What We Know about the Forgotten Realms Commander Decks
Earlier last week, Senior Designer Gavin Verhey revealed details on the upcoming Commander release. There will be 64 new cards across the four decks and you have the option to run a different Legendary creature instead of the face Legendary on the box. Each face Legendary will represent a hero within the Dungeons & Dragons universe, with the other Legendary being a monster or villain.
The face Commanders were previewed by LoadingReadyRun, MTG Muddstah, The Command Zone, and MTGGoldfish last week.
