Revealed in a video today June 23, 2014 on GatheringMagic.com, Soul of New Phyrexia is one of the newest Magic: The Gathering cards previewed from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expansion set Magic 2015. Soul of New Phyrexia joins Soul of Shandalar as part of a powerful new cycle of six mythic rare creature cards that are "fixed" Titans (Primeval Titan, Inferno Titan, Frost Titan, Grave Titan, and Sun Titan).
Soul of New Phyrexia - 6
Artifact Creature - Avatar
5: Permanents you control gain indestructible until end of turn
5, Exile Soul of New Phyrexia: Permanents you control gain indestructible until end of turn.
Indestructible isn't a keyword to be trifle with. In fact, it's kind of a big deal. Soul of New Phyreixa laughs at every Wrath of God, Fated Retribution, and almost every other mass sweeper or piece of spot removal that one of your rivals can manage to send its way. Your opponent's only real chance to deal with Soul of New Phyrexia is to exile it with answers such as Swords to Plowshares, Chained to the Rocks, and Banishing Light.
Even if an adversary somehow manages to destroy your Soul of New Phyrexia (say, because you neglected to keep five mana available to use its ability), the best part is that you'll be able to use it again from your graveyard.
Soul of New Phyrexia can be added into almost any deck, though it'll be creature based strategies that may gain the most benefit out of it. Due to its nature as an artifact we suspect that Soul of New Phyrexia will be highly sought after for use in both Standard and casual formats such as Commander, where it will be an MVP.
