Birth of Meletis ramps White Theros: Beyond Death

A White saga in Theros: Beyond Death was revealed late yesterday, providing ramp support and defense against Aggro. 

Support in White has been weak, but changes are coming with the Theros: Beyond Death (THB) set. Birth of Meletis isn’t a broken saga and it doesn’t increase power levels. But it does provide ramp in White, which hasn’t been seen since Flower//Flourish, and protection.

Here is an English translation of Birth of Meletis:

  • Enchantment-Saga (As this Saga enters and after your draw step, add a lore counter. Sacrifice after step three).
  • Step one: Search your library for a basic Plains card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.
  • Step two: Create a colorless 0/4 Wall artifact creature token with defender.
  • Step three: You gain two life.

There is an alternate translation circling the internet that says “basic land,” instead of “basic Plains.” At this time it seems “Basic Plains” is the proper translation.
