The Command Zone

Usually, I don’t watch gaming streamers. If I want to play video games or board games, I want to do it myself versus watching others play. However, The Command Zone Youtube channel is one of my exceptions. The Command Zone is a Magic the Gathering channel where they almost always play Commander. Commander is a format where one card is your “Commander” and your deck compliments this one creature. This is the form of Magic I play mostly because I can utilize every single card since the game’s existence in the early ’90’s. If you play Magic the Gathering, I cannot recommend this Youtube channel enough.

One of the best episodes of Game Knights. Found on the Game Knights Youtube Channel.

Hosted by Josh Lee Kwai and Jimmy Wong, they bring two other players onto their show to play a round of Commander. These players vary, but I like how they bring a variety of players with different play styles to their videos. I’m currently watching the episode where they bring a fan onto their show to play. This episode has been my favorite as the fan they chose is super good at the game and giving both Josh and Jimmy a run for their money.

Each episode of “Game Knights” where they play against each other can range from 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. I don’t have the attention span to watch an episode in one sitting, so I watch 10 – 15 minutes of each episode whenever I have free time. I have the Game Knights playlist in one of my internet tabs, so I can return to it at any time.

Discovering The Command Zone / Game Knights has inspired me to start deck-building again. I’m building a red/green big creatures deck with the new cards from the Theros Beyond Death set. I haven’t built a deck in at least 3-4 years, so it’s exciting to be inspired to return to crafting my deck. This inspiration has come from the Command Zone and I’m thankful for discovering their gaming space.

I have had a love/hate relationship with Magic the Gathering for a while and watching The Command Zone has invigorated my love for the game. It’s not often where I become this invested in gathering cards from my collection. If you’re a Magic the Gathering player, this is a Youtube channel you need to subscribe to. They do have a Command Zone podcast if you prefer podcasts over Youtube channels. The Command Zone can be found on Youtube or through their podcast available on Stitcher or Apple Podcasts.
