Today we will be discussing three new Throne of Eldraine cards we missed as well as a spoiler from a Throne of Eldraine novel called The Wildered Quest.
Rowan Planeswalker Deck Cards
About 2 weeks ago, someone leaked three of the French Rowan Planeswalker Deck to be released with Throne of Eldraine. You can see the unofficial translation and card details by clicking on the links below:
- Rowan, Intrepid Sparkmage
- Rowan’s Valiant
- Rowan’s Bodyguard
Rowan, Intrepid Sparkmage
+1: Up to one target creature gains +3/+0 and first strike until end of turn.
-2: Rowan, Intrepid Sparkmage deals 1 damage to up to two target creatures. Those creatures cannot block this turn.
-9: Gain control of all creatures until end of turn, untap them. They gain haste until end of turn.
When Rowan’s Valiant enters the battlefield, search your library for Rowan, Intrepid Sparkmage, reveal it and add it to your hand. Shuffle your library.
As long as you control a Rowan planeswalker, Rowan’s Bodyguard gains +3/+0.
(Note: User Arjay King mentions the actual translation is Battle Guard – this will be amended when the official translation is released.)
As with most Planeswalker deck cards, the cards are not meant to be powerful for competitive play, as they are meant to be for introducing new players to Magic: The Gathering. On MTG Arena, they can only be obtained by redeeming the code contained in the physical product, via Wildcards and possibly through the Mastery system. They cannot be found in packs.
Throne of Eldraine: The Wildered Quest
The exciting new story of Magic’s latest release, Throne of Eldraine. The young warrior mage twins Rowan and Will Kenrith quest for their missing father, the High King. Rowan and Will’s powers are strong, but the world of Eldraine is a dangerous place! A thrilling mashup of Arthurian legend and Grimm’s fairy tales seen through the unique lens of Magic: The Gathering, here you will find magic, monsters, and mystery true to both traditions.
You can read the first several pages of the novel The Wildered Quest here. From this, we can see that the set is more focused on mono colored cards (based on the five courts of the realm) as well as the potential return of Garruk.
With Standard rotation coming around the corner, information regarding Throne of Eldraine is set to ramp up in the coming weeks, so make sure to follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with the latest news and updates.
