There’s a new Dungeons & Dragons: Battle for Baldur’s Gate on the way, and it’ll be Wizard of the Coast’s second Magic: The Gathering x D&D crossover event. The first is on right now, also set in the Forgotten Realms, with free adventures and in-store events.
There’s already a Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon Mayhem Battle for Baldur’s Gate Expansion, but this Battle for Baldur’s Gate is different.
The new Dungeons & Dragons: Battle for Baldur’s Gate uses the Commander Legends format for M:TG. That means new mechanics to the core Magic game, draft boosters and (if it’s like previous Commander Legends) foil etched showcase cards.
The format uses three packs per player from which two cards per pick with decks of 60 cards.
Baldur’s Gate is a more familiar name for D&D fans, being a crucial part of many computer games and an important city in the Forgotten Realms.
Dungeon Delving, a term not used by D&D but understood by players, was added to Magic with the first crossover Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. In exchange, a Planes hopping character was introduced as an NPC for the free adventure series.
Wizards of the Coast had plenty of other Magic: The Gathering news this week, such as a Warhammer 40K set and a Lord of the Rings one. The publisher also teamed up with Boom! to do a one-shot comic Magic: Master of Metal which features the planeswalker Tezzeret the Seeker and promises Multiverse ripples.
