Commander is arguably Magic‘s most popular format, and Wizards of the Coast is producing more Commander products than ever before. In addition to the yearly Commander deck release, Commander fans can now expect two new decks with most major Magic releases, as well as special sets and collectible products designed just for Commander fans.
We’ll be highlighting all the latest Commander products here and updating this page regularly with the latest news.
On April 23rd, Magic will release Commander 2021: five new decks to accompany Strixhaven: School of Mages. Each preconstructed deck corresponds to one of Strixhaven‘s five Colleges — Lorehold, Prismari, Quandrix, Silverquill, and Witherbloom — and features a mix of new cards and reprints.
The contents of all five Commander decks have been fully revealed, and they each include some spicy new additions to the format. Wizards strove to make Strixhaven’s Colleges feel different from Ravnica’s two-color Guilds, resulting in some fresh takes on the color pairs we know and love.

If you like Commander and drafting, then have we got a set for you!
Commander Legends is a Commander-focused set unlike any other. It introduced 71 new legends, as well as countless Commander format staples. If you’re looking for powerful utility cards or a unique legendary creature to inspire your next deck, this is the set for you. And while drafting Commander Legends may be challenging during a pandemic, putting aside a box for later is always a good call.

Kaldheim Commander Decks
Commander decks are quickly replacing Planeswalker Decks in most Magic product lines, and Kaldheim delivered two Commander precons based on the set’s themes. Elven Empire and Phantom Premonition are both playable out of the box, and each deck contains eight never-before-seen cards.
