New to Commander?
You’re welcome to join us! The Commander format, also known as Elder Dragon Highlander (EDH) is a casual Magic format featuring some truly unique deckbuilding options.

In Commander, each player chooses a legendary creature as the commander of their deck. They then play with a 99-card deck that contains only cards of their commander’s colors. Also, other than basic lands, each deck can only use one copy of any card. During the game, you can cast your commander multiple times, meaning your favorite Legendary Creature can come back again and again to lead the charge as you battle for victory!
