Quote from Arkhaic »Potential Suggestions:
1. Have everyone build a deck with an interesting shared theme for themed episodes:
|-Bears (2 CMC 2/2s): e.g. Emmara/Hapatra/Karlov/Lavinia
|-Gods (Theros, Ahmonket)
|-Elder Dragons (Old or New)
|-Ravnica Guild Leaders
|-Legendaries from a new set
2. Random deck assignment (or of commanders to build around), playing someone elses deck mixes things up a lot.
3. Utilise variants to mix things up:
|-Emperor or similar
I would avoid chaos cards for a livestream tbh, otherwise you may have long stretches of just debating rules or the complex state of the stack. My two cents.
