Theros: Beyond Death Previews – Gray Merchant of Asphodel

The official Magic: The Gathering Twitter account today revealed Gray Merchant of Asphodel, and he comes bearing gifts on Christmas! This is a uncommon black card to be released with Theros: Beyond Death on January 16, 2020, that showcases the Devotion mechanic.

This card is actually a reprint from the previous Theros set, and was one of the fan favorites affectionately nicknamed “Gary” at the time. It returns to MTG Arena as an uncommon, and many players will no doubt try and make Mono Black Devotion work again using this card as a finisher combined with cards such as Ayara, First of Locthwain and Yarok’s Fenlurker in Standard.
