Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
Oh gosh. Just a Magic: the Gathering spoiler overload here and we almost cannot keep up with the avalanche. We're going to get to just a few of the big Khans of Tarkir previews right now and will try to cover off the stragglers latter on our MTG Realm Tumblr page. Let's go !
Wingmate Roc, 3WW
Creature - Bird, Mythic Rare
Raid - When Wingmate Roc enters the battlefield, if you attacked with a creature this turn, put a 3/4 white Bird creature token with flying onto the battlefield.
Whenever Wingmate Roc attacks, you gain 1 life for each attacking creature.
Five mana for a creature with these 3/4 stats sounds bad but dang, the abilities here have us smiling. We will always want to drop this second main phase after combat to double down on this. Love it and all the potential life gain it could deliver - we're picking up a few from MTG Mint Card.
Rakshasa Vizier, 2BGU
Creature - Cat Demon, Rare
Whenever one or more cards are put into exite from your graveyard, put that manny +1/+1 couters on Rakshasa Vizier
That there is some scary cool art. We love that this provides some balance against Anafenza's graveyard hate.
~Flying Crane Technique, 3URW
Untap all creatures you control. All creatures you control gain flying and double strike until end of turn.
Happy MTG preview. Please beware of the translation issues and look for the official card on the mothersite later. An instant like this looks to be a powerhouse that could be used offensively or defensively.
Ghostfire Blade, 1
Artifact - Equipment, Rare
Equipped creature gets +2/+2
Ghostfire Blade's equip ability costs 2 less to activate if it targets a colorless creature.
With all the morph cards in this set, this just might make our list. At the very least, this can be a cheap artifact to feed Shrapnel Blast.
Speaking of morphs, there is also a full uncommon cycle out today as well -
