Bolas continues to revive a zombie god army of his own for the final battle on Ravnica in the upcoming expansion, War of the Spark. Set to release at the end of April, this war might be the most overpowered one of them all. With God-Eternal Kefnet getting spoiled, things are heating up even more.
God-Eternal Kefnet of knowledge
God-Eternal Kefnet is a four mana (two blue) legendary creature zombie with flying and an insane static ability. With a power of four and defense of five, planeswalker players should be concerned. He can also copy instant and sorcery spells right off the top of a player’s library while casting for two less mana.
“You may reveal the first card you draw each turn as you draw it,” the card reads. “Whenever you reveal an instant or sorcery card this way, copy that card and you may cast that copy. That copy cost two less to cast.”
With no determined time limit (end of turn) on the copied instant and sorcery spells, it’ll be interesting to see how God-Eternal Kefnet plays out in a variety of decks and formats. And like his fellow revived god companions, Kefnet can’t be permanently removed from the game.
“When God-Eternal Kefnet dies or is put into exile from the battlefield, you may put it in its owner’s library third from the top,” the card reads.
Cards like Opt and various combat tricks just got an upgrade that no one saw coming. The only downside to Kefnet is revealing the instant or sorcery spell being copied—it levels the playing field slightly, yet still has the advantage.
All God-Eternals, planeswalkers, and a host of other cards in the War of the Spark expansion will become available in MTG Arena on April 25.
