ANNOUNCING COMMANDER (2017 EDITION): FOUR TRIBAL DECKS!
With Magic’s 25th Anniversary celebration upcoming, we’ve wrapped most of our product announcements into June, but one Wily Bandar of a set can’t wait that long—because you’re getting it earlier than normal!
This year, Commander decks return with Commander (2017 Edition) on August 25, 2017*. The set features four new tribal-themed, 100-card decks including 56 all-new Magic cards legal in Vintage and Legacy.
Yes, we are releasing four decks this year instead of the normal five, since this year’s theme isn’t based on the colour wheel but some of Magic’s most popular, and interesting, tribes!
Commander (2017 Edition) decks will be released in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil), and Japanese, and will have an MSRP of $34.99 (only applies to the United States).
Look for more information as we approach August 25!
*Commander (2017 Edition) will release on Magic Online in November 2017.
