Hello to everyone


I'm new in magic, I started about 2 month.


I'm trying to make a gruul deck (Red/Green)


Yesterday I went to a magic store, and I buy a Commander Deck 2013 (Nature of the Beast).


Than I asked if it was legal to play with some of the commander cards, in my moder deck, but no one knows.


My question is:

If it is possible, to play modern with some of the commander cards, that came in commander deck?

I ask because I saw some cards that I have in my collection, but the set simbol is diferent, but the card is an exact copy of the card in commander deck.


If it is possible, what are the card or cards that you recomend, to put in my gruul deck?



this is the deck list of the commander deck that i buy...

Commander  - Marath, Will of the Wild

Thanks for all.

The act of being printed in Commander 2013 won't make it legal in modern. However, if the card was already legal in modern, then you can use a copy from commander 2013.


For example: Acidic Slime is legal in modern because it was printed in Magic 2010, Magic 2011, Magic 2012, and Magic 2013 (any one of those would have done the trick). Since it is legal in modern, you can use an Acidic Slimer from Commander 2013.


Example 2: True-name Nemesis hasn't been printed in any of the sets that are legal in modern, so you can't use it in modern.

thanks for the fastest answer.


There is a way to know what cards are able to put i  a modern deck, like a searching tool to know if an commander card was printed in previously editions like 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013...??? can show you what format any given card is legal in. Also, here's a search with all the cards that are in Commander 2013 that are legal in modern.

Thanks a lot.


I'll try it...



I thought that was more.


There are only a few...


nonlands are only four....

one more question.

If the card was printed in Theros, Return to Ravnica and Dragon Maze, for example, if that card exists in this sets, there is compatible with commander, to use in a modern deck?

Cards printed in Theros, Return to Ravnica, and Dragon's Maze are all legal in Modern. You can use a Commander 2013 printing of such a card in a Modern deck.

"Proc" stands for "Programmed Random OCcurance". It does not even vaguely apply to anything Magic cards do. Don't use it.

What do you mean by "compatible with commander"?

  • Mnemonic Wall, for example, appears in Theros.  Theros is on the above list.  Therefore, Mnemonic Wall is valid in a Modern deck.

    Guttersnipe, for example, appears in Return to Ravnica.  Return to Ravnica is on the above list.  Therefore, Guttersnipe is valid in a Modern deck.

    Orzhov Guildgate, for example, appears in Dragon's Maze.  Dragon's Maze is on the above list.  Therefore, Orzhov Guidegate is valid in a Modern deck.


    No, I am not a judge. That's why I like to quote sources such as the rules that trump judges.
