Alara Card Spoiler 1

I realise that in the last post I promised a summary from the Shards of Alara Orb of Insight . . . I lied sorry. Instead we have for you eight cards leaked from the French publication, Mana Rouge Magazine.

Blight Lightning 1{B}{R}
(Eclair de fl├ętrissement)
Sorcery, Common
Blight Lightning deals 3 damages to target player. That player discards two cards.

It could just be a printing problem here but it appears that the border around the image / text is partially pink ? ?

Courier's Capsule 1{U}
(Capsule du messager)
Artifact, Common
1{U}, Tap, Sacrifice Courier's Capsule: Draw two cards.

This could be a decent 2-card draw for 2 mana.

Goblin Assault 2{R}
(Assaut gobelin)
Enchantment, Rare
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a 1/1 red Goblin creature token with haste into play.
Goblin creatures attack each turn if able.

My initial opinion - a VERY decent card which I may consider working in some combos with.

Jund Battlemage 2{R}
(Mage de bataille de Jund)
Creature - Human Shaman, Uncommon
{B}, Tap: Target player loses 1 life.
{G}, Tap: Put a 1/1 Green Saproling creature token into play.

This may very well be quite a threatening card on drop 3 with possible saproling generation by the next turn.

Naya Battlemage 2{G}
(Mage de bataille de Naya)
Creature - Human Shaman Uncommon
{R}, Tap: Target creature gets +2/+0 until end of turn.
{W}, Tap: Tap target creature.

Solid repeatable activated abilities all at a fairly decent mana cost.

Rhox Warmonk {G}{W}{U}
(Moine de guerre rhox)
Creature - Rhino Monk, Uncommon

I'm not sure if the like this Rhino just because of the tri-coloured cost . . . good luck if you can actually get this out in turn 3.

Stoic Angel 1{G}{W}{U}
(Ange Stoïque)
Creature - Angel Rare
Flying, vigilance
Players can't untap more than one creature during their untap step.

Two words - - Awesome Card ! This is beyond the reach of most spot removal and does some serious interrupt to your opponent's play. Again - the draw-back - try to get this out by turn 4.

Tower Gargoyle 1{W}{U}{B}
(Gargouille de la tour)
Artifact Creature - Gargoyle Uncommon

A 4 drop for a 4/4 flyer is decent - again my hang-up with the tri-colour mana demand.

These are some really solid cards. I hope that other spells / enchantments or rare lands help us out with getting the correct mana colour out in time.

Stay tuned for more spoiler goodness . . .

The 'partially pink' border on blight lightning, aka blightning, is actually there to indicate that is a black/red spell as you can tell from it's mana cost. It mimics the switch in background color of a black/red spell from Shadowmoor/Eventide.
