Commander Anthology is a compilation set that combines four previously released preconstructed Commander decks in post Magic 2015 card frames. It was released by Wizards of the Coast on June 9, 2017. Commander Anthology was an MSRP of $164.99.[2][3]


The anthology box contains four classic decks from four different commander releases namely Commander, Commander 2013, Commander 2014 and Commander 2015.
