Commander in Pittsburgh?
Posted on April 30, 2017, 5:05 p.m. by Podma101
So for the summer, I'm moving to Pittsburgh with my GF for a summer internship. This puts me way out of range of home and my playgroup for EDH. I wanted to see if anyone knew ANYTHING about a commander scene in the city of Pittsburgh or nearby, casual or competitive. To be precise I'll be in North Oakland
Well, I'm not from Pittsburgh, but I did find a shop very close to North Oakland you might want to check out. Here's their address:
and here's their website
406 S Craig St #2, Pittsburgh, PA 15213
It doesn't look like they openly advertise any Commander stuff, but if you're looking for a new playgroup, this might be a good place to start.

Hey bud, I'm about a 20 min drive north of Pittsburgh. I played a lot in college (I was farther up north for college) but for now I work alot so I dont have time to go to all the different shops but these are ones I know of around the area
Mr Nice Guy Games in Monroeville http://www.mrniceguygames.com/ They have almost every card but I dont know of their schedule with commander but im would imagine they have one. I mean I think it has a regular vintage non-proxy scene from what I have heard though. They used to have a store closer to me but I have not been to the new one.
With the one posted by Jericho I have never been there, they do have another location in Greentree.
Legions Hobbies and games http://www.legionsgames.com/ looks like they do commander on Sunday
Steel city collectables in Ross Park mall - never been there
New Dimension comics http://ndcomics.com/ They have three locations West mifflin, Pittsburgh mills, Cranberry (in order of closest to farthest for you) I go to the one at the pittsburgh mills often their commander is Wednesday and every once in a while they might have stuff on the weekends.
CMU (carnegie mellon university) had a bumping magic scene even in the 90's im sure you could find people to play with around there
If you are ever a little up north (for whatever reason) let me know and we can play a couple games haha
