If there is one thing we love on Think Twice, it's sacrificing your own creatures for value. If there are two things we love, it's adding loyalty counters to all of your Planeswalkers at the same time. This fantastic little 2/2 wraps our favorite things into a neat little two-mana package! Poliferate was a super powerful mechanic the first time around, but Planeswalkers have increased in both quantity and quality since we last saw it in Standard.
With 36 Planeswalkers in War of the Spark, and one in every pack for Limited, Martyr for the Cause will have plenty of causes to choose from as it blocks for your team of one of your team of Planeswalkers while increasing the loyalty of all of them.
From a flavor perspective, we see a Selesnyan soldier drawn in classic Zoltan Boros style staring down an Eternal, probably the last one they'll ever see. It's been great to watch all guilds of Ravnica work together throughout the art in War of the Spark.
Poliferate is a powerful mechanic, we think Martyr for the Cause might show up in games of Limited, Standard, and maybe even Commander near you!
