Come join us for a legendary prerelease event!


Entry is $40 per player. Limit of 8 people per event. All players must register online or in store, no holds.


Prizing will be paid out in store credit and promo packs due to short supply of Commander Legends packs.


Registration ends the day before the event.


All players must wear a mask and will be seated 6ft apart.


Prereleases are events where it's your first chance to try out the new set—and to me, the heart and soul of the Prerelease experience is the energy of getting those cards and playing with them. The Prerelease of a set is great because the set is totally new, the footing is fairly equal as everybody plays with the set for the very first time, and you just get to relax and have fun exploring the new cards. It's a lot of fun for old and new players alike!

If you're a Sealed Deck veteran, you may want to skip ahead to the next section, where I talk about what you can expect for Commander Legends. But if you're new to the world of Sealed Deck, or are maybe just looking for a few extra pointers, read on!

All right. So, let's go over perhaps the most important part: finding product for your Prerelease! After all, you can't very well play if you don't know where to get the supplies you need.



COMMANDING YOUR CARDS


Alright, so you have your packs. What now?

Well, first, you may have received a special Sengir, the Dark Baron Prerelease card. Check it out!


Sengir, the Dark Baron


Because everyone is receiving the same promo, this can't be added into your deck unlike a normal Prerelease card—so you can set it aside for now. But isn't that Pete Venters art just so awesome?!

Sealed Commander Legends uses six packs per player, and Draft uses three per player. (If you're going to draft—please do so safely, of course—remember: you take two cards per pick when you're drafting in Commander Legends!) I'm going to be covering how to build a Sealed deck here, so if you're playing Sealed, crack those open!

So . . . what now?

It's time to build your deck, of course!

Sealed Deck is a little different from normal deck building. You get to build a deck using only the cards in front of you, plus as many basic lands as you'd like.

And Commander Legends is a little different from normal Sealed, which is 40 cards. Here you're building a 60-card Commander deck!

If you don't know what Commander is, that's okay! It's a great time to learn. You can watch my video on this here and learn in under 5 minutes, or go check out the Commander format page for more info.

Keep in mind that the color identity rule for Commander games applies here, so your deck will need to match the colors of your Commander (including any mana symbols on the card, like in an activated ability). You can't put a green card in a deck helmed by Kwain, for example.

The first thing you normally want to do in Sealed is figure out which colors you'll be playing, and so in Commander Legends, a big piece of this will be to see what legends you opened up. They will really influence your decisions! If you opened one (or two, with partner—which we'll get to in a bit) you really liked, that can quickly help you home in on which colors you'll want to play.

Beyond that, some things that may draw you into specific colors are:

  • A really strong rare you're excited about
  • Plenty of "removal" cards that can deal with your opponent's creatures
  • A lot of playable cards in that color
  • A good "mana curve" in that color—meaning lots of creatures of different costs
  • A theme you see in that color that you like
  • A lot of creatures with forms of "evasion," like flying, which are hard to block

Now, if you really want to play a color and don't have the legend of the right color for it, there's a fallback option: The Prismatic Piper! This shouldn't come up often, but you can always use The Prismatic Piper—even if you didn't open one. Think of it as a "basic legend." (And feel free to check out this video for more on why The Prismatic Piper exists.)

It's also worth noting that, like regular Limited, you can play any number of copies of a card you open in your Commander deck. (This is different than regular Commander.)

Now, in Commander Legends, you're going to want to play about 25 lands in your 60-card deck. So, how do you take everything you have and figure out which 35 you're going to want to put in your deck?

Here's one process that may help!

First, lay your creatures out in mana-cost order. This helps you see what creatures you're going to potentially be able to cast at each part of the game. (Don't lay your noncreatures out at this point unless they're cards you are planning to play as soon as you have that much mana—for example, you will generally cast a Slith Ascendant on turn three, whereas Vow of Duty isn't usually a turn-three play.)

A good "mana curve" is crucial to a successful Sealed deck. You don't want to have a ton of cards at any single spot in the curve. It's important for you to have a good mix so you can play your cheap spells in the early game and your expensive spells in the late game.

Additionally, keep in mind that you can always cast your Commander. If Malcolm, Keen-eyed Navigator is one of your Commanders, then that means you always have an available turn-three play.

All that said: in Commander, games go longer, and you have 40 life. So focusing more (but not all!) of your cards toward the end game is worth keeping in mind . . . and moreover, you can probably put your favorite cards that you opened up into your deck and be just fine.
