Essence Symbiote 1Green

Creature - Beast
The Ozolith's appearance spawned a new era of wild mutation on Ikoria. Some creatures hunted different prey, lived in new habitats, and thrived on mutation itself.

Whenever a creature you control mutates, put a +1/+1 counter on that creature and you gain 2 life.


  • 4/17/2020 You gain 2 life when Essence Symbiote’s ability resolves, even if you can’t put a +1/+1 counter on the mutated creature (most likely because it’s left the battlefield).
  • 4/17/2020 If Essence Symbiote mutates, its ability triggers.
