Fate Reforged Spoilers 1-02

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

As it is Friday, get back into the swing of things and get out to a Friday Night Magic event this evening.  If you've just recently moved to a new town or are staying with friends and don't know where to play, be sure to check with the very handy Wizards of the Coast store / event locator over here to find the closest WPN store.  If you happen to be near Barrie, Ontario (about an hour's north of Toronto, Canada-Land) drop into OMG! Games near Georgian College and get your game on.

For today's post, we have more Magic: the Gathering Fate Reforged previews on tap.  Prerelease events take place on the 17th / 18th January with the release on the 23rd January.  Be sure to check our frequent updates to Tumblr, Facebook and the Fate Reforged Spoiler List as all the new cards are previewed.  Amnywhos, - tally-ho and onto today's new offerings !
Brutal Hordechief, 3B
Creature - Orc Warrior, Mythic Rare
Whenever a creature you control attacks, defending player loses 1 life and you gain 1 life.
3 R/W mana R/W mana : Creatures your opponents control block this turn if able, and you choose how those creatures block.

TCG Player preview.  Very powerful - much like.  If this had haste, it could win games outta nowhere.

Mardu Strike Leader, 2B
Creature - Human Warrior, Rare 
Whenever Mardu Strike Leader attacks, put a 2/1 black Warrior creature token onto the battlefield. 
Dash {3}{B} (You may cast this spell for its dash cost. If you do, it gains haste, and it is returned from the battlefield to your hand at the beginning of the next end step.)

We are completely digg'n this card and are aching to get a standard format W/B warrior decklist together.  Making dudes and not paying mana is sweet and even the high Dash cost might just make the cut.  Definitely getting a bookset of these for our MTG Mint Card pre-order.
Crucible of the Spirit Dragon
Land, Rare
{T}: Add {1} to your mana pool. 

{1}, {T}: Put a storage counter on Crucible of the Spirit Dragon. 
{T}, Remove X storage counters from Crucible of the Spirit Dragon: Add X mana in any combination of colors to your mana pool. Spend this mana only to cast Dragon spells or activate abilities of Dragons.

The Jung Park art here is lovely and we're intrigued by the (Zendikar-style) Hedrons - perhaps Ugin had some help from a certain lithomancer.  Sliver Hive was a great card - this one however looks like garbage - terrible waste of a rare land slot. 
Mothersite previews here -

Citadel Siege, 2WW
Enchantment, Rare
As Citadel Siege enters the battlefield, choose Khans or Dragons.

• Khans — At the beginning of combat on your turn, put two +1/+1 counters on target creature you control. 
• Dragons — At the beginning of combat on each opponent's turn, tap target creature that player controls. 

Flamewake Phoenix, 
Creature - Phoenix, Rare
Pow/Tgh: 2/2

Flying, haste 
Flamewake Phoenix attacks each turn if able. 
Ferocious – At the beginning of combat on your turn, if you control a creature with power 4 or greater, you may pay (R). If you do, return Flamewake Phoenix from your graveyard to the battlefield.

Supplant Form, 4UU
Instant, Rare
Return target creature to its owner's hand. You may put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of that creature.

We love the Siege cycle as well as the other two here.  Stay tuned for a second post where we cover off all the Fate Reforged promo cards.
