Daxos of Meletis is one of the newest "Theros" spoilers revealed today Sept. 1, 2013 during the PAX Prime world building panel. Featured in Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set, this rare legendary creature will can give you life and card advantage.
Daxos of Meletis - 1WU
Legendary Creature - Human Soldier (Rare)
Daxos of Meletis can't be blocked by creatures with power 3 or greater.
Whenever Daxos of Meletis deals combat damage to a player, exile the top card of that player's library. You gain life equal to that card's converted mana cost. Until end of turn you may cast that card and spend mana as though it were mana of any color to cast it.
If your opponent can't block it, Daxos of Meletis will give you life and potential card advantage. Because Doxos of Meletis can't be blocked by creatures that have a power of three or more, there's a good chance it'll at least trade with whatever your opponent throws in front of it - especially if you use combat tricks or equip this human soldier.
Daxos of Meletis will no doubt play a role in the new Standard once "Theros" is released and the "Innistrad" block rotates out. Likewise, he'll be the centerpiece for many Commander decks.
How will you use Daxos of Meletis?
