First Look at Magic: The Gathering's Fallout-Themed "Hail, Caesar" Deck

We may not be getting a Fallout: New Vegas 2 any time soon, but Obsidian fans still have reason to rejoice! Magic: The Gathering's next video game crossover will be a set of four Fallout-themed preconstructed decks for its most popular format, Commander – and today we've got the full reveal of the "Hail, Caesar" deck.


Led by New Vegas' menacing Caesar himself (with the dice-rolling Mr. House as an altnerate Commander option), this Red-White-Black deck is full of creature sacrificing, token making, and a thematically fitting amount of Quest counters across its legendary characters. You can see the names and images of all 100 cards in the deck below, as well as some photos of what's in the box itself and more info about it and the other Fallout decks further down!

, the four Fallout precons are ready to play with right out of the box, with brand new cards unique to this release and existing cards reprinted with new Fallout-themed art. While the cards inside can be picked apart and used in other decks as well, these four are designed as a bit of a set for the four-player Commander format so that any Fallout fans looking to simply use Magic's game system in their favorite video game world can do so.

Caesar's deck is built in part around what's commonly called an "aristocrats" theme, making lots of little creatures and then sacrificing them for other beneficial effects. A sub-theme of the deck is also loosely tied around Quest counters, which have been used in Magic a small amount before, but take on a new meaning when themed after an RPG full of literal quests. Those often show up on iconic legendary creatures in the deck, and this crossover has pulled from every Fallout game stretching back to the very first for inspiration.


Beyond Caesar himself, the other three deck options include a Rad-themed one built around the Mothman, a deck that uses Magic's Energy mechanic alongside a bunch of artifact cards (including Liberty Prime), and a deck led by the ever-faithful companion Dogmeat, who fittingly digs up scrap for you.

Each of those decks even contains two unique Bobblehead artifacts, all of which have different effects that get more powerful the more Bobbleheads you have out - for example, the Luck Bobblehead in "Hail, Caesar" lets you roll dice to make mana-generating Treasure, but will even cause you to win the game outright if you manage to get enough Bobbleheads (either by copying them in creative ways or mashing the Fallout cards together into a custom deck) and then roll absurdly precisely.


All four of these Fallout decks will

, though they are available for pre-order right now. Wizards of the Coast is also selling Collector Boosters that give you a chance to open cards from the decks in special Pip-Boy themed art treatments, as well as other cards in Fallout's signature cartoony style. And if Fallout isn't your cup of tea, Magic also has upcoming crossovers scheduled for Assassin's Creed, Final Fantasy, and even Marvel.
