The newest D&D/MTG crossover set is coming soon. Commander Legends: Battle For Baldur’s Gate is set for release this June. It’s combining the best of Magic’s Commander style of play with everything to love about playing D&D.
One of the major things about this set is an Alchemy version is coming to Magic: The Gathering Arena.
Titled Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate, this is going to have the Alchemy and Historic cards to use. Included will be Set Mastery, Draft gameplay modes, and so much more. This is getting released in July and more news will be released closer to the launch.
The designs for the packaging have been revealed. The packaging has a really fun D&D/Magic look to them that fans and players of the game will appreciate:
There are going to be many familiar ways to play with these cards including:
- Draft, Set, and Collector Boosters
- Prerelease Pack, containing three Draft Boosters, a year-stamped foil rare or mythic rare, a dungeon card, and also an MTG Arena code card
Alongside that, the Draft Boosters will include 20 cards- including one that will be a Traditional Foil. And there are 4 different Commander decks that will be available:
- Party Time (white-black)
- Mind Flayarrrs (blue-black)
- Draconic Dissent (blue-red)
- Exit from Exile (red-green)
Included with the Commander Decks, there will be 100 ready-to-play cards in it. Included as well are going to be 10 new-to-Magic cards and a Collector Booster Sample Pack, like what the Streets Of New Capenna Commander Decks will have.
