Three new cards have been spoiled for the upcoming Magic: The Gathering set, Theros: Beyond Death. Courtesy of Gamespot, three wildly popular characters from the Theros block is returning in Beyond Death. We also get a look at a new mechanic called Escape, which allows players to cast that specific spell from the graveyard. The catch is you’ll have to exile a specific amount of cards, plus pay mana to recast that card.
Here’s a look at the three upcoming cards for Theros: Beyond Death:
Ashiok, Nightmare Muse
[+1]: Create a 2/3 blue and black Nightmare creature token with “Whenever this creature attacks or blocks, each opponent exiles the top two cards of their library.”
[-3]: Return target nonland permanent to its owner’s hand, then that player exiles a card from their hand.
[-7]: You may cast up to three face-u[ cards your opponents own from exile without paying their mana costs.
As long as your devotion to white and black is less than seven, Athreos isn’t a creature.
At the beginning of your end step, put a coin counter on another target creature. Whenever a creature with a coin counter on it dies or is put into exile, return that card to the battlefield under your control.
Elspeth, Sun’s Nemesis
[-1]: Up to two target creatures you control each get +2/+1 until end of turn.
[-2]: Creature two 1/1 white Human Soldier creature tokens.
[-3]: You gain 5 life
Escape [Four Colorless/Two White]: Exile four other cards from your graveyard. (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its escape cost.)
