Happy Monday MTG peeps,
Here in Canada-Land, most people have taken today off as tomorrow (June 1st) is Canada Day, making it an epic four-day long weekend. Speaking of weekend, we hope yours went very well and you had a chance to get in some Magic: the Gathering games. Next weekend (12th July) is the much anticipated Magic 2015 core set prerelease event with the release following on Friday 18th. Look for our coverage of these events at OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario.
We are constantly updating our M15 spoiler list page so drop by often, and now is a good time to start organizing your M15 pre-orders at MTG Mint Card. Anywhoos - let's get on with today's M15 previews !
Garruk, Apex Predator, 5BG
Planeswalker - Garruk, Mythic Rare
[+1]: Destroy another target planeswalker.
[+1]: Put a 3/3 black Beast creature token with deathtouch onto the battlefield.
[-3]: Destroy target creature. You gain life equal to its toughness.
[-8]: Target opponent gets an emblem with "Whenever a creature attacks you, it gets +5/+5 and gains trample until end of turn."
Wait. Wut? Yep - four abilities and there's two plus. There is little doubt that this card will make a significant impact on your game when it hits 'n' sticks on the battlefield.
Aether Whirlwind, 3UU
For each attacking creature, its owner chooses to put it on the top or bottom of his or her deck.
Damn nice removal here. We're thinking that perhaps this is better than the Tenth Edition 'Evacuation' as you would keep this in hand until your opponent alpha-strikes you, leaving the board open for your attack.
Necromancer's Stockpile, 1B
1B, Discard a creature card: Draw a card. If the discarded card was a Zombie card, put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield tapped.
This early two-drop enchantment may be a solid choice in that zombie decklist you've been wanting to build. Paying two and discarding a 1/1 zombie nets you a 2/2 token and an extra card - yes please.
Chord of Calling, XGGG
Convoke (Your creatures can help cast this spell. Each creature you tap while casting this spell pays for 1 (colorless) or one mana of that creature's color.)
Search your library for a creature card with converted mana cost X or less and put it onto the battlefield. Then shuffle your library.
THIS! Has us very rather excited. This reprint from Ravnica was wildly popular and there is little doubt that players will be building standard constructed decklists with this again.
Boonweaver Giant, 6W
Creature - Giant Monk, Uncommon
When Boonweaver Giant enters the battlefield, you may search your graveyard, hand and/or library for an Aura card and put it onto the battlefield attached to Boonweaver Giant. If you search your library this way, shuffle it.
Not all that terrible - especially if you can ramp into it and tutor an powerful (high-costed) aura singleton from you library.
