Commander Legends is larger than a normal set, with both oft-asked-for Commander reprints and new cards. There are 165 new cards, including 71 legendary creatures and planeswalkers. The cards are legal in Eternal formats like Legacy, Vintage, and Commander. The set contains 361 regular cards (141 commons, 120 uncommons, 77 rares, 22 mythic rares, 1 special) and includes randomly inserted premium versions of all cards. There are no basic lands. The Commander deck cards are numbered #262-267. Cards with alternate card frames have another collector number than the original version. The two borderless planeswalkers are #512 and #TBA, Extended artwork cards are numbered #TBA-TBA, and foil-etched cards are numbered #TBA-TBA. Both regular and foil versions of these cards may be found in the Collector Boosters. The Buy-a-Box is #721 and the prerelease promo is #722.
Commander Legends is sold in 20-card booster packs, with, besides a non-legendary rare or mythic rare, a foil and two legendary creatures in every single pack. A 21st card is a Marketing card. The set is available in English, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. The cards will also be sold in 15-card Collector Boosters. Booster boxes contain 24 booster packs. The Draft Boosters feature Jeska key art; the Collector Boosters feature art from Prossh, Skyraider of Kher.
The set introduces “foil-etched” cards, which use a brand-new foiling process that looks different from previous foils and have a special card frame. 32 popular legendary creatures reprints exclusively appear into this frame. Foil-etched cards appear in both Draft and Collector Boosters.
