Wizards of the Coast has launched Magic: The Gathering – Doctor Who, a brand new set released in time for the celebration of the iconic series’ 60th anniversary.
The Doctors, their companions, their foes and more all arrive in Magic: The Gathering in the form of four Commander decks. These all feature new-to-Magic cards, as well as reprints with new Doctor Who™–themed art, allowing collectors to immerse their decks in the world of the Doctor.
Each Commander deck will feature new cards that will be legal in Legacy, Vintage, and Commander. These cards are designed for Commander, accentuating the fun and social aspect of the format that players love.
The four decks feature Doctors grouped together from the show’s history. Blast From the Past features the first eight Doctors. Timey-Wimey highlight the Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Doctors. Paradox Power showcases the Twelfth and Thirteenth Doctors.
And let’s not forget the villains! The Masters of Evil Commander deck contains many of the Doctor’s arch-nemeses throughout the show’s 60 years.
Each deck contains companions familiar to each Doctor and can be used in the Command Zone with any Doctor. Mechanics of the cards are also reflective of the show’s time period in the decks. Saga cards highlight fan-favourite shows from each Doctor’s run.
The Doctor has travelled across the universe on their many adventures, and so will you with the plane cards included in each Commander deck. These cards represent the iconic locales of Doctor Who™, with each deck containing 10 new-to-Magic plane cards, so that you can travel throughout time and space as chaos ensues.
You’ll also be able to collect special TARDIS showcase versions of several cards in this set. Only available in Collector Boosters, these versions give new artwork to cards from the Commander decks, focusing on flashy styles and breathtaking artistry.
You also may encounter special serialised Doctor cards in Collector Boosters. Extremely rare and extremely stylish, these printings of the Doctor are marked with their own serial number. Each card will receive only around 500 printings and can only be found in Collector Boosters.
The Daleks and the Weeping Angels have invaded the Secret Lair Spookydrop. Dalek land cards put the Doctors’ mechanical menace within (and sometimes looming over) the five mana landscapes. The Weeping Angel Secret Lair cards add an element of surprise and danger to any deck. Both drops are available now at the Secret Lair website.
