23. Commander’s Horn: Five Faction Action

Welcome to Commander’s Horn, Episode 23, Hosted by Dane “McBeard” and Josh “Greyboxer.” Nilfgaard is here! The public has seen many permutations of the build, but the empire is ready to engage the other four factions in a brand new metagame that is already seeing lots of exploration.

We talk all about how each faction is settling in with new cards, changes and archetypes of play. We also talk specifically about Northern Realms, who may finally have a deck that doesn’t rely on an abusive tactic to win.

We are supported by our listeners. Thanks to some very special people, we have reached our January goal. Onward to February! For more information on how you can support the show, find us on Patreon at www.patreon.com/commandershorn
