For a price of two mana, Haystack enables you to part out a card, making it untargetable till the subsequent time you untap. Identical to within the videogames, an atypical picket cart stuffed with hay can render you utterly invisible and secure. Different thematically apt playing cards drawn direct from the video games embrace Ezio, Blade of Vengeance, a 5/5 legendary creature with Deathtouch, and a model of Leonardo da Vinci who powers up your Thopters in addition to turning random artifacts into much more Thopters.

Among the playing cards on this set obtain a showcase “reminiscence hall” therapy with the characters offered in opposition to the pale backdrops of a loading display screen within the Animus (additionally a card, after all, which helps you to flip a creature you management into a duplicate of a creature that has died). Others have an opportunity of randomly displaying up with textual content written in acceptable languages like Greek or, for Leonardo da Vinci, Italian. Which is cute.

Magic: The Gathering—Murderer’s Creed might be out on July 5.
