Theros - new mechanisms

Theros is coming soon and it brings new keywords:

  • Bestow: creatures with bestow can be cast either as creatures or as Auras targeting a creature.
  • Heroic: appears in italics at the beginning of abilities that trigger whenever you cast a spell that targets the creature with the heroic ability
  • Monstrosity: a new keyword action that puts +1/+1 counters on a creature and may cause other abilities to trigger for further bonuses.
  • Devotion: A player's devotion to [color] is equal to the number of mana symbols of that color among the mana costs of permanents that player controls.
  • Scry: means to look at the top X cards of your library, put any number of them on the bottom of your library in any order, and put the rest on top of your library in any order.
Soon how to draft Theros!


  1. Also of important note is that if you cast a creature for it's Bestow cost, when the enchanted creature dies, the Enchantment Creature you cast for the bestow cost does not go to the graveyard. It becomes the creature you could have initially cast for said card.
