Conflux Spoiler 25

Happy Saturday evening everyone. I did get invites for all the hottest parties in town but decided to stay home and provide you, the hungry blog-reader with more Conflux spoilers. Tonight, I've scrapped the internet and have two rares and six uncommons for your careful evaluation.

It appears that Ron Vitale over at 'The Magic Sock', a popular MTG podcast show got another card (Knight of the Reliquary) to preview from WoTC. He was also provided the art spoiler for Nicol Bolas back in December. I'm rather envious there Ron . . .

Knight of the Reliquary, 1GW
Creature - Human Knight Rare
Knight of the Reliquary gets +1/+1 for each land card in your graveyard.
Tap : Sacrifice a Forest or Plains: Search your library for a land card, put it into play, then shuffle your library.

You may have noticed that the card did not say 'search your deck for a BASIC land card . . '. This card is total win and will find a lot of use. The sugar on top of this is that the Knight gets tossed +1/+1 counter for the land-sac. I envision some funky deck piloted by Countryside Crusher at the helm and Knight of the Reliquary in the passenger seat.

Font of Mythos, 4
Artifact, Rare
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player draws an additional two cards.

I know what you are thinking . . . just how lovely this would be in your deck with its new best friend Kederekt Parasite (that 1/1 critter that pains your opponent for one IF you have a red permanent and IF your opponent draws 3 cards. Come-on ! - I have a better chance of scoring a date with Kate Beckinsale but I guess the Johnny in me has to work on this a bit more.

Scarland Thrinax, BRG
Creature - Lizard, Uncommon
Sacrifice a creature: Put a +1/+1 counter on Scarland Thrinax.

Your Jund Token deck just called and wants Scarland Thrinax. Mr. 00Shoe on the board called this 'Devour-on-Demand' - very apropos. This preview was provided to the popular Planeswalking with the Proffessors vid-cast. Again, more envy.

Knotvine Mystic, RGW
Creature - Elf Druid?, Uncommon
1, Tap : Add {R}{G}{W} to your mana pool.

Big boost here to the Naya fans. Ever since Shadowmoor, I get rather excited with any card with a tap symbol on it. Johnny is wispering to get a Q to untap and abuse. Not sure if that will happen here but I am sure that someone devious at the local gamming club is going use Knotvine to bring out a huge beater.

Jhessian Balmgiver, 1WU
Creature - Human Cleric?, Uncommon
Tap : Prevent the next 1 damage that would be dealt to target creature or player.
Tap : Target creature is unblockable this turn.

This is a really solid card. I will give it one thumb up for now - it would get two thumbs from me but at 1/1, Balmgiver is too easliy removed unless this critter gets a boost or provided shroud.

Filigree Fracture, 2G
Instant, Uncommon
Destroy target enchantment or artifact.
If that artifact or enchantment's controller controls a black or blue permanent, you may draw a card.

Look out Esper - this is headed your way. This card will also kill Bitterblossom and toss you a card for your trouble.
Spore Burst, 3G
Sorcery, Uncommon
Domain - Put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token into play for each basic land type among lands you control.

Well . . . meh. This can be good but you had better have a lot of different colours on the board.
Controlled Instincts, U
Enchantment - Aura, Uncommon
Enchant red or green creature
Enchanted creature doesn't untap during its controller's untap step.

No comment - other than if you find a good fit for your deck with this one - good for you.
