Modern Horizons 2’s second Planeswalker card has been revealed!

The official preview season for Modern Horizons 2 continues today with brand new Magic: The Gathering cards and reprints being revealed for the upcoming straight-to-Modern set.

Today, Wizards of the Coast has revealed a new legendary Planeswalker card called Grist, the Hunter Tide, a three-to-cast black/green card that comes with 3 Loyalty, and it has a static ability that says that Grist is a 1/1 Insect creature in addition to its other types when it isn’t on the battlefield. Its first ability (+1) lets you create a 1/1 black and green Insect creature token, then mill a card, and if an Insect card was milled this way, you put a loyalty counter on Grist and repeat the process. Its second ability (-2) lets you sacrifice a creature, and if you do, you destroy target creature or Planeswalker. Its ultimate ability (-5) makes each opponent lose life equal to the number of creature cards in your graveyard.

Grist looks like a viable card to have in Modern decks with graveyard-focused strategies like Dredge, and its ability to be a 1/1 Insect creature in other zones other than the battlefield means that if another copy of Grist is milled with its first ability, you get to put a Loyalty counter on the Grist on the battlefield.

The Grist preview confirms one of the leaked rumors about a “Planeswalker that counts as a 1/1 insect in every other zone (aka you can Green Sun’s Zenith it into play)”.

This is the second Planeswalker card revealed from Modern Horizons 2, after Dakkon, Shadow Slayer.
