Agent of the Fates is one of the newest "Theros" spoilers revealed Sept. 11, 2013 from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set in a video by Evan Erwin on StarCityGames.com. This heroic rare black creature can have a devastating impact on your opponent's side of the battlefield.
Agent of the Fates - 1BB
Creature - Human Assassin (Rare)
Heroic - Whenever you cast a spell that targets Agent of the Fates, each opponent sacrifices a creature.
"You are breathing borrowed air."
It doesn't matter what spell you target Agent of the Fates with, each time you do your opponent will be forced to sacrifice a creature. Over the course of a long match that can add up to a brutal amount of card advantage.
Nighthowler makes a great on-color bestow creature to enchant Agent of the Fates. The two cards have a bit of synergy together as targeting Agent of the Fates with Nighthowler will ensure that your assassin gets at least +1/+1. When Agent of the Fates finally dies in combat it'll take out whatever creature blocked it making Nighthowler at least a 3/3 creature when it falls off. Splashing green will allow you to play Commune with the Gods and Grisly Salvage to help get more creatures into your graveyard, and you'll be able to reanimate threats like Ashen Rider or Shadowborn Demon with Rescue from the Underworld and pump your Nighthowler even further.
Erwin notes that if your opponent tries to destroy Agent of the Fates you can bounce it back into your hand with Voyage's End. Another option might be to include Agent of the Fates alongside Triad of Fate in a deck abusing humans with Xathrid Necromancer. If you're running white you'll want to include Dauntless Onslught, which is amazing if you have two Agent of the Fates on the battlefield. Two other great white heroic creatures are Phalanx Leader and Fabled Hero .
