Triton Fortune Hunter is one of the newest "Theros" spoilers revealed today Sept. 6, 2013 from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set in a tweet by Omenspeaker @OracleOfTheros. This uncommon heroic creature turns your targeted spells into cantrips, replacing themselves with other useful cards.
Triton Fortune Hunter - 2U
Creature - Merfolk Soldier
Heroic - Whenever you cast a spell that targets Triton Fortune Hunter, draw a card.
"Thassa has blessed me with power and insight. I am careful not to disappoint her."
We seen almost no new spells from "Theros" other than Bestow creatures, making Triton Fortune Hunter a tough card to evaluate. When paired with cheap spells like Giant Growth or enchantments such as Ordeal of Purphoros, Triton Fortune Hunter can help you blast through your deck while gaining an advantage in combat.
It's fair to say that Triton Fortune Hunter will shine alongside Akroan Crusader and Young Pyromancer in a deck that has spells which can target multiple creatures or is just filled with small spells. It's really unfortunate that Overload cards change from target to all, otherwise Izzet players would certainly have an advantage when it comes to abusing its heroic creatures.
How will you use Triton Fortune Hunter?
