ARB Spoiler 10

Crikey ! Boy do we have a post for you today. The Spoiler gods squatted last night and pinched off a huge dumpling of Alara Reborn spoilers - a total of 15 cards exactly from various sources. Typically when I preview these new cards, I like to make homourus or sarcastic comments about the card's abilities, or art but that will have to wait until latter.

Let's go . . .

Bloodbraid Elf, 2RB
Creature - Elf Beserker, Uncommon
Cascade (When you play this spell, remove cards from the top of your library from the game until you reveal a nonland card that costs less. You may play it without paying its mana cost. Put the removed cards on the bottom in a random order.
meh . . . not too bad.

Enigma Sphinx, 4WUB
Artifact Creature - Sphinx, Rare
When Enigma Sphinx is put into your graveyard from play, put it into your library third from the top.
Cascade (When you play this spell, remove cards from the top of your library from the game until your reveal a nonland card that costs less. You may play it without paying its mana cost. Put the removed cards on the bottom in a random order.)
Whoa dude ! I'm gonna work on this one tonight.

Filigree Angel, 5WWU
Artifact Creature - Angel, Rare

When Filigree Angel comes into play, you gain 3 life for each artifact you control.
Esper loves this new Angel - make sure you have a cloud of Thopters or even a Cradle of Vitality for a biggy.

Giant Ambush Beetle, 3{B/G}R
Creature - Insect, Uncommon
When Giant Ambush Beetle comes into play, you may have target creature block it this turn if able.

meh - This Beetle has no juice.

Glory of Warfare, 2RW
Enchantment, Rare
As long as it's your turn, creatures you control get +2/+0.
As long as it's not your turn, creatures you control get +0/+2.
Dang ! This is one sweet card and I can see this getting good play.

Igneous Pouncer, 4BR
Creature - Elemental, Common
Swampcycling 2, mountaincycling 2
Nope - you guys can have all of mine.

Lich Lord of Unx, 1UB
Creature - Zombie Wizard, Rare
{U}{B}, {T}: Put a 1/1 blue and black Zombie Wizard creature token into play.
{U}{U}{B}{B}: Target player loses X life and puts the top X cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard where X is the number of Zombies you control.
Interesting, - I may have to dust off my Death Baron and work on something here.

Lightning Reaver, 3BR
Creature - Zombie Beast, Rare
Fear, haste
Whenever Lightning Reaver deals combat damage to a player, put a charge counter on it.
At the end of your turn, Lightning Reaver deals damage equal to the number of charge counters on it to each opponent.
Very nice - I'm thinking of this card with something like Power of Fire to double-timmy.

Lord of Extinction, 3BG

Creature - Elemental, Mythic Rare
Lord of Extinction's power and toughness are each equal to the number of cards in all graveyards.
This one is a very nice improvement over Tarmo.

Meddling Mage, WU
Creature - Human Wizard, Rare
As Meddling Mage comes into play, name a nonland card.
The named card can't be played.
This is a solid card and a welcome reprint.

Mycoid Shepherd, 1GGW
Creature - Fungus, Rare
Whenever Mycoid Shepherd or another creature you control with power 5 or greater is put into a graveyard from play, you may gain 5 life.
whatever . . .

Qasali Pridemage, GW
Creature - Cat Wizard, Common
1, Sacrifice Qasali Pridemage: Destroy target artifact or enchantment.
This looks like a decent enough 2 drop.

Retaliator Griffin, 1RGW

Creature - Griffin, Rare
Whenever a source an opponent controls deals damage to you, put that many +1/+1 counters on Retaliator Griffin.
Not bad at all - this may see play.

Sen Triplets, 2WUB
Artifact Creature - Human Wizard, Rare
At the beginning of your upkeep, choose target opponent. This turn, that player can't play spells or activated abilities and plays with his or her hand revealed. You can play cards from that player's hand this turn.

Solid disruption and this may be a very decent strategic card to have in you sideboard.

Uril, the Miststalker, 2RGW
Legendary Creature - Beast, Mythic Rare
Uril, the Miststalker can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.
Uril gets +2/+2 for each Aura attached to it.
This guy reminds me of Phil who works in my office (he does a lot of cube 'lurking') - I shall henceforth simply call this card Phil.

A lot of really fun and interesting cards here. I personally can't wait for Glory of Warfare (Jund Token FTW!) and Lich Lord of Unx. Both sound like they could make for some crazy situations. :-)
