The official spoiler season for Modern Horizons 2 is almost over so that means Magic: The Gathering fans will finally get to see all the brand new cards and reprints from the second-ever straight-to-Modern set. It looks like the new expansion will have a total of three new planeswalker cards, and all of them look pretty powerful.
Today, third planeswalker card from Modern Horizons 2 has been revealed, and it’s called Geyadrone Dihada, a four-to-cast Grixis-colored (blue/black/red) card that comes into play with 4 Loyalty, and has protection from permanents with corruption counters on them. Her +1 ability takes out 2 life from your opponent, and you gain 2 life, then you put a corruption counter on up to one other target creature or planeswalker. Her second ability (-3) lets you control a creature or planeswalker with a corruption counter on it until end of turn. You untap it and it gains haste until end of turn. Her ultimate ability (-7) lets you gain control of all creatures and planeswalkers with a corruption counter.

This is one of the most exciting cards revealed from Modern Horizons 2 so far, but I’m not sure if this will see more play than the other two planeswalkers in the set, Dakkon, Shadow Slayer and Grist, the Hunger Tide. Only time will tell if this card will become viable in Modern Constructed format, but I’m sure this is going to be fun to play in Commander.
