Hour of Devastation Promos


Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

We have for you today, several Hour of Devastation spoilers, specifically Magic: the Gathering promo cards for the upcoming set.  These had been released into the wild internets yesterday by Three Kingdoms Games, located not very far from us in Markham, Ontario.  We are certain that the kit they received very early from Wizards from Wizards of the Coast will be the subject of a telephone call / email they will receive today from Wizards.

Anywhoos, since (almost) everyone is now talking about them, we shall too.  Posted to the Three Kingdoms Games are the following Hour of Devastation promo cards one could expect during the upcoming events.

Some brief notes -

• Ramunap Excavator - yeah! Reanimator decklists may be enjoying a proper resurgence again.  Perhaps there is room for a Black / Green Zombie build.

• Wildfire Eternal - That is a pretty full type line there.  Afflict looks to be a new mechanic and the Zombie / Jackal / Cleric provides a compelling reason to always block this thing when it goes into the red zone.

• Abrade - love this uncommon - great mana cost with two decent options.  This may be the new go-to spell against creature-heavy lists.

• Adorned Pouncer - Kitteh Tribal !  No idea that Eternalize may be fut for five mana, we are expecting something spicey.
