More cards from Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms have been revealed today, including the first Planeswalker card from the set!
During today’s Dungeons & Dragons video premiere, Wizards of the Coast has revealed the new Magic: The Gathering from the upcoming crossover set, Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, and it includes the first Planeswalker card from the expansion, Lolth, Spider Queen. The video also revealed the alternate-art borderless version of the card as well.
For those unfamiliar, Lolth was the most influential goddess of the drow (dark elves), within the pantheon of the Dark Seldarine.
Check out the Planeswalker card featuring Lolth, Spider Queen:
Lolth, Spider Queen
For a five-mana Planeswalker that comes with 4 Loyalty, Lolth is pretty powerful as it gives you card advantage at the cost of 1 life and 0 Loyalty. It can also protect itself by spawning two 2/1 black Spider creature tokesn with menace and reach. Its ultimate ability can be game-winning if you have enough creatures that could sneak in some damage. I could imagine this card being used in token-based strategies, and it’s definitely a bomb in Limited formats.
Another card revealed was Bruenor Battlehammer, a red/white legendary Dwarf Warrior that gives each creature you control +2+0 for each Equipment attached to it, and it lets you pay 0 rather than pay the equip cost of the first equip ability you activate each turn. Wizards also revealed the special version with the Rulebook Showcase frame.
Another card they revealed features Drizzt Do’Urden, the heroic dark elf and protagonist of novels written by R.A. Salvatore. In MTG, Drizzt is a 3/3 green/white Legendary Elf Ranger with Double Strike, and when it enters the battlefield, you create a legendary 4/1 green Cat creature token with trample called Guenhwyvar. Drizzt’s other ability reads: “Whenever a creature dies, if it had power greater than Drizzt’s power, put a number of +1+1 counters on Drizzt equal to the difference.
