is the latest set for Magic: The Gathering
(MTG), taking place within Magic’s original plane of Dominaria with a tale all about heroes and villains clashing in a cinematic setting. It’s also the first set in a new story arc coming. And with hundreds of cards set to debut with Dominaria United, our friends at Wizards of the Coast have given us a sneak peek at one - Legendary Creature, Elas il-Kor. The Sadistic Pilgrim.
A Phyrexianized Kor woman from Dominaria and something of a nightmarish horror on the account of black liquid coming out of her eye ducts and dripping off her hand - both depicted in the awesome artwork. The Phyrexians themselves are one of the greatest threats to the multiverse, so this card is more of a villainous Legendary Creature. This can be seen in her abilities that focus on the static ability of Deathtouch.

Some very powerful possibilities with this one, all about giving and taking life and being able to keep a steady pool of creature cards in play. No doubt creature fans will be wanting some Elas il-Kor action.
