Each year Wizards of the Coast release an innovation MTG product. It does something that no other product has done before. Innovation product for 2020 is Commander Legends, set that combines Commander with Draft.
In this article we’ll discuss all available information about this set, including Commander Legends spoilers, leaks, teasers and more. Let’s get to it!
Commander Legends Spoilers
Don’t forget to tell us which cards are your favorite in the comments below.
Commander Legends Products
Commander Legends is bringing three different products:
- Draft Boosters
- Collector Boosters
- Commander Decks
Commander Legends Draft Boosters
The Commander Legends booster box contains 24 Packs of 20-card boosters, so you’re getting 480 cards total. You can already preorder the box on Amazon.
Commander Legends Booster Pack Contents
Each Commander Legends Booster contains 20 cards, including:
- 1 non-legendary rare or mythic
- 2 legendary creatures (2U / U+R / U+M / 2R / R+M)
- 1 foil (of any rarity)
- 3 uncommons
- 13 commons
So you’ll get at least one rare or mythic rare card, but you can even get four if you’re very lucky.
Commander Legends Collector Booster
Commander Legends also come with Collector Boosters. Commander Legends Collector Booster Box contains 12 Boosters.
Commander Legends Booster Pack Contents
Each Commander Legends booster contains 15 cards, including:
- 4-6 rares or mythics
- 1-6 uncommons
- 5-8 commons
Each pack contains 5 commanders. You can find more details about Commander Legends Collector Booster contents here.
Commander Legends Decks
Finally, we have to mention that we’re also getting two Commander decks as well. They won’t be your usual decks (like Commander decks from Ikoria), but something more like Zendikar Rising Decks.
So just three new cards per deck (six total), with some exciting reprints, but still beginner friendly.

More Commander Legends Information
Magus Cycle Completion
Magus cycle features creatures, which reference other cards – both by name and their casting costs. There are currently four Magi, but the green one is missing, as you can see from this table.
|White||Magus of the Balance||Balance|
|Blue||Magus of the Mind||Mind's Desire|
|Black||Magus of the Will||Yawgmoth's Will|
|Red||Magus of the Wheel||Wheel of Fortune|
|Green||Magus of the ?||?|
Gavin Verhey, Senior Magic Designer and Writer at Wizards of the Coast confirmed that this cycle will be completed in Commander Legends. So which card do you think the green Magus will reference?
Fetch Lands – Not Included
Many players are wondering when the reprint of fetch lands will finally happen. When Wizards announced fetches in Secret Lair, they also said:
Speaking of old favorites, this isn’t the last time you’ll see fetch lands this year, either. While they will not be entering Standard in 2020 (let’s put that rumor to rest right now—having these in abundance still isn’t a play pattern we want in Standard), there will be another way to pick up some stylized versions of fetch lands later this year that will also be in your local game store.– Blake Rasmussen, Wizards of the Coast employee
So they won’t be entering Standard in 2020, which means we won’t get them in Zendikar Rising. There aren’t that many MTG products until the end of the year, so one of the guesses was they might appear in Commander Legends.
However, we recently found out that the only dual land cycle in Commander Legends is going to be the completion of Battlebond lands. So no fetch lands here.
So we might see them in the other option – Zendikar Rising Collector Booster (check price on Amazon). In that case Wizards would have to state that those fetches aren’t Standard legal.
