Happy Friday MTG peeps,
It is the last day of week one of the Dark Ascension previews and although we are just under 40 of the 158 cards spoiled and previewed, we are almost feeling spoiler overload (we did say 'almost'). Make sure you check in frequently to our constantly updated Dark Ascension Spoiler List as we head through the weekend and into week two of previews.
Let's get to today's previews now . . .
Fiend of the Shadows, 3
Creature - Vampire Wizard, Rare
Whenever Fiend of the Shadows deals combat damage to a player, that player exiles a card from his or her hand. You may play that card for as long as it remains exiled.
Sacrifice a Human: Regenerate Fiend of the Shadows.
This one comes from Robot Viking and it features another one of those human sacs. Given the double black on Fiend, we hope there are some human token generators in this colour.
Huntmaster of the Fells, 2
Creature - Human Werewolf, Mythic Rare
Whenever this creature enters the battlefield or transforms into Huntmaster of the Fells, put a 2/2 green wolf token onto the battlefield and you gain 2 life.
At the beginning of each upkeep, if no spells were cast last turn, transform Huntmaster of the Fells.
Ravager of the Fells
Creature - Werewolf
Whenever this creature transforms into Ravager of the Fells, it deals 2 damage to target opponent and 2 damage to up to one target creature that opponent controls.
At the beginning of each upkeep, if a player cast two or more spells last turn, transform Ravager of the Fells.
We are really loving this card. Four mana gives you a 2/2 body as well as another 2/2 body with the wolf token. Tell 'em what else Johnny - order now and we will throw in 2 life gain. Sweet. Things get a whole lot better with the transform as you gain a 4/4 trampler, another 2/2 wolf token (when Huntmaster transforms) and you get to shock for 2. We love 2's.
Afflicted Deserter, 3
Creature - Human Warrior Werewolf, Uncommon
At the beginning of each upkeep, if no spells were cast last turn, transform Afflicted Deserter.
Whenever this creature transforms into Werewolf Ransacker, you may destroy target artifact. If that artifact is put into a graveyard this way, Werewolf Ransacker deals 3 damage to that artifact's controller
At the beginning of each upkeep, if a player cast two or more spells last turn, transform Werewolf Ransacker.
Pyreheart Wolf, 2
Creature - Wolf, Uncommon
Whenever Pyreheart attacks, each creature you control can't be blocked this turn except by 2 or more creatures
Not that bad.
We are thinking that this might just shine in limited depending upon which friends it has on the field at the time.
