BNG Spoilers 1-15

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

If you guessed more Born of the Gods spoilers 'n' previews today, you'd be correct.  Magic: the Gathering players we've talked to since official preview got underway two days ago are pretty happy about most every new card we've been shown so far.  Make sure you check back for the latest 'n' greatest.  Let's have a look at today's bounty.

Xenagos, God of Revels, 3RG
Legendary Enchantment Creature - God, Mythic Rare

As long as your devotion to red and green is less than seven, Xenagos isn't a creature.
At the beginning of combat on your turn, another target creature you control gains haste and gets +X/+X until end of turn, where X is that creature's power.

As everyone who has watched the Born of the Gods trailer or read our speculative drivel, it comes as no surprise to see Xenagos ascend to godhead.  We think a few players are going to auto-include this in their standard red / green monsters list but we think there are more fans in the Commander / EDH community who are chomping at the bit to drop this monster in as their general.
~Mindreaver, uu
Creature - Human Wizard, Rare
Heroic - Whenever you cast a spell that targets Mindreaver, exile the top three cards of target player's library.
{U}{U}, Sacrifice Mindreaver: Counter target spell with the same name as a card exiled with mindreaver.

Two-drop double-blue heroic wizard that can mill the top three.  This also packs the activated ability for two blue to counter a spell of the same name that was previously exiled.  Interesting but not intended for the tall stack players.

Champion of Stray Souls, 4bb
Creature — Skeleton Warrior, Mythic Rare
3{B}{B}, {T}, Sacrifice X other creatures: Return X target creatures from your graveyard to the battlefield.
5{B}{B}: Put Champion of Stray Souls on top of your library from your graveyard.

Here's an (mana) expensive six drop mythic rare.  It comes along with self recursion and some neat sac 'n' recur abilities.  Someone out there may find a nice home for this in a list but not us.
Here's some new uncommon-rarity 'inspired' cards.  As with all other inspired cards, you will either have to commit to swinging with it or find another spell to tap without have it stumble into harm's way.  All five of the cards in this cycle requires three mana (two colourless and one in its own colour) to generate one or more creature tokens.

God-Favored General - two 1/1 white soldier enchantment creature tokens
Aerie Worshippers - one 2/2 blue bird enchantment creature token with flying
Forlorn Pseudamma - one 2/2 black zombie enchantment creature token
Satyr Nyx-Smith - one 3/1 red elemental enchantment creature token with haste
Pheres-Band Raiders - one 3/3 green centaur enchantment creature token

Other uncommon Born of the Gods previews out today -

Drown in Sorrow - decent card which can potential wipe boards of smaller creatures.

Ephara's Enlightenment - an aura which grants flying and a +1/+1 counter gift.

Ragemonger - a banneret for minotaur spells - GO minitaur tribal!
