How does the event work?

Preparing Your Product

Similar to our previous Harvesttide Festival event, you'll receive one free-of-charge Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate Collector Booster box from your distributor alongside your product order. Please be sure to request this special offering from your distributor directly.

If you don't have enough Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate Draft Boosters on-hand, you will need to order more through your distributor. Additionally, you will have until April 5 to change your preferred distributor to receive the free-of-charge Collector Booster box alongside your order.

Setting Up the Event

For this casual Commander event, you'll receive four 8.5" x 11" dungeon cards to support four tables of Commander players. Dungeon cards are also available for download on the marketing materials page. Place each dungeon card at the center of the table.

As the event begins, you’ll distribute three Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate Draft Boosters and one Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate Collector Booster to each player. They’ll open the Collector Booster first: its contents will be part of their final card pool. Then, they’ll draft the remaining three packs, picking two cards at a time. Once they build 60-card decks, send them to battle in pods of four.

If you want to review more details on how to prepare for drafting this set, feel free to review our previous guide.

Venturing Into the Dungeon

Once players are ready to begin, have each player choose a venture marker of some kind to represent themselves for the duration of the game. Then, when players are directed to venture into the dungeon, they'll begin moving through Baldur's Gate Wilderness, the oversized Dungeon card you'll have on each table.

All players may also venture into this dungeon the first time they cast their Commander during the game.
