In this article you’ll find all Crimson Vow spoilers, teasers, and everything else you need to know about the set. So if you’re exciting about the newest MTG set, which will bring us a vampire wedding of all things — let’s get right to it!
Crimson Vow Spoilers
Crimson Vow spoilers start on October 28th, 2021. You’ll be able to find them here, once they become available. You can also watch the preview stream on the official MTG Twitch channel at 9am PT.
However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any exciting news already…
Mark Rosewater (aka. Maro), head designer for Magic the Gathering, posted a Crimson Vow teaser on his Blogatog, as he does with almost every new set. These are usually interesting tidbits, but should be taken with a grain of salt, as we usually don’t get the complete information. So, what did he say?
Returns & Reprints
Perhaps the most interesting thing from all these teasers is the fact that a popular and powerful creature card from an Innistrad set will get a reprint. What could that be? Some guesses and wishes are:
A legendary character will also return, but this time with a new card. It will also get a new creature type — Vampire! Are we getting a vampire Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, or maybe Odric, Master Tactician? We shall see…
There will also be a new legendary creature card, which combines two characters that previously each had their own legendary creature card. Some candidates for this would be:
- Olivia Voldaren & Edgar Markov
- Halana, Kessig Ranger & Alena, Kessig Trapper
- Thalia, Guardian of Thraben & Geist of Saint Traft
Maro also shared some information about the various Crimson Vow mechanics.
A new mechanic will remove something that was never removed before. Another mechanic will be a mirror of an already existing mechanic. It will be interesting to see how this will play out.
A faction mechanic will make a return. Perhaps, this could be Spectacle from Rakdos, which would play nicely with the Vampire life-loss theme that we’ve got in Midnight Hunt.
We’re continuing with Crimson Vow teasers with rule text snippets. These are parts of the rules text of various Crimson Vow cards. Note that this are necessarily complete.
- “At the beginning of your upkeep, any opponent may sacrifice a creature.”
- “…equal to the number of permanents you control that are Spirits and/or enchantments.”
- “If it’s red, you may cast it this turn.”
- “Kraken, Leviathan, Octopus, or Serpent”
- “Then if you control exactly thirteen permanents,”
- “…twice that many of those tokens are created instead.”
- “Whenever a Human you control dies,”
- “…with mana value less than or equal to the number of Vampires you control”
- “Zombies you control have flying.”
Furthermore, we’re getting some interesting counters as well. Note, that these aren’t counters as in Counterspell, but more like a slime counter on Sludge Monster. So, the seven counters, that Mark Rosewater talked about, are:
Which one of these looks the most fun to you? Let us know in the comments below.
Maro also talked about various creature types that will appear in the Crimson Vow. First up here are some interesting non-legendary creatures:
- Angel Soldier
- Eye Horror
- Human Ranger Werewolf
- Serpent Egg
- Zombie Scorpion
Furthermore, there’s a nice teaser for Commander fans. These creature types will be featured on legendary creatures, so you’ll be able to use them as your commanders:
- Human Peasant
- Kraken Horror
- Slug Horror
- Spirit Warlock
- Vampire Noble (there will be two such creatures, and both brand-new ones)
Before we wrap up, here are a couple of teasers about two new cards, which didn’t fit into any of the previous groups.
There will be a card that makes red Dragon Illusion creature tokens with flying and haste.
That’s it for the Maro’s teaser. So, when can you actually get your hands on some Crimson Vow cards?
