In a post to their Facebook page this morning, Wizards of the Coast confirmed a couple of suspicions for upcoming spring set, Oath of the Gatewatch.
For more than a week the internet community has been buzzing with suspicion as copy of Kozilek, the Great Distortion, and a new mana symbol were “spoiled.”
The new mana symbol represents the new basic land, Waste. On the Facebook thread, WotC confirmed Waste will be in Oath of the Gatewatch and subsequent sets. This finally puts in play the additional basic land type that Magic players have been waiting for.
As for the new Kozilek, this Eldrazi monster has a casting cost of 8Waste/Waste and a power and toughness of 12/12/
The abilities read, “When you cast Kozilek, the Great Distortion, if you have fewer than seven cards in hand, draw cards equal to the difference. Menace. Discard a card with converted mana cost X. Counter target spell with converted mana cost X.”
Add to this excellent art by Aleksi Briclot looks fantastic. But don’t take our word for it. Take a look!
