Will be). It returns the player to a setting infused with Innistrad’s Gothic horror. When the final set, Midnight Hunt (also done on this plane) was a werewolf theme and introduced a cool day / night system, Crimson’s oath revolves around vampires, Includes a number of cards inspired by the one and only Dracula..

Of course, that’s all working, but werewolves and vampires aren’t the only classic horrors. Today, there are new cards that can help boost one of the other giant creature types that exist in Midnight Hunt and currently exist. Extended for Crimson Vow-Zombies. That card is Necro Duality:

“Necroduality is one of my favorite cards in Magic,” product architect Mike Turian told me. “Once you’ve read the cards you picked up, go back and re-evaluate the cards throughout the class to find the perfect card that works best. In this case, use Necroduality to make a copy of each non-token zombie.

Switching Focus from Werewolves For Vampires, it’s one way we’ve been able to continue the splendor of Midnight Hunt while giving Crimson Bow space.

“Another way to make the set stand out is to introduce a new gameplay mechanic that wasn’t available in the Midnight Hunt. For example, Cleeve opens up a whole new space in the idea of ​​casting spells.
