Rivals of Ixalan Promos Revealed: Captain's Hook, Evolving Wilds & More
Rivals of Ixalan, the next Magic: The Gathering set, will be released next month, so expect to see spoilers hit the webs this month. Today, Redditor fireshoes shared a photo revealing four promo cards from the upcoming expansion, including Captain's Hook, Evolving Wilds, Ghalta, Primal Hunger, and City's Blessing. Check out the photo:
The art of Captain's Hook wasn't fully revealed but you can read the whole text in the photo. "Equipped creature gets +2/+0, has Menace, and is a Pirate in addition to its creature type. Whenever Captain's Hook becomes unattached from a permanent, destroy that permanent." It's cool to see that pirates are getting more support in the new set, and hopefully, we'll see this creature type emerge in competitive Standard soon.
City's Blessing is the most intriguing of the four. Here's the full image:
We still have no idea how this card will actually affect the game, so we'll have to wait until Wizards of the Coast explain the mechanics of the new set.
Another Rivals of Ixalan card was revealed today: Brass's Bounty. Check it out:
