New Foreign Language Magic: The Gathering Cards From Theros Beyond Death Revealed

With only less than twenty Magic: The Gathering cards to be officially revealed from Theros Beyond Death, expect the entire set to be fully revealed by the end of this week. Today, more foreign language cards (mostly in Russian) from the new expansion have been revealed, and there are also cards in English.

There's also a new mass removal card that costs only four mana but players who control creatures with power 4 or great get to draw a card, so this can be a drawback if your opponent has a huge creature and you don't. We also get a couple of colorless lands: an anti-combat land called "Labyrinth of Skophos" and a reprint "Unknown Shores".

Check out the Theros Beyond Death cards revealed recently, and their English translations below:

The overall power level of Theros Beyond Death is higher than I expected but thankfully, the set doesn't seem to have any overpowered cards that could potentially ruin the metagame of the Standard format.
