What is the Commander Format?
In this casual, multiplayer format, you start with a life total of 40 (rather than the usual 20) and choose a legendary creature to serve as your Commander. You then choose cards to match your Commander’s color identity to build your deck. A card's color identity is any mana symbol appearing on that card.
The commander deck contains 100 cards: 1 Commander and 99 others. Your deck may contain only one of any individual card, with the exception of basic lands.
The Commander enters play in the command zone. You may cast your commander from the command zone for its normal costs, plus an additional two mana for each previous time it's been cast from the command zone this game. If your Commander is ever headed to the graveyard or exiled, you may return it to its command zone instead.
In addition to the normal Magic loss conditions, you can be defeated in this format by taking 21 or more points of combat damage from a single Commander over the course of the game. The Commander is tracked across zone-changes for this purpose.

What is Magic: the Gathering?
In the Magic game, you play the role of a planeswalker, a powerful wizard who fights other planeswalkers for glory, knowledge, and conquest. Your deck of cards represents all the weapons in your arsenal. It contains the spells you know and the creatures you can summon to fight for you.
Trading card games like the Magic: The Gathering TCG combine collectible cards with a strategy game. You don't know what you'll get in a Magic booster pack. You just start a collection and trade with other players to get the cards you want.
The best part about a trading card game is that it's always changing. You design and build your own unique decks, and each Magic game you play is different. New Magic expansions are released a few times a year, and each new expansion brings new ways to stupefy and defeat your opponents.
