Commander Anthology Volume II is a compilation set that combines four previously released preconstructed Commander decks. It was released by Wizards of the Coast on June 8, 2018. Commander Anthology Volume II has an MSRP of $164.99.[2][3]


The anthology box contains four classic decks from four different commander releases, including thirteen premium foil commanders. Namely Commander, Commander 2014, Commander 2015 and Commander 2016. All legendary cards have the special card frame that had been introduced with Dominaria. The primary commander of each deck is a premium foil. Notably, this is the first time that these commanders appeared in foil (except for Atraxa, Praetors' Voice)

deck name
Color Identity Commander
{W} {U} {B} {R} {G}
Devour for Power (Commander) U B G The Mimeoplasm
Built from Scratch (Commander 2014) R Daretti, Scrap Savant
Wade into Battle (Commander 2015) W R Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas
Breed Lethality (Commander 2016) W U B G Atraxa, Praetors' Voice

In addition, the set comes with four 100-point spinning life counters and several tokens.[4]


Each deck comes with twenty tokens, Emblem or counter cards, each with the regular Magic card back. Note that the tokens don't line up with the correct decks.[5] It is not simply a matter of swapping one token stack with another. The tokens needed for each deck are in fact packaged with the other three decks.
