Revealed yesterday on the Magic: the Gathering Twitch stream, Wizards of the Coast (WotC) announced that they’ve partnered with legendary Japanese film studio, Toho Corporation, to include iconic, big-screen monsters such as Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah in Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths.
These monsters will appear in the set as alternate-art versions of existing cards and will be known as Godzilla Series Monster cards. “For each Godzilla Series Monster, we went through Ikoria and found the best flavor fit and gave each Godzilla Series Monster card its own card in the set” said Mike Turian, Principal Product Designer at WotC, in his Collecting Ikoria article on Daily MTG. “A total of 19 cards were given this treatment and one card, the Buy-a-Box card, only exists in its Godzilla Series form, but each of the others has both an Ikoria card and a matching Godzilla Series card.”
