MtG: 15 Best Theros Beyond Death Cards for Standard

11 of 16

Taranika, Akroan Veteran

Taranika, Akroan Veteran, in combination with Swiftblade Vindicator, can deal 11 damage in total on turn three. That's a lot of damage, which can result in a victory on turn four already.

But even if the chance doesn't come up too often, Taranika can easily turn any of the 1/1 tokens into some really dangerous little cards at any moment.

In this regard, it is very similar to Geist of Saint Traft, a Modern and Legacy staple, which is a remarkable card that has been a favorite of many Magic players for many years. Taranika has similar potential.
