Titans Uro and Kroxa emerge in Theros: Beyond Death

Two titans dropped in today’s Theros: Beyond Death spoilers, ready to overpower Gods and win matches. 

Titans were the original powers who ruled the plane of Theros. Two of those titans, Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath, and Kroxa, Titan of Death’s Hunger, were finally revealed today after being teased with the Theros: Beyond Death (THB) spoiler The Binding of the Titans. And both are designed as a callback to Magic: The Gathering titans in the M12 set.

The THB titans have an enter-the-battlefield effect and must be sacrificed upon entering unless cast from the graveyard, utilizing the Theros: Beyond Death mechanic, Escape. They are also 6/6 legendary elder giant creatures upon being cast from the graveyard, able to block and trade out with several overpowering creatures presently in Standard. 

Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath

Upon entering the battlefield, Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath gains a player three life and draws a card. It also allows the caster to put another land onto the battlefield. With a CMC of three, one Blue and one Green, Uro’s ETB effect is essentially a mashup of Revitalize and Growth Spiral.
