Wizards of the Coast released Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate, the latest expansion to the trading card game Magic: The Gathering, on the market today.

Building on what has already been done with the 2020 Legends of Commander set, Battle for Baldur's Gate further renews the Limited format by adding iconic characters and compelling mechanics from the popular RPG Dungeons & Dragons, featuring a total of 361 cards within the entire set.

Baldur's Gate is the most influential metropolis of all the Forgotten Realms, attracting wealth-seeking merchants, penniless refugees and other characters from all over Faerûn seeking opportunities within its massive walls . Featuring iconic D&D characters like Tasha the Witch Queen or fan-favorite duo Minsc and Boo, Battle for Baldur's Gate will allow players to weave a story of power and intrigue as they battle with their friends in Magic's most popular multiplayer format. br>

D&D veterans know how important the Initiative, so much so that even in Battle for Baldur's Gate there will be an ability called just that. This activates three significant bonuses: first of all, every time a player takes the initiative, he ventures into Undercity (a new dungeon card). Later, the Initiative player ventures back into the dungeon at the start of his upkeep. Finally, many cards in the set improve if you have the initiative.

Adventure, on the other hand, will be a type of spell and will divide the card into two parts, allowing you to play the cost of the ability before putting it on the field and exiling it after its use (although it can then be summoned by the exile itself)
