We reveal the new MTG Lost Caverns of Ixalan card, Council of Echoes!

Posted on October 31, 2023

On our second visit to the plane of Ixalan, it’s time to head deep underground.  Magic: the Gathering’s The Lost Caverns of Ixalan launches on 17th November 2023, returning us to the Mesoamerican-inspired plane full of merfolk, pirates, vampires and dinosaurs.  It’s time for a perilous new adventure filled with treasure, glory and rivalry… and maybe more.

With thanks to Wizards Of The Coast, we’re pleased to bring you an exclusive card preview: Council of Echoes.

Council of Echoes


Mana cost: 4UU

Type: Creature – Spirit Advisor

Rarity: Uncommon

Stats: 4/4

Keywords: Flying

Activated abilities: Descend 4 – When ~ enters the battlefield, if there are four or more permanent cards in your graveyard, return up to one target nonland permanent other than ~ to its owner’s hand.

As a 4/4 blue flyer, Council of Echoes is immediately reminiscent of one of the original blue MTG staples: Air Elemental (which was re-printed in the original Ixalan set).  For one mana extra, you get a relevant creature type (Spirit) and a conditional bounce utilising the new Decend ability word, which may come in handy in a sealed or draft game.
