As part of an ongoing series of weekly changes, Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has announced the updates and changes for Week 2 of Dominaria United on Magic Online.

Dominaria United Commander Decks On Sale

Beginning Thursday, September 8 at 10 AM PT, Commander players can get the Painbow and Legends’ Legacy preconstructed decks for $29.99 plus tax.

Treasure Chest Updates

A new category in Treasure Chests will show up every one in four chests — the TC only category. These slots will include cards not found in booster packs. More cards are being injected into the Treasure Chests to help players get the cards they need. This includes all the initiative cards as well as some of the background cards from Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate. This means Legacy players will be able to find Minsc & Boo, Timeless Heroes, Maddening Hex, and more.
