Wizards of the Coast
Magic: The Gathering'sCore Set 2020 is coming next month, and today, Wizards of the Coast and members of the Magic community have revealed new cards from the upcoming set, including two new Planeswalker cards, two new dinosaur creatures, a legendary Sultai creature, and a few reprints.
The two Planeswalker cards revealed today are Mu Yanling, Skydance, and Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord. The three-to-cast Mu Yanling seems playable in the Standard format as it could protect itself with her first two abilities. Sorin fits well in a Vampire tribal deck but we're still not sure if the new set will have enough good vampires to make this Planeswalker card worth playing.
Check out the previews below:
Mu Yanling, Skydancer
+2: Until your next turn, target creature gets -2/-0 and loses flying.
-3: Create a 4/4 blue Elemental Bird creature with flying
