Any of the five Magic the Gathering Demon crime lords ruling the city of New Capenna are legendary creatures in the coming Streets of New Capenna Set, featuring Jetmir, Nexus of Revels, which has a Cat Demon creature type.
The release of Streets of New Capenna (SNC) will take magic Players to a new level within the multiverse, showcasing mobster and noir themes built around five demonic crime families and a magical elixir called Halo. The Cabaretti family is known for their extravagant parties and lifestyle within the MTG Colors red, green and white – with green as the focus. At the head of the family is a cat demon named Jetmir, whose legendary card was revealed today via The Command Zone.
Jetmir, Nexus of the Revels
- CMC: 1RGW
- kind: Legendary Creature – Cat Demon
- rarity: Mythic Rare
- statistics: 5/4
- First skill: Creatures you control get +1/+0 and have vigilance as long as you control three or more creatures
- second ability: Creatures you control also get +1/+0 and gain trample as long as you control six or more creatures
- Third skill: Creatures you control also get +1/+0 and have double strike as long as you control nine or more creatures
The cat demon Jetmir, Nexus of Revels, captures the flavor of the Cabaretti family by gaining power through an increase in creatures you control on the battlefield. According to creative producer Laren Bond, green is the main color for the Cabaretti and focuses on a creature theme and long-range strategy.
Jetmir, Nexus of Revels counts itself as it totals the number of creatures on the battlefield, scaling in power with each creature added, either via tokens or creature spells. Going wide with a total of nine creatures is difficult, given the number of board wipes in Standard, but not impossible.
The Cat Demon legendary creature will likely be playable in the Commander format and depending on how much the Naya is supported MTG Colors come in Limited, Jetmir, Nexus of Revels has a solid amount of potential to burst within the SNC Limited format.
Players can check out Jetmir, Nexus of Revels with SNC’s digital launch on April 28th and in pre-release events beginning April 22nd.
