Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
We are still absorbing the very early Aether Revolt leak from yesterday which delivered three full and one partial Magic: the Gathering spoiler.
In summary, these were :
• Quicksmith Rebel - Launch Promo
• Scrap Trawler - Buy-A-Box promo
• Trophy Mage - Game Day participation promo
• Yahenni's Expertise - Game day top 8 promo
Speaking of Yahenni, it is of great surprise that this Aetherborn is the subject of today's Magic Story Installment. Do pop on over to the mothersite to read 'In the Dead of Night', wonderfully penned by Alison Lurhs. Today we learn that the Atherborn creature known as Yahenni, is a notable citizen, socialite and philanthropist, but also has just become something more dangerous - an Essence Drainer. Not all Aetherborn can draw life essence from other beings into themselves to prolong their own existence, but Yahenni is able to. Certainly not an evil being leeching life from another, but more like Louis (played by Brad Pitt) in 'Interview with a Vampire', who detests the thought of becoming a murderer.
With today's new Magic story (linky over here again), there are a number of lovely new arts, in all liklihood to see print in the upcoming Aether Revolts set:
• Yahenni's Expertise, by Jason A. Engle
• Ghirapur city scene, by Jonas De Ro
