When is Prime Day?

Prime Day is running from July 11-12. It’ll be an interesting mix of deals directly from the top at Wizards, and a lot – we can’t emphasize that enough – of deals for accessories.

Magic: The Gathering The Lord of The Rings: Tales of Middle-Earth Prime Day Deals

Some early Prime Day deals on MTG LOTR

Even the beginner players of MTG will have heard about the desperate scramble to find the ultra-rare One Ring LOTR card. However, whilst the One Ring card may have been found, there’s still plenty of reason to play and enjoy the fantastic MTG LOTR set.

Magic: The Gathering deals for Prime Day: Standard, Modern, Limited & more

As we expect with Dungeons & Dragons, Wizards will presumably put a lot of the entry-level products or older sets on discounts.

That means sets from Innistrad: Midnight Hunt onwards will all be legal in Standard until September 2024. Even after they rotate, Commander and other non-rotating formats will be great homes for them.

Magic Prime Day Commander deals

For Commander, we’d hold our breath in terms of what goes on sale. Third-party retailers might still have stock hanging on from the Warhammer 40K crossover that could get slashed in price, but the LOTR preconstructed decks aren’t likely to get hit with a Prime Day deal.

It’ll be the main universe MTG preconstructed Commander decks that see the prices drop. This also goes for things like Game Night, or any starter kits.

An early Prime Day deal has knocked a whopping 38% off this Magic: The Gathering Universes Beyond Warhammer 40,000 Commander Deck Bundle:

MTG Prime Day accessories deals

For accessories, it’ll be a free-for-all. Binders, sleeves, dice. If you need to restock something for your collection, we highly recommend that you seek it out on Prime Day.

Our top recommendations will be anything Dragon Shield, offering sturdy sleeves, but a great play feel. Outside of this, we’ll be on the hunt for things like great dice bundles and things to help you out for those long Commander sessions.
