AVR Spoiler 7

Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

Another crop of Avacyn Restored spoilers and previews for your hungry eyes today.  Some non-rare / mythic rare Magic the Gathering cards also previewed (we'll get to them all we promise) are Thraben Stalwart, Human Frailty, and Defy Death.  There is also indications from good authority to expect reprints for Thunderbolt and Barter in Blood.  Remember, as always, everything we post is hearsay / rumour until officially previewed by Wizards of the Coast on the mothersite.

Cavern of Souls (spelling?)

Land, Rare
As 'Cavern of Souls' enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.
{T}: Add 1 to your mana pool.
{T}: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool. Spend this mana only to cast creature spells of the chosen creature type. If this mana is spent on a spell, that spell can't be countered by spells or abilities.

This Spanish-language card, Caverna de animas, cropped up on our buddy's JM site, Magic Madrid and we expect this to see play in tribal type decks from now on.

Somberwald Sage, 2g

Creature - Human Druid, Rare
{T}: Add three mana of any one color to your mana pool. Spend this mana only to cast creature spells.

Another solid mana producer - if you see this hit the game table across from you, kill it as soon as possible as once it starts to churn mana out, you'll be walking to the finish line uphill.

Demonic Rising, 3bb

Enchantment, Rare
At the beginning of your end step, if you control exactly one creature, put a 5/5 black Demon creature token with flying onto the battlefield.

We're not sure exactly how many times this thing may go off as most creatures with flash that could be dropped at the end of your opponent's turn is in white and this enchantment pushes a black build.  You may also expect to get roughed up a bit by not having any blockers if you decide to grind it out the hard way.  Don't expect your opponent to help you in your efforts to maintain exactly one critter on board.

Angel of Glory's Rise, 5ww

Creature - Angel, Rare
When Angel of Glory's Rise enters the battlefield, exile all Zombies, then return all Human creature cards from your graveyard to the battlefield.

The flavour on this card is amazing.  This may have a chance to see some action but only in the odd sideboard.
Entreat the Angels, xxwww
Sorcery, Mythic Rare
Put X 4/4 white Angel creature tokens with flying onto the battlefield.
Miracle {X}{W}{W}

Nice card but for being a mythic rare, we are of the thought that this should have been mana-costed slightly less.  This will be as popular to play as White Sun's Zenith or Gelatinous Genesis.  Being able to take adavantage of the Miracle mechanic on this would be akin to winning the lottery and we salut you in advance if this happens.

Our friends over at MTG Mint Card are working hard to get the latest Avacyn Restored singles posted up and priced for pre-order.  Check 'em out!
