Eventide Orientation

~
Just as with the release of Shadowmoor, Wizards will be providing excellent primer information with the use of videos hosted at YouTube and posted on the Eventide Minisite. To this end, Brandon Bozzi (Creative Coordinator / Associate Developer at Wizards) joins us again as host and tutor. The first video covers hybrid and other instructional videos addressing new mechanics such as Chroma and Retrace will also be made available.









One interesting card Brandon revealed during the first video was 'Clout of the Dominus'.

Clout of the Dominus (Common) - Enchantment - Aura
(u/r)
Enchant Creature
As long as enchanted creature is blue, it gets +1/+1 and has shroud.
As long as enchanted creature is red, it gets +1/+1 and has haste.

For soon-to-be-released Eventide cards, check out the spolers on the minisite, otherwise, stay tuned here on the blog, and I will try to get some spoilers before they are posted at Wizards.

For you spoiler nutters, here are three new ones . . .

Balefire Liege
Creature - Spirit Horror (Rare)
2(r/w)(r/w)(r/w)
Other red creatures you control get +1/+1
Other white creatures you control get +1/+1
Whenever you play a red spell, ~ deals 3 damage to target player.
Whenever you play a white spell, you gain 3 life
2/4

This appears to be quite a bomb - - just be sure that you delivered a fatal blow to your opponent before this comes out latter in the game.

Edge of the Divinity (Common) - Enchantment - Aura
(w/b)
Enchant Creature
As long as enchanted creature is white, it gets +1/+2
As long as enchanted creature is black, it gets +2/+1

This enchantment promises to be a great addition to decks running white / black hybrid critters.


Figure of Destiny - Creature - Kithkin (Rare)
(r/w)
(r/w) - becomes a 2/2 Kithkin Spirit
(r/w)(r/w)(r/w): If ~ is a Spirit, it becomes a 4/4 Kithkin Spirit Warrior
(r/w)(r/w)(r/w)(r/w)(r/w)(r/w): If ~ is a Warrior, it becomes an 8/8 Kithkin Spirit Warrior Avatar with Flying and First Strike.
1/1

This card is featured on the Eventide release posters . . . you probably walked right by one on your way into your local gaming store during Friday Night Magic.

I am somewhat undecided about this card . . .
it could be really great or downright unplayable.

And now for something completely different . . .

Scourge of the Nobilis is to become a playmat and should be available at selected stores during the Pre-Release events.

Some other art images leaked include these two very cool works showing a Cinder and this group of Elves.









Until next time, Happy & Safe Gaming everyone . .
Also - A very Happy CANADA DAY to my fellow Canadians.
