Grixis Gets New Planeswalker In Geyadrone Dihada In Modern Horizons 2

A planeswalker from Modern Horizons 2 rises to challenge Dakkon!

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Aisha Wakatsuki, take a look at this unique Grixis planeswalker from Modern Horizons 2 — Geyadrone Dihada!

Protection from permanents with corruption counters on them

+1: Each opponent loses 2 life and you gain 2 life. Put a corruption counter on up to one other target creature or planeswalker.

Described as the nemesis of Dakkon, Geyadrone’s +1 ability drains and gains for two life and places a corruption counter on another creature or planeswalker, giving her protection from that target.

-3: Gain control of target creature or planeswalker until the end of turn. Untap it and put a corruption counter on it. It gains haste until end of turn.

Working like an Act of Treason that can snatch planeswalkers as well as creatures, Geyadrone’s -3 let’s you steal the target, utilize it as you wish, and then give it back with a corruption counter on it, meaning she’ll be protected from it come the following turn.

-7: Gain control of each permanent with a corruption counter on it.

In the usual planeswalker fashion, Geyadrone’s ultimate ability essentially ends the game if your opponent(s) have enough creatures and planeswalkers with corruption counters on them. Also important to note, the corruption counters Geyadrone distributes don’t go away even if she does, meaning a second copy can come down and immediately pick up where the last one left off.
