Commander is a variant Magic the Gathering format that is geared toward massive multiplayer battles. Each player chooses a legendary creature as their commander and then builds a 99 card deck that uses only cards of the commander color. Further, the decks can contain only one copy of each card. Deckbuilding and strategy really come into play.
