Recently, GameSpot had a big reveal for the upcoming Magic: The Gathering set Ikoria: Lair of Behemoth. We saw Snapdex, Apex of the Hunt, whose Godzilla Series Monster version is none other than King Caesar. Now, we have another reveal for the upcoming set.
Auspicious Starrix is a 6/6 creature from the upcoming set, which will launch in April and May. It utilizes the new Mutate mechanic, which allows you to combine creatures into one, unstoppable beast. Additionally, while using the Mutate mechanic, you exile permanent cards from your library, then put those permanents onto the battlefield. Check out the card below.
“We wanted to go all out showing how awesome Godzilla in Magic would be, so we made sure to bring the new Mutate ability onto these cards,” lead product designer of Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths Mike Turian explained to GameSpot. “Then when you combine Magic and Godzilla, there are so many evergreen abilities that fit perfectly so we mixed in those also. Who doesn’t want to have an amazing Godzilla that tramples over all of your opponent’s puny creatures?”
