Kaladesh Previews 9-13

Happy  Tuesday MTG peeps,

Following up yesterday's post ('Masterpiece Monday', as coined by WotC staffers, we'll been rustling up some of those stunningly beautiful card illustrations for the Kaladesh Inventions over at MTG Realm on Tumblr, so pop on over to take in the crazy-good art.

Today's Magic: the Gathering news is the regular round-up of new Kaladesh previews from the mothersite as well as a number of fan/community media outlets.  WotC staffer Blake also has a few new cards previewed over on the big site, which are to be part of those new Kaladesh Planeswalker Decks.  Anywhoos, lets get along to those new Kaladesh spoilers 'n' preivews now -

Aetherborn Marauder - A 2/2 flying life-linker for 4 CMC kinda sucks - BUT - the ability to shuffle counters can make this a solid threat.  Is friends with new 'fabricate' ability.

Authority of the Consulate - Damn fine white one-drop providing a 'Blind Obedience' effect with a half-latte Soul Warden.

Bomat Courier - Bom-bad?  Perhaps not.

Dovin Baan - Awesome Azorious 'Walker is awesome.  Decent blue/white control and all decent abilities.

Eliminate the Competition - Someone needs a bandage.  Never will want to volunteer as a first aid responder at the Inventor's Fair.

Inspired Charge - Absolutely un-inspired by this.

Maulfist Squad - Potential 4/2 with menance - sounds good for a common.

Padeem, Consul of Innovation - protection for artifacts is decent we would imagine in this set.  Repeatable card-draw is also a rather decent ability.  No 'wow' factor howeveer with Padeem who fails to impress us.

Ruinous Gremlin - Great art, might be a pick in limited to considering the wave of artifacts we are getting.

Salivating Gremlins - Damn Gremlins eating all my inventions!  Decent conditional and relevant ability here.

Scrapheap Scrounger - We like 'yard recursion just as much as the next necromonger, but we are not quite sold on this card.

Whirler Virtuoso - Three Izzet mana for two creatures (2/3 and a 1/1 flying thopter) - we're calling this value.
