Oath of the Gatewatch Spoiler 12-02

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

Something very interesting happened late yesterday evening which Magic: the Gathering fans will be talking about for several weeks.  Another unconfirmed / unofficial Oath of the Gatewatch spoiler - and this time a spoiler indeed and no suggestion of a carefully planned preview from Wizards of the Coast to look like a leak.

Someone, likely a distributor (as even the most far flung remote retailers will not see Oath of the Gatewatch product for weeks to come) took some pictures of an Pre-Release Pack, popped it open and also took pics of the Pre-Release Promo card.  The user 'ogwanon123' created a Reddit account, posted via Imgur and then quickly noped the heck off the interwebs after burning the account.

Anywhoos, lets have a look at the pics he posted !

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, WB
Legendary Creature - Kor Cleric, Rare
1, Sacrifice another creature: You gain life equal to the sacrificed creature's toughness.
1WB, Sacrifice another creature: Exile target nonland permanent. Activate this ability only if you have at least 10 life more than your starting life total.
Illus. Cynthia Sheppard     

This card if it is real (and yes we really do think it is) is quite a crazy-good card that will see popular play across several formats.  B/W Soul Sisters, Deadguy Ale, Abzan 2-drop, Nantuko / Blood Artist / Zulaport sac shennanigans, tribal Kor, but not perhaps Allies.

Anywhoos, we've heard Ayli before - in this Uncharted Realms story - The Believers' Pilgrimage, delivered by our fav WotC writer Doug Beyer. Wrapping up this post, here is a rather witty / prophetic response from MaRo on Blagatog -
