Forgotten Realms Commander Decks & Decklists

Magic the Gathering is releasing its first Dungeons and Dragons themed set. But DND fans are not the only ones that should be excited – so should Commander players. Why? Because four Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Commander decks will also be released alongside the main set.

In this article we’ll discuss everything we know about the Forgotten Realms Commander decks so far, including possible themes, decklists and more.

Forgotten Realms Commander Decks

As we said, there will be four Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Commander decks. We already know their names: (you can click on them to check them on Amazon)

Intro or Full Versions?

The first question you might have is – are Forgotten Realms Commander decks intro Commander decks, or the full versions?

Lately WotC released intro (or lite) Commander decks with Kaldheim, Zendikar Rising and Commander Legends. These decks weren’t fully powered like some of the previous precons. Instead, you got a deck that had fewer powerful cards, but its price was also lower. If you want an example, you can find Kaldheim Commander decks here.

On the other hand, Wizards also regularly release fully powered Commander decks. The latest example would be Strixhaven Commander decks (also called Commander 2021 decks). These deck are more powerful, contain stronger reprints, and have the standard price for Commander precons.

With that said – Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Commander decks are fully powered. This is the first time that decks outside the line of Commander yearly series got this treatment. So you can expect powerful decks with plenty of new cards and with exciting reprints.

Release Date

Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Commander decks release on July 23, 2021. That’s the same date as the main set releases in paper.

Forgotten Realms Commander Decklists

All four decklists have been previewed. You can find them below each deck.

Aura of Courage

Forgotten Realms Commander Decklist Aura of Courage
Galea Kindler of Hope Commander Forgotten Realms Decklists

Aura of Courage has Aura and Equipment synergies. Galea looks like a Voltron type of commander, who likes to wear multiple Auras.

For newer players – Voltron commanders are commanders that have some kind of protection, or they reward you for equipping / enchanting them. Usually a Voltron commander is the single biggest creature on the battlefield.

Draconic Rage

Forgotten Realms Commander Decks Draconic Rage
Vrondiss Rage of Ancients DND Commander Decks Decklists Precons

The name suggested a Dragon themed deck – maybe even a tribal one. There was a deck called Draconic Domination with The Ur-Dragon back in Commander 2017, and it was a pretty popular one.

Although we hoped that the deck might contain five colors, (as the main set contains Tiamat), the deck will only have red and green.


So if you want to build around Tiamat, you’ll have to build the deck yourself. However, the deck still enables you to build around Dragon tribal if you choose so – at least judging by Vrondiss.

  1. Good insight. I love how you have a section for new players to describe different lingo regular magic players are use to. Really hope you are right about the dragon deck. The Draconic Dominarion deck is bonkers in price and I really want a 5 color dragon deck!
