Pittsburtgh Steelers outside linebacker and Cash Cards Unlimited owner Cassius Marsh is back in another Magic: The Gathering Commander video from the I Hate Your Deck YouTube series, and this time, he is playing Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle as his Commander legend. His opponents are award-winning science YouTuber Kyle Hill playing Najeela, the Blade-Blossom, and I Hate Your Deck hosts Joseph H. Johnson, Jr. playing Velomachus, Lorehold, and Michael D. Lynch playing Omnath, Locus of Rage,.
Cassius Marsh & Kyle Hill play Magic: The Gathering with I Hate Your Deck hosts
The video is only 35 minutes long so the match is pretty short for a multiplayer Commander game, but it’s cool to see Kyle Hill and Cassius Marsh play Magic together with the hosts of I Hate Your Deck. Their game is held in Cash Cards Unlimited, Marsh’s card shop in Westlake Village, California, which opened last February.
“I’ve always recognized the value in Magic Cards,” Marsh, who calls himself “Foil King”, told Sports Illustrated. “It was kind of this unseen market. To see what Magic has done, Pokémon cards have done in the last six months, sports cards, to see the explosion of collectables and trading cards, it’s pretty unreal.”
“All of this stuff, it’s art,” Marsh said. “For the new generation, these cards are similar to buying a Picasso. They’re high-end collectibles. High-end art. A lot of these pieces are extremely rare. Some of these sports cards are one of one. It’s like getting a personal piece from a famous artist. It’s just in its infancy right now.”
This is not the first time we’ve seen Marsh play Commander in a YouTube video; he’s been featured in Command Zone’s Game Knights twice.
