Theros Spoilers 9-09

Happy Monday MTG peeps,

Although we've been keeping up with the latest Magic: the Gathering spoilers and previews for Theros over on our sister site, MTG Realm on Tumblr over the weekend, we most definitely need to catch up here on the main site.  Speaking of the weekend, with was certainly packed with MTG goodness and most of it spent at OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario - First on Friday, we went to Friday Night Magic, followed by the wildly successfully Magic Celebration on Saturday and on Sunday, we had some nice quiet down time with some tea and did some deck-brewing.

Anywhoos - let's get to some of those new cards now.  Remember to check out our Theros Spoiler List which we faithfully keep up to date and don't forget develop your wish list for Theros pre-orders and get them in to MTG Mint Card.

Spear of Heliod, 1ww
Legendary Enchantment Artifact, Rare
Creatures you control get +1/+1.
1{W}{W}, {T}: Destroy target creature that dealt damage to you this turn.

Hythonia the Cruel, 4bb
Legendary Creature — Gorgon, Mythic Rare
6{B}{B}: Monstrosity 3. (If this creature isn't monstrous, put three +1/+1 counters on it and it becomes monstrous.)
When Hythonia the Cruel becomes monstrous, destroy all non-Gorgon creatures.

Hero's Downfall, 1bb
Instant, Rare
Destroy target creature or planeswalker.

Heliod's spear looks like a reasonable replacement for Honor of the Pure - we haven't had an anthem effect like this for a bit now.  The Avenging Arrow effect is also pretty sweet - definitely will want to game with this. 

Hythonia is what cruel Gorgon parents would name their kid.  Again, this seems a bit overcosted but considering the monstrous effect of conditional board wipe, perhaps not quite jank if the standard game slows down as is expected. 

We rather like the upgraded Murder here on Hero's Downfall which can now not only nerf a critter but a planeswalker as well.


Ashen Rider, 4wwbb
Creature — Archon, Mythic Rare
When Ashen Rider enters the battlefield or dies, exile target permanent.

Psychic Intrusion, 3ub
Sorcery, Rare
Target opponent reveals his or her hand. You choose a nonland card from that player's graveyard or hand and exile it. You may cast that card for as long as it remains exiled, and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color to cast that spell.

Boon Satyr, 1gg
Enchantment Creature — Satyr, Rare
Bestow 3{G}{G} (If you cast this spell for its bestow cost, it's an Aura spell with enchant creature. It becomes a creature again if it's not attached to a creature.)
Enchanted creature gets +4/+2.

Ashen Rider is a female Archon which is kinda cool and that flavor text is sweet.  Otherwise, this appears janky unless we get a hold of a blink effect or something with discard / graveyard tech.

Not sure exactly what kind of hand your opponent may have by turn four or five so there may not be very much on the menu here. 

The Satyr looks interesting and the bestow cost not that bad.

Steam Augury, 2ur
Instant, Rare
Reveal the top five cards of your library and separate them into two piles. An opponent chooses one of those piles. Put that pile into your hand and the other into your graveyard.

This leaked card may or may not be the real deal - look for official confirmation latter on the mothersite
