There are many new, exciting commanders and mechanics in the upcoming Commander Legends set. But Battle for Baldur’s Gate includes a few older cards too, some of which, desperately needed reprints. Reprints make expensive cards more available and accessible at lower prices. Of the Baldur’s Gate reprints so far, two really stand out.

Blade of Selves

Blade of Selves | Wizards of the Coast

Before Battle for Baldur’s Gate, Blade of Selves was almost $30.00. With its new printing, that price will come down substantially. This is great news for a variety of Commander decks.

Myriad is an extremely powerful ability in Commander, but until now, very few cards featured the mechanic. It debuted in Commander 2015 and did not return. But myriad is back in Baldur’s Gate in full force!

You might be asking why is myriad so good. Well, when you attack with a myriad creature, the copies you make of that creature will trigger any ETB (enters the battlefield) abilities. Imagine getting extra triggers of Sun Titan.

Plus, because the tokens of myriad creatures enter the battlefield attacking, you can make the most of creature abilities that trigger when they deal combat damage, like Balefire Dragon.

Blade of Selves is particularly good because it gives myriad to creatures that typically don’t have it. It makes for a great inclusion in equipment-themed decks like Akiri, Fearless Voyager, and Chishiro, the Shattered Blade. But perhaps the best synergy is with Isshin, Two-Heavens as One, who can double myriad triggers to make even more tokens.

Kindred Discovery

Leading up to Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate, Kindred Discovery was about $25.00.

This is an amazing inclusion in any tribal deck playing blue. Merfolk, Wizards, Zombies, Pirates, Spirits, and many more Commander decks benefit from Kindred Discovery’s insane amount of card draw.
