For six mana you get a 2/2 and a triple discard (compare to Hypnotic Cloud), for five mana you get a 2/2 and some pretty substantial direct damage, and for eight mana you get the whole package.

For those wondering, Ana was used to refer to green and its enemy colours in the Apocalypse expansion. Apocalypse was all about interaction between enemy colours. See also:
- For white, Dega Disciple, Dega Sanctuary and Degavolver
- For blue, Ceta Disciple, Ceta Sanctuary and Cetavolver
- For black, Necra Disciple, Necra Sanctuary and Necravolver
- For red, Raka Disciple, Raka Sanctuary and Rakavolver
- For green, as mentioned, Ana Disciple, Ana Sanctuary and Anavolver

Invasion block was pretty awesome.

The black kicker alone could win you the game.

These colors represent devastation and ultimate power:

Devastation: discard THREE cards

ultimate power: traitor's roar your opponents krosan cloudscraper

@steinburger1109: Yeah, blue normally doesn't get discard effects, but the 1B kicker has always been a black/red effect: backlash, traitor's roar, delirium. I think it was shifted out of black/red into black/green here.

@ poprockmonster: I think Ameisenmeister meant a wedge cycle of Battlemages. Which would be awesome considering how much better the kickers are on this than Anavolver.

Holy hell, best battlemage so far.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
