Magic: The Gathering (MTG) Commander, also known as EDH (Elder Dragon Highlander), is a popular multiplayer format of the Magic: The Gathering card game. Here’s a brief overview:

  1. Deck Composition: Players construct a 100-card singleton deck, meaning each card (except basic lands) can only have one copy. Each deck is led by a legendary creature or planeswalker, known as the "Commander".

  2. Commander: The Commander dictates the color identity of the deck, meaning the deck can only include cards that match the colors of the Commander.

  3. Gameplay: The format is typically played in multiplayer settings, usually with 3-5 players. Each player starts with 40 life instead of the usual 20. The game can involve various political strategies and alliances.

  4. Special Rules: There are unique rules such as the "Commander Tax", where each time a Commander is cast from the Command Zone, it costs an additional 2 mana for each previous time it has been cast from there.

  5. Winning the Game: Players can win through traditional means such as reducing opponents' life totals to zero, forcing them to draw from an empty deck, or achieving specific card-based win conditions. An additional rule is that if a player takes 21 or more combat damage from a single Commander over the course of the game, they lose the game.

Commander is celebrated for its creativity, social interactions, and the variety it brings, making it a beloved format within the MTG community.
