Magic: The Gathering’s New Set Includes Godzilla

It’s massive! It’s ferocious! It’s coming to Magic: The Gathering?! That’s right, Godzilla is making its appearance in the latest set of Magic: The Gathering. This newest set is titled Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths and will take us on the journey of a planeswalker named Lukka. Lukka is a member of the Coppercoats, a military unit tasked with protecting the city of Drannith from savage monsters wandering Ikoria.

“Lukka’s world is forever changed when he forms a mystical connection with a ferocious, winged cat. Such bonds are treasonous in Drannith, forcing Lukka to flee from the very home he was sworn to protect. Now an outcast monster ‘bonder,’ Lukka must survive the wilds of Ikoria with the help of planeswalker Vivien Reid.”

The series will contain a total of 16 Godzilla cards in North America. Japan will get an additional 3 cards, putting their total at 19. The complete card list is:

  • Anguirus, Armored Killer
  • Babygodzilla, Ruin Reborn
  • Biollante, Plant Beast Form
  • Bio-Quartz Spacegodzilla
  • Destoroyah, Perfect Lifeform
  • Dorat, the Perfect Pet

You’ll have to act fast if you want your own Godzilla, King of Monsters card. Fans will only be able to obtain the cards by purchasing a draft booster pack display through a Wizards Play Network store. Each sealed draft booster pack display will contain one Godzilla Series Monster card at random. Additionally, the Collector Boosters will contain two Godzilla Series Monster cards at random. None of these special cards will appear in draft booster packs. So hit up your local card shop and ask about pre-ordering the new set.

You can pre-order Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths right now. The set will release digitally on Magic: The Gathering Arena on April 16. Physical copes will release worldwide on May 15.
