Legendary characters are highlighted in MTG Dominaria United Commander precon face cards ...

The main booster set featuring two classic Magic characters will come out in two preconstructed Commander decks.

The two face cards for the Cominaria United precons are Jared Carthalion and Dihada, Binder of Wills. Jared Carthalion is the general for the Painbow deck, while Dihada leads the deck Legends; Legacy. This Commander release is smaller than the five precons from Streets of New Capenna.

Dominaria United will be released on Sept. 1 in Magic Arena and Magic Online, followed by a global tabletop release on Sept. 9. The complete Dominaria United Commander decklist will be revealed on Aug. 19.

Dihada, Binder of Wills

  • Mana value: 1RWB
  • Type: Legendary Planeswalker Dihada
  • Rarity: Mythic Rare
  • Starting loyalty: Five
  • First ability: +2: Up to one target legendary Creature gains vigilance, lifelink, and indestructible until your next turn.
  • Second ability: -3: Reveal the top four cards in your library. Put any number of legendary cards from among them into your hand and the rest into your graveyard. Create a treasure token for each card put into your graveyard this way.
  • Third ability: -11: Gain control of all nonland permanents until the end of turn. Untap them. They gain haste until the end of the turn.
  • Dihada, Binder of Wills can be your commander.

Dihada is a Mardu legendary-matters card that wants to engage in battle and find value out of the graveyard. The +1 is an excellent strategy to eliminate undesirable blocks in combat, giving a strong creature three important keywords: vigilance, lifelink, and indestructible.

The -3 is a solid card selection tool that gets better if you are able to play cards from the graveyard the way a Kethis or Hidden Hand deck is run. This ability will usually draw you two or three cards from a dedicated legendary-matters list. If you are struggling with mana, the treasure generation is a temporary ramp.

The Ultimate is unlikely to be reached. The -3 is strong enough to keep playing it frequently. If you are able to achieve 11 loyalty, the ultimate should just win the game. This is where something like The Chain Veil can help.

Jared Carthalion

  • Mana value: WUBRG
  • Type: Legendary Planeswalker Jared
  • Rarity: Mythic Rare
  • Starting loyalty: Five
  • First ability: +1: Create a 3/3 Kavu Creature token with trample thats all colors.
  • Second ability: -3: Choose up to two target Creatures. For each of them, put a number of +1/+1 counters on it equal to the number of colors it is.
  • Third ability: -6: Return target multicolored card from your graveyard to your hand. If that card was all colors, draw a card and create two treasure tokens.
  • Jared Carthalion can be your commander.

Jared isnt the best five-color good card commander, but wants to lead a team of multicolored creature cards with five +1/+1 counters. That's not bad.

Jared can be the commander of a deck that has the best three, four, and five color creatures in Magic. Each of the Streets of New Capenna crime bosses would work well in a Jared Carthalion deck. There are 23 creature cards legal in Commander that are WURBG Enchantment cards.

There may be a group slug component to a successful deck built around Jared that players are unaware of. Once full decklists are revealed, Jareds true strength will be revealed.
