Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,
Today is a day of days. We were not expecting very much in the way of official previews (as part of the Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013) and certainly not any unofficial spoilers. Late yesterday however, a massive dump of a large number of cards for the upcoming Magic the Gathering set, Magic 2013 ('M13'), was anonymously provided to the forum mods at MTG-Sally. Some 30 or so reprints and 25 new cards were provided by this source including some images to provide credence to it's authenticity. We remind the MTG Realm readers again to treat all posted here as rumour until officially released on the mothersite.
We suspect that perhaps this anonymous source may have been one (of three) individuals who may have purchased one of those prematurely-released Magic the Gathering Deck Builders Toolkit (2012) on eBay. Whereever this may have come from, MTG gamers are rather worked up and excited to get their paws on these new cards and play them. We've started up the Magic 2013 Spoiler List to accomodate this early spoiler so start checking back regularly.
Let's have a look at some select cards -
Crusader of Odric 2W
Creature – Human Soldier, Uncommon
Crusader of Odric’s power and toughness are each equal to the number of creatures you control.
Mind Sculpt 1U
Target opponent puts the top seven cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
Jace’s Phantasm, Uncommon
Creature – Illusion (U)
Jace’s Phantasm gets +4/+4 as long as an opponent has ten or more cards in his or her graveyard.
Destroy target creature.
Search your library for a Plains, Island, Swamp, or Mountain card and put it onto the battlefield tapped. Then shuffle your library.
We are rather excited to see Vampire Nighthawk back in standard constructed again. We're also rather pumped about Jace's Phantasm and are already dreaming up some decklists with this new card.
A reminder . . .
The folks over at MTG Mint Card already have up Planechase 2012 singles for order, so check 'em out.
