Happy Thursday MTG peeps,
A good number of new Dragons of Tarkir spoilers and previews overnight which we will need to catch up on in this post. Please do expect another update to this after the regular mothersite article promotions at 11 EST. Anywhoos, there is a little something for every Magic: the Gathering player, so let's slip into gear now.
Dromoka's Command, GW
Choose two —
• Prevent all damage target instant or sorcery spell would deal this turn.
• Target player sacrifices an enchantment.
• Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature.
• Target creature you control fights target creature you don't control.
Mothersite preview. WOW. This is very good and we definitely will include this in any green / white build.
Clone Legion, 7UU
Sorcery, Mythic Rare
For each creature target player controls, put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of that creature.
Mothersite preview. Did you just hear that sound of all those Commander players screaming in joy (or pain, if they are playing blue)? Lovely.
Myth Realized, W
Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, put a lore counter on Myth Realized.
2W: Put a lore counter on Myth Realized.
W: Until end of turn, becomes a Monk Avatar creature in addition to its other types and gains "This creature's power and toughness are equal to the number of lore counters on it."
Mana Deprived / Eh Team preview. Dang fine card here - animate until eot means shelter from rath 'n' removal in most cases. We can see this getting the nod in a few formats and are definitely interested in getting this in an enchantress build.
Commune with Lava, XRR
Exile the top X cards of your library.
Until the end of your next turn, you may play those cards.
TMT preview. Looks to be rather decent late game but we think that this is going straight into a Commander build of ours.
Damnable Pact, XBB
Target player draws X cards and loses X life.
The Mana Source preview. This Sign in Blood has leg room and will get played - especially powerful in Commander. Pre-rotation, this might make a one or two of in a u/b control or mono-black devotion build.
Icefall Regent, 3UU
Creature - Dragon, Rare
When Icefall Regent enters the battlefield, tap target creature an opponent controls. That creature doesn't untap during its controller's uptanp step for as long as you control Icefall Regent.
Spells your opponents cast that target Icefall Regent cost 2 more to cast.
Magic Show preview. Solid card and we would not be disapointed in pulling this from a pack. Never underestimate the usefullness of sidelining an oponent's most valuable critter.
Vial of Dragonfire, Loading Ready Run preview. Limited maybe - its a stretch.
Wandering Tombshell, Loading Ready Run preview. Zombie Turtle !! Yeah, that's about it.
Ainok Survivalist, Joy of Cubing preview. Hippy-Hound nerfs artifacts and enchantments with the megamorph's face up.
Silkwrap, Pure MTGO preview. Journey to Nowhere was a good card, this one is not.
Belltoll Dragon, Wizards MTG Twitter preview. Sucks, but at least its got hexproof going for it, which is nice.
