Welcome to patch v1.05! We are very excited to release two new Spellslingers, Garruk and Davriel. This is a content-only patch release, no balance changes are included. Please read on to discover more about the characters.
Three things are of utmost importance to Davriel Cane. Dustwillow tea, napping, and avoiding the criminal syndicate tracking him across the multiverse in an attempt to recover the ancient, enormously powerful entity he accidentally allowed to possess him some years ago. However, it is questionable in what order he ranks those priorities, as any of his current demon servants will tell you. Davriel's demon entity gives him the ability to steal other mage’s spells and reuse them at the cost of his (and their) physical well-being. You'll note that this is represented in his ability to play spells of any color, but with the downside of paincast. He has recently taken refuge on Innistrad, hoping to be left alone while styling himself as a dangerous, partially inhuman Lord not to be crossed.
Garruk is a towering mountain of a man who turned his back on civilization long ago, preferring a solitary life in the wilds. He has also been cursed by a magical artifact called the Chain Veil that corrupted his body, dulled his connection to the natural world, and enhanced his desire to hunt. A tenacious tracker, Garruk is a brutal and unforgiving enemy of any who stand in his way, and his natural connection to beasts allows him to enlist them as allies. But even his beasts are corrupted and magically enhanced by the Chain Veil curse that surges through his body, represented by his special Predator's Instinct.
Thanks for playing, and see you in the arena!
