New Phyrexia PreRelease Promo

Happy Thursday MTG peeps,

Following up on yesterday's massive New Phyrexia card art post, we now have for you what is rumoured to be the PreRelease Promo card. Again, we note to you that all should be considered hearsay until officially previewed on the Wizards of the Coast mothership.

Posted to the forums, this appears to be snapped from a pre-release poster somewhere in the land of the rising sun. Translations from Japanese should be considered imprecise.

Sheoldred, Whispering One 5

Legendary Creature - Praetor (?)

At the beginning of your upkeep, return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield.

At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, that player sacrifices a creature.


We're not sure if one would want to find this is the rare slot during a limited sealed pool event or even would want to considered this for inclusion in a standard deck - but - this card does hold interest for the Commander (EDH) players.

Once in play, this legendary Praetor promises to mess up your opponent's game in a significant way. Essentially, the creature race will be won by the card's controller with an additional creature recurred from your graveyard while and additional creature on your opponent's side of the game table will take a dirt nap. Coupled with Bonehoard (equipment where creature gets +X/+X, where X is the number of creature cards in all graveyards) seems good. Gruesome Encore allows another kick at your opponent with their dead creature as well as Liliana Vess' -8 ability to puke everything out of their graveyard right back onto your side of the table for the wpic win.

We think it a safe bet to expect a full cycle of all the legendary Praetors - Elesh Norn (White), Jin-Gitaxias, Augur of the Core (Blue), Sheoldred, Whispering One (Black), Urabrask the Hidden (Red) and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (Green).

Remember to mark your calanders for the upcoming New Phyrexia tournament events . .
