Zendikar Spoilers 9-17

~
Hey there, welcome to yet another post to the MTG Realm Blog. Today we have two more Magic the Gathering Zendikar previews for you spoiler nutters out there in internet-land. We will cover off the two WoTC previews and move off as to what MPRs one can expect in the mail from Wizards latter this month.

Let's go . .

Lotus Cobra, 1g
Creature - Snake, Mythic Rare
Landfall - Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may add one mana of any color to your mana pool.
2/1

w0w ! - Holy crap thats a nice card. Expect to pay about $20 to $25 for a single (at least up here in Canada-Land). Not sure why they needed this card to be a Mythic Rare though (?) - Wizards wants the secondary (singles) market to make money too I guess. Now - about that flavour text "Its scales contain the essence of thousands of lotus blooms" . . . like I said before - someone at WoTC design takes waaay too much cold medicine.

*Edit: A recent tweet from Sam Stoddard on the Lotus Cobra price - "note to self: get on eBay faster next time. Buy it NOWs for Lotus Cobra started at 17.99, went to 29.99, to 44.99 to 99.99 overnight." - DANG! - This is Madness !

Anywho, the mono-green deck-heads are now dreaming of beautiful ramp with Lotus Cobra, Harrow, Rampant Growth, Khalni Heart Expedition, Fertile Ground, Trace of Abundance, Llanowar Elves, whatever (!) to rapidly push out HUGE monsters onto the board . . . imagine a Protean Hydra coming out like this . . .

Turn 1 : Forest, Llanowar Elves
Turn 2 : Forest, Lotus Cobra
Turn 3 : Fetchland, pop the fetchland, play Harrow, and drop a monstrous Protean Hydra.
(someone grab a calculator and figure out how big the Hydra is gonna be - I have not had my coffee yet and am functioning on only a handful of brain cells)

Pyromancer Ascension, 1
Enchantment, Rare
Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell that has the same name as a card in your graveyard, you may put a quest counter on Pyromancer Ascension.
Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell while Pyromancer Ascension has two or more quest counters on it, you may copy that spell. You may choose new targets for that copy.

Dang - this one is good too. Burn baby burn! This enchantment is begging to abused and buh-roken. It will be no big surprise to me to hear of someone opening up a can of red burn and killing an opponent in like four turns (or less).

UPDATE: There are also four unconfirmed / rumoured cards just out - like we said - could be fake but so far looks good . .

Burst Lightning,

Instant
Kicker 4
Deal 2 damage to target creature or player, If it was Kicked deal 4 damage instead

Into the Roil, 1

Instant, Common
Kicker 1{U} (You may pay an additional 1{U} as you cast this spell.)
Return target nonland permanent to its owner's hand. If Into the Roil was kicked, draw a card.

Rite of Replication, 2

Sorcery, Rare
Kicker 5 (You may pay an additional 5 as you cast this spell.)
Put a token that is a copy of target creature onto the battlefield. If Rite Of Replication was kicked, instead put five of those tokens onto the battlefield.

Hellkite Charger, 4

Creature Dragon
Flying Haste
5/5
When it attackes you may pay 5RR if you do untap all creatures you control and get another attack step.

We also have news of the new Mgic Players Reward mailout. If you signed up for the program with your DCI number, you can expect Sign in Blood, Cancel, and a freak'n Foil Lightning Bolt !



Here are the details - For every 20 sanctioned events you participat in, you qualify for one foil textless card. Also, for every 5 sanctioned events you participate in, you also qualify for one "token set," which consists of two textless cards (one in the current rotation and one old one). This reward stacks with the 20 events mentioned previously. So the long and short of it is if you play in 20 events, expect to get four token sets and one foil in the mail courtesy of Wizards. For more information on this program, click HERE.

Does want the Textless Sign in Blood. That makes me happy. You know something I want to see reprinted in Zendikar? Vampiric Tutor... Its the card Mono-black Aggro needs to be seen as a threat. That is my input and I am sticking to it.

the vision of getting an 8/8 beater 3rd turn seems worth that 100 dollar madness :D
