With Ravnica Allegiance now live on Magic: The Gathering Arena, a whole host of new creatures are springing to life on the battlefield! This seems like a great time to showcase a few of these creatures with the animations that play each time you summon one of them to fight by your side.

You may have already seen these animations during the MTG Arena Early Access Streamer Event, which previewed the changes coming with the latest patch before they went live globally. Seeing them a second (or third, or fourth . . .) time doesn't make them any less cool, though!

Angel of Grace swoops into action to protect you in the direst situations.

Rakdos, the Showstopper lives to be entertained—and what's more entertaining than random death?

Ravager Wurm erupts from underground, eating a tasty creature or maybe just leaving a crater in the earth.

Skarrgan Hellkite looms over the battlefield, rushing headlong into battle or patiently keeping your opponents at bay.

And if you're looking to keep the damage party going long term, it doesn't get much better than a turn-three Spawn of Mayhem!

These are just a handful of the cards you can see spring into action for you in MTG Arena—most rares and mythic rares in Ravnica Allegiance have their own unique visual effects, and each of the new guild mechanics brings something special as well! To see them all, download MTG Arena today and join us on the battlefield!
