IGN is excited to reveal two new cards from Dominaria United, the upcoming set of Magic: The Gathering. We’ve premiered the latest in a long-running series of Lotus artifacts with a new rare Merfolk creature with a kicker called the Vodalian Mindsinger and a mythic his rare called the Timeless Lotus.

Both cards are shown in the gallery below and can be flipped over to see each individually.

Magic: The Gathering – Exclusive Dominaria United Card Revealed

Timeless Lotus is a 5-mana legendary artifact that enters the battlefield tapped and can be tapped for 5 additional mana, one of each’s a ton You don’t get a lot of mana from a single mana lock like this, but the high cost and tapped entries slow it down a lot.The two closest comparisons that came to my mind are golden lotusthis is another lotus that costs 5 and taps for 3 monochromatic mana (no need to enter tapped), Jegantha of the Fountaina 5-mana creature that taps one of each color, but with restrictions on how it can be used.

The lotus has always been a symbol of Magic’s raw power, and its lineage goes back to some of the game’s most iconic (and most expensive) First set of cards: Black Lotus.I could go into that history, but if you’re interested in learning more, I highly recommend this video From YouTuber Rhystic Studies, skillfully analyzing its importance, this recent Magic designer Gavin Verhey delves into all the times Lotus has returned to the cards.

Another preview card, the Vodalian Spiritsinger, will please many Merfolk fans. It’s a 2/2 blue Merfolk Wizard for 3 mana that can control creatures with less power than itself as long as you control them. The kicker is that it literally has a kicker: by paying one and red, one and green, or both, you can put it on the battlefield with two or four +1/+1 counters on it. A size that you can get out of and not only increase the cost, but also allow you to steal bigger things. It’s just a shame that the kicker’s red mana pips mean it’s unplayable in most Merfolk-themed Commander decks.
