Wizards Of The Coast has started previewing some of the upcoming Warhammer 40,000 Magic: The Gathering decks that are releasing later this year in August. Bring the various factions of the grimdark future to the tabletop in card game form.

Four Commander Decks are going to be released in Mid-August featuring artwork from the expansive Warhammer 40,000 world. Each deck is going to be ready-to-play and focuses in on the Commander format which allows for big, powerful characters and creatures and the option to dive into multiplayer games.

Each of the decks focuses on the classic colour combinations present in Magic: The Gathering. The Ruinous Powers deck focuses in on blue, black and red. The Forces Of The Imperium introduces white, blue and black.

The two Xenos decks that will be released initially feature the Necron Dynasties which is a mono-black deck and finally, the Tyranid Swarm which brings the trio of green, blue and red into the mix.

The Collector's Edition sets for these decks come with unique "Universes Beyond" frames but are essentially the same decks. If you're eager to get something a little more special then maybe they could be for you.

I would hope that if these decks do well, they might start to expand the options available to players. The Aeldari and the Orks are conspicuously absent from this initial set of releases and I know a fair few folks who would have wanted to snap those up. It looks like the Space Marines, at least for now, are going to be serviced by the Forces Of The Imperium deck.

There are going to be additional releases alongside these decks. Three Secret Lair releases will be following in their wake looking at the Orks, Warhammer Age Of Sigmar and Blood Bowl. So, Fantasy and Fantasy Football are going to be catered for!

Could you be tempted to give these Commander Decks a shot? I like that they are focused on offering everything in one pack, allowing you to just pick up one of these sets and dive in.

Which set would you pick?
