News Round Up: Week of October 25

It’s Commander Legends preview season and the latest set is certainly making waves. The latest release is pushing the boundaries of what a draft environment can be and apparently, testing the limits of card power as well. Recently spoiled, Jeweled Lotus hearkens back to its namesake Black Lotus except it can only be used to cast a Commander. The card generated immediate buzz and has become a bit of a sticking point. While some argue it may have less impact on a game than a Sol Ring, others see it as another step towards powering up Commander. You can check out Jeweled Lotus and the other spoilers, and pre-order Commander Legends, on ChannelFireball’s spoiler page.
