Magic: The Gathering Goes Beyond with its Warhammer 40,000 Collaboration

Wizards of the Coast revealed a lot of what’s coming soon for Magic: The Gathering and we’re excited for the collaboration with Games Workshop. Yes, Warhammer 40,000, Age of Sigmar, and Blood Bowl are all coming to Magic: The Gathering!

The two games combined with four 100-card Commander decks and three Secret Lair drops. But, you’ll also be able to use those cards in Commander, Legacy, and Vintage.

As part of Magic: The Gathering’s “Universes Beyond” the four commander decks are:

  • Tyranid Swarm (green-blue-red)
  • Forces of the Imperium (white-blue-black)
  • Necron Dynasties (mono-black)
  • The Ruinous Powers (blue-black-red)

There’s a regular edition and “Collector’s Edition” which comes fully foiled with never-before-seen special surge foil.

The three Secret Lair drops go further into the worlds of Games Workshop:

  • Secret Lair x Warhammer 40,000: Orks
  • Secret Lair x Warhammer Age of Sigmar
  • Secret Lair x Blood Bowl

Previews of the cards begin on July 26 with the Secret Lair Drop running from August 12-22. A worldwide release for the set is August 12 with the Launch Weekend Event taking place August 12-14.

With the announcement, we also got the first previews of cards being released.

Since the commander format is all about legendary creatures and big plays, it should be no surprise that Abaddon, the Despoiler is getting a card. He’s the “face” of “The Ruinous Powers” deck.

Abaddon, the Despoiler

You’ll scream your loyalty to Khorn with Blood for the Blood God! Appropriately the cost to cast the card drops the more things die on the battlefield.
