Preview of Magic: The Gathering’s “Hail, Caesar” Deck with Fallout Theme

We might not be receiving a Fallout: New Vegas 2 any time soon, but Obsidian fans still have cause to celebrate! The next video game crossover of Magic: The Gathering will consist of a collection 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.

Headed by New Vegas’ menacing Caesar himself (with the dice-rolling Mr. House as an alternate Commander option), this Red-White-Black deck is brimming with creature sacrificing, token making, and a fittingly thematic amount of Quest counters across its legendary characters. Underneath, you’ll find the names and images of all 100 cards in the deck, as well as some images of what’s in the box itself and further details about it and the other Fallout decks!

You can browse the gallery above to see images of every card in the list, and we’ve constructed the deck on MTGGoldfish for easier browsing as well.

Similar to its Warhammer 40,000 crossover, the four Fallout precons are play-ready out of the box, featuring brand new cards unique to this release and existing cards reprinted with new Fallout-themed art. Although the cards inside can also be separated and used in other decks, these four are designed as a set for the four-player Commander format to allow any Fallout fans interested in using Magic’s game system in their favorite video game world to do so.

Caesar’s deck is centered around what is commonly known as an “aristocrats” theme, creating many little creatures and then sacrificing them for other beneficial effects. The deck also loosely revolves around Quest counters, which has been utilized in Magic to a small extent before but take on a fresh significance when inspired by an RPG packed with actual quests. These often appear on iconic legendary creatures in the deck, and this crossover has drawn inspiration from every Fallout game stretching back to the original.

Apart from Caesar himself, the other three deck options include a Rad-themed one based on the Mothman, a deck that utilizes Magic’s Energy mechanic alongside a collection of artifact cards (including Liberty Prime), and a deck led by the ever-faithful companion Dogmeat, who aptly digs up scrap for you.

Each of those decks even includes two unique Bobblehead artifacts, all with varying effects that get stronger with the more Bobbleheads you have out – for instance, the Luck Bobblehead in “Hail, Caesar” lets you roll dice to produce 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 inventive ways or combining the Fallout cards into a custom deck) and then roll with extreme precision.
