People call him homeless. To that I say he builds his own home. And unlike other cards, odds are his house will be a sturdy one.

"Mankind ill needs a savior such as you!"


For some reason, the J apanese version of this card has vastly superior art... ;-)

More seriously, it's a shame they decided to cut off one of the coolest parts of this artwork-
the frame is blocking the white magic he's conjuring at his fingertip.
It looks really nice with the black wisps surrounding it, and it's part of his flavor now, as well.

As for the card, well... he rocks. The colors aren't for everyone, but he's a very solid pick.
As an Esper player, I've been wanting a good {W/B} PW for ages,
and Sorin does not disappoint!

Wow, I really actually like this, and I'm usually really skeptical about new planeswalkers (I still say Gideon wasn't that great beyond his middle ability). Much like Old Ajani, I gotta say most of power looks like it's in his middle ability - that emblem is NUTS.

his first ability coupled with bloodline keeper makes me want to revive my love for malakir bloodwitch and sanguine bond. as long as no ones running maelstrom pulse and echoing truth you could devastate opponents quickly.

Wow, no comments yet? Sorin 2.0 is definitely really good. His first ability=awesome, his emblem is really underrated, and his last...damn! I think he is really solid, and expect a resurgence of W/B tokens (maybe with a splash of Green or Blue for Gavony Township or Moorland Haunt). But very nice to see an enemy color planeswalker, and a non-broken one, too!

5/5

Only the second planeswalker to create emblems that stack, after Venser, the Sojourner. On the power of this card and various other useful spells, black/white tokens should be a powerful force in the upcoming Standard season.

I think a lot of people are angry about the {W} mana cost because it makes it sound like he sparkles. Don't worry, he doesn't. He's still an immense badass who's willing to stab someone to a wall when magic doesn't work.

Alucard? Shouldn't you be figuring out what happened to Richter?

I always knew he wasn't your typical ALL BLACK kind of planeswalker, just take a look at the flavor text of Day of Judgment (Zendikar edition). It's not explicit but you can see he's not a total mad-man like...Nicol Bolas?

Got 2 during launch and one in my prize, I have to say hes pretty awesome. I am not one to buy a 50$ card though, but having played 2 of them I found them to be really really good at being able to keep himself alive, especially considering my deck was kinda slow to begin with. I like everything about him except I wish the emblem also gave toughness... But I also don't think its needed to make him too overpowered. Great card and since I have enough, I will probably make a token deck with him included. But its good to know his price won't remain high too long, give it some time. 5/5 for his flexibility on aggro and defense, along with his sexy ultimate.

what luck.. I bought a $2 mini-pack at the store tonight, first time I've bough a sealed pack in a decade or more, and got Sorin. Even better, he fits nicely into my RWB commander deck with Kaervek the Merciless, et al.

I really like this new Sorin, but I think his "fair" cost would have been 5CMC, they costed him so aggressively so that he would see play.

My only gripe with this card is the fact that they didn't use the other Sorin art, the one that was all over dailymtg during DKA pre-release.

For people complaining about the price: wait. Liliana cost the same, she's below $30, so CALM THE EF DOWN!

Wizards employee 1: "Hey, man, remember when there was a $50+ planeswalker in Standard?"

Wizards employee 2: "Yeah, that was awesome. Every tournament deck ran four Jace, and you couldn't find a playset under $180 to save your life."

Wizards employee 1: "Yeah, $200 to even get a foot in the door and *try* to compete in a tournament. Those were the days, huh?"

Wizards employee 2: "Yeah. That was dope. Y'know, I really wish Standard could be like that again, but R&D seems pretty apologetic about Jace, so they'll probably play it safe from here on out..."

Wizards employee 1: "Wait, wait, didn't R&D leave *us* in charge of designing the iconic planeswalker for this new block?"

Wizards employees 1 and 2: ... *simultaneous evil grin*

And so another $60 legend was born.

The card I like to combo better with than doubling season is Gilder Bairn. Cheaper card to get a hold of (like a tenth of the cost) and basically does the same thing as far as Sorin is concerned, however doubling season leaves it with one loyalty counter as Sorin kills himself while the Bairn keeps two. Six of one half dozen...Sorins make me happy.

@myrbattlecube

It is a novel idea to kill off your own planeswalkers to get one more loyalty ability, that does work, but yeah he's just overexcited past logic.

You could cast your PW, use a -X ability, kill it with Sorin, and it will reanimate as an entirely new permanent with no memory of its previous existence to use a +X ability.

@darthparallax

Myrbattlecube is right in every way. To begin with, Experiment Kraj will gain the abilities of these Artifact Creature Planeswalkers, but he has no loyalty counters or means to get them (all PWs abilities read "remove X loyalty counters: do this"). You could use Fate Transfer to give Kraj loyalty, but even then he is limited to one loyalty ability per turn.

As Myrbattlecube stated; untapping Kraj with Tezzeret will do nothing. Kraj would not be tapping to activate loyalty abilities.

You also cannot activate Ultimates as many times as you think. A Planeswalker with 0 loyalty goes to the graveyard as a state-ba... (see all)
