Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths Reveals More Magic: The Gathering Creatures With Mutate

The previews for Magic: The Gathering's next expansion, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths continue today with the reveals of unique creatures that use the new crazy mechanic called Mutate, an ability that lets you combine the creature with another creature to combine their stats and abilities, and many Mutate cards have an ability that triggers when a creature mutates. You can Mutate a bunch of creatures together to create a bigger monster.

Before we get to the new cards revealed today, check out the Mutate mechanic spotlight below:

Two of the Mutate creatures revealed recently are more spell-focused, and it would be interesting to see how these abilities stack when you Mutate them together.

There are also a few creatures with Flash revealed today, including a viable Dimir-colored hybrid-mana creature that will make you play your creatures with Flash more easily and uncounterable.

Check out the cards below:
