Commander 2013 Edition is a product in the Commander series that was released by Wizards of the Coast in November 2013. It was announced at the Magic panel at the San Diego Comic-Con on July 20, 2013.
The Commander 2013 product consists of five tri-color 'shard' decks, each 100 cards strong, that are ready-to-play commander decks right out of the box, with the option of choosing one of the three legendary tri-colored creatures each deck includes as the commander.
Commander 2013 has nine cycles:
- Commanders: Each deck has a shard-colored legendary creature that is the designated commander for the deck they appear in. Some may have a CIP ability that gets stronger every time the commander is cast again, or an ability that directly interacts with the command zone. — Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, Prossh, Skyraider of Kher, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, and Marath, Will of the Wild. 
- Alternative commanders: Each deck has a shard-colored legendary creature that can be used as an alternative commander. — Roon of the Hidden Realm, Sydri, Galvanic Genius, Gahiji, Honored One, Nekusar, the Mindrazer, and Shattergang Brothers.
- Reprinted commanders: Each deck has a shard-colored legendary creature that is a reprint. This creature can also be used as an alternative commander. — Rubinia Soulsinger, Sharuum the Hegemon, Mayael the Anima, Thraximundar, and Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper.
- Tempting offers: Each deck has a card with the new ability word tempting offer. — Tempt with Glory, Tempt with Reflections, Tempt with Discovery, Tempt with Vengeance, and Tempt with Immortality.
- Curses: Each deck has access to the three of the five curses. — Curse of the Forsaken, Curse of Inertia, Curse of Shallow Graves, Curse of Chaos, and Curse of Predation
- Panoramas: Each deck has a panorama from Shards of Alara of the shard associated with that color combinatination. — Jund Panorama, Esper Panorama, Naya Panorama, Grixis Panorama, and Bant Panorama.
