Blue Gets Figure of Destiny Snow Variant In Ascendant Spirit In Kaldheim

The spiritual successor to Figure of Destiny arrives in Kaldheim!

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Raphael Levy, take a look at the newest in the line of Figure of Destiny-esque creatures from Kaldheim — Ascendant Spirit!

{S}{S}: Ascendant Spirit becomes a Spirit Warrior with base power and toughness 2/3

Starting as a one-mana 1/1, Ascendant Spirit can gain +1/+2 in stats and the “Warrior” creature type for just two mana, making this a great one-two curve.

{S}{S}{S}: If Ascendant Spirit is a Warrior, put a flying counter on it and it becomes a Spirt Warrior Angel with base power and toughness 4/4.

You want more creature types? You got it. Paying three snow mana will make Ascendant Spirit an Angel in addition to being a Spirit Warrior, and more importantly, it becomes a 4/4 with a flying counter as well.

{S}{S}{S}{S}: If Ascendant Spirit is an Angel, put two +1/+1 counters on it and it gains “Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player, draw a card.”

Ascendant Spirit’s final ability gives it two +1/+1 counters making it a 6/6, plus it nets you a card each time you deal combat damage. If your opponent doesn’t have an early answer to this early-game mana-sink, the game is likely to be over pretty quick.

So what do you think of Ascendant Spirit? Is this the spiritual successor to Figure of Destiny we’ve been waiting for? Let us know in the comments below!

Kaldheim is currently scheduled to release on February 5. You can check out our official Kaldheim Preview Gallery here.
