Adventures in the Forgotten Realms brings powerful new Commanders to your decks–and today, we’re looking at the four new leaders.
Let’s take a look once more at the upcoming cards for Adventures in the Forgotten Realms as we head into the weekend. Today we’re looking at the new Commanders, originally previewed courtesy of Good Morning Magic.
As Gavin Verhey explains, there are four Commander decks in all, and each deck comes with at least two different creatures that can command that deck, and for this set, you have your choice of a hero (each of the four heroes are in an adventuring party) OR a fearsome monster. We’re going to look at the heroes today.
First up, Vrondiss, Rage of Ancients, a Dragonborn Barbarian who is fueled by rage.
Like his D&D counterpart class, when he Rages he gains increased damage and resilience, and he follows the Ancestral Guardian subclass, meaning you can call on Ancestral Spirits for extra defense and guidance in times of need.
Then there’s Prosper, Tome-Bound a Tiefling Warlock that comes from an “eldritch being” that he claims he won in a bet–which might be true.
He uses the Book of Shadows pact feature, so likely has many spells that Warlocks might otherwise not have access to.
Sefris of the Hidden Ways is a Necromancer–a Wizard who trained with the Red Wizards of Thay and uses her magic to sustain life as well as end it, while also controlling the spells her enemies cast.
Green white blue aura of courage? Galea, Kindler of Hope is your Commander. She has sworn the Oath of the Ancients, and uses her own aura to lead her allies into battle, while kindling the light of joy and love in the world.
