Commander or EDH (Elder Dragon Highlander) consists of five different 100-card singleton decks, each with a suggested retail price of $29.99. Between the five decks there are a total of 51 new Magic the Gathering cards. To continue the tradition of oversized cards associated with multiplayer releases, each deck will also include three premium oversized legendary commander cards that can be used in lieu of the normal versions of the cards (which are also in the deck). Commander cards are real, black-bordered Magic cards that will be legal in Eternal formats (Vintage and Legacy). The Commander decks are in "Wedge" colors. "Wedge" is a term we use for three-color combinations consisting of an allied pair and their shared enemy. Examples of famous "wedge" cards are Lightning Angel() and Doran, the siege Tower (). These combinations have been woefully short-supplied on legendary creatures, so each deck contains the corresponding Planar Chaos Dragon (such as Intet, the Dreamer) as well as two new legendary commanders in those colors, plus oversized foil versions of all three. The full set will not fit in the medium flat rate box.
This set is notable in that it is the first set printed outside of the normal booster pack expansions to have functionally new cards. There are 51 new cards, made specifically for multi-player games, featured in Commander. Initially known as "EDH", Commander is a format where players construct 100-card decks, with each card except basic lands appearing no more than once. Players also choose a legendary creature to be their "Commander" (also known as a "General"), which begins the game in the "Command Zone". Each player's deck is based and built around their Commander's colors. In addition to the same losing conditions that exist in a normal game of Magic, a player may lose if he or she is dealt 21 total points of combat damage from a single Commander throughout the game.Commander also has its own "banned list" of cards, separate from any other format.
