Regenerate cards in Magic: The Gathering allow you provide a temporary defensive mechanism to creatures you control, preventing their destruction and allowing you to continue the battle.

This powerful effect is found on three color cards mostly: white, black, and green. While black is notorious mostly for aggressive decks and might not find a lot of use for this type of effect, white and green can build ramp-up decks and use this effect to protect the most powerful creatures with ease.

Here are the best Regenerate cards in MTG.

Welding jar is a zero-cost card, which gives you a great artifact regeneration ability. You don’t have to pay any additional cost to activate this amazing effect, giving you the opportunity to use it whenever you need it without thinking about your mana. When combined with other cards, it can be a great source of artifact regeneration throughout the entire duration of the match.

Debt of Loyalty is a three-mana cost card which allows you to regenerate and gain control of a certain creature. You can turn the tides of battle around with this cheap spell, which is instant and allows you to negate attacks as well. While you might find some uses for your own creatures for the regeneration part, it’s better to be used on enemy creatures to take control of them.

Dawn Charm
