MTG Realm Worldwake Spoilers

Zendikar NewsFlash ! :
Expeditionary Houses in chaos as Tazeem's last reliable landmark walks away. Next up in the program, chef Frek tackles Goblin kolya fruit salad.

Happy Friday Everyone - Not only is it Friday Night Magic this evening, but today we also finally (after some very long and agonizing days we might add) get to unveil some very cool Worldwake spoilers provided to us by the good folks at Wizards. Having stated this, do not worry about us colluding with WoTC to pump the hype on this set, MTG Realm will still call chaff when we see it.

Let's hit it . . .

Quest for the Nihil Stone,
Enchantment, Rare
Whenever an opponent discards a card, you may put a quest counter on Quest for the Nihil Stone.
At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, if that player has no cards in hand and Quest for the Nihil Stone has two or more quest counters on it, you may have that player lose 5 life.
Mike Bierek, 64/145

Uhhh . . . DANG ! We think that this has Wizard's evil Worldwake Design Team Leader Ken Nagle written all over it. If you don't get a Naturalize or a Kor Sanctifiers out quick to take care of this big threat, it will seriously hurt you. We love this card and can see it being played with all of your fav discard spells like Bala Ged Thief or Mind Sludge.

Canopy Cover, 1
Enchantment - Aura, Uncommon
Enchant creature
Enchanted creature can't be blocked except by creatures with flying or reach.
Echanted creature can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.
Igor Kieryluk, 98/145

Right . . . for two mana, you can get one heck of a slippery criiter. Not only able to evade on the ground but also your oppenent's spells / abilities. Sign us up - we're getting a deckset. Currently one of our fave evasion cards in Zendikar is Vines of Vastwood - this card is vastly superior. We suggest you pair this little gem with Rampaging Baloths or even Terra Stomper to go big 'n' green on your opponent's gluteus maximus.

Dread Statuary
Land, Uncommon
: Add 1 to your mana pool.
4 : Dread Statuary becomes a 4/2 Golem artifact creature until end of turn. It's still a land.
Jason A. Engle, 135/145

We personally like non-basic lands which can grow legs, or wings for that matter. We LOVE the flavor text on this card (The last reliable landmark in Tazeem just walked away). As for the playability of this, we would rather choose Gargoyle Castle over this. Perhaps this card may be yet salvaged by your imagination - suggestions are more than welcome.

Wind Zendikon,
Enchantment - Aura, Common
Enchant land
Enchanted land is a 2/2 blue Elemental creature with flying. It's still a land.
When enchanted land is put into a graveyard, return that card to its owner's hand.
Vincent Proce, 46/145

It's a cloud! No - it's a big rock - maybe a cloud rock! Nope - It's a land that not only tap for mana, it can delivery a beating or provide a much needed blocker. Not bad at all. For a one drop, we say it's good. This is also very welcome in blue and of course those annoying decks featuring Goblin Ruinblaster or Lavaball Trap.

Join the Ranks, 3
Instant, Common
Put two 1/1 white Soldier Ally creature tokens onto the battlefield.
Kekai Kotaki, 9/145

We love the art that Kekai does. He is a relative newcomer to the world of MTG cards but has made a big splash (think Lorthos, the Tidemaker - get it ? - 'splash' - dammit! nobody gets us). Anywhoos - two 1/1 critters for a cmc of 4 is not that big of a whoop BUT drop this when you have a Captain of the Watch out or some other Ally synergies, then you're cooking with gas.

Going to a Worldwake Prerelease at your local gamestore to experience the newest MTG set a week before it goes on sale is pretty sweet. Even better is going to a large regional Pre-Release event - hundreds of players, Magic the Gathering artists, and of course playing the game - Sealed deck, Two-Headed Giant, Booster Drafts, and IntroPack Open Dueling. On top of that you get that foil promo Comet Storm. All that a bag 'o' chips we think.
