Rivals of Ixalan will introduce five legendary elder dinosaurs, and the Ixalan art book recently revealed the artworks featuring them. Based on their appearances, it looks like there's an elder dinosaur for each color, and today, the green and white elder dinosaurs have been revealed: Zetalpa, Primal Dawn and Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Check them out: 

Zetalpa, Primal Dawn

Ghalta, Primal Hunger

They're both huge and cost a lot of mana to cast. They'll probably fit in ramp strategies. Hopefully, they'll both see competitive play. 

Three more elder dinosaurs will be revealed soon. We already know that the black one is Zacama, Primal Calamity and the red one Etali, Primal Storm. The blue is called Primal Tide but we still don't know its name. Each one of them is massive and powerful, and their artworks rock!
