Here, you'll find a list of changes being made to the official Oracle text of some Magic cards with the release of Innistrad: Midnight Hunt. Once the update is live, you can find the official text of any card on Gatherer.

There are no major templating changes to any cards with the release of Innistrad: Midnight Hunt. There is a minor update to one card.

Strangling Grasp

Vengeful Strangler
Strangling Grasp

Strangling grasp received a minor wording update to make it clearer that the player that sacrifices a permanent will still lose 1 life even if the permanent they sacrificed was the enchanted permanent.

Strangling Grasp was:

Enchant creature or planeswalker an opponent controls
At the beginning of your upkeep, enchanted permanent's controller sacrifices a nonland permanent and loses 1 life.

New text:

Enchant creature or planeswalker an opponent controls
At the beginning of your upkeep, enchanted permanent's controller sacrifices a nonland permanent, then that player loses 1 life.
