~Happy Friday (again) MTG peeps,
Wizards just let us into Thraben Cathedral on the Shadows Over Innistrad map. To sort out the previous posts on the very fun interactive map, here is the linked list -
• Stitcher’s Lab
INTO THRABEN CATHEDRALA cathedral's broken doorway lies open. It appears the horrors have already touched this place. You should investigate...
You stand at the doorway to what was once a bastion of light against the many horrors of Innistrad. Clearly, something has gone wrong at Thraben Cathedral. Will you explore the haunting ruins?
You step through the grand doorway of the cathedral. As you walk through the space, the pews seem sinsiter and rotted in the shadowy light, and bloody feathers litter the ground. Something strange has happened here. Survive the horrors and dangers of Thraben Cathedral! Follow the clues throughout the weekend to unravel the madness on Innistrad.
Flavour time for this Cathedral - The High city of Thraben, within the parish of the same name, lies in on the northern edge of the province of Gavony. The eastern tip of the rock juts out over the waterfall itself, and it is on this dramatic pinnacle that the Cathedral of Avacyn stands.
The executioner's tree (Tree of Redemption), located in Thraben Cathedral, holds the power to absolve more than the souls of the hanged. The Helvault is a huge silver mass that stands at the precipice inside the courtyard of the Cathedral of Avacyn in the city of Thraben. Its surface is rough and unrefined, and thin veins of dark mortar branch across its surface.
The one card previewed on the map's Cathedral site is Relentless Dead, but we do now have the Shadows Over Innistrad card spoiled for that ghostly cleric as well -
Relentless Dead, BB
Creature - Zombie, Mythic Rare
Menace (This creature can't be blocked except by two or more creatures.)
When Relentless Dead dies, you may pay B. If you do, return it to its owner's hand.
When Relentless Dead dies, you may pay x. If you do, return another target Zombie creature card with converted mana cost X from your graveyard to the battlefield.
Bygone Bishop, 2W
Creature - Spirit Cleric, Rare
Whenever you cast a creature spell with converted mana cost 3 or less, investigate. (Put a colorless Clue artifact token onto the battlefield with "2, Sacrifice this artifact: Draw a card.")
