M14 Spoilers 7-03

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

We are smack dab in the middle to Week One of what is in all likelihood only one week of Magic 2014 official previews.  We have four more cards to discuss today which may have some Magic: the Gathering players happy.  As we're round down to the full reveal, don't forget about planning your pre-orders - we already have a short list of 'gotta have' M14 cards we'll be getting from MTG Mint Card.

In other news, MTG Realm will hope be at the Friday Night Magic event at L.A. Mood Comics and Games in London, Ontario (350 Richmond Street) this Friday.  Games are under way at 6:30 pm and we'll be bringing along some swag to giveaway.

YO - onto today's cards!
Tidebinder Mage, uu
Creature - Merfolk Wizard, Rare
When Tidebinder Mage enters the battlefield, tap target red or green creature an opponent controls. That creature doesn't untap during its controller's untap step for as long as you control Tidebinder Mage.

A Channel Fireball Preview.  This is John Severin Brassell second art for Wizards of the Coast, the first (and only to date) was that lovely Wind Drake from Dragon's Maze and we hope to see more.  We love us some Merfolks - just not in standard.  We want to call it a hate bear for Modern.  Look for this to be rock'n some slots in Modern sideboards at the very least.
Haunted Plate Mail, 4
Artifact - Equipment, Rare
Equipped creature gets +4/+4.
0: Until end of turn, Haunted Plate Mail becomes a 4/4 Spirit artifact creature that's no longer an Equipment. Activate this ability only if you control no creatures.
Equip 4

Mothersite Preview.  A titch expensive, Weird but cool.  We might even make some room in a sideboard if we see our opponent dropping a lot of board wipe spells - this can be the quick recovery back into the game that we might need.
Blightcaster, 3b
Creature - Human Wizard, Uncommon
Whenever you cast an enchantment spell, you may have target creature get -2/-2 until end of turn.

Mothersite Preview.  Yeah - so here's another enchantment.  Can we all talk about whether Theros will have a major or minor enchantment subtheme going?  As for our Blightcaster buddy here, we don't think this will ever make a splash in standard, modern or even draft.
Manaweft Sliver, 1g
Creature - Sliver, Uncommon
Sliver creatures you control have "{T}: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool."

Mothersite Preview.  We wanted to yatter about this earlier but did not get the chance when it came out two days ago.  We can totally see this rock'n in the right tribal deck but there are just too many superior options right now in standard.
