Overview

Karn, Scion of Urza is a colorless golem Planeswalker, introduced in April 2018, a month before the release of his origin card set, Dominaria. Being colorless, Karn can generally include cards of any color in his decks, as long as they share a color with the event node on which he plays.

He has high health, a low but perfectly balanced mana bonus spread, and low deck limits.

His abilities have a minor Exile theme, including returning cards from exile to hand with a small mana boost, and fetching a card from the library and exiling others. His abilities can also permanently increase his mana bonuses, as well as create a strong golem TokenToken whose powers depend on how many Supports you control.

Story

The Planeswalker Venser sacrificed himself to free Karn’s mind and body, but Mirrodin, a plane Karn himself had created, was lost. Grief-stricken by the fate of his world and the death of his friend, Karn travels the Multiverse, retracing his steps to ensure the Phyrexian contagion has not taken hold elsewhere. Karn is constantly searching for more weapons he can deploy against the Phyrexians—which has brought him back once again to Dominaria.
