Four Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Commander Decks were released together with Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms on July 23, 2021. They are meant to be on-ramps to Commander, partially with new cards and the rest reprints.

Description[]

There are 62 new cards (with printed set code AFC and collector numbers) printed in the Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Commander Decks.[3] These cards are legal for play in the Commander, Vintage, and Legacy formats. They aren't legal for play in the Standard, Pioneer, or Modern formats. The other cards in these decks (with printed set code AFC and collector numbers #63–331) are legal for play in any format that already allows those cards; that is, appearing in these decks doesn't change a card's legality in any format. Cards from the main set retain their own symbol and code.

Like with Ikoria Commander, the new cards are themed to the world and the reprints can be from anywhere.

Contents[]

Each package contains:

Cycles[]

The Commander decks for Adventures in the Forgotten Realms feature two cycles.

Cycle name {W} {U} {B} {R} {G}
Endeavors Valiant Endeavor (d6) Arcane Endeavor (d8) Grave Endeavor (d10) Reckless Endeavor (d12) Wild Endeavor (d4)
Five rare, high mana value sorceries which roll two dice of the same type. Each one uses a different die.
Skill Checks Revivify Diviner's Portent Danse Macabre Berserker's Frenzy Song of Inspiration
Five rare instant and sorcery spells which roll a d20 and have one of two effects occur depending on the result. One occurs if the result is between 1 and 14, and a stronger effect occurs if the result is 15 or greater. Thematically, these represent ability checks with a difficulty class of 15. Berserker's Frenzy rolls two d20 and ignores the lowest result (representing an ability check made with advantage), while the others add a value to the number rolled on the die before determining which effect occurs (the added value representing an ability modifier).
