As the Eldritch Moon spoilers continue, it is revealed that two Planeswalkers will be making their return to the Magic the Gathering world, as they try to take on the mighty Emrakul, the Promised End. The Planeswalker I want to talk about first is originally from the Avacyn Restored: Tamiyo, Field Researcher. (Pictures below).
Tamiyo costs one less mana to cast, though this time it is with three different colors: Green, White, Blue, and one Colorless, instead of three Colorless and two Blue. The new Tamiyo starts with 4 loyalty counters, just like the original Tamiyo did. Additionally, she has some interesting abilities.
Those abilities are as follows:
+1: Choose up to two target creatures. Until your next turn, whenever either of those creatures deals combat damage, you draw a card.
-2:Tap up to two target nonland permanents. They don't untap during their controller's next untap step.
-7: Draw three cards. You get an emblem with "You may cast nonland cards from your hand without paying their mana costs."
Will this new Tamiyo get a lot of gameplay in the tournaments in the future? I know if I have Tamiyo in my deck I will definitely use her on the tabletop, but that’s just my opinion. As far as seeing this card being used a good amount by pro players, or used in the Grand Prix, we will have to wait for it to be released officially.
How do you feel about the new Tamiyo? What type of deck would you build around her?
As always, thanks for reading my blog!
