Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,
Hey Planeswalkers ! Did you drop by for some Shadows Over Innistrad spoilers and previews ? Good, we've rounded them up here and will be on the look out for moar. Here is the offerings for your review today -
Goldnight Castigator, 2RR
Creature - Angel, Mythic Rare
If a source would deal damage to you, it deals double that damage to you instead.
If a source would deal damage to Goldnight Castigator, it deals double that damage to Goldnight Castigator instead.
Mothersite preview. This is the evil twin to Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. Likely a decent sideboard against control or perhaps (stretching it a bit) an 'all-in' aggro strategy. If you are going for the latter and do not want to feel the sting of the serious down-side of this, we suggest pairing with Assault Formation, so we can get the Castigator starting a very fast clock with 9 evasive damage.
Creature - Human Soldier, Rare
At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control four or more creatures, transform Hanweird Militia Captain.
Westvale Cult Leader
Creature - Human Cleric
Westvale Cult Leader's power and toughness are each equal to the number of creatures you control.
At the beginning of your end step, put a 1/1 white and black Human Cleric creature token onto the battlefield.
ARS Technica UK preview. Solid flavour here. This appears to be able to flip reasonably quickly, especially going with red / white human (tribal) with the likes of Pia and Kiran Nalaar in standard. We love us some token generators.
At the beginning of your upkeep, choose one -
• Each player with exactly 13 life loses the game, then each player gains 1 life.
• Each player with exactly 13 life loses the game, then each player loses 1 life.
LoadingReadyRun preview. This fear is the extreme superstition regarding the number thirteen and this card demonstrates why. We have a soft spot for alternate win conditions. If you are serious about playing this, tread carefully - otherwise a totally mad-crazy-fun card. By the way - how many things of '13' can you find in the card art? :)
Fevered Visions, 1UR
At the beginning of each player's end step, that player draws a card. If that player is your opponent and has four or more cards in hand, Fevered Visions deals 2 damage to him or her.
BrainStormBrewery preview. If you are a fan of the tall stacks, we suggest dropping this into your 99 along with Nekusar, the Mindrazer as Commander / General.
Avacyn's Judgment, 1R
Madness XR (If you discard this card, discard it into exile. When you do, cast it for its madness cost or put it into your graveyard.)
Avacyn's Judgment deals 2 damage divided as you choose among any number of target creatures and/or players. If Avacyn's Judgment's madness cost was paid, it deals X damage divided as you choose among those creatures and/or players instead.
Mothersite preview. Nice burn spell but will likely see only the sideboard against tokens perhaps. As for the art - it looks like Tamiyo is helping Jace out of a tight spot.
Other non-rare Shadows Over Innistrad previews out today include -
• Angelic Purge • Nahiri's Machinations
• Stonewing Antagonizer
• Thraben Gargoyle
