Happy Saturday MTG peeps,
We've got a slew of unofficial Born of the Gods spoilers incoming. With official previews on the mothersite not starting until after the weekend and the set release not until almost a month off these new spoilers, presumably from a local gaming store in Spain, spoiler nutters have a lot to digest over the weekend.
We have to note to you that these are indeed unofficial and suggest you look no further than Daily MTG for official content. Names and card text may not be final found on English language cards.
Nefarious Burn, 1RRR
Nefarious Bun deals 5 points of damage to target creature or planeswalker. If it is your turn, scry 2.
This is reported to be the 'Buy-a-Box' promo card.
The following are reported to be the Born of the Gods PreRelease Promos. There is to be pre-release packs again with this release with a choice of the five colours.
Silent Sentinel, 5WW
Creature - Archon, Rare
Whenever Silent Sentinel attacks, you may return target enchantment card from your graveyard to the battlefield.
Mediator of the Ideal, 4UU
Creature - Sphinx, Rare
Inspiration - Whenever Mediator of the Ideal untaps, reveal the top card of your library. If its an artifact, creature, or land card you may put it onto the battlefield with a manifestation counter on it. It is an enchantment in addition to its other types.
Devourer of Hope, 5BB
Creature - Demon, Rare
B, Sacrifice another creature: Regenerate Devourer of Hope.
2B, Sacrifice two other creatures: Destroy target creature.
Firestir Dragon, 4RR
Creature - Dragon, Rare
1R: Firestir Dragon deals 1 damage to target creature. That creature can't block this combat. Activate this ability only if Firestir Dragon is attacking.
Wild Devastating Nessian, 4GG
Creature - Hydra, Rare
Tribute 6 (As this creature enters the battlefield, an opponent of your choice may put 6 +1/+1 counter on it.)
When Wild Devastating Nessian enters the battlefield, if the tribute wasn't pay, you may have Wild Devastating Nessian fight another target creature.
WOW - Not too un-similar to the Theros PreRelease cards, these creatures are biggies that can throw a lot a weight in a limited format such as the PreRelease. As for standard, there may not be much interest in running these but we're already thinking perhaps a one or two of some of these as late game finishers. We're rather liking both the new keyword mechanics here 'inspiration' and 'tribute'. In fact, we're thinking of getting a few ramp cards we're missing at MTG Mint Card as new deck ideas are spilling out of our noggin.
