Worldwake Spoiler 5

~
Today we have some Worldwake Booster back images and have also now arrived in the final stretch of the slow roll Worldwake Planeswalker spoiler. Jace, the Mind Sculptor has been dissected into 8 puzzle pieces and fired off to remote Game stores (hosting Wizards Play Network events). Today, Wizards revealed the final two co-ordinates . . .

Worldwake Planeswalker Chase
No. 7 : 43.659293 Lat, -79.382175 Long
No. 8 : 33.976243 Lat, -117.464489 Long

No. 7 : 401 Games, Toronto, Canada - just about an hour south of me !
No. 8 : GMI Games and Collectibles - Riverside, CA, USA


With the Winter Olypic flame touring through downtown Toronto, our new local hero, Bitey, was able to head into 401 games and snap a pic of the card piece just shortly after 11:00 am today . . . Many thanks to Bitey. Earlier, I had called Barclay Jewlers next door, and altough he was very polite, he really was unsympathetic and unhelpful in my mission to get someone over to pick up the Jace piece. Dang ! A zero ability - that is not only new but insanely broken ! This basically gives you a free Brainstorm each turn.

Late Update - Around 7:00 PM or so (eastern standard time), an unknown fella by the name of Justin Phillips, just 15 minutes down the road from the store walked in to claim the final Jace piece. Thanks to Justin and GMI Games for getting this all together - thankfully it was not the positive / negative ability side as this would have certainly felt like the longest day of MTG spoiler, like evar.

What do we have (many thanks to Trick over at ManaNation for his photoshoppery skills to piece this blue Frankenstien together) . . . why - one EPIC Planeswalker - that's what -

Jace, the Mind Sculptor - 2
Planeswalker - Jace

[+2] : Look at the top card of target player's library. You may put that card on the bottom of that player's library.

[0] : Draw three cards, then put two cards from your hand on top of your library in any order.

[-1] : Return target creature to its owner's hand.

[-12] : Exile all cards from target player's library, then that player shuffles his or her hand into his or her library.

{3}

w0w ! - just awesome. We think the folks who had been complaining about the decay of blue are most likely smiling now . . . if not, there really is no pleasing them we guess. Expect this card to start off selling for about $40, and who knows after that.

Now - onto the next Worlwake spoiler goodness . . . Worldwake Booster Pack images.

We have a trio of booster pack images from Wizards today. For the first pack we have an unknown Angel which was recently featured on some Ultra-Pro product. The second pack we have the new Worldwake hotness, Jace, the Mind Sculptor. As for the third pack, this features a Vampire - this art was provided on the back of some token cards earlier and it appears she is accompanied by a Mindless Null.

Stay tuned for more Worldwake awesomness.

So his -12.. does this mean the cards in hand replace the Library?

i doubt it's gonna be 40 bucks. i hope not. i'm a blue player. wld be very painful on my wallet.

That is what basically happens. Library is Exiled. Hand becomes library. If they dont have anything good in their hand, they are screwed. If they got some bombs they can play that you know of, Mirror of Fate would be an excellent choice to go with the new Jace -12 Ability. Looks great, but I do not think that anyone in their right mind will allow the -12 to go off.

these plainswalkers are just getting broken... way OP...is this where magic is headed?

The planeswalkers are not broken when you stop and think about it. Planeswalkeres stand alone a weak and can be killed off easily. However, in combination with other cards they become very powerful and hard to deal with. So, if your soul purpose of a deck is to make a planeswalker go off, then fine make your deck do that, and it can go up there with all the other decks that are pretty much broken. Such as Slivers and old style Elf decks.
