Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms includes 26 out of the 90 playable cards in Magic: The Gathering that produce or reference Treasure tokens. As such, Commander decks interested in creating Treasure or artifact tokens have new resources at their disposal.
My latest article, 5 Commander Cards Improved by Forgotten Realms, highlights five Commander cards receiving a booster in power and synergy from Forgotten Realms Treasure-related cards. One example is Revel in Riches, a black enchantment from Ixalan. Revel in Riches is an enchantment that wants you to amass ten or more treasures to win the game. Since Forgotten Realms contains multiple new black Treasure-producing creatures and spells, players may want to include Revel in Riches in more Commander decks. To find out what the other four powered up cards are, give the article a read!
