Draft Your Party and Build Your Legend in Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate

Magic: The Gathering meets Dungeons & Dragons for the second instalment  of Commander Legends

Wizards of the Coast will be releasing Commander Legends: Battle  for Baldur’s Gate, the latest set for the world’s oldest and best trading card game, Magic:  The Gathering (MTG). Expanding from 2020’s Commander Legends, Battle for Baldur’s  Gate further innovates the Limited format by integrating iconic characters and thrilling  mechanics from the popular role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons (D&D). The set  contains 361 cards and releases for tabletop on 10 June 2022. 

Available only in selected Southeast Asian countries (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand,  Indonesia and Philippines), players will be able to own a customised branded dice case  with every purchase of a collector booster box. Produced in celebration of the set launch,  the dice case are available while stocks last, at participating WPN stores and online (Singapore only).  

Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate

Journey to Baldur’s Gate, the most influential metropolis in the Forgotten Realms. A city state flourishing with commerce, Baldur’s Gate attracts wealth-seeking merchants,  penniless refugees and other characters from all over Faerûn seeking opportunity within its  massive walls. Featuring D&D icons such as Tasha the Witch, Elminster, and fan-favourite  duo Minsc and Boo, Battle for Baldur’s Gate allows players to weave a tale of power and  intrigue as you battle your friends in Magic’s most popular multiplayer format.  

The latest instalment to Commander Legends offers more freedom than ever for players to  build their own legends. A set specifically designed to be drafted, Battle for Baldur’s Gate  breaks the Singleton rule of traditional Commander play by allowing for two or more of the  same card to be included in a deck.  

Elements of roleplay adapted from D&D are also seen in Backgrounds, a new type of  enchantment. Legendary Background cards represent the story that brought your  commander to the point where we find them now. Each one gives your commander a  bonus. Most often, this bonus comes in the form of an ability your commander gains or a  boost to their power and/or toughness.

Veterans of D&D can tell you that initiative is important, and it’s important in Battle for  Baldur’s Gate as well. Initiative, a new keyword ability, enables three significant bonuses:  First, whenever a player takes the initiative, they venture into Undercity (Undercity is a new  dungeon card). Second, the player with the initiative ventures into Undercity again at the  beginning of their upkeep. Third, several cards in the set get better if you have the initiative.  

True to the lore of Baldur’s Gate, the second Commander Legends set sees the return of  Rulebook frames. Every Legendary Creature card receives a frame styled to the look and  feel of the Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual, evoking the classic rulebook aesthetic  cherished by fans of the tabletop game.  

Stunning Borderless frames are also available for certain Mythic Rare Planeswalkers,  artefacts and creatures, including five new Mythic Elder Dragons that each embody a  colour and a powerful ability. 

Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate will be available as Draft Boosters, Set  Boosters and Collector Boosters, as well as Precon Commander Decks, a Prerelease pack,  and a special Commander Legends Bundle containing an oversized D20.
