3) Paragon of Ameshia
3) Blood Tyrant

It was noted that Mirror-sigil Sergent also has a new mechanic.
Paladin21 from the boards attended the recent World Championships and had this to share with us with regards to what Aaron Forsythe and Matt Place had discussed with attendees about the future set and edition releases.
- Eleventh Edition Core Set will be black bordered, as will all core sets going forward.
- Unfortunately, Eleventh Edition Core Set selection / voting will not be open to players.
- Matt Place indicated to Paladin21 after the official show that Conflux had some cards in it to "fix" faeries and allow the metagame to grow. No additional details.
- Eleventh Edition Core Set is confirmed to have Mythic Rares with the possibility of incuding Planeswalkers.
- An alternate art foil Garruk Wildspeak may be made available to players who purchase the new XBox Live Arcade Duels of the Planeswalkers game. It is beleived that Wizards mail this puppy out to you after registration / proof of purchase.
