Oath of the Gatewatch Spoilers 12-18

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

This may be another full weekend of fun at our local gaming store, OMG! Games, here in Barrie, Ontario, Canada-Land.  Kicking things off tonight is Friday Night Magic, featuring both Standard and Commander games. Then tomorrow is a great / interesting twist on budget constructed - Full Metal Budget. The MTG Realm group won't be able to get out to see the new Star Wars movie 'The Force Awakens' until next week, so we'll likely stay off the interwebz to avoid spoilers and just stick to slinging cards.

Anywhoos, earlier in the week was a massive leak of unofficial Oath of the Gatewatch cards.  We suggest you pop on over to the mothersite to read Trick Jarrett's articles on 'Why Leaks Hurt'.  MTG Realm will always cover spoilers and leaks that make it out to the internet but will say we will never knowingly with purpose post an original leaked card.  With that, we have now two more cards - the first one from forum user Limly who had posted 'Endbringer', a Release Promo card.  The second was previewed (officially) by GatheringMagic, the 'Buy-a-Box' promo card.  Let's have a looky-loo -

Endbringer, 5C
Creature - Eldrazi, Rare
Untap Endbringer during each other player's untap step.
T: Endbringer deals 1 damage to target creature or player.
C, T: Target creature can't attack or block this turn.
CC, T: Draw a card.

Goblin Dark-Dwellers, 3RR
Creature - Goblin
When Goblin Dark-Dwellers enters the battlefield, you may cast target instant or sorcery card with converted mana cost 3 or less from your graveyard without paying its mana cost. If that card would be put into your graveyard this turn, exile it instead.

Endbringer seems to be a solid choice in a number of different of builds requiring a bit of utility and three great choices of activated abilities.  The Goblin card should be a bomb in limited - being able to flip another 3 CMC spell outta your yard can be a powerful effect if timed right.
