Today Jan. 13, 2014 Kelly Digges revealed Ashiok's Adept, one of the newest "Born of the Gods" spoilers from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set in an article on This heroic black creature card will force your opponent to discard a card every time it's the target of a spell.

Ashiok's Adept - 2B
Creature - Human Wizard (Uncommon)
Heroic - Whenever you cast a spell that targets Ashiok's Adept, each opponent discards a card.
"Every nightmare is a caged bird that yearns to be set free."
-Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver


Ashiok's Adept fits nicely into a deck attempting to abuse Agent of the Fates, ensuring there's always a useful heroic creature to target with your Everflame Eidolon or other bestow creature to target. Because Ashiok's Adept makes your adversary discard, it might make a worthy addition to a deck revolving around Waste Not along other powerful discard spells such as Thoughtseize.

Ashiok's Adept may not be be the most glamorous heroic creature we've seen, however you'll potentially be able to gain a significant amount of card advantage out of it over the course of a long gain. Just hope that your opponent isn't holding a Loxodon Smiter. Ouchies.

How will you use Ashiok's Adept?
