Wizards of the Coast is set to release two new Magic: The Gathering Commander decks with the upcoming Zendikar Rising set. One of them is Land's Wrath, which is Naya-colored (red/green/white), and the other is called Sneak Attack, a Dimir-colored (blue/black) deck. Some of the cards featured in these Commander decks will not be Standard-legal as they are not part of the main Zendikar Rising expansion.

Recently, Wizards of the Coast has revealed the two Commanders as well as a few cards from the new Commander decks. The Naya Commander is called Obuun, Mul Daya Ancestor, and the Dimir Commander is Anowon, the Ruin Thief. Four other cards from the Commander sets have been revealed, giving us a look at the strategies these decks are focused on. Check them out:
