We’re not getting only one Innistrad set in 2021. We’re getting two! With the second set, we’re also getting two Crimson Vow Commander decks. In this article, we’ll talk about everything we know about them so far.
It looks like it’s going to be a fun time for fans of tribal Commander decks.
Crimson Vow Commander Decks
As we said, we’re getting two Crimson Vow Commander decks. One deck is called Vampiric Bloodline and the other is Spirit Squadron. While the decklists aren’t available yet, you’ll can already order them on Amazon.
Intro or Full Versions?
As you might know, Wizards released intro (or lite) Commander decks with Kaldheim, Zendikar Rising and Commander Legends. These deck have lower power level and lower price. For an example, you can take a look at Kaldheim Commander decks.
On the other hand, WotC also regularly release fully powered Commander decks. One of the newer ones are Forgotten Realms Commander decks. They have higher power level, contain stronger reprints, and have the standard price for Commander precons.
So, the question is: Will Crimson Vow Commander decks be intro decks or the full versions?
Crimson Vow Commander decks are fully powered. This means you can expect powerful decks with 15 exclusive new cards in each one and with exciting reprints.
Crimson Vow Commander decks release on November 19, 2021. So on the same day as the main set releases in paper.
Crimson Vow Commander Decklists
Crimson Vow Commander decklists weren’t previewed yet. Usually we get them a week or two before the release date. This means you can probably expect decklists in the first half of November.
- Colors: unknown (speculation: Black and White or Red)
- Main Commander: unknown
Looks like we’re getting a Vampire tribal deck – just based on its name. Few years back there was a Commander precon build around Edgar Markov and it was a very popular one. Hopefully, this one will live up to the hype.
The deck will almost surely be Black, as that’s the Vampire’s color. However, as we’ve seen before, we might get a touch of White and/or Red as well.

- Colors: unknown (speculation: White, Blue)
- Main Commander: unknown
The name Spirit Squadron suggests another tribal deck. Of course, centered around Spirits.
The Spirit tribe is most often found in White and Blue. Anything other than these two colors would be a big surprise from this deck.
Note: Most of what we’re talking about here is speculation, based on the decks’ names. While most of this stuff seem very likely, it isn’t confirmed yet. Additionally, you won’t get the black box you saw above – it’s just the placeholder, until the actual packaging gets previewed. Make your purchases with this in mind. This goes for both decks.
Crimson Vow Commander Spoilers
No cards from Crimson Vow Commander decks have been spoiled so far. As we mentioned before, there will be 15 brand-new cards in each deck. This would suggest a total of 30 new ones total. However, there might be some overlap, so we can expect around 27-30.
