3 New Hints For Magic: The Gathering Cards From Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths Commander Decks Revealed

Over on his Instagram account, Verhey shared a video clip that he recorded while being stuck at home due to the coronavirus, and he reveals three hints for the new cards from the Ikoria Commander decks, including a mono-white ramp card, a rules text that protects you and planeswalkers you control, and Magic's new trilobite.

Here are Verhey's three hints:

"There's a mono-white card that lets you repeatedly ramp Plains from your Library onto the Battlefield!"
"There's the rules text, 'You and planeswalkers you control gain protection from that player.'"
"There's Magic's fourth ever TRILOBITE!"

Watch the video below:


Verhey went on to say that he will share more hints on Monday, so expect a new video clip that day. It looks like Wizards of the Coast is ramping up the power of white after many players criticized the Commander format's lack of power balance in colors, deeming white to be underpowered.


WotC still hasn't revealed the decklists for the Ikoria Commander decks, but the company has already revealed the names of the 5 decks.

Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths will officially be released on April 24, 2020. Prerelease events will take place from April 17-19. Ikoria: Commander will officially release on the same day as the release of the main Ikoria set.
