Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
We suggest you make tracks on over to the Wizards of the Coast Articles homepage some time today to read the next Magic: the Gathering story installment, from Doug Beyer. Titled 'Renegade Prime', we are finally introduced to the character Oviya Pashiri, which is to see print in the Kaladesh set as a legendary green creature. You can read the biographical summary over here for Oviya.
Some late-day previews over at io9 (~2PM) -
Creative Spark - One red mana sorcery, exiling top card of library to shoot target creature for that cards CMC - not too shabby.
Demolish - because we need something in this block to blow up artifacts or lands.
Disappearing Trick - (or 'act'?) conditional hard counter bouncing a permanent back to your hand.
Experimental Aviator - 0/3 human artificer for 3UU with an etb effect of 2x thopters - nice.
Metalwork Colossus - A 10/10 construct critter for 11 CMC with a cost reduction of the total cmc of non-creature artifacts you control Also with a sac clause for recursion.
Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter - Green one-drop 1/2 legendary. Creates a servo token for 3 or ana X/X construct based on the number of creatures you control. Nice mana sink.
Perpetual Timepiece - Decent artifact utility to move cards from your library to graveyard or save yourself from a mill deck.
Prophetic Prism - Mana stone colour fixer, with the added benefit of etb card draw.
Refurbish - 4 Mana white sorcery to fetch an artifact back onto the battlefield.
Torch Gauntlet - Who doesn't want a torch gauntlet? Simple pump of +2/+0.
