The Khans of Tarkir Game Day promos have been revealed. Everyone will be getting a full-art Heir of the Wilds for participating and an Utter End for placing within the Top 8. Both are very solid cards to have, especially the foil Utter End!
I do prefer the full-art artwork on Heir of the Wilds. A 2/2 for 1G with Deathtouch is very solid and its Ferocious ability giving it +1/+1 until end of turn when it attacks makes it fairly playable. Alongside War-Name Aspirant, Standard aggro decks have a couple of good cards to fill the holes that will be left with Return to Ravnica block’s rotation.
Obviously, people are always playing for the Top 8 Promo, and this time it’s Utter End. Not only is it a Standard and Modern-playable card, but you can bet it’s going to be very valuable due to the fact that it’s going to be premium removal in Commander. No one likes to “pimp out” decks like Commander players do, and a full art version of a card that should become a White/Black staple in the format should be highly sought after. It’s perhaps one of the best Top 8 Game Day promos in a long while.
I highly doubt that I will be playing Standard for this event, but if you do have a Standard deck, I highly recommend going just to get these two cards.
