Learn from Legendary commanders.

A total of five professors at Strixhaven University were revealed by Wizards of the Coast today for the Commander 2021 set, which is scheduled to release in April. 

Strixhaven University is located on the plane of Arcavios, showcasing its five colleges within the upcoming Standard-legal set Strixhaven: School of Mages (STX) and Commander 2021 (C21) set. The five colleges are represented by two mana colors that are at odds with one another. Professors at each of Strixhaven’s colleges are also the C21 Legendary face cards for the five preconstructed decks. 

From an esteemed magical orchestra maestro to Dryad Druid who prefers the hermit life, here are the five Strixhaven professors and C21 face cards.
