The spoiler season for Magic: The Gathering Core Set 2020 has plenty of female power with the latest addition of Angel of Vitality.

Set to release on July 12, Core Set 2020 is the fourth Magic: The Gathering expansion in 2019. With a total of 280 cards, the storyline focuses on MTG planeswalker Chandra and perhaps a strong female supporting angel cast, beginning with Angel of Vitality.

With a casting cost of three mana (one white), Angel of Vitality is so much more than a two/two flyer. She has two static abilities, both focusing on the mechanic of lifegain. Angel of Vitality also has stunning artwork illustrated by Johannes Voss.
