Elves Expand Their Ranks With Allosaurus Shepard

Legacy Elves get a powerful new ally in Jumpstart!

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast and gameonAUS, check out the newest member of the Elf tribe from Jumpstart — Allosaurus Shepard!

Despite being previewed for Jumpstart, the format most impacted by this one-mana elf is Legacy, where it adds an incredible layer of protection for your most important spells.

Allosaurus Shepard can’t be countered.

Green spells you control can’t be countered.

Nice Force of Will you got there. Would be a shame if it became a dead card. In all seriousness, Legacy players love their counterspells, and often times games come down to whoever is able to resolve the most powerful spell through a war of countermagic. Allosaurus Shepard completely shuts off the opponent’s counterspells and provides a clear path for the Elves deck to combo off.

4GG: Until the end of turn, each Elf creature you control has a base power and toughness 5/5 and becomes a Dinosaur in addition to its other creature types.

As if making your green spells uncounterable wasn’t enough, the inevitability of your Elf army becoming 5/5s is extremely powerful, and provides an alternate win condition for an already dangerous deck.
