BNG Spoilers 1-16

Happy Thursday MTG peeps,

As we continue with Magic: the Gathering previews for the latest set 'Born of the Gods', we want to take a moment out to summarise the 'gods' of BNG previewed so far;

• Ephara, God of the Polis - Monday's preview
• Karametra, God of Harvests - Today's preview card
• Kiora, the Crashing Wave - the 'Christmas' preview
• Mogis, God of Slaughter - Monday's preview
Phenax, God of Deceit - yet to be previewed
• Xenagos, God of Revels - Wednesday's preview

Looking forward to getting these into a Commander list and most definitely want to try a standard list with Mogis and the new Xenagod.  Anywhoos - here's a looky-loo at today's offerings from the mothersite and around the interwebs -

Karametra, God of Harvests, 3gw
Legendary Enchantment Creature — God, Mythic Rare
As long as your devotion to green and white is less than seven, Karametra isn't a creature.
Whenever you cast a creature spell, you may search your library for a Forest or Plains card, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.
Illus. Eric Deschamps #148/165    6/7

Mothersite preview.  Straight into our Commander stack.  A bit too late in the standard format game to contribute to a mana ramp strategy.

Fate Unraveler, 3b
Enchantment Creature - Hag, Rare
Whenever an opponent draws a card, Fate Unreveler deals 1 damage to that player.
Illus. David Palumbo    3/4

Spanish site preview.  Know what?  Master of Cruelties (Dragon's Maze) says hi and wants to be friends.

Herald of Torment, 1bb
Enchantment Creature — Demon, Rare
Bestow 3{B}{B}
At the beginning of your upkeep, you lose 1 life.
Enchanted creature gets +3/+3 and has flying.

UPDATE - We now have the full card from - Limited fans are excited, standard - not so much.
Other Born of the Gods previews today include Bile Blight, Searing Blood, Thassa's Rebuff, and Unravel the Aether.

Also - a late day preview at Magic Judge Rules blog - Archetype of Courage. 

Players gaming with white weenie lists are likely on the edge of their seat with this one.  This is a very nice uncommon but since we're greedy, we would have hoped for a 3/2 but we'll admit that we'll still put this guy in - now to find that Ethereal Armor . . .

um, Hi, i follow your tumblr and u recently posted a picture describing an Archetype of Courage and Ethereal Armor combo and stated it'd become a 4/4 first strike, accented with a surprised cat face. I think it only becomes a 3/3, not 4/4 because ethereal armor gives +1 for each enchantment,then gives first strike, rather than giving +1 for each enchantment AND for each creature with first strike. maybe theres a joke im missing, but i wanted to msg to let you know

Hey there ! Since there are 2 enchantments out, etheral will pump for 2 - Archetype of Courage AND itself.
