Post-nuclear, retro-futuristic adventures await as Magic: The Gathering and Fallout come together in a legendary collaboration of two iconic universes in Magic: The Gathering® – Fallout®.Four new Commander Decks featuring key characters, weapons, abilities, and lands from many of the Fallout games will be released on 8 March, 2024. Special card treatments will showcase the Pip-Boy display, well known for its green and black informational display in the video games.The Commander Decks are themed to key elements in Fallout – Survival, Technology, Military, and Mutants. Each deck features a face card of an iconic character that is representative of the theme – Dogmeat, Dr. Madison Li, Caesar, and Mothman.Survival decks will rely on players to scavenge for food, tools, and allies for success. Dogmeat, a German Shepherd companion from many of the Fallout games, will lead your search to victory, and the Junk token mechanic will let players sacrifice it to draw cards.Technology decks call upon high-tech energy weapons, scientists, synthetic beings, and pre-war robots to do your bidding. Artifacts can generate Energy, a returning mechanic fit for the world of Fallout, powering your way to a win. Dr. Madison Li, one of the most prominent scientists in the Fallout universe, is the Commander for this deck.Military decks are championed by the leaders of militant factions and their soldiers as well as Wasteland Raiders. Caesar, a militaristic dictator who wanted to conquer post-war America in Fallout: New Vegas, will command the armies in this deck and make use of a brigade of cloned creatures.Mutant decks will showcase Fallout’s dangerous and strange mutated creatures. The Mothman from Fallout 76 headlines the deck filled with powerful creatures, like Feral Ghouls. Radiation tokens can impact your opponent’s deck or power up your own deck with rad counters.In addition, Saga cards tell the stories of theatom-punk, alternate reality America. There are Pip-Boy framed cards in the main decks and borderless Vault Boy cards in the Fallout art style in Collector Boosters.Basic full art lands will show off the haunting and dangerous environments from the Fallout games.
