From me to all of you, happy holiday season! May you all get mythics in your booster packs, may your Cube packs always have first-pick Sol Rings, and here’s hoping that Wizards sees fit to keep printing excellent and fun Commander cards in the year 2014! Thanks to everyone for reading MTGeezer, and I’ll try my best to keep the hits coming as the new year starts!

The decks were all built. Generals were all chosen. Forces had been marshaled, Wrath effects were readied, and our players were all ready to draw some extra cards.
