Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) take a look at the first planeswalker to be revealed from Innistrad: Crimson Vow — Sorin the Mirthless!
For four mana, Sorin the Mirthless starts with four loyalty and the option to use either his +1 ability, allowing you to gain card advantage in exchange for life, or -2 to create a 2/3 black Vampire with flying and lifelink.
Having access to both protection and card advantage already puts Sorin in contention for being a strong, mid-game planeswalker, but his -7 ability being able to deal 13 damage to any target and gain life makes him a dangerous threat if left unanswered as well.
In addition to his normal art and frame, Sorin the Mirthless will also be available in four (yes, four) alternate art variants, all of which you can view below.
So what do you think of Sorin the Mirthless? Will this be Standard’s next powerful planeswalker? Let us know what you think in the comments.
Innistrad: Crimson Vow is currently scheduled for release on November 19. View our official preview gallery.
