The Assassin’s Creed crossover in Magic: The Gathering has brought an exciting new mechanic to the game. Back in 2008, the Morningtide set introduced Prowl, which allowed players to play cards with the Rogue creature type for less mana if they had damaged another player earlier in the turn. Now, the Assassin’s Creed crossover brings back a similar mechanic called Freerunning, where players can reduce the cost of Assassin creature cards after dealing damage to an opponent.

One of the standout cards in this crossover is the Hookblade Veteran, who can bypass defenses with his zipline ability. This ability allows him to count as flying on the player’s turn, making him a formidable attacker. To counter flying defenses, players can use cards like Poison-Blade Mentor to take out blockers like the Towering Viewpoint.

The Ezio-themed starter deck offers players a chance to explore the Assassin’s Creed universe within the Magic: The Gathering game. With cards like Rooftop Bypass and Ezio, Blade of Vengeance, players can build a powerful engine that rewards them for damaging opponents with Assassin creatures.

The crossover also features cards themed around other popular characters from the Assassin’s Creed series, such as Eivor from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Players can also experiment with building decks around pirate themes or historical characters like Cleopatra and Leonardo.

The attention to detail in the artwork of the Assassin’s Creed cards adds to the overall experience of the crossover. Cards featuring characters like Evie and Jacob Frye showcase stunning artwork that captures the essence of the Assassin’s Creed universe. These touches, along with the tight thematic integration of the Ezio deck, make the crossover a fun and engaging experience for players.

Overall, the Assassin’s Creed crossover in Magic: The Gathering has been well-received by players. The professionally designed cards and seamless integration of the Assassin’s Creed theme into the game make for an exciting gameplay experience. With more crossovers on the horizon, such as the upcoming Final Fantasy crossover, players can look forward to exploring new and exciting worlds within the Magic: The Gathering universe.
