Prophet of Kruphix is one of the newest "Theros" spoilers revealed today Sept. 5, 2013 from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set in an article by Brian David-Marshall on DailyMTG.com. Prophet of Kruphix is a powerful rare Simic creature that untaps all creatures and lands you control on other player's turns. It also allows you to cast creatures as though they had flash.
Prophet of Kruphix - 3GU
Creature - Human Wizard (Rare)
Untap all creatures and lands you control during each other player's untap step.
You may cast creature cards as though they had flash.
"Time is fluid as a dance, and truth as fleeting."
Prophet of Kruphix allows you to attack with your creatures and then still block with them during an opponent's turn. It's using creatures with activated abilities that really allow you to extract value out of this rare creature. A few cards currently in Standard that could be deadly with Prophet of Kruphix include:
- Deathrite Shaman
- Elite Arcanist
- Mercurial Chemister
- Simic Fluxmage
- Vorel of the Hull Clad
Prophet of Kruphix allows you to cast creatures any time you could play an instant. That allows you to set up some deadly plays, such as responding to an opponent's attack with a big blocker that can destroy their creature in combat. You can also simply play your creatures at the end of an opponent's turn so that they can't target them with sorcery spells.
With access to almost every card in the game, it's in multiplayer games like Commander that Prophet of Kruphix really shines. That's because you're able to abuse activated abilities multiple times before it's your turn again.
How will you use Prophet of Kruphix?
