Will Kenrith & Rowan Kenrith – Battlebond
Date Reviewed: June 19, 2018
The Kenrith twins are interesting to me, as they’re certainly both usable by themselves but are clearly intended to be more effective together. For example, Rowan’s +2 which forces creatures to attack is risky without support, as the affected creatures could easily all attack her and Will provides that exact support with his +2. I also noticed that Rowan’s -2 synergizes with her +2 in a similar way to Gideon Jura’s abilities, making her a useful – and table-wide – variation on his “Sentinel” gameplay; and that Will’s -2 helps your teammate cast his sister and can be used on an opponent in a multiplayer game if you ever needed to for some reason. Much of the time, their tandem is likely to be used mainly for dominating combat, but if you get even one of their emblems, you will probably find it hard to lose the game (note that Rowan’s affect’s planeswalker abilities, too). I wonder what you should do if you get both of them at once. I thought of Dragonrage from Fate Reforged, but there might be others . . .
