Don’t cry about it.
Magic: The Gathering’s Core Set 2020 officially arrives from July 2nd, and we’ve been given the chance to exclusively reveal one of its new rare cards.
Flood of Tears is a six-mana sorcery ideal for use in a classic Blue control deck, and it looks a little something like this:
The high mana cost marks it out as something of a late-game play, but the high risk could lead to some very high rewards, allowing for devastating drops to pop up on a newly clean board.
Dropped into a deck with some extra trickery – Nissa, Who Shakes the World could turn those non-returned lands into creatures, for example – and Flood of Tears might make for a very effective play in the near future.
Flood of Tears – and the rest of Core 2020 – will be arriving for Magic: The Gathering Arena on July 2, followed by physical pre-release events on July 5, and a full release for both the physical game and Magic: The Gathering Online on July 12.
