Happy Monday MTG peeps,
We have just posted the New Phyrexia text spoiler page HERE which we will endeavour to continually update as spoilers and previews become available. Speaking of which, there were 8 new cards previewed today on the mothership and we suggest you make clicks over there to review the new cards as well as a run down of new mechanics and themes to be found in this, the latest Magic the Gathering set.
The WoTC article today provided a high level view (sneak peak) of what one would expect in the New Phyrexia FAQ document without going into specific card descriptions. You may read up on Colored Artifacts, the Golem mini-tribal theme, Infect and "Poisoned", Living Weapon, Metalcraft, Phyrexian Mana, and Proliferate.
The following new cards were previewed to provide examples . . .
Dispatch (an instant which taps down a creature or exiles with metalcraft), and a 5/5 Creature Horror (with infect and a 'poisoned' condition).
Grim Affliciton (a black instant with proliferate and negative counters), and a 4/2 red-coloured Artifact creature.
Mutagenic Growth, a fairly traditional green pump spell with phyrexian mana, and Maul Splicer - a green creature spell providing tokens thought to be part of a 'splicer' cycle.
Cyclesclicer, another living weapon artifact equipment and Trespassing Souteater, a 2/2 artifact creature with an activated unblockable ability.
Lastly, some news from our friends at MTG Mint Card - New Phyrexia assorted card lots are now available for pre-order. We have for some time been ordering the card lots as it is an fast, efficient and inexpensive way to get your collection together and start playing with all the new awesomeness.
