Quickview Card & Dice Games, Magic The GatheringSteadfast Guardian of the Spirit Realm In life, Ranar was an honoured warrior who refused to abandon his post in the face of helplessness. Recognizing his bravery, the Valkyries named him the guardian of Istfell and tasked him to guard the gates of the spirit realm as a noble, unyielding soul. The ability to cross over the barriers between realms is a deadly advantage in battle, and few know that better than Ranar. As a Spirit guardian and your commander, he’ll send a Spirit to aid your cause every time you exile something. So take advantage of your creatures’ powerful "enters-the-battlefield" abilities by blinking them in and out of existence, or open a tear in the fabric of reality and shove your opponents’ most potent threats through it - either way, Ranar will be there, calling forth yet another Spirit to help you on your way to victory. Commander is a free-for-all multiplayer way to play Magic in which alliances are formed, friends are betrayed, and grudges are repaid with a vengeance. In the end, only one player will be left standing . . . until the next battle begins, of course! Join your friends in a game with this ready-to-play deck.
Quickview Card & Dice Games, Magic The GatheringLegendary Leader & Master Tactician Hailing from a time before the wood and shadow elves were split apart, Lathril represents the glory that the elves hope to return to. Unafraid to wade into the battle personally, she often fought at the head of her forces, dealing death in all directions and rallying her troops to turn even crushing defeat into defiant victory. Some elves believe that her consciousness lingers in one of the Jaspera trees and pray to her faithfully in anticipation of the return of the Einir, the old elven gods who could unite the wood and shadow elves once again. Call on the primordial forests and vast mires of Skemfar—the elvish home realm—as you gather lands and an army of elves to join you on the battlefield. With every hit, Lathril rallies more and more elvish allies to your cause, creating 1/1 Elf Warrior tokens whenever she deals combat damage. With clever tactics and perfect synergy, the power of your army only grows. Give buffs to Elves under your command, bring them back to life, and grant them special abilities. Together you can restore glory to elven kind. Commander is a free-for-all multiplayer way to play Magic in which alliances are formed, friends are betrayed, and grudges are repaid with a vengeance.

Though some may sympathise with the Alliance’s hopes and dreams, these wanderers are old enough to remember the great birds of prey who once controlled the woods. Meanwhile, at the edge of the region, the proud, squabbling Eyrie have found a new commander who they hope will lead their faction to resume their ancient birthright. The stage is set for a contest that will decide the fate of the great woodland. It is up to the players to decide which group will ultimately take root.

In Root, players drive the narrative, and the differences between each role create an unparalleled level of interaction and re-playability.
