Commander adds four-color Commanders to Magic. The set will feature five four-color, 100-card Commander decks, along with 56 new Magic cards legal in Eternal formats (Vintage and Legacy) but not legal in Standard, Block Constructed, or Modern.
Commander decks introduce an ability called partner that lets you designate two legendary creatures as commanders instead of one. Both commanders need to have the partner ability listed on their card. This new ability appears on characters from the past and future of Magic lore, allowing you to form unlikely but powerful pairs.
The Commander format is all about picking your hero and building a deck around them. In this casual, multiplayer format, you choose a legendary creature to serve as your commander and build the rest of your deck around their color identity.
If you're new to Commander, a pre-built deck can be the best place to start.
