Besides all of the format-specific cards with mysterious and unprecedented abilities in Conspiracy, we should be able to expect that other supplemental-product staple: A handful of EDH-ready new legends with cool build-around abilities. And Nico Nico Douga has spoiled the first of them we know about - the spectral monarch from all of the promo artwork who has the ability to whisk away his subjects to another realm. Here's Breigo, King of Eternity in translation:
Breigo, King of Eternity 2WU
Legendary Creature - Spirit (Rare)
Whenever Breigo, King of Eternity deals combat damage to a player, exile any number of target nonland permanents you control, then return those cards to the battlefield under their owners' control.
He has flavor text, by the way, which has yet to be translated. Blinking is one of the most versatile things you can do in a game of Magic - it can remove harmful Auras, act as a "soft reset" for counters, effectively untap permanents, save creatures from lethal damage and any kind of permanent from destruction spells... and, of course, abuse enters-the-battlefield and leaves-the-battlefield triggers. Being able to do it repeatedly and en masse is, well, pretty crazy. Just pack a Breigo deck with all of your favorite creatures with ETB abilities and suddenly every time he connects you'll have a whole stack full of tasty effects to play around with. Basically, he's destined to be an EDH favorite. And all of this on a nothing-to-sneeze-at 2/4 flying body!
What do you think of this flickering legend? Let me know in the comments.
