Flying, first strike, vigilance, trample

In true Akroma fashion, she comes equipped with a ton of powerful keywords, but also an equally powerful ability.

At the beginning of each combat, until end of turn, each other creature you control gets +1/+1 if it has flying, +1/+1 if it has first strike, and so on for double strike, deathtouch, haste, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink, menace, protection, reach, trample, vigilance, and partner.

That is… a lot of text. Basically, if your creatures have any keywords, they get +1/+1 at the start of each combat. It’s important to note that this includes your opponent’s combat steps, as well as any extra combat steps you may take, using cards like Aurelia, the Warleader, Combat Celebrant, Moraug, Fury of Akoum, and many others.

Previewed alongside Akroma was her accompanying modal “Will” card, part of a cycle that “allows you to do both modes if you control the proper commander.”

So what do you think of the new Akroma? Will she be your next commander or fit better into an Angel tribal strategy? Let us know in the comments below!
