The latest free-to-play mobile game instalment of the franchise that should need no introduction has received a new update and, with it, a new Planeswalker.
Magic: Manastrike is mobile game developer Netmarble Corp’s first foray into the illustrious franchise Magic: The Gathering, taking its vast lore into a new direction as a fast-paced PvP strategy game. You can check out our full review of the new game here, but to summarise: so far, so good.
The latest update for the game introduces White/Red Planeswalker Hautli, a new Planeswalker skin, the new Ikoria Battlefield dimension and a patch to balance out the stats of certain cards.
New addition Hautli is a White/Red Planeswalker who, when summoned, offers sustained recovery to the player’s summoned unit with the highest HP with her passive skill, while her active skill inflicts damage and knockback in a circle with her flying blades. A brand new skin has also been introduced for White/Red Planeswalker Nahiri, an ancient Kor warrior with a special power over stone.
Both are now available through this Ikoria-themed season of Magic Pass alongside the new Ikoria Battlefield dimension; a heap of themed content for this season including an Ikoria lobby background and map once you hit rank 6. If you’re wondering where all of this Ikoria content has sprung from, it may have something to do with the release of MTG’s 84th expansion Ikoria: Lair of the Behemoth.
The final part of the update includes some balancing patches to a select few cards by increasing or decreasing certain stats. Here the developers have paid close attention to the frequency in which cards were used, noting how some may be over or underpowered, then adjusted attack power and HP accordingly to level the playing field. It gets a big thumbs up from us.
