Wizards of the Coast has revealed details on the Magic: The Gathering - Throne of Eldraine: Brawl Decks
, which will street October 6. Brawl is a casual format in which players use Standard-legal cards to create a 60-card Commander deck and battle each other. One sales driver is that each of the Throne of Eldraine
decks comes with an Arcane Signet card and one of four different Commander cards that can only be found in Brawl Decks and in the Throne of Eldraine Collector Booster
(see "WotC Unveils 'Throne of Eldraine' Product Line
"). Each Brawl Deck includes a 60-card singleton deck, one foil legendary creature card, 1 Life Wheel, and 1 strategy insert.
There are four Brawl Decks that will be released with the Throne of Eldraine set:
Wild Bounty contains cards that focus on the Bant colors (Green/White/Blue). The exclusive Commander card is Chulane, Teller of Tales. Chulane's deck is built to synergize with cards that have the Adventure mechanic by employing a recursion and ramp creature strategy.
has cards primarily in the Jund colors (Black/Red/Green). The exclusive Commander card is Korvold, Fae-Cursed King. This deck's strategy revolves around using the new Food mechanic and sacrificing permanents to pull off card combos and draw cards.
is in the Esper colors (Black/White/Blue). The exclusive Commander card is Alela, Artful Provocateur. The theme of the deck revolves around using artifacts and enchantments to win, and has a sub-theme of flying creatures.
is in Mardu colors (Black/White/Red). The exclusve Commander card for this deck is Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale. The deck has a very straightfoward strategy: play Knight creatures, equip them, and attack.
