MTG Theros: Beyond Death reveals free sacrifice outlet with Woe Strider

Black in Magic: The Gathering Standard has a free sacrifice outlet via the Theros: Beyond Death horror, Woe Strider. 

Set to release on Jan. 24, Theros: Beyond Death (THB) returns to the plane of Theros with a focus on the underworld. Despite rumors that Wizards of the Coast wasn’t designing more free sacrifice outlets, Woe Strider was revealed today by Star City Games’ Twitter account.

Every time a creature is sacrificed, Woe Strider allows a player to Scry one. It’s a free sacrifice outlet that also has the Escape mechanic. Returning from the graveyard, however, isn’t cheap. Woe Strider costs five mana (double Black) and four exiled cards to return. But when it does, it comes back as a 5/4, thanks to two +1/+1 counters.
