‘Magic: The Gathering’ Goes Nuclear With New ‘Fallout’ Collection

Following the likes of Lord of the Rings and Doctor Who, the next big IP to join in the fun of Magic: The Gathering under the Universes Beyond umbrella will be Bethesda‘s popular Fallout series. First revealed back in August, fans can look forward to four new Commander decks that will see familiar characters, creatures, and abilities make the leap from video games to the trading card realm on 8 March 2024.

“We hope to pay homage to Fallout‘s high-energy, high-action, post-nuclear RPG roots. Whether you join the side of some of Fallout‘s most infamous characters or choose to play as a Vault survivor fighting gangs of raiders, super-mutants, irradiated monsters, and pre-war robots, life in the wastes won’t be easy,” said Wizards of the Coast in a blog post.

The four Commander Decks include:

Scrappy Survivors (Red-Green-White)

Featuring the goodest of boys, Dogmeat, as your commander, this deck focuses on scavenging for tools, Food tokens, and allies. It also introduces Junk tokens, which can be sacrificed to draw cards. If you enjoy tokens and suiting up your creatures with Auras and Equipment, then this is the deck for you.

Mutant Menace (Black-Green-Blue)

The Mutant Menace deck for Magic: The Gathering incorporates dangerous and strange mutated creatures, such as this deck’s commander, The Wise Mothman from Fallout. Play creatures, then buff them with counters and proliferate. Irradiate yourself and your opponents using the new rad counters (player counters that mill and damage you).

Hail, Caesar (Red-White-Black)

Featuring the franchise’s infamous Caesar as your commander, this deck’s themes revolve around leaders of militant factions and their soldiers, as well as wasteland raiders. Be aggressive with an army of creature tokens with the help of the squad mechanic, which lets you create extra token copies of creatures.

Science! (Blue-White-Red)

Finally, The Science! deck focuses on high-tech energy weapons, scientists, synths, and pre-war robots. With Dr. Madison Li as your commander, you will play artifacts to generate energy, a returning mechanic fit for Fallout.

Obviously, all of these new Magic: The Gathering cards will feature Fallout art, and judging from recent releases, these are going to look great for any collection. There are also the Collector Boosters set up for grabs, with the Pip-Boy treatment being the first of many to come.

Be sure to grab yours whenever you can, with pre-orders already opened for eager Wastelanders to stake their claim in this bold new world.
