Snapdax, Apex Of The Hunt Is Mardu’s Newest Legend

It slices, it dices, and it even strikes twice. Check out Snapdax, Apex of the Hunt.

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Gamespot, check out Mardu’s new Dinosaur Cat Nightmare from Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths – Snapdax, Apex of the Hunt!

Above is the normal version of Snapdax from the Gamespot article, a powerful 3/5 double striker with an even more powerful mutate ability.

Whenever this creature mutates, it deals 4 damage to target creature or planeswalker an opponent controls and you gain 4 life.

On top of an already beefed up stat line for just four mana, Snapdax also doubles as a removal spell for an extra mana while giving a creature of yours double strike.

While Snapdax doesn’t have an already existing deck to slot into, the flexibility of killing a creature or planewalker while being a strong threat on its own could make it the center of a new Mardu deck in Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths Standard.

Snapdax also gets the Showcase and Godzilla Monster Series treatment.
