Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,
Today brings more Magic the Gathering spoilers from the mothersite as well as around the inter-webs. Our Magic 2013 spoiler list is now at 120 / 249 cards and at the rate we're going, we would not be surprised that contributions of official previews and unofficial spoilers would bring us the full set ahead of it's typical completion. Anywhoos - here's today's installment with some cards which should make gamers and collectors rather happy.
Sorcery, Mythic Rare
Exile all permanents. Exile all cards from all hands and all graveyards. Each player's life total becomes 1.
Epic red sorcery is epic . . . and expensive to cast.
Elderscale Wurm, 4ggg
Creature - Wurm, Mythic Rare
When Elderscale Wurm enters the battlefield, if your life total is less than 7, your life total becomes 7.
As long as you have 7 or more life, damage that would reduce your life total to less than 7 reduces it to 7 instead.
Sherlock says 'seven seems to be a theme here'.
Serra Avatar, 4www
Creature - Avatar, Mythic Rare
Serra Avatar's power and toughness are equal to you life total.
When Serra Avatar is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owners library.
We sooo want to ramp into this card a turn or two early with a life-gain build. There is an original art here as well as a mysterious alternate art.
We here at MTG Realm love flavour in sets and are rather happy that this Magic the Gathering Core Set has provided legendary creatures. Here's a bit about Talrand, the legendary Merfolk creature (apparently from Shandalar.
"After Talrand conquered the depths of Shandalar, his ambitions drove him skyward, joined by servants whose drive and curiosity equaled his own."
"The seas are vast, but the skies are even more so. Why be content with one kingdom when I can rule them both?"
Shandalar is a rogue plane, drifting through the multiverse instead of retaining a steady position or course. It is a relatively small plane and incredibly rich in mana. The magical energy is so prevalent, that it all is sentient, and the common people use minor spells as an everyday convenience.
