The Commander series is a line of products conceived for the Commander format. From 2013 on, a Commander product was released every year, each containing five 100-card decks. This product is generally targeted at non-tournament play. While the audience is obviously Commander players, they are also interesting for other formats like free-for-all multiplayer or Cube Draft.
New cards[edit | edit source]
On average, Commander sets feature 50-60 all-new cards. The new commons are available in all decks, uncommons are available in all decks of the card's color, rares are available in one deck only, and mythic rares are the new Commanders themselves.
