Happy Friday MTG peeps,
Some rather interesting news out just a few hours ago. Although we were expecting to see our very first official Commander 2014 previews on the mothersite on Monday, it appears that redditor 'Comradepatrick' was able to snap up two of the previews today.
Commander 2014 Edition is a product in the very next offering in the popular Commander series that will be released by Wizards of the Coast on November 7, 2014. This set was announced at the Magic panel at the San Diego Comic-Con on July 26, 2014. To date, only three cards were officially previewed - Teferi, Temporal ARchmage, Ghoulcaller Glisa and Stitcher Geralf.
Let's have a look at the new cards now - please do keep in mind that these cards are as of the time of this post still unofficial. Please only refer to the official site for previews.
EDIT ! - We did not see this article earlier today on the mothersite update approximately 11 AM local time so we suspect that Wizards may have posted the article latter in the afternoon after reddit first posted. Read the Feature article 'A Love Letter to Vorthos' from Ethan Fleischer and Ian Duke over here.
Feldon of the Third Path, 1RR
Legendary Creature - Human Artificer, Mythic Rare
2R, T: put a token onto the battlefield that is a copy of target creature card in your graveyard except that it's an artifact in addition to its other types. It gains haste. Sacrifice it at the beginning of the next end step.
"She will come back to me."

This has so much flavour, it's almost flavour overload. This is a nice inexpensive Commander with a rather decent rr-useable activated ability.
Angelic Field Marshal, 2WW
Creature - Angel, Rare
Lieutenant - As long as you control your commander, Angelic Field Marshal gets +2/+2 and creatures you control have vigilance.
"Her presence on the battlefield can transform an unruly mob into a disciplined army."

The art is is fantastic. The new 'Lieutenant' tech seems very solid, nothing over the top but certainly welcome. This card wants us to imagine a certain legendary angel creature being printed in this set. (very excited now!)
