MTG Realm Tumblr Time

~
Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

We've just updated our Magic 2014 core set spoiler list page which now sits at 153 of 249 cards now revealed.  One such card which got our attention is Ajani's Chosen, we don't know why we love janky cards like this but we do know we're definitely getting a few copies from MTG Mint Card for our EDH / Commander Enchantress build as well as a derpy 'n' fun stack for our kitchen table.

Anywhoos - We had wanted to get out a daily post yesterday but got distracted. So here's our Tumblr Tuesday post now presented for you on Wednesday.  This is a collection of MTG randomness from our sister site, MTG Realm on Tumblr.

Magic: the Gathering - Planeswalker Points
Readers may note that I’ve dropped the PWP score card into the margin of my Tumblr MTG Realm page.  I’ve done this as a reminder to myself to get out of my basement lair to my local Friday Night Magic event.  Planeswalker Points has been given a minor facelift by Wizards just recently and you can read about it here.
What is Planeswalker Points?
Planeswalker Points is the program where Magic players earn points by playing in sanctioned Magic events. These points rank you against your friends and Magic players around the world.

Magic: the Gathering - WTF is a Lhurgoyf ??

Lhurgoyf is an all color creature type used for cards that depict large, reptilian creatures, with distinctive elongated limbs and large, toothed mouths. Lhurgoyf are primarily scavengers. They come in a wide variety of shapes depending on their scavenged sustenance of choice.

The first card to bear the creature type was the classical Lhurgoyf in Ice Age. Lhurgoyf’s power is equal to the number of creature cards in all graveyards and its toughness is equal to that number plus 1. Odyssey followed up with a cycle of Lhurgoyfs: these rare creatures’ power and toughness were equal the number of cards of a given related card type to its colour in all graveyards, and each had an ability common to its color. — Cantivore (white, empowered by enchantments, has vigilance), Cognivore (blue, instants, flying), Mortivore (black, creatures, regeneration), Magnivore (red, sorceries, haste) and Terravore (green, lands, trample). Magnivore and Mortivore were reprinted in 9th Edition. The last Lhurgoyfs were printed in Planar Chaos (Detritivore) and Future Sight (Tarmogoyf).

Like its ancestor, the Lhurgoyf, it’s a feared arctic predator from an icy world. Terisiare’s Ice Age is over, so it’s unknown whether Tarmogoyf hails from a possible future Dominaria in which the ice returns, or from some other far-flung world blanketed in tundra.

The tarmogoyf is an extremely hungry beast. It doesn’t just feed on people—although the skulls in its art indicate it’s pretty fond of that (Hans and Saffi, beware!). It also devours other types of mystic energy, becoming stronger and stronger as it feeds. Its name derives from “tarmo,” which means “energy” in Finnish (following the Ice Age tradition of using Scandinavian-sounding words in card names). The more types of energies it consumes, the more powerful the tarmogoyf becomes.
