Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC), The Command Zone, MTG Golfdish, MTG Muddstah, and Loading Ready Run, check out the four front-facing legends for the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Commander preconstructed decks!

First up is Galea, Kindler of Hope, the headliner for the Aura of Courage deck.

Galea is a vigilant 4/4 Elf Knight in Bant colors that, as the deck suggests, is all about finding and using auras and equipment.

You may look at the top card of your library any time.

You may cast Aura and Equipment spells from the top of your library. When you cast an Equipment spell this way, it gains “When this Equipment enters the battlefield, attach it to target creature you control.”

Galea encourages you to load up your deck with Equipment and Auras so that you can play as many of them as possible off the top of your deck. Not only do you get to tear through your deck by putting them onto the battlefield, but Equipment get to suit up a creature for free. As long as you have some creatures ready to gear up, Galea will arm them to the teeth.

Next up is Prosper, Tome-Bound from the Planar Portal deck.

Prosper is a four-mana 1/4 Tiefling Warlock with deathtouch in Rakdos colors. Prosper is a card advantage engine with a built-in mana generator that keeps the whole thing going.

Mystic Arcanum — At the beginning of your end step, exile the top card of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play that card.

Pact Boom — Whenever you play a card from exile, create a Treasure token.

The first ability gives you a card each turn that you can cast from exile while the second ability rewards you for casting cards from exile with a Treasure token. Soon enough the Treasures will allow you to play more spells and get more cards to generate more exiling effects with cards like Outpost Siege, Magmatic Channeler, and Harnfel, Horn of Bounty.

Moving on, we have Sefris of the Hidden Ways from the Dungeons of Death deck.

Sefris is a three-mana 2/3 Human Wizard in Esper colors that is going to keep you wanting to venture deeper and deeper into dungeons.

Whenever one or more creature cards put into your graveyard from anywhere, venture into the dungeon. This ability triggers only once each turn.

Create Undead — Whenever you complete a dungeon, return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield.

Sefris looks to be the major “dungeon matters” commander and doesn’t care the cost. In fact, Sefris doesn’t mind when a creature dies seeking fortune and fame. Once a turn you can venture into the dungeon when a creature dies. Don’t worry, your creatures lost in pursuit of loot can return to the battlefield when you complete a dungeon. Esper colors will have the most venture into dungeon cards in Adventures in the Forgotten Realms so you’ll have access to plenty of cards to get you through as many dungeons as possible.

Finally, check out Vrondiss, Rage of Ancients from the Draconic Rage deck.

Vrondiss is a five-mana 5/4 Dragon Barbarian in Gruul colors that harkens back to Ixalan and the enrage mechanic while also wanting a deck full of dice rolling.

Enrage — Whenever Vrondiss, Rage of Ancients is dealt damage, you may create a 5/4 red and green Dragon Spirit creature token with “When this creature deals damage, sacrifice it.”

Whenever you roll one or more dice, you may have Vrondiss deal 1 damage to itself.

Every time Vrondiss takes damage you get to create a 5/4 green Dragon Spirit token, notably without flying similar to Vrondiss himself. The tokens only get to deal damage once but they aren’t legendary so you can generate as many tokens as you can deal damage to Vrondiss. As long as you are looking to roll some dice, Vrondiss is going to be making a bunch of Dragons. You also aren’t restricted to cards that roll d20s as Vrondiss only mentions dice, so if your play group allows Unstable cards you get even more goodies.
