Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
We are attempting to keep up with the blistering pace of Magic: the Gathering spoilers and previews this week and although there have been a few that have come over the wire, rest assured, that we've caught them all on our Magic 2015 Spoiler List.
There has been an indication from MaRo that we can expect SIX planeswalkers in this core set - a new Ajani (white), Jace (blue), a reprinted Liliana Vess (black), a reprinted Chandra Pyromaster (red), a new Nissa (green), and in all liklihood, a black-green Garruk. If you already have the reprints, you're good to go, if not, pop over to MTG Mint Card and pick 'em up today. In a latter article, we'll yatter about what we think about these new cards. Anywhoos, Let's get to them now!
Ajani Steadfast, 3W

[-2]: Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control, then put a loyalty counter on each other planeswalker you control.
[-7]: You get an emblem with "If damage would be dealt to you or a planeswalker you control, prevent all but 1 of that damage."
Nissa, Worldwaker, 3GG
Planeswalker - Nissa, Mythic Rare
[+1]: Target land you control becomes a 4/4 Elemental creature with trample. It's still a land.
[+1]: Untap up to four target Forests.

Chandra, Pyromaster, 2RR
Planeswalker - Chandra, Mythic Rare
[+1]: Chandra, Pyromaster deals 1 damage to target player and 1 damage to up to one target creature that player controls. That creature can't block this turn.

As Obelisk of Urd enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.
Creatures you control of the chosen type get +2/+2.
Crucible of Fire, 3R
Dragon creatures you control get +3/+3.
Today on the mothersite, there was also a new creature cycle revealed, based upon the older Sedge Troll card where the creature gets +1/+1 if you control a basic allied colour land and has an activated ability using that colour.
