Overview

Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis is a white human Planeswalker, introduced in February 2020 along with the Theros Beyond Death card set.

She has average health, high mana gains with a slightly unbalanced spread, and average deck limits.

Her abilities have themes of Auras and Graveyard gems. She can fetch auras and create a Token Token creature which grows stronger when it's targeted, and give her cards Escape Escape and Buried Buried. She also has minor fetch, life gain, creature buff, and support removal powers.

Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis is the second of two playable Planeswalkers in MtGPQ which embody Elspeth Tirel at different points in her life.
