Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate is Magic: The Gathering's second Commander set created by Wizards of the Coast. Baldur's Gate follows in the footsteps of the original Commander Legends set released in November 2020. Some design features in the original Commander Legends trickled into Baldur's Gate, such as the total card count of 361, a partner-like ability, desirable reprints, 20-card Draft Boosters, and multiple Limited archetypes. There are a few differences with Baldur's Gate, including a Dungeons & Dragons theme, the initiative and background mechanics, and a focus on Dragons.
A premier set released with new cards will likely have synergies with older MTG cards. Dragon synergies abound in Baldur's Gate thanks to inclusions like Wrathful Red Dragon, Earthquake Dragon, and Lapis Orb of Dragonkind. Dragons are not the only synergistic cards in Baldur's Gate as other new cards led to a handful of older cards spiking in price.
In my article, Which Cards Spiked in Price Because of Baldur's Gate, exclusively available at TCGplayer Infinite, I cover some notable price spikes caused by Baldur's Gate card inclusions. Read the article to find out why players bought copies of Worst Fears, Citanul Hierophants, and other MTG cards from past sets.
