Happy Monday MTG peeps,
Week 2 of official Fate Reforged previews has kicked off today with a number of great cards and elegant illustrations which will have Magic: the Gathering fans excited. Here at MTG Realm, we'll do our very best to update the Fate Reforged Spoiler List with all the new card goodness and will tack on to this post any late day previews. Let's get down to business -
Creature - Human, Mythic Rare
1(W/B): Warden of the First Tree becomes a Human Warrior with base power and toughness 3/3.
2(W/B)(W/B): If Ward of the First Tree is a Warrior, it becomes a Human Spirit Warrior with trample and lifelink.
3(W/B)(W/B)(W/B): If Ward of the First Tree is a Spirit, put five +1/+1 counters on it.
Mothersite (Dave Humpherys) preview. Great green one-drop which provides a mana sink just like the powerful Figure of Destiny from Eventide.
Choose target creature. Whenever that creature is dealt damage this turn, it deals that much damage to each other creature or player.
Mothersite preview (Mike Canon's From the Lab). Kind of insane with a creature with lifelink.
Tasigur, the Golden Fang, 5B
Legendary Creature - Human Shaman
Delve (Each card you wxile from your graveyard will casting this spell pays for 1 colorless mana.)
2(G/U)(G/U): Put the top two cards of your library into your graveyard, then return a nonland card of an opponent's choice from your graveyard to your hand.
Mothersite preview (Mark Rosewater's Making Magic column) - Sultai Clan Leader. An important reminder that in Commander (EDH) rules, colour identity also counts the color of any mana activations on the card, so go nuts now with that Sultai build you may have been thinking about with this fine card as your General.
• Wardscale Dragon - nerfs opponent's instants when attacking.
• Mindscour Dragon - mills 4 when dealing combat damage to an opponent.
• Noxious Dragon - kills a 3 CMC creature when dies.
• Shockmaw Dragon - 1 point damage to each opponent's creature when dealing combat damage to an opponent.
• Destructor Dragon - nerfs non-creature permanent when dies.
Also - you've gotta check out the Fate Reforged Basic Lands previewed on the mothersite in Blake Rasumssen's Arcana post. Amazing illustrations.
Wild Slash, one-drop red instant burn Uncommon burn spell with 'Ferocious' upgrade, previewed by Reid Duke.
Fruit of the First Tree, WotC Korea Facebook preview - 4 CMC green aura giving life and card draw when when enchanted creature dies.
Mana Deprived preview. Whisperer of the Wilds - Two-drop Green Common mana dork with an upgrade with ferocious. Great common and likely to see constructed play as a key ramp card to get the fatties out early.
Limited Resources (http://lrcast.com) crew - Marshall Sutcliffe and Luis Scott-Vargas. Cunning Strike, Grim Contest, Harsh Sustenance, and War Flare multi-colour 'gold' common instant cycle. All very decent limited format cards.
