Anax and Cymede is one of the newest rare creature cards spoiled today Aug. 19, 2013 from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming "Magic: The Gathering" product "Duel Decks: Heroes vs. Monsters. Revealed in an article by Trick Jarrett on DailyMTG.com, Anax and Cymede is one of six preview cards from the upcoming expert expansion set "Theros."
Anax and Cymede - 1RW
Legendary Creature - Human Solider (Rare)
First strike, vigilance
Heroic - Whenever you cast a spell that targets Anax and Cymede, creatures you control get +1/+1 and gain trample until end of turn.
Akros's greatest heroes are also its royalty.
Anax and Cymede makes a fantastic addition to Boros decks filled with battalion creatures like Boros Elite and Firefist Striker. Targeting Anax and Cymede with Boros Charm will make this heroic duo deal an impressive eight damage while also pumping the rest of your team.
Jarrett points out that the heroic ability of Anax and Cymede and other creatures in "Theros" is particularly powerful because "the effect still happens even if the heroic creature is killed in response to the spell, or if the spell targeting the heroic creature gets countered."
It's important to note that Anax and Cymede is a Legendary Creature, giving players an aggressive option in "Commander."
How will you use Anax and Cymede?
