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 we know about these decks including decklists and new cards.
Midnight Hunt Commander Decks
There will be two Midnight Hunt Commander decks. We already know their names and face commanders. One deck is Undead Unleashed and the other is Coven Counters. We’ll go into more details in a bit.
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.
Midnight Hunt Commander decks release on September 17, 2021. That’s the same date as the main set releases in paper.
- Colors: Blue, Black
- Main Commander: Wihelt, the Rotcleaver
Undead Unleashed looks like a Zombie tribal Commander deck, especially if you examine Wilhelt, the main commander.
Undead Unleashed Decklist
You can find out how to upgrade the deck with our Undead Unleashed Upgrade Guide.
We’ve already seen some Midnight Hunt spoilers, and Champion of the Perished looks like a great inclusion in this deck. If this deck will truly be a Zombie tribal one, it looks like you can expect a lot of support for it.
Midnight Hunt Commander Spoilers – Undead Unleashed
You can get these card in the Undead Unleashed Commander deck.
- Colors: White, Green
- Main Commander: Leinore, Autumn Sovereign
The name is pretty straightforward. This deck apparently 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.
Coven Counters Decklist

Midnight Hunt Commander Deck Contents
Before we wrap up, let’s check the contents of each deck, which might be especially useful, if you’re purchasing a Commander precon for the first time.
Each Innistrad Midnight Hunt Commander deck contains:
- 100 Cards, including 2 traditional foil legendary creature cards
- 1 foil-etched display commander
- 10 tokens (with different token on each side)
- 1 life wheel
- 1 deck box with divider (not the sturdiest one, you can find better Commander deck boxes here)
