Here we are on day 2 of Throne of Eldraine spoiler season! We’ve had so many cool cards so far, and we got even more today. MTG Arena Standard is going to be very shaken up once these Eldraine cards release. Let’s check them out.
Big Throne of Eldraine Preview Cards
Robber of the Rich: This card is a pretty obvious nod to Robin Hood and has some super interesting text on it! Being able to steal cards from your opponent is great, but this card could really shine in a Rogue tribal deck. Maybe we’ll see one in Standard?
Kenrith, the Retuned King: Father of the Kenrith Twins, the King is 100% made for EDH and Brawl. His 5-color identity will allow for 5-color decks in those formats! He also seems great at playing politics in multiplayer games.
Additional Eldrain Spoilers
Of course, more than just those two were spoiled today. Let’s take a look at all the other MTG Arena cards we saw spoiled.
Whew, there’s a lot to unpack here! Let’s take a look at a couple of these new cards in more detail:
- Clackbridge Troll: This 5 mana 8/8 with Trample is basically an upgraded Desecration Demon. You may be able to hold it back for a few turns, but every time you sac a creature to it, your opponent will be drawing cards and gaining life. If this thing doesn’t get removed, you’re in for a world of hurt!
- Wildborn Preserver: Simic Flash is a deck that will be losing a fair number of its cards at rotation. This can easily go in, and it may even be good in the deck!
- Hypnotic Sprite: While this card may seem bad, it’s a lot better if you look at it as a counterspell that always draws you a 2/1 flier. Not too terrible, huh?
Throne of Eldraine spoiler season has been exciting so far, and there is so much more to come. If you want to keep up to date, check out our MTG news page! If you want to catch up on past spoilers, we’ll have the previous days listed below each daily recap.
