This week, Wizards of the Coast is expected to officially reveal the new Magic: The Gathering cards from the upcoming Commander Legends, the first-ever Commander set designed to be drafted, but it looks like several cards have already been leaked online.

In addition to the two brand new Planeswalker Commanders leaked on eBay today, the same source shared images of the new legendary creatures from Commander Legends, and thanks to Redditor Schnarf541, we have the translations of the German versions of the cards.

With many of the legendary cards having Partner ability in Commander Legends, I expect that most of the draft games will involve decks that have two Commanders, and it should be exciting to see how it will create a unique experience for players. Many of the legendary creatures from this set probably won't be viable in a normal Commander match but they will probably be strong enough for Limited play.

Commander Legends will feature 71 legendary creatures and planeswalkers, and the cards will be legal in Eternal formats like Legacy, Vintage, and Commander. The set contains 361 regular cards, and it will introduce "foil-etched" cards, which use a brand-new foiling process that looks different from previous foils and have a special card frame.

Commander Legends product and events will be available on Magic Online on Thursday, November 19, 2020. ​
