Wizards of the Coast is wrapping up the spoiler season for the upcoming Magic: The Gathering crossover set, Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, but today, we get our first look at a few more Dungeons & Dragons-themed rare cards before previews for the Commander pre-constructed arrive this weekend.
You can check out the recently-revealed rare cards from Adventures in the Forgotten Realms below, and to see the rest of the cards, check out our spoiler section here. Rares include a black Devil God who can provide crazy card advantage, a white Dog that can help you catch up on mana, and a couple of legendary artifacts.
More rares from Adventures in the Forgotten Realms revealed today
Asmodeus the Archfiend
This reminds us a lot of Griselbrand and Necrompotence. Being able to draw seven cards for four black mana while Asmodeus is on the field sounds too powerful, but overall, this looks balanced.
This could potentially see some play in Standard constructed thanks to its ramp ability, but it really depends if Dog tribal is viable in the format.
Eye of Vecna
It’s Howling Mine but at a cost of 2 mana and 2 life at the beginning of every upkeep.
Hand of Vecna
This is great if you have the Vecna Zombie God token that the The Book of Vile Darkness can create since you won’t need to pay Hand of Verna’s equip cost to boost it up.
