Happy Saturday MTG peeps,
Welcome to a very rare weekend post to the MTG Realm blog. We are posting today as we have some fresh new Mirrodin Besieged spoilers previewed today at the 2010 Magic the Gathering World Championships in Chiba, Japan.
These two very slick Crusaders (art already spoiled at the beginning of November via a Pro-Tour Paris flyer) are sure to make players salivate to get these into their game soon.
Here we have Richard and MaRo displaying the two Japanese versions. Below are the close-up courtesy of the very awesome Evan Erwin . . .
Mirran Crusader, 1
Creature - Human Knight, MBS Rare

flavour text : A symbol of what Mirrodin once was and hope for what it will be again.
Phyrexian Crusader, 1
Creature - Zombie Knight, MBS Rare
First strike, protection from read and from white.
Infect (This creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)
(50/155, illustrated by Eric Deschamps)
Also of note, the customary 2010 Magic the Gathering 'Christmas Card' was just spoiled as well. Say hello to the very witty and waggish 'Snow Mercy' . . .
Yep - that's a whole lot of snow globe shake, rattle and roll - great job Wizards ! Chances are normal humans like us will never see this as WoTC typically provides it to members of their corporate family at year's end.
