In the storyline of Magic: The Gathering's latest set, Dominaria United, one of the most beloved planeswalkers, Ajani Goldmane, has been corrupted or 'compleated' by the evil Phyrexians. His 'compleated' form is known as Ajani, Sleeper Agent, and now, a new MTG Arena avatar features his corrupted form.

As you can see, the latest expansion brings back Phyrexian mana cost, which gives players the option to pay 2 life instead of mana. The mythic rare legendary Planeswalker card lets you play Ajani for only 3 mana if you pay 2 life but 4 total mana if you don't, giving players more versatility to casting the card.
