Happy Thursday MTG peeps,
There is yet another ('unofficial') spoiler we should talk about today. Wizards must be getting miffed with these - anywhoos, this one is from the upcoming and greatly anticipated Shadows Over Innistrad, which is to be released in early April 2016. This image, courtesy of an anonymous /b/-boarder from 4Chan appears to be an oversized card somewhere in the supply / shipping train. Sorry Trick, here's our non-journalism . .
Each opponent sacrifices a creature with flying.
It is a grim duty to save the world from those created to protect it.
197/297, illustrated by Howard Lyon.
Read that flavour text ? Damn !! What on earth (or rather the Plane of Innistrad) is happening here ? Have the Angels gone mad ? Have they been turned somehow ? Sooo many questions here. Howard Lyon rocks again with this art showing what appears to us to be a Boros-coloured Angel of the order Flight of Goldnight, being surrounded / hunted down by a Cathar and a human hunter.
As for the card itself, all we will say that this common instant looks damn powerful. You could have just sunk seven mana into an Emeria Sheppard or a Defiant Bloodlord which happens to be your ONLY flyer and then this guy shows up to the party. Dang. :)
Here is a quick tip for WotC investigators looking to identify the culprit who leaked this . . .
Look for a white guy who frequents 4Chan.
