"Theros was the biggest release ever." - Mark Purvis

When you cast Genesis Hydra, reveal the top X cards of your library. You may put a non land permanent card with converted mana cost X or less from among them onto the battlefield. Then shuffle the rest into your library.

0/0

Jenna Helland goes into story. Plenty more monsters for Elspeth to fight.
