Revealed at PAX Prime, Olivia Voldaren is one of the latest cards to be spoiled from Wizards of the Coast’s upcoming expert Magic: the Gathering expansion Innistrad.
Olivia Voldaren – 2BR
Legendary Creature – Vampire (Mythic Rare)
1R: Olivia Voldaren deals 1 damage to another target creature. That creature becomes a vampire in addition to its other types. Put a +1/+1 counter on Olivia Voldaren
3BB: Gain control of target Vampire for as long as you control Olivia Voldaren.
Who needs a Mind Control when you have Innistrad‘s Olivia Voldaren? For just two more mana (a total of seven), you can continue to steal every creature on the battlefield while also making Olivia Voldaren larger.
There is no doubt that Olivia Voldaren will find a home in many Commander and Standard decks, perhaps even yours.
Several other Innistrad spoilers include Moonmist, Civilized Scholar, Diregaf Ghoul, Curse of the Bloody Tome, Daybreak Ranger, Ludevic’s Test Subject, Bloodgift Demon, Woodland Cemetery, and Elite Inquisitor.
Innistrad contains 264 cards, and will be released on September 30, 2011. Innistrad will be followed by Dark Ascension.
Innistrad Prerelease events will occur on September 24-25, 2011, there will be Innistrad Launch Parties on September 30-October 3, 2011, and Innistrad will be released on Magic Online October 17, 2011. The Innistrad Game Day will be on October 29-30, 2011.
