Blue Gets New Merfolk Lord In Svyelun, God of the Sky and Sea In Modern Horizons 2

Merfolk tribal celebrates the arrival of a new God!

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Iyingdi, check out this Merfolk God from Modern Horizons 2 — Svyelun, God of the Sky and Sea!

As long as you control two or more other Merfolks, Svyelun has indestructible.

Whenever Svyelun attacks, draw a card.

Other Merfolks you control have Ward 1.

Hailing from Dominaria, Svyelun is a strong attacker and supporter for Merfolk decks, often entering the battlefield with indestructible if you have a one into two-drop curve. Being indestructible also allows Svyelun to attack freely each turn, netting you a free card. Svyelun’s also protects your other Merfolks by giving them ward, and since her having indestructible depends on you having other Merfolk on the battlefield, your opponent will be forced to pay the ward toll to break through first.

So what do you think of Svyelun? Is she good enough to find a home in Modern Merfolk and beyond? Let us know what you think in the comments!

Modern Horizons 2 is currently scheduled to release on June 18. View our Official Preview Gallery.
