Finally, we couldn’t explore the multiplayer fun of Dungeons & Dragons without a special nod to multiplayer Magic with four new Commander decks alongside the release of Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. Created to line up alongside Strixhaven‘s Commander decks, these are powerful decks for current Commander players ready to form a party for an unforgettable journey:
- Aura of Courage
- Dungeons of Death
- Draconic Rage
- Planar Portal
There is one more card to show you, though: it’s the Buy-a-Box promotional card for Adventures in the Forgotten Realms is one that will make heads roll for sure.
