ARB Spoiler 12

There now stand at 82 spoiled Alara Reborn cards from the set's 145 total. Most of the new spoilers are text. Today, I will address 5 completed spoilers (full card) and perhaps latter this week, I hope to get to Alara Reborn set FAQ's including videos, and review token generators.

Let's go . . .

Naya Sojourners, 2RGW
Creature - Elf Shaman, Common
When you cycle Naya Sojourners or it is put into a graveyard from play, put a +1/+1 counter on target creature
Cycling 2{G}

For 2G one can rapidly slip a +1/+1 counter onto a critter is OK. This will see play in as a limited pick but otherwise smells like jank.

Sanctum Plowbeast, 4WU
Artifact Creature - Beast, Common
Plainscycling 2, islandcycling 2

This thing was the first to get voted off the island . . . thanks for coming out. There is an advantage to have a cycler as it presents strategic options but otherwise this is meh. I rather liked PhyreMynd's idea to have waterslides installed on the Plowbeast for some some recreational shard fun.

Glassdust Hulk, 3WU
Artifact Creature - Golem, Common
Whenever another artifact comes into play under your control, Glassdust Hulk gets +1/+1 until end of turn and is unblockable this turn.
Cycling {W/U}

Perhaps a nice card for the 5 drop spot in your artifact deck and you always have the choice to cycle it. Other than that, I think this one does not get asked to dance.

Necromancer's Covenant, 3WBB
Enchantment, Rare
When Necromancer's Covenant comes into play, remove all creature cards in target player's graveyard from the game, then put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token into play for each card removed this way.
Zombies you control have lifelink.

Dang ! There may finally be a Zombie deck available in this block. I'm glad I didn't flush my Death Baron's away. Just imagine . . . a hoard of brain-hungry Zombies - they are all 3/3, have deathtouch AND lifelink - this is sooo messed up and so very kewl !

Behemoth Sledge, 1GW
Artifact - Equipment, Uncommon
Equipped creature gets +2/+2 and has lifelink and trample.
Equip 3

This card rocks my Shards and is an improvement over Loxodon Warhammer. Hello new tech hammer.

Behemoth Sledge has sexy points written all over it! I just traded for a Warhammer (which is a staple card to have anyway) but I'm looking forward to get a few of the sledges while they are T2. FTW!

awesome! the sledge is awesome! and necromancer's covenant is going to make zombie decks very very nasty.
