Simic Gets New Planeswalker In Kasmina, Enigma Sage In Strixhaven

Strixhaven: School of Mages preview season is upon us! Check out the first planeswalker from the set!

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Sean “Day9” Plott, check out the newest three-mana Simic mythic (move over Uro) from Strixhaven: School of Mages — Kasmina, Enigma Sage!

Each other planeswalker you control has the loyalty abilities of Kasmina, Enigma Sage.

Superfriends anyone? Kasmina, Enigma Sage beefs up any planeswalker you control, making even the weakest ‘walkers have something positive to do on your turn.

+2: Scry 1

Enjoy looking at cards? We do too, and thanks to Kasmina’s passive ability, if you have multiple planeswalkers on the battlefield, the potential to scry three or more cards per turn is very real.

-X: Create a 0/0 green and blue Fractal creature token. Put X +1/+1 counters on it.

While the ultimate goal with Kasmina is to activate her +2 ability enough times to net a big -X play later on, it shouldn’t be overlooked that she can immediately make a 1/1 Fractal to protect herself early on.

-8: Search your library for an instant or sorcery card that shares a color with this planeswalker, exile that card, then shuffle. You may cast that card without paying its mana cost.

Someone sitting around the Commander table is going to have a lot of fun with this one. If you get Kasmina up to eight loyalty to use her ultimate ability, you deserve to have some fun. Here’s a few ideas to start.
