ty Johnson too)
Jonathan Taylor, Colts - Committee with Marlon Mack (possibly Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins too)
J.K. Dobbins, Ravens - Committee with Mark Ingram (possibly Gus Edwards and Justice Hill too)
Cam Akers, Rams - Committee with Darrel Henderson (possibly Malcolm Brown and John Kelly too)
Zack Moss, Bills - Committee with Devin Singletary
A.J. Dillon, Packers - Committee with Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams
Not a good look for fantasy purposes. I will say though, I could see Swift, Taylor, and Akers all winning the starting role on their team. But, I think we can all agree that none of their teams are going to completely dismiss the guy they currently have at RB1. The best chance of someone taking over is Akers, but it's important to keep in mind that Rams traded up in the third round of the 2019 d... keep reading on reddit ➡
Sheldon clarified that this means the new 3 mana rule from Wizards applies to Commander as well.
Also, note that companions never came from the sideboard in commander so the reference to the sideboard in the Wizards ruling doesn’t affect anything.
I’m a little bummed WotC went this way but i agree that it’s not worth it for commander to change the rules just for this. Maybe Lutri will be unbanned now? Though they obviously didn’t reflex unban.
Curious what people think!
Meeting is at 6:30PM. The agenda for the meeting can be found here. You can register your support this resolution here. Details for the Livestream of this meeting can be found on the first page of the agenda notes.
Thanks to /u/Daimen-McRae for pointing this resolution out in another post.
EDIT: Watching the Common Council meeting live, the City Attorney said that the Council could not discuss resolution 60764 as it was labeled as "NEW BUSINESS FOR REFERRAL WITHOUT DEBATE" and not enough public notice was given to bring this to the debate floor. The Mayor said this would likely be on the agenda for the meeting on 6/16.
Did I miss anybody? (EDIT: I added a bunch more cards when someone pointed out that some Commanders benefit from opponent's Commander death triggers as well, ie: Yahenni) Here is the search parameters I used,
Elenda, Child of Alara, and Kokusho are the "big ones", but some of the other applicable creatures are also now a lot more viable, like Roalesk and Yosei. I remember having to explain to a disappointed friend that Roalesk didn't trigger upon going to the Command Zone after he'd spent hours making a deck based around him, felt bad but now he can use that deck... keep reading on reddit ➡

He also had this to say on the Woj pod today:
“Ultimately as a white man, what I was hearing was that, ‘We need help.’ It’s not enough to just have support. There has to be a willingness to confront these things when you see them; be willing to take action.”
Very proud to be a Jazz fan today, and we are lucky to have a coach like Quin.
