When it comes to Magic: The Gathering’s Planeswalker cards, there are definitely hits and misses. In recent events, War of the Spark showed us that Wizards of the Coast was down with experimenting and putting very strong effects on Planeswalkers like we’ve never seen before. Today, Modern Horizon spoilers continued to roll out with our second ever 2 mana Planeswalker: Wrenn and Six.
This Planeswalker is a little different when compared to the ones we usually get. Lore-wise, the reveal article had the following to say about them:
“So what is that thing? Well, Wrenn is the being in front and Six is a Treefolk host carrying Wrenn around. Six is the sixth Treefolk, a mech-like vehicle for Wrenn to symbiotically pilot.”
So, we have a Planeswalker walking around in a big Treant-Mech, which may be one of the cooler character designs in MTG.
Looking at the abilities of our newest Planeswalker, it does some powerful things. Let’s get into it a bit:
Wrenn and Six will more than likely be tried out in Ponza and may even spawn its own archetype in Modern alongside Life from the Loam. In Legacy, Wrenn and Six slots into RG Lands easily and can enable Wasteland locks pretty quickly. It will definitely get tested and has a good chance of finding a home.
