Happy Thursday - and Happy New Year MTG peeps,
Best wishes to you, the MTG Realm reader in 2015 - our success as a Magic: the Gathering blog is due completely to your continued interest in reading our daily posts. The next MTG set Fate Reforged is ready to be unleashed in just a few weeks time (PreRelease on 17 / 18 January with the launch the following weekend), official previews are kicking into high gear and certainly will not take a break today on New Year's Day. Let's get down to the new card awesomeness now -
Monastery Mentor, 2W
Creature - Human Monk, Mythic Rare
Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, put a 1/1 white Monk creature token with prowess onto the battlefield.
StarCity Games preview. Pretty dang sweet! This is just the spell that players were looking for with Jeskai Tokens decklists. Get ready to see a lot of Monk tokens on the battlefield.
~Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest, 2U
Legendary Creature - Human Monk, Rare
Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, you may pay (R/W)(R/W). If you do, target creature gains double strike until end of turn.
Gathering Magic preview. Here is the new Jeskai Clan 'Khan' leader. We think there may be quite a few happy Commander players out there with this one.
Sorcerer of the Hunt (translation?)
Creature - Orc Shaman, 3R
Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player, put a +1/+1 counter on it
Ferocity - 2(G/U)(G/U) : draw a card for each creature with power 4 or greater you control
MTG Japan preview. Never underestimate the power of a 4/2 haste creature coming down by at least turn four. This spell may not make much of a splash in standard / modern formats given the two toughness but we must admit that the ferocious card draw is rather nice late game.
Torrent Elemental (translation ?), 4U
Creature - Elemental, Mythic Rare
Whenever Torrent Elemental attacks, tap all creatures defending player controls.
3(B/G)(B/G) : Return Torrent Elemental from the exiled zone to the battlefield tapped. Activate this ability only any time you could cast a sorcery.
Monastery Siege, 2U
As Monastery Siege enters the battlefield, choose Khans or Dragons.
• Khans - At the beginning of your draw step, draw an additional card, then discard a card.
• Dragons - Spells your opponents cast that target you or a permanent you control cost 2(colourless) more to cast.
Daghatar the Adament, 3W
Legendary Creature - Human Warrior
Daghatar the Adament enters the battlefield with four +1/+1 counters on it.
1(B/G)(B/G): Move a +1/+1 counter from target creature onto a second target creature.
