Hello again Magic: the Gathering fans,
We took a moment earlier today to reflect upon the terrorist attacks in 9/11/2001 which claimed the lives of almost 3,000 individuals including 24 Canadians. Although we were not personally affected, we did have a several agonizing long hours trying to get a hold of our brother who worked near the Towers and can only imagine the pain of loss for others.
Righto - back to the new Theros cards out today -
Anger / Fury of the Gods (name?), 1rr
Anger of the Gods deals 3 damage to each creature. If a creature dealt damage this way would die this turn, exile it instead.
French MTG site Magictrade preview - Awesome burn spell. Voice of Resurgence, and a bunch of other cards just took a hit to the junk. This upgraded Slagstorm is sure to be a hit and the perfect answer to boardwipe token builds.
~Agent of the Fates, 1bb
Creature — Human Assassin, Rare
Heroic — Whenever you cast a spell that targets Agent of the Fates, each opponent sacrifices a creature.
Starcity Games preview - Amazing card here and we can't wait to use this with combat step shenanigans. We're specifically thinking about nerfing a single blocker by hitting this assassin with a Swift Justice or something similar.
~Fabled Hero, 1ww
Creature — Human Soldier, Rare
Heroic — Whenever you cast a spell that targets Fabled Hero, put a +1/+1 counter on Fabled Hero.
ManaDeprived preview - This could be Mirran Crusader's younger 'bro. We're sorta getting anxious about the number of heroic enablers to date but having said that, we're already predisposed to consider the Fabled Hero here perfect for a hook up with Madcap Skills.
Next up - a quick round-up of other new Theros spoilers 'n' previews around the interweb including that very lovely Chimera from the Japanese website Happy MTG, the full Ordeal Cycle from the mothersite and others -
Spellheart Chimera, 1ur
Creature — Chimera, Uncommon
Spellheart Chimera's power is equal to the number of instant and sorcery cards in your graveyard.
Nessian Courser, 2g
Creature — Centaur Warrior, Common
