The spirits continue to flood like elementals in Magic: The Gathering Core Set 2020 with the addition of a reprinted Dungeon Geists while Black gains more control with the M20 Rare Legion’s End.
Containing 280 cards, the M20 set is larger than previous Core Sets produced by Wizards of the Coast. And with this change comes cards like Legion’s End and a reprint of Dungeon Geists.
Costing two mana (one black), Legion’s End is a Rare removal sorcery card that hits an opponents battlefield and hand.
“Exile target creature an opponent controls with converted mana cost 2 or less and all other creatures that player controls with the same name as that creature. Then that player reveals their hand and exiles all cards with that name from their hand and graveyard.”
Giving Mono-Black Control another edge over opponents, Legion’s End is brutal when pulled in an opening hand or top-decked early on in a match. As Mono-Black Control continues to climb the metagame rankings, Legion’s End is a great budget card to include in a sideboard while possibly have two in the main deck.
Legion’s End isn’t just a good card for the MTG Standard format, as it would work well in Modern too. Eliminating threats early on in the Modern Format is a game-changer and even a win-con.
Originally printed in Dark Ascension, Dungeon Geists is a three/three spirit flyer with the ability to tap an opponents creature for the duration Dungeon Geists in on the battlefield.
“When Dungeon Geists enters the battlefield, tap target creature an opponent controls. That creature doesn’t untap during its controller’s untap step for as long as you control Dungeon Geists.”
Dungeon Geists isn’t a super powered card, however, it’s a decent one to pick up in Limited Draft, and only costs four mana (double blue) to cast. Everything from the original Dungeon Geists transferred over to the reprint in M20, including the artwork illustrated by Niles Hamn.
Legion’s End and Dungeon Geists can be found in Magic: The Gathering Core Set 2020, set to release on July 12. Prior to the release date is a pre-release Draft from July 5 to 6, and digital players can enjoy M20 early on MTG Arena and Magic Online on July 2.
