Is Infect Too Strong Now? | Bonus Episode

Show Notes: Poison counters are back in Phyrexia: All Will Be One and with them returns the age-old Commander question: Is infect too strong? Sure, 10 is a lot less than 40, but is it actually easier to pull off? This episode, our poison expert Craig “Mr. Infect” Blanchette joins the table to discuss the power of poison in EDH. Does the new “Toxic” ability affect whether the poison counter rule should be raised to 15 or even 20? Tune in and find out. -------- Support the show and become a Patron!
