Katie is a copy editor and occasional writer for DailyMTG, as well as a longtime Magic player with a fondness for giant green creatures. She especially loves Commander, despite having the patience of a fruit fly, and might glare at you if your turn takes too long.

When we announced Explorers of Ixalan, we gave you a peek at the game itself but not a lot of details about what's in the four decks. So undoubtedly you've spent the last month in a state of terrible confusion, constantly wondering what could be contained in those pretty boxes. (I promise it's cards. And zero scorpions.)

Well, I'm happy to say that your wait is over! Feast your eyes on all four decklists, so that by the time you have the game, you'll already know which one you want to call dibs on. Note, also, that the cards within are not exclusively from Ixalan, although they are themed around the set's four iconic tribes.
