Commander Legends is the first-ever Magic: The Gathering Commander set that is designed to be drafted. It is the Innovation product for 2020, and will be released in the last months of 2020.[1][2]

Set details[edit | edit source]

Commander Legends is larger than a normal set, with both oft-asked-for Commander reprints and new cards. There are over 70 brand-new legends, and some of them are planeswalkers. The set features many known planes and characters as well as new ones. These cards can be from anywhere in space and time in the Multiverse and are legal in Eternal formats like Legacy, Vintage, and Commander.

Marketing[edit | edit source]

Commander Legends is sold in 20-card booster packs, with a foil and two legendary creatures in every single pack. The set will be available in English, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Preconstructed decks[edit | edit source]

Commander Legends also features two preconstructed Commander decks that are released as a regular part of a set's product line.[1] These are meant to be on-ramps to Commander, with a few new cards (three per deck) and the rest reprints. The new cards can't be found in Draft Boosters. The expansion code for these is CMC.
