The upcoming Magic: The Gathering release of Innistrad: Alchemy A22 will include a five-mana Tiblat planeswalker card, hellbent on supporting Mono-Red and devils that like to burn it all down. 

Scheduled to release on Dec. 9, Innistrad: Alchemy A22 will include a total of 63 new MTG Arena digital-only cards. The new supplemental set also drops with the launch of the Alchemy format and will include Tibalt, Wicked Tormentor. The infamous planeswalker known for causing trouble is a Mono-Red five drop, revealed today by Stephen “Crokeyz” Croke on Twitter.

Five mana is typically too high of a cost within Mono-Red builds, but it’s possible that Tibalt, Wicked Tormentor can still slot in the main deck due to the value he can produce each turn. And as an added bonus, the A22 Tibalt planeswalker can produce any number of devil tokens, unlike Burn Down the House, which can only produce three. 

Players can test out the value of Tibalt, Wicked Tormentor with the release of Innistrad: Alchemy on Dec. 9 via MTG Arena
