Magic: The Gathering’s Baldur’s Gate set brings familiar faces to its most fun format


Crossovers between the two fantasy multiverses owned by Wizards of the Coast have mostly gone in one direction, with Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition receiving books about Magic: The Gathering settings like wizard college Strixhaven, city-planet Ravnica, and Greek mythology blender mishap Theros. Only in 2021 did the streams finally cross the other way—in the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms set, characters, creatures, spells, and places from D&D’s current default world appeared on Magic cards for the first time.

The Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate set is part two. While the city of Baldur’s Gate is its theme and plenty of cards come directly from the videogames named after it, Baldur’s Gate was part of the pen-and-paper RPG first. So, like Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, a lot of cards represent general D&D-isms.
