Night four of the "Journey Into Nyx" previews have finally begun on DailyMTG.com. There is no particular order to the previews on the "Magic: The Gathering" site and there is no particular order here as well. With that in mind, here is the next card:
Kruphix, God of Horizons - 3GU - Mythic Rare - Legendary Enchantment Creature - 4/7 - Indestructible. As long as your devotion to green and blue is less than seven, Kruphix isn't a creature. You have no maximum hand size. If unused mana would empty from your mana pool, that mana becomes colorless instead.
The first thing that comes to mind when you see Kruphix is that he would make an excellent commander for EDH. That's where his abilities are well suited. Very little does having no maximum hand size ever matter in Standard, and there is also very little chance of you having "unused" mana as well.
These are abilities that commander players will really enjoy using though. With that being said, there are plenty of ways to use colorless mana. One of them is dumping the mana into all different kinds of activated abilities. Another way to is to cast artifacts; lots and lots of artifacts.
Beyond commander, Kruphix is rather lackluster. Having a big body and being indestructible is standard for the gods. Considering he is part green, it's not improbable that he will turn "on." Unfortunately, compared to his brothers, Kruphix is certainly the weakest one of the bunch.
What do you think of Kruphix? Is he your next commander?
"Journey Into Nyx" hits stores on May 2. Prerelease events will be held the weekend of April 26 and 27. It will then be released online May 12. Finally, Game Day events will be held the weekend of May 24 and 25.
