Zendikar Spoilers 9-15

Three new Zendikar spoilers / previews directly from our evil overlords at Wizards of the Coast. Three questionable spoilers from Russia with love and also on the offering plate today is some reprint hints from WoTC minion Aron Forsythe.

Strap in and let's go . . .

Khalni Heart Expedition, 1
Enchantment, Common
Landfall - Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may put a quest counter on Khalni Heart Expedition.
Remove three quest counters from Khalni Heart Expedition and sacrifice it: Search your library for up to two basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

This is a solid common for the new 'Landfall' deck tech and you should expect to see this played soon in casual and budget decks want to key in on a landfall bonus ability.

Lorthos, the Tidemaker, 5
Legendary Creature - Octopus, Mythic Rare
Whenever Lorthos, the Tidemaker attacks, you may pay 8. If you do, tap up to eight permanents. Those permanents don't untap during their controllers' next untap steps.
When Lorthos emerges from his deepwater realm, the tide bows to his will and the coastline cowers in his presence.

Well oh well ! THIS is the mythic rare octopus that MaRo was yattering about. We have to stop the press and say 'flavourful card has flavour'. Dang - and a lot of it. We see what those crazy designers did . . 8 power & toughness, 8 converted mana cost and 8 tapped down permanents . . . get it ? An ocotpus has 8 legs too . . . those WoTC guys are hilarious. Unfortunately this card appears to be a jank rare that will get traded away or collect dust in your trade binder.

Marsh Flats
Land, Rare
, Pay 1 Life, Sacrifice Marsh Flats: Search your library for a Plains or Swamp card and put it onto the battlefield. Then shuffle your library.

Here we have yet another Zendikar enemy fetch land. See previous posts for witty commentary.


Here are the three questionable Zendikar spoilers, all commons, from - take with a grain of salt . . . (sorry no card images). All of these commons are actually rather decent and will likely see inclusion.

Goblin Bushwhacker,

Creature - Goblin Warrior, Common
Kicker -
(You may pay an additional as you cast this spell.)
When Goblin Bushwhacker enters the battlefield, if it was kicked, creatures you control get +1/+0 and gain haste until end of turn.

Steppe Lynx,

Creature - Cat, Common
Landfall - Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, Steppe Lynx gets +2/+2 until end of turn.

Vines of Vastwood,

Instant, Common
Kicker -
(You may pay an additional as you cast this spell)
Target creature can't be the target of spells of abilities your opponents control until end of turn. If Vines of Vastwood was kicked, that creature gets +4/+4 until end of turn.

Now - onto the speculation of Zendikar Reprints . . . apparently we have five as clued by Aaron.

Mr. 'See' on the forums was kind enough to provide a summary >

Known Reprints:
Cancel Harrow

Candidate Reprints for the five:
Demolish Mind Sludge River Boa

Excluded Cards:
Cartographer has specifically been denied (by Aaron Forsyth).
Ravenous Baloth is excluded because of Orb data on mana costs
Magma Burst is excluded because Demolish is red and River Boa is green; if those two are in, Magma Burst would be a second duplicate color. Find a creature alternative to River Boa in black or white, and Magma Burst can potentially replace Mind Sludge.

We will see very soon which ones made reprint.

To wrap up, we leave you two Zendikar images - don't forget
