Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
Hey there, like Eldrazi Drones 'n' Processors ? Then you've gotta get in here today for a bunch 'o' commons. Battle for Zendikar spoilers and previews continue and we think most Magic: the Gathering players will be rather pleased to see Beastcaller Expert - 'nuff said - let's have a looky-loo ->
Beastcaller Expert, 1G
Creature - Elf Shaman Ally, Rare
T: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool. Use this mana only to cast creature spells.
Planet MTG preview - Love this card! If there was not a mana dork of similar quality with Battle for Zendikar, we would have cried foul.
Drana, Liberator of Malakir, 1BB
Legendary Creature - Vampire Ally
Flying, first strike
Whenever Drana, Liberator of Malakir deales combat damage to a player, put a +1/+1 counter on each attacking creature you control.
Rumours were apparently correct on this one. Drana looks good to provide a counter party for survivors of your alpha strike. The illustration from Mike Bierek also graces the Battle for Zendikar Champion playmat.
Guul Draz Overseer, 4BB
Creature - Vampire, Rare
Landfall - Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, other creatures you control get +1/+0 until end of turn. If that land is a Swamp, those creatures get +2/+0 until end of turn instead.
OK - so it's a 3/4 for 6 cmc and doesn't fly / first strike / etc. If you do get landfall, that's a nice little pump, even better if it was a swamp - BUT - that does not even pump itself ! This card is crap and destined for the dollar bin.
Blighted Cataract - Uncommon Land, tap for colourless or 5U, tap, sac and draw two.
Scour from Existence - Common colourless 7 mana instant, exile target permanent.
Benthic Infiltrator - Common unblockable devoid 2U Eldrazi Drone 1/4 with ingest. Nice.
Murk Strider - Common devoid Eldrazi Processor 3U 3/2 ETB exile to graveyard with conditional bounce.
Culling Drone - Common devoid Eldrazi Drone 1B 2/2 with ingest.
Complete Disregard - Common devoid Instant 2B exiling creature 3 or less.
Mind Raker - Common devoid Eldrazi Processor 3B 3/3 ETB exile to graveyard conditional discard.
