Wizards of the Coast has revealed the five legendary professors for Strixhaven: School of Mages, and they will all be featured in the Commander 2021 decks. Each of them represents one of the five colleges of Strixhaven University, the most elite university in Magic: The Gathering’s Multiverse, which is located in the plane of Arcavios. Each college of Strixhaven is represented by two mana colors that are at odds at one another: Quadrix (blue/green), Witherbloom (green/black), Silverquill (black/white), Prismari (blue/red), and Lorehold (red/white). Soon, fans can purchase Commander decks that represent these schools.
Last week, Senior Magic Designer Gavin Verhey gave us our first look at the artworks of the five Strixhaven Commander professors, and now you can check out what their cards do.
