Friend Forever! is a slogan often used in the Stranger Things science fiction horror Netflix series that the cards with this keyword are modelled on.
- Friends Forever
- A variant of the partner ability that lets two legendary creatures be your commander in the Commander variant rather than one if both have the friends forever ability. See rule 702.124, “Partner,” and rule 903, “Commander.”
- 702.124g Friends forever is a variant of the partner ability. Friends forever modifies the rules for deck construction in the Commander variant, and it functions before the game begins. Rather than a single legendary creature card, you may designate two legendary creature cards as your commander if each has friends forever.
A player can have two commanders if both have friends forever. Because both commanders start the game in the command zone, the remaining library is only 98 cards. Your two commanders are treated individually for all other Commander rules. If either leaves the battlefield, you can return it to the command zone instead. The "commander tax", the additional cost of 2 for every time you've cast a commander from the command zone, applies individually. Combat damage dealt by each commander is similarly tracked individually. If either commander can deal 21 or more combat damage to a single player over the course of the game, that player loses.
If any card refers to your commander (or commanders in general), it means either one of the two.
Partner and Friends forever are not compatible.
