Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Elbenwald, take a look at this new artifact from Adventures in the Forgotten Realms — Sphere of Annihilation!
Most comparable to other delayed sweeper artifacts such as Perilous Vault and Engineered Explosives, Sphere of Annihilation requires a full turn to come online, but when it does, it cleans the battlefield and graveyards up nicely. While the initial mana and time investment may seem detrimental, it actually puts opponent’s into an awkward spot – having to decide whether they want commit more to the battlefield in order to push damage, or just take a whole turn off. Either way, casting Sphere for two or three mana seems ideal and can really put aggressive decks in a bind.
So what do you think of Sphere of Annihilation? Will it find a home in your favorite black deck? Let us know in the comments!
Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms is scheduled for release on July 23. View our official preview gallery.
