Today during Wizards Of The Coast's Weekly MTG livestream, we got our first glimpse at over 40 of the cards that will be available in the Magic: The Gathering Fallout Commander decks when they launch on March 8. 

Below, you'll find every card revealed during today's event, both brand-new cards and reprints of previous MTG cards now fashioned for Fallout. More cards are set to be revealed throughout the week across the internet, culminating in the final reveal at MagicCon: Chicago this weekend. 

First up, let's check out everyone's favorite disc jockey, Three Dog, Galaxy News DJ!

Three Dog, Galaxy News DJ MTG Fallout

  • Three Dog, Galaxy News DJ
    • Legendary Creature - Human Bard
    • 1 power/5 toughness
    • Costs 1 generic, 1 red, and 1 white mana
    • Ability: Whenever you attack, you may pay 2 generic mana and sacrifice an Aura attached to Three Dog, Galaxy News DJ. When you sacrifice an Aura this way, for each other attacking creature you control, create a token that's a copy of that Aura attached to that creature.

Three Dog is a Boros (red/white) player's new best friend, as his ability to copy Auras and attach them to every other creature on his side of the board will be a powerful tool. His five toughness will also allow him to stick around for a while, meaning he'll be broadcasting Auras to his board for enough time to make an impact. 

Imagine a board of 1/1 Soldiers suddenly pumped by a Gryff's Boon, turning them all into 2/1 flyers who are about to turn sideways. Hope you have some birds!

Next, here's Liberty Prime, Recharged!

Liberty Prime, Recharged! MTG Fallout

  • Liberty Prime, Recharged
    • Legendary Artifact Creature - Robot
    • 8 power/8 toughness
    • Costs 2 generic, 1 blue, 1 red, and 1 white mana
    • Keywords: Vigilance, Trample, Haste
    • Ability: Whenever Liberty Prime, Recharged attacks or blocks, sacrifice it unless you pay 2 energy counters
    • Activated Ability: Pay 2 generic mana, tap Liberty Prime, Recharged, and sacrifice an artifact to create 2 energy counters and draw a card.

Liberty Prime is a big bad robot, and that 8 power/8 toughness is nothing to scoff at. The constant need to pay 2 energy counters with every attack stinks, but at the very least Liberty Prime can generate energy on its own, while turning every artifact on the field into a Clue token. You'll need to do some work, but Liberty Prime can be a massive addition to your board in the right situations. 

Moving on, here's the scariest soldier in New Vegas, Legate Lanius, Caesar's Ace!

Legate Lanius MTG Fallout

  • Legate Lanius, Caesar's Ace
    • Legendary Creature - Human Soldier
    • 2 power/2 toughness
    • Costs 2 generic, 1 black, and 1 red mana
    • Ability 1: Decimate - When Legate Lanius enters the battlefield, each opponent sacrifices a tenth of the creatures they control, rounded up.
    • Ability 2: Whenever an opponent sacrifices a creature, put a +1/+1 counter on Legate Lanius.

Legate Lanius is as fearsome as that incredible mask would imply. The fact that he can obliterate 10% of every opponent's board – a fantastic representation of the dictionary definition of "decimate," by the way – is scary enough, but then he gains power and toughness for each of those sacrificed creatures. The card may say 2/2, but we doubt he'll ever actually stay that way when he's summoned. 

Now, here's a cool Sorcery card, Nuclear Fallout:

Nuclear Fallout MTG Fallout

  • Nuclear Fallout
    • Sorcery
    • Costs X generic and 2 black mana
    • Each creature gets twice -X/-X until end of turn. Each player gets X rad counters.

As if Black players needed a new board wipe, here's Nuclear Fallout, which can clear every creature with 8 toughness or less for only six mana! 

This reveal also includes two notable features of the MTG Fallout set: First, the special Pip-Boy treatment where the cards look like they would if viewed through the franchise's iconic wristwear.

Second, this card mentions "rad counters," a new type of counter which players can accrue. When you have a rad counter, at the beginning of your turn after drawing a card, you "mill" – put the top card of your deck right into your discard pile – for every radiation counter you have. If a land is discarded, nothing happens, but if a non-land card is discarded, you lose 1 life and 1 rad counter. 

For example, if you have three rad counters, and you mill three non-land cards, you'll lose three life AND the rad counters. 

As this card provides them in ample supply, we expect these counters to make an impact as soon as players get their hands on them. 

Finally, we have what may turn out to be the set's most impactful reprint: Ravages Of War!

Ravages of War MTG Fallout

  • Ravages of War
    • Sorcery
    • Costs 3 generic and 1 white mana
    • Destroy all lands. 

This card getting reprinted at all is huge for two reasons: 

  • This card hasn't been reprinted in a retail set since its original printing in the Asia-exclusive Portal: Three Kingdoms in 1999. The original card resells for over $250 at time of printing. 
  • The card deals with one of the most controversial mechanics in the game, total land destruction. 

The salt levels will be off the charts when this card hits the field. Thankfully, the card won't be completely ubiquitous, as it will only be available in Collector Booster packs with this unique Pip-Boy treatment. Still, the idea of this card resurfacing is scary, especially in Commander matches. 

Below, you'll find a gallery of more cards revealed during the WeeklyMTG event today. The Magic: The Gathering Fallout Commander decks will be available March 8 at local game stores.
