Iconic Discard Spell Gets Creature Debut In Tourach, Dread Cantor In Modern Horizons 2

Modern Horizons 2 debuts a Hymn to Tourach on a stick!

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and MTG Big Web, check out the creature debut of an iconic character from Magic’s past in Modern Horizons 2 — Tourach, Dread Cantor!

Kicker BB

Protection from white

Whenever an opponent discards a card, put a +1/+1 counter on Tourach, Dread Cantor.

When Tourach enters the battlefield, if it was kicked, target opponent discards two cards at random.

A two-mana 2/1, Tourach, Dread Cantor is a great addition to decks packing lots of discard spells. Thanks to his protection from white, Tourach can be cast early and dodge cards like Path to Exile, sticking around to get loaded up with +1/+1 counters from each discard spell you cast. In the mid to late-game, you can cast Tourach with kicker to force your opponent to discard two cards at random, netting you a 4/3 in the process.

So what do you think of Tourach, Dread Cantor? Will this Hymn to Tourach variant have a big impact on Mordern? 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.
