Remember those double-faced creatures that transform into planeswalkers in the 2015 Magic: The Gathering set, Magic Origins? According to Magic head designer Mark Rosewater, those types of cards will eventually return.

When a fan asked if we'll see a "return of flip walkers", Rosewater responded on his Blogatog: "Major when. You all liked the double-faced characters transforming into planeswalkers in Magic Origins and Magic 2019. I'm sure we'll eventually do it again."


The last time they printed a double-faced creature/planeswalker was in Core Set 2019 and it's called Nicol Bolas, the Ravager/ Nicol Bolas, The Arisen.

Creatures that could transform into planeswalkers are cool because it rewards players who can trigger the transforming conditions with a more powerful card that could help you win the game.
