Fate Reforged Spoilers 1-07

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

Loads of awesome articles now up on the Wizards Magic site now - check out Uncharted Realms, Organised Play, Wallpaper of the week, and more.  The Arcana page has tokens posted for Fate Reforged which we'll yatter about in our next MTG Realm article, but for now, lets get into some of the new cards -

Scroll of the Masters, 2
Artifact, Rare
Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, put a lore counter on Scroll of the Masters.
3,Tap: Target creature you control gets +1/+1 for each lore counter on Scroll of the Masters.

Mothersite preview.  Sorta meh - we appreciate that this can be quite a weapon in the right build but we would rather be playing something else in this CMC slot.

Jeskai Barricade - Mothersite preview.  Damn nice card - solid defender with the ability to save a critical creature from removal / board wipe.

Temur Sabertooth - Magic Tutor preview. Another fine card which in itself can be a beat stick or save your bacon in a pinch.

Neutralizing Blast - Pure MTGO preview.  Yet another sweet spell but somewhat slightly diminished that it can only target multicoloured spells.

Ambush Krotiq - Mothersite preview.  Nothing to write home about here.

Ugin's Construct - Mothersite preview.  Jury is out at the moment - we want to think more about creating a better benefit with this eotb sac.

Late day preview from - 
Abzan Beastmaster, 2G
Creature - Shaman Scout, Uncommon

At the beginning of your upkeep, draw a card if you control the creature with the greatest toughness or tied for the greatest toughness.
(rough translation)
Frost Walker, 1U
Creature - Elemental, Uncommon
When Frost Walker becomes the target of a spell or ability, sacrifice it.

(rough translation)

Team Mint preview.  Solid 2-drop and yes, this will make waves in limited and perhaps beyond.  This almost looks like it could be an illusion creature - Shame it's not an illusion, cuz we'd get right up in there with Lord of the Unreal. At the very least, it will take down a four-toughness beater or require your opponent to address and waste a spot removal card on this.
