M13 Spoilers 10

Happy Thursday MTG peeps,

We have some good news and some bad news.  Good news is that we have more M13 spoilers and previews for you again today.  Also - we've updated yesterday's post with another Magic 2013 playmat - for some reason we forgot to post the Mindclaw Shaman mat which is rather odd in that your avverage Viashino (Shaman or not) sort of stands out in a crowd.  Righto - the bad news - we have to step away from the interwebs next week and foresake all electronics / internet connections next week as we are wilderness camping way up in northern Ontario.  Our constant companions will be bears and our bane mosquitos / blackflies the size of chihuahuas.  So please continue on without us for a few days gaming, playing cards, dungeons 'n' dragons, whatever and think of us kindly as we endure nature without even a dial-up connection.

Onto today's gravy -

Spelltwine, 5u

Sorcery, Rare
Exile target instant or sorcery card from your graveyard and target instant or sorcery from your opponent's graveyard. Copy those cards. Cast the copies if able without paying their mana cost. Exile Spelltwine.

Yep - we soooo want to get this into an EDH / Commander deck - should be fun.  If we pull this out in a sealed pool we will likely cry.  No standard format applications we can think of yet.

Mutilate, 2bb

Sorcery, Rare
All creatures get -1/-1 until end of turn for each Swamp you control.

Dang.  Reprinted Torment card.  Old art was epic and the new one is pretty decent as well.   We are immediately thinking of putting this in some Lord of Extinction build with graveyard shennanigans.

Hellion Crucible   

Land, Rare
{T}: Add 1 to your mana pool.
1{R}, {T}: Put a pressure counter on Hellion Crucible.
1{R}, {T}, Remove two pressure counters from Hellion Crucible and sacrifice it: Put a 4/4 red Hellion creature token with haste onto the battlefield.

This might be a parachute for red-deck-win builds for late game.  If you want to put the burner on hight, get a Volt Charge going and other proliferate tech.

Also of note - we suggest you check out today's Magic Arcana on the mothersite.  WoTC Monty had laid out some interesting changes to Magic the Gathering packaging.  Monty gave a variety images as well as teasers on the two M13 Event Decks:

Repeat Performance: Your creatures arrive ready to battle, bringing friends and beneficial effects, then they return to your hand with the help of Roaring Primadox. And when you summon them again... more friends and benefits!

Sweet Revenge: Stoke the flames of the past with the "Sweet Revenge" deck. Just a few key creatures will distract your foes from your constant spellcasting escapades, while Burning Vengeance punishes them again with every flashback spell you cast.

Also available again is Magic the Gathering 'Booster Battle Packs' - this product contains two 20-card, semirandom decks, two 15-card Magic 2013 boosters, a learn-to-play guide and a rules insert.  With a MRSP of only $10, this looks like a good deal.
