Wizards of the Coast has provided us with another exclusive Magic Arena card (that’s also coming to paper Magic of course): Audacity. It’s set to debut in the The Brothers’ War set, which is out on November 11 via pre-release, November 15 in Arena, and November 18 in paper Magic.
As a reminder, here’s a quick rundown of the lore for the release, to set the mood:
“Through nefarious means, the evil Phyrexians establish a foothold on Dominaria. They secretly transform ordinary citizens into deadly sleeper agents who go about their lives, ignorant of their new purpose. As word of the Phyrexian incursion spreads, the people of Dominaria attempt to band together as the sleeper agents threaten to tear them apart.”
The Brothers’ War is going to have all sorts of lore implications, and follows the Dominaria United set that arrived back in September. From here, we’ll be delving even further into the story of the Phyrexians, with Phyrexia: All Will Be One, slated for January 2023. It’s a pretty busy block for Magic, as the Dominaria storyline/setting once again is hitting it pretty big with the community.
Destructoid’s exclusive Magic Arena card: Audacity
As for the card itself, it’s an enchantment aura called Audacity that costs G, enchants a creature, and provides a +2/+0 and trample bonus. When Audacity is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, you draw a card.
This is the sort of thing you wouldn’t mind drawing in most Magic formats, limited included. A low cost always ensures that it’s generally playable (or very playable), and although it’s not a flash/instant-speed enchantment. Plus, the art from Rudy Siswanto is killer and wonderfully showcases the direct conflict from the lore.
As usual, I can’t wait to pick one up and put it in a toploader!
