Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Comicbook.com, check out four more cards coming in Historic Anthology 5 — Atarka’s Command, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Court Homunculus, and Merfolk Looter!

The fourth command from Dragons of Tarkir is here and it’s the one that made the biggest mark in Standard, being the main reason Atarka Red splashed for green in an almost mono-red deck. Of course, now it can be used in Gruul Aggro, one of the strongest decks in Historic.

Another Praetor from New Phyrexia joins Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Urabrask the Hidden in Historic. Will this great reanimation target find a home in its new format?

Court Homunculus continues to build on the aggressive artifact theme from many of the Historic Anthologies. This one-drop joins Vault Skirge as new powerups to any deck rocking Tempered Steel.

Lastly, Merfolk Looter joins the fray, though it is one of the more odd inclusions in this set. Merfolk isn’t really a player in Historic, and there are already a decent number of looting creatures available. Merfolk Looter is a classic card and definitely captures the “historic” feel.

Historic Anthology 5 will be released on May 27 and include 25 cards.
