The offiical Zendikar Rising previews continue to reveal new Magic: The Gathering cards from the upcoming set today, and now Wizards of the Coast has revealed new rare cards including two new legendary creatures: Charix, the Raging Isle and Verazol, the Split Current. Here they are:
This legendary 0/17 Leviathan Crab is a strong defensive creature that’s hard to kill, and can be an effective sideboard against creature-heavy decks that don’t pack a lot of removal. You will need a lot of Islands to give Charix a lot of power, but in a mono-blue deck, that shouldn’t be a problem.
Whenever you cast a kicked spell, you may remove two +1/+1 counters from Verazol. If you do, copy that spell. You may choose new targets for that copy.
It’s not as viable as Hydroid Krasis but in a right build with a good amount of Kicker spells, you can get a lot of value from this card. I just hope Zendikar Rising will have enough Kicker spells that synergize well with this legendary creature.
(T): remove charge counter from ~. Add two mana of one color. Use this mana only to cast kicker spells.
Do you think these new Zendikar Rising rares are powerful enough to see play in competitive Standard format? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
Zendikar Rising is set to release on September 25, 2020; it will release on MTG Arena on Sept. 17.
