The Commander series is a line of preconstructed products conceived for the Commander format.

Description[edit | edit source]

From 2013 on, a Commander product was released every year, each containing four or five 100-card decks.[1] This product is generally targeted at non-tournament play. While the audience is obviously Commander players, they are also interesting for other formats like free-for-all multiplayer or Cube Draft.[2] Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths and Zendikar Rising introduced Commander decks that are released as a regular part of a set's product line.[3]

New cards[edit | edit source]

On average, Commander sets feature 50-60 all-new cards. The new commons are available in all decks, uncommons are available in all decks of the card's color, rares are available in one deck only, and mythic rares are the new commanders themselves.

  • A special Sol Ring Commander promo (foil and non-foil) with new art by Mark Tedin was made available at Grand Prix Las Vegas, just before the release of Commander 2019.[4][5] It will be available in the future through Commander events at MagicFests throughout the year, and at select conventions in 2020.
