Thalia, Guardian of Thraben Makes Triumphant Return In Innistrad: Crimson Vow

Constructed staple coming back to Standard just in time.

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC), check out a legendary reprint arriving with Innistrad: Crimson Vow — Thalia, Guardian of Thraben!

Thalia is back after debuting in Dark Ascension and going on to be a major player in all Constructed formats she has been a part of, including Historic where she was introduced via Historic Anthology 2. She receives new art by Magali Villeneuve for the normal version and the Dracula series variant. The Eternal Night showcase frame features art by Cabrol.

Noncreature spells costs 1 more to cast.

The two-mana 2/1 legend with first strike is coming back to Standard just in time to punish spell-heavy control and combo decks like Izzet Epiphany. Mono-White Aggro❄ is already a viable choice in the Standard meta and Thalia will no doubt make the deck stronger.

What do you think of the reprint of Thalia, Guardian of Thraben? Does she have another home other than Mono-White Aggro❄?

Innistrad: Crimson Vow is currently scheduled for release on November 19. View our official preview gallery.
