Strixhaven, Episode 6: Kasmina, Enigma Sage
What if every planeswalker had an extra +2 loyalty ability, and a powerful -8 ultimate? For some, it would make no difference at all. For others, these new abilities would be a game changer. Teferi, Master of Time would gain loyalty at a frightening rate. Many walkers would now be able to ultimate the turn after coming into play. For others, such as Narset, Parter of Veils, the bonus +2 could fuel even more activations of a powerful minus. On top of all that, every planeswalker now gets a wonky ability to make tokens, if push comes to shove.
These are just some of the riddles posed by Kasmina, Enigma Sage. On the surface Kasmina is an underpowered card, barely giving you back a full card worth of value unless you happen to reach her -8. Everything depends on the synergies that Kasmina unlocks. But there's no denying some of these combinations are powerful. We're pushing Fractals to the limit this week with a half dozen new takes on Kasmina in Modern and Pioneer. Let's see what she can do!
