M10 Spoiler 11

Hello again folks,
Just another quick update on the Magic 2010 spoilers. For up-to-date (minute by minute) juice, you can check out our buddy Streetz at Magic Deck Vortex or pop over to MTG Sally for the skinny.

Anywho - We are just posting a few odd jobs here which have accompanying artwork - buckle up and lets go.

Earthquake, XR
Sorcery, Rare
Earthquake deals X damage to each creature without flying and each player.

Anytime I see an 'X' in a mana cost (or in the power / toughness department), I take serious notice. Earthquake however does not really float my boat as it were. Banefire rocks and knocks this reb burn poser out of the park.

Goblin Chieftain, 1RR
Creature - Goblin, Rare
Other Goblin creatures you control get +1/+1 and have haste.

I really wish I had a card like this back in my Lorwyn boggart days - that would have been very cool - pumped and hasty goblins - nice! I am currently dusting off my collection for Goblin fatties and dreaming about a deck which includes this very nice card.

Rhox Pikemaster, 2WW
Creature - Rhino Soldier, Uncommon
First strike
Other Soldier creatures you control have first strike.

In this core set edition, the colour White really seems to be doing very well. If, during your pre-release / release, you see another player slinging white cards, chances are, there are some soldiers in the mix. Between Captain of the Watch, Rhox Pikemaster, Elite Vanguard, Palace Guard, and the Veterans (Armorsmith and Swordsmith), the white aggro / soldier deck nearly builds itself here.

Nature's Spiral, 1G
Sorcery, Uncommon
Return target permanent card from your graveyard to your hand. (A permanent card is an artifact, creature, enchantment, land or planeswalker card.)

Never underestimate the usefulness of recursion. Being able to fetch a critter or another spell from the graveyard is good and for only two mana, I would venture 'reasonable'. There are about a half-dozen or so cards which simple 'exile' (remove from game) your fav cards so this may put a damper on fun. Altso, Nature's Spiral really hates Haunting Echoes which promises to be a high pick for black.

Djinn of Wishes, 3UU
Creature - Djinn, Rare
Djinn of Wishes enters the battlefield with three wish counters on it.
2{U}{U}, Remove a wish counter from Djinn of Wishes: Reveal the top card of your library. You may play that card without paying its mana cost. If you don't, exile it.

Totally kewl art, totally kewl name but damn ! This card kinda sucks - unless you find a very specific purpose for this, I don't think this will see much play . . . really - what are the chances of paying 3 and then getting a free fatty (without using a harbinger) ?


Stay tuned for more Magic spoilers, reviews and witless banter here on MTG Realm !

I agree. I'm a little dissapointed with Dijnn, and overall I think blue is left with the shaft in this set.

Perhaps Zendikar will rock blue back into the playables.
