Since 1997, players have journeyed to unforgettable post-nuclear, dystopian wastelands, brought to life in the Fallout® games.

Now Magic: The Gathering® celebrates the series’ incredible legacy with four new Commander decks, showcasing the very best of Fallout, NS paying tribute to the unique characters and items from the games. And yes, that includes our goodest boy Dogmeat!

“This exciting collaboration with Bethesda brings one of the biggest video game franchises to the Magic multiverse for a one-of-a-kind experience in the Fallout world,” said Ken Troop, Vice President of the Magic: The Gathering franchise. “We’ve always pushed the boundaries of what makes the Universes Beyond sets extra special, but this partnership takes it to a whole new level. Our team has been working tirelessly to ensure that every card and every play experience brings the essence of this unforgettable video game world to life.”

“I’m a huge fan of Magic and have been playing since 1994. Bringing Fallout to Magic: The Gathering is an excellent fit. Fallout’s action, adventure and narrative aligns perfectly with Magic’s strategic and competitive gameplay,” said Mike Kochis, Vice President of Global Sales and Development for Bethesda Softworks. “As a fan of both Magic and Fallout, it’s exciting to see 25 years of the Wasteland reinterpreted through this legendary card game.”

Each Commander deck features new cards that will be legal in Legacy, Vintage, and Commander. These decks are ready to experience Commander straight out of the box, letting players compete against each other and utilise social intrigue and strategic plays, elements that are perfectly fitting for this classic roleplaying series.

There are four Commander decks, each based around a different theme. Scrappy Survivors features everyone’s favourite pup Dogmeat as the commander, and requires players to focus on scavenging for tools, food tokens, and allies. The deck also introduces junk tokens, which can be sacrificed to draw cards.

Mutant Menace is for players looking for something a little “different”, with brave souls managing a host of strange mutated creatures. Led by The Wise Mothman, a firm believer in weaponising radiation, players using this deck will irradiate both themselves and their startled opponents by using new rad counters.

For something less radioactive, but equally as deadly, the Hail, Caesar deck features the franchise’s infamous Caesar as the commander. This deck’s theme revolves around leaders of militant factions and their soldiers, as well as wasteland Raiders. Aggression and strategy is the key to victory with an army of creature tokens and a special squad mechanic, which lets players create extra token copies of creatures.

Finally there is the Science! deck, embracing Fallout’s impressive retro-futuristic technology. Here players will wield high-tech energy weapons, Synths, and pre-war robots. With the illustrious Dr. Madison Li as the commander, players will utilise artifacts to generate energy.

Alongside the four Commander decks, Collector Booster packs are also available. Players will encounter borderless Vault Boy cards, showcase Pip-Boy frames and exclusively to these boosters, serialised Vault Boy bobblehead cards. Seven special cards in this set feature serialisation, available on only 500 copies each.

These new decks represent the first “modern view” of some of the classic Fallout games, including updates to characters and settings from Fallout and Fallout 2, providing something extra S.P.E.C.I.A.L. for fans. This is a true celebration of one of the longest running and most beloved computer role playing games in history.

Magic: The Gathering® – Fallout®  is available now from online retailers like Amazonyour local game store, and wherever Magic products are sold. For more details, visit DailyMTG.
