The new Magic: The Gathering set, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, is not just the homeplane of many wild and massive monsters; the expansion also features legendary humans who either have a strong affinity with Ikoria's monsters or despise them (General Kudro).

Today, Wizards of the Coast has revealed two more legendary humans from Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths: a blue/green human druid called "Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy", and a red/white legendary human warrior called "Winota, Joiner of Forces". Here they are:

Kinnan is a fantastic Simic-colored creature that will probably see more play in Brawl or Commander formats than Standard. A 2/2 body for two mana that gives mana dorks or mana rocks a boost of mana production is a great deal by itself. Its activated ability that can help you bring out a bigger creature from your deck just brings a lot of value with this card.

Whenever a non-Human creature you control attacks, look at the top six cards of your library. You may put a Human creature card from among them onto the battlefield tapped and attacking. It gains indestructible until end of turn. Put the rest of the cards on the bottom of your library in a random order.

This red/white 4/4 creature generates card advantage in combat, but you'll have to build your deck a specific way, with just the right amount of human and non-human creatures, so it might be challenging to find that balance.

In addition to these new legendary humans, other cards from Ikoria revealed today incude the Jeskai-colored ultimatum spell, and the tokens from the main set and Commander 2020.

Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths is set to launch on Magic: The Gathering Arena on April 16, for tabletop play in China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong on April 17, and for tabletop play everywhere else on May 15.
