Happy Monday MTG peeps,
Hope that all of you have had a wonderful Christmas Holiday. We scored some very lovely prezzies from our brother Eric which we will get into in later posts but for today's post, we need to yatter about some of the big Oath of the Gatewatch previews and articles on the mothersite today. They've posted a number new cards as well as the new Magic: the Gathering mechanics we can expect to see in this new set.
These are Comparative Anaylsis, Deepfathom Skulker, Dread Defiler, Gladehart Cavalry, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Munda's Vanguard, Reckless Bushwhacker, Scion Summoner, Shoulder to Shoulder, Spatial Contortion, Stone Haven Outfitter, Tyrant of Valakut and Walker of the Wastes.
Check out Matt Tabbak's (Rules-Monger) article on the new mechanics over here. The new tech includes -
• Colorless Mana Symbol - and the very cool new 'Wastes' basic land. This has been already discussed in length.
• Cohort - Tap an untapped Ally you control: Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control.
• Support - Support' N' - Put a +1/+1 counter on each of up to N target creatures.
• Surge - 'Surge X - You may cast this spell for its surge cost if you or a teammate has cast another spell this turn.
