Gatecrash Spoilers 16

Happy Thursday MTG peeps,

Thursday evenings here at MTG Realm usually means the opportunity to head out to the local gaming store, OMG! Games to get some EDH / Commander action.  We do have a green / blue Momir Vig, Simic Visionary stack that just can't wait for all those new Gatecrash cards.  Tell us (in the comment linky below) what cards gets you salivating for inclusion in your EDH build.

Anywhoos - Our Gatecrash Spoiler List now counts 115 / 249 with today's installment of new previews on the mothersite and around the internets - Here's the low-down -

EDIT - 5 Late Day additions-

These 4 unofficial Gatecrash spoilers were posted by forum member Dr. Jeebus.  They all look OK, but still defer to the mothersite for the official preview.

Realmwright, u
Creature - Vedalken Wizard, Rare
As Realmwright enters the battlefield, choose a basic land type.
Lands you control are the chosen type in addition to their other types.

Master Biomancer, 2gu
Creature - Elf Wizard, Mythic Rare
Each other creature you control enters the battlefield with anumber of additional +1/+1 counters on it equal to Master Biomancer's power and as a Mutant in addition to its other types.

Sylvan Primordial, 5gg
Creature - Avatar, Rare
When Sylvan Primordial enters the battlefiled, for each opponent, destroy target noncreature permanent that player controls. For each permanent destroyed this way, seach you library for a Forest card and put that card onto the battlefield tappeed. then shuffle your library.

Vizkopa Guildmage, wb
Creature - Human Wizard, Uncommon
1{W}{B}: Target creature gains lifelink until end of turn.
1{W}{B}: Whenever you gain life this turn, each opponent loses that much life.

 This card is official from MaRo's twiiter
Mining Slime, 2G
Sorcery, Uncommon
Put an X/X green Ooze creature onto the battlefield, where X is the greatest power among creatures you control.


Unexpected Results, 2gu
Sorcery, Rare
Shuffle your libary, then reveal the top card. If it's a nonland card, you may cast it without paying it's mana cost. If it's a land card, you may put it onto the battlefield and return Unexpected Results to its owner's hand.

Forbes preview.  Our acquaintance Daniel Tack known for his Examiner and Forbes articles got this Gatecrash preview card.  Not for the faint of heart in a standard build but dang does this look delicious in an EDH / Commander build, especially if such a build included a component of deck manipulation such as Ponder.  Results may vary in ramp decks with a load of expensive spells.

Spark Trooper, 1rrw
Creature - Elemental Soldier, Rare
Trample, lifelink, haste
At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice Spark Trooper.

Mothersite preview.  We do not recall ever seeing an Elemental Soldier before - kewl.  For four mana, we think that this is good value in most formats.  If unblocked, you get a difference of 12 life between you and your opponent - not shabby at all.  We imagine some Battalion shenanigans here with Firefist Striker shutting down a potential blocker with the Trooper landing full damage.


Duskmantle Seer, 2ub
Creature - Vampire Wizard, Mythic Rare
At the beginning of your upkeep, each player reveals the top card of his or her library, loses life equal to that card's converted mana cost, then puts it into his or her hand.

Mothersite preview.  Here's a nod towards 'Bob' (Dark Confidant) which was printed in Ravnica: City of Guilds.  Dismissed from standard for the moment.  In a casual format, unless you construct your build very carefully, you'll likely die rather tragically.  We suggest you start your list with Sensei's Divining Top and Jace the Mind Sculptor to side-step unnecessary loss of life while retaining the potential benefits offered by this card.

Gruul Ragebeast, 5rg
Creature - Beast, Rare
Whenever Gruul Ragebeast or another creature enters the battlefield under your control, that creature fights target creature an opponent controls.

Mothersite Card Gallery.  Much too slow for standard we think.  For EDH / Commander, we would love to see this played followed up with a Hornet Queen which should be good to nerf five of their creatures.

Ponder dont works in Unexpected Results because you have to shuffle your library first.
