Everything you need to know about MTG Forgotten Realms Commander decks

Heroes and monsters reign over AFR Commander decks.

A total of four preconstructed Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Commander decks will be released in July, featuring four hero and four monster Legendary cards in each deck. 

These four preconstructed Commander decks will have two Legendary commanders in each. They’re scheduled to be released on July 23 with the global launch of Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms (AFR). The two Legendary commanders in each build are a hero and a monster. Each preconstructed AFR Commander deck contains 100 cards.

Here’s every AFR Commander deck:
