Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
We are definitely digg'n all the new Commander 2014 previews so far and are pretty much right beside ourselves with only one more Planeswalker Commander to be revealed. We've got a few theories about the white Commander in this Magic: the Gathering set - all revolving around a certain Lithomancer (a wizard who can manipulate stone / gems).
EDIT - Apparently we now have exactly what we've hoped for - the Lithomancer herself. Not quite as 'strong' as we were hoping for but we will not complain too loudly.
We're pretty much certain we'll be picking up both the green (for Rtech) as well as the white (for me) C14 products from our local gaming store OMG! Games and then getting a haul of singles from MTG Mint Card (for RStomp).
Anywhoos - look for all of today's Commander 2014 spoilers and previews to be updated here -
