Pauper players were greeted with a surprise in today’s Magic Online announcements, receiving two copies of 38 different commons from Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate to compensate for apparent digital supply issues.

Supplemental sets like Commander preconstructed decks or Battle for Baldur’s Gate have a history of issues on Magic Online. Magic‘s premiere digital client for older eternal formats is the main platform for Pauper, a format that uses only Common cards.

Baldur’s Gate added several new cards, including more Gate support, that weren’t immediately available to Pauper players on Magic Online because of supply issues.

Today’s Magic Online announcement showed Wizards of the Coast is working to rectify the issue by granting Pauper players two copies of 38 different Commons to players during the weekly patch on Wednesday morning.

The grant will be applied to players who participated in either a Pauper league anytime in 2022 until Sunday, July 10; or a Pauper premier event anytime from July 1, 2021 through July 10, 2022.
