MTG: Legendaries Of Modern Horizons 2

3 Minute Read
May 28 2021

Legendaries are the gold standard of Magic: the Gathering, literally. They have gold borders. And today it’s the golds from MH2.

Modern Horizons 2 is going to be great for Commander Players, no two ways about it. With a wave of legendary creatures both gold bordered and otherwise, there’s a lot to look forward to, not the least of which is the legendary chef, Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar, who prepared the infamous gastronomicon The Underworld Cookbook.

But today we’re going to take a look at the rest of the legendaries that have been revealed so far for Modern Horizons 2, and you’ll see why this is going to be such a boon for Commanders (and multicolored decks too, I suppose). Let’s take a look.


First up, Dakkon, Shadow Slayer whom we’ve seen before, ready to turn your lands into exiled creatures.

Then there’s Carth the Lion, who will be bonkers for any deck that features Planeswalkers.


A lot of graveyard effects in this set, it seems like, and the Priest of Fell Rites brings that coming and going.

Or grab the Arcbound Shikari and unleash an army of electric robot cats (or other artifact creatures).

The Drey Keeper is sure to be a linchpin in any deck that involves squirrels, which given what we’ve seen for MH2, should be all of them .

Speaking of squirrels, don’t forget about the Ravenous Squirrel, whose ferocious jaws will only get bigger the more it finds.


Or how about a Snake Elf? Lonis, Cryptozoologist will ensure your discoveries are always valuable. The more creatures you cast, the further you can delve when you Investigate.

The Boros Legion stands strong in this set with General Ferrous Rokiric leading the charge.

Grist is full of bees. Hungry bees that will destroy your enemies. And with graveyards that fill up, and a massive attack that hits all opponents, Grist is one of those make everyone at the table take notice cards.

If you’re feeling lucky, punk, Yusri, Fortune’s Flame is phenomenal.


Garth One-Eye will have you feeling like it’s 1995 all over again with its powerhouse selection.

And we round out the set with Road///Ruin, which is technically multicolored, and is technically perfect for Junding ’em out.

Jund ’em if you got ’em
