We’re going back to Innistrad! If you’re a Commander player, you definitely have something to look forward to, as we’re getting two Midnight Hunt Commander decks released alongside the main set.
For newer players – Innistrad is a Gothic Horror themed plane. The home of various monsters such as Vampires, Werewolves, and Zombies. We’ve visited the plane twice before, but this is the first time we’re getting the Commander precons released alongside it.
So in this article we’ll discuss everything you need to know know about these decks including decklists and new cards.
Midnight Hunt Commander Decks
There are two Midnight Hunt Commander decks. One deck is Undead Unleashed and the other is Coven Counters. Let’s go into more details.
Intro or Full Versions?
A with every Commander precon release, the big question is: Will Midnight Hunt Commander decks be intro decks or the full versions?
As you might know, Wizards released intro (or lite) Commander decks with Kaldheim, Zendikar Rising and Commander Legends. These decks aren’t as strong as some previous precons. Instead, the decks have fewer powerful cards, but their price was also lower. If you want an example, you can find Kaldheim Commander decks here.
On the other hand, WotC also regularly release fully powered Commander decks. The latest example would be Forgotten Realms Commander decks. These deck have higher power level, contain stronger reprints, and have the standard price for Commander precons.
With that said – Midnight Hunt Commander decks are fully powered. This means you can expect powerful decks with 15 exclusive new cards in each one and with exciting reprints.
- Colors: Blue, Black
- Main Commander: Wihelt, the Rotcleaver
Undead Unleashed is a Zombie tribal Commander deck. Wilhelt, the Roctcleaver is the main commander, and it’s the perfect one for this strategy.

The name is pretty straightforward. This deck cares about counters and the coven mechanic. That can also be seen from the head commander, Leinore. The green-white color combination, makes perfect sense with some old Innistrad cards like Gavony Township.
