Garruk the Slayer
Garruk the Slayer- Stand-up


A gigantic Garruk the Slayer card will be included in every Magic 2015 Prerelease box.

Here’s how it works. One player plays his or her Prerelease Magic deck as normal. This player always goes first. Pretty straightforward. The other player, however, plays as Garruk the Slayer! Garruk starts at 20 loyalty, and can activate one loyalty ability each turn.

Like any other Planeswalker, Garruk the Slayer can be attacked—and if his loyalty reaches 0, he loses. But if Garruk’s Horde of Wolves drops the player to 0, then Garruk wins! (And no, the oversized Garruk Planeswalker card can’t be returned to its owner’s hand or otherwise removed—nice try.)

The oversized Garruk Planeswalker card is a key component of Magic 2015’s experience design (designed by Ethan Fleischer and Gavin Verhey), but it’s not the only one!
