In Dominaria United, Radhas Firebrand gives MTG Aggro decks a powerful 2-drop ...

With the release of Dominaria United, a Radhas Firebrand card that uses the Domain mechanic to increase strength and toughness when it comes to Magic: The Gathering, the Domain mechanic is returning to Magic: The Gathering.

Radha is the grandaughter of Astor the Keldon warlord and a potential planeswalker who never had their spark ignited. Radha has previously appeared in Magic as a legendary creature in the colors Red and Green. This is the case with Radhas Firebrand, a two-drop human warrior who uses their ability and the returning MTG mechanic Domain to overrun opponents.

Radhas Firebrand is a solid two-drop in a creature-heavy Aggro deck as a 3/1, providing the human warrior can assault an opponent directly for at least one turn.

Radhas Firebrand works within the mechanic Domain, decreasing the cost of their activated ability, increasing their strength and toughness. In a Mono-Red deck with three basic land types in play, the activated ability cost is only 2R instead of 5R.

Radhas Firebrand will be released for the first time on September 1 or at the global launch on September 9.
