Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC), take a look at this powerful uncommon from Innistrad: Midnight Hunt — Gavony Dawnguard!
Not only is Gavony Dawngaurd a reasonably statted three-mana 3/3, but it also comes equipped with built in protection thanks to ward. Most notable, however, is the inclusion of the new day and night mechanic. Gavony Dawngaurd automatically makes it day if it’s neither day nor night upon entering the battlefield, and further capitalizing on this mechanic, whenever it changes to day or night, you’ll get to look at your top four cards and snag a creature that costs three or less.
While we’ve only scratched the surface of Innistrad: Midnight Hunt previews, we’ve already seen quite a few cards that utilize day and night, so it’s likely that this card could be a major value engine, whether played by itself or when paired alongside other cards.
So what do you think of Gavony Dawngaurd? Could this card be a major role player in the new Standard metagame despite being an uncommon? Let us know what you think in the comments!
Innistrad: Midnight Hunt is currently scheduled for release on September 24. View our official preview gallery.
