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!
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.
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.
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.
