Happy Thursday MTG peeps,
The Journey into Nyx spoilers and previews continue today and in this new batch there seems to be cards designed with Commander format in mind. Speaking of Commander, it just so happens to be Commander (aka EDH) this evening at our local gaming store, OMG! Games here in Barrie. Enough yattering for now, let's see the new cardboard -
Kruphix, God of Horizons, 3GU
Legendary Enchantment Creature - God, Mythic Rare
As long as your devotion to green and blue is less than seven, Kruhpix isn't a creature.
You have no maximum hand size.
If unused mana would empty from your mana pool, that mana becomes colorless instead.
This is pretty much useless in most game formats outside of Commander but DANG! - its pretty darn good in the tall stack. There will always be a home for this in EDH. Builds with Omnath, Locus of Mana, Mana Reflection and Helix Pinnacle are kicking around because not only are they fun but occasionally provide epic / legendary wins gamers will talk about for weeks on end. In fact, we should pick up some these singles from MTG Mint Card and tinker with a similar list. The no-max hand is interesting and overall just a bit weird.
Silence the Believers, 2BB
Strive — Silence the Believers costs 2B more to cast for each target beyond the first.
Exile any number of target creatures and all Auras attached to them.
Here's yet another piece of black removal - and perhaps a good thing for standard should the metagame evolve to embrace more Bestow cards (as it is anticipated). We personally love the art from Slawomir Maniak but we fear that some parents of younger players may find it a titch graphic.
Righto - we've been covering off all the rare / mythic rare cards so far, so here's a round-up of recent Journey into Nyx non-rares to keep up to date with.
Sightless Brawler - not a bad pump for this bestow card.
Interpret the Signs - sweet card draw, limited to Commander.
Mogis's Warhound - pure red aggro baby.
Spirespine - not bad but we think you'll want to turn sideways each turn instead.
Spite of Mogis - nice cheap burn late game.
Kruphix's Insight - decent draw filter as well as graveyard tech.
