Happy Canada Day MTG peeps,
Joyeux Fête du Canada. The British North American act of 1867 created an environment in which Magic: the Gathering could be played freely within the Dominion of Canada.
Anywhoos, enough of that nonsense - everything is closed up our way so we are most definitely on top of Magic Origins spoilers and previews as the internet never takes a day off. Here are today's cardboard awesomeness.
A whole bunch of new Magic Origins cards via Spell Slingers (video belwo) - Anointer of Champions, Auramancer, Blightcaster, Blood-Cursed Knight, Fleshbag Marauder, Magmatic Insight, Reclusive Artificer , Skysnare Spider, Somberwald Alpha, Stalwart Aven, Tragic Arrogance, and Zendikar's Roil.
Tragic Arrogance, 3WW
For each player, you choose from among the permanents that player controls an artifact, a creature, an enchantment, and a planeswalker. Then each player sacrifices all other non land permanents he or she controls.
The spear thrown by Kytheon's own hand was the weapon that felled his friends.

Mothersite preview. Five mana for a one-sided board reset is a fair price in our books. Love this card.
Erebos's Titan, 1BBB
Creature - Giant, Mythic Rare
Erebos's Titan has indestructible as long as no opponent controls a creature.
Whenever a creature leaves an opponent's graveyard, you may discard a card. If you do, return Erebos's Titan from your graveyard to your hand.

MagicBlogs.De German preview. Perhaps it is the lack of caffeine but we think there may be only a very finite number of decklists which this may be appropriate in.
Gilt-Leaf Winnower, 3BB
Creature - Elf Warrior, Rare
Menace (This creature can't be blocked except by two or more creatures.)
When Gilt-Leaf Winnower enters the battlefield, you may destroy target non-Elf creature whose power and toughness aren't equal.

Magic Show preview. Nice stats on this card and menace is sweet - go green / black elves!
Herald of the Pantheon, 1G
Creature - Centaur Shaman, Rare
Encahntment spells you cast cost 1 less to cast.
Whenever you cast an enchantment spell, you gain 1 life.
The distinction of bearing the gods' banner is nothing compared to the glory of being closer to Nyx.

The Magic Tutor preview. Love it! Green / white enchantress lists are very near and dear to our heart.
Nissa's Revelation, 5GG
Scry 5, then reveal the top card of your library. If it's a creature card, you draw cards equal to its power and gain life equal to its toughness.

MTG Japan preview. Pretty sweet late game card with a decidedly powerful effect which could swing a game your way.
Outland Colossus, 3GG
Creature - Giant, Rare
Renown 6 (When this creature deals combat damage to a player, if it isn't renowned, put six +1/+1 counters on it and it becomes renowned.)
Outland Colossus can't be blocked by more than one creature.
