Black Gets Zombie Token Generator In Headless Rider In Innistrad: Crimson Vow

Zombie tribal gets a significant addition with the arrival of Headless Rider in Innistrad: Crimson Vow

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and the Magic Arena Subreddit, check out this sweet insurance policy for your Zombies from Innistrad: Crimson Vow — Headless Rider!

Whenever Headless Rider or another nontoken Zombie you control dies, create a 2/2 black Zombie creature token.

Most comparable to cards like Xathrid Necromancer, Headless Rider is an aggressively statted three-mana 3/1 that not only replaces itself with a 2/2 Zombie when it dies, but also all your other nontoken Zombies as well. While options for Zombie tribal may be somewhat limited in Standard, Headless Rider pairs great with cards like Champion of the Perished, Dungeon Crawler, and Tainted Adversary and could make for a fun brew in the new Standard.

So what do you think of Headless Rider? Will it be enough to propel Zombie tribal into the Innistrad: Crimson Vow Standard metagame? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Innistrad: Crimson Vow is currently scheduled for release on November 19. View our official preview gallery.
