Happy Monday MTG peeps,
If you've missed the massive Magic: the Gathering leak, be sure to pop back to this post for a truckload of Oath of the Gatewatch spoilers. The same individual who had spoiled those cards had also spoiled the two face cards (in Japanese) for the upcoming Duel Deck product associated with Shadows over Innistrad to be released April 8th 2016.
Duel Decks: Blessed vs. Cursed is the 17th set in the Duel Decks series. It will be released February 26, 2016. Duel Decks are a great way for two expert players to face off against each other with ready-to-play, sixty-card decks that contain powerful cards related to a specific theme and feature six exciting new cards from Shadows over Innistrad. Here is some flavour to get you salivating -
Holy Warriors Unite Against the Unquiet Dead. A divine mission has once again united the Humans, Spirits, and Angels of Innistrad. Together, these protectors will stand against the shadows, fighting for humanity's salvation. Evil rules the night. Shambling hordes of the dead roam free, their cemetery gates in ruins, as powerful Demons soar overhead. The fate of the living remains shrouded in darkness. Will you defend hope or snuff it out?
Here are those two 'face' cards for the Duel Deck - there may be minor translation differences for that demon card.
Geist of Saint Traft, 1WU
Legendary Creature - Cleric, Spirit
Hexproof (This creature can’t be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.)
Whenever Geist of Saint Traft attacks, put a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying onto the battlefield tapped and attacking. Exile that token at end of combat.
Mindbreaker Demon, 2BB
Creature - Demon, Mythic Rare
When Mindbreaker Demon enters the battlefield put the four the library of your library into your graveyard.
At the beginning of your upkeep, if you don’t have 4 or more card types in your graveyard, lose 4 life.
