Fate Reforeged Spoilers 1-08

Happy Thursday MTG peeps,

Another batch of Fate Reforged previews again today for the lot of you.  It's damn cold here in Canada-Land and were it not for the Magic: the Gathering spoilers and previews, we suspect we would have had cabin fever by now.  Anywhoos, without further ado, here's today's batch which we will update as they roll in -

Hero's Blade, 2
Artifact -- Equipment, Uncommon
Equipped creature gets +3/+2.
Whenever a legendary creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may attach Hero's Blade to it.
Equip 4 

Aaron Forsythe twitter preview.  Sweet equipment that Commander players will love.  Suggested serving is with a General had haste (like Exava), or gives a bonus for an equipment (like Kemba).

Rally the Ancestors, XWW
Instant, Rare
Return each creature card with converted mana cost X or less from your graveyard to the battlefield. Exile those creatures at the beginning of your next upkeep. Exile Rally the Ancestors.

Moxes (Spanish) preview - Group the Ancestors.  Nice instant in a pinch.  We liked that the critters unturfed with Immortal Servitude did come back forever over this which appears to be a completely defensive spell.
Ghastly Conscription, 5BB
Sorcery, Rare
Exile all creature cards from target player's graveyard in a face-down pile, shuffle that pile, then manifest those cards (To manifest a card, put it onto the battlefield face down as a 2/2 creature. Turn it face up any time for its mana cost if it's a creature card.)

Mothersite preview.  Garbage mythic is pretty bad.  We think that this was designed with multiplayer Commander in mind but why wouldn't you just play Rise of the Dark Realms for an extra two mana, recover all the creatures in all the yards with their eotb effects.
Mardu Scout, RR
Creature - Goblin Scout, Common
Dash 1R (You may cast this spell for its dash cost. If you do, it gains haste, and it's returned from the battlefield to its owner's hand at the beinnin og the next end step.)

Mothersite preview.  Nice common whose dash ability may attract a few players.  Great stats and mana cost which may fit in nicely to a few existing decklists.
Mardu Woe-Reaper, W
Creature - Human Warrior, Uncommon
Whenever Mardu Woe-Reaper or another Warrior enters the battlefield under your control, you may exile target creature card from a graveyard. If you do, gain 1 life.

SvenskaMagic preview. Nice solid one-drop for black / white tokens - dump your hand of warrior weenies while exiling dudes from your opponent's yard which could have been used for possible recursion - not seeing any issues here.
Renowned Weaponsmith, 1U
Creature - Human Artificer, Uncommon
t: Add 2 to your mana pool. Spend this mana only to cast artifact spells or activate abilities of artifacts.
U, t: Search your library for a card named Heart-Piercer Bow or Vial of Dragonfire, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Loading Ready Run Preview.  According to this card, there appears to be two artifacts we've not seen yet - both completely crap-tastic we bet.  We are however rather exciting to accelerate into fatties like Scuttling Doom Engine or Soul of New Phyrexia.

Heart-Piercer Bow was in Khans of Tarkir, and I'm 99.99% sure that Vial of Dragonfire will be in Dragons of Tarkir rather than Fate Reforged. You know: symmetry, 2 different futures, works differently in the 2 draft environments, etc.
