Rivals of Ixalan Previews

Happy Monday MTG peeps,

Rest In Peace 2017
2017 - 2017
 Secrets of the Golden City, illustrated by Jason Felix.  Showing a Siren Pirate, with an interesting and illuminated book.  Most likely about how to properly cook and serve egg dishes.

A very Happy New Year to you as well - wishing the best for you in 2018.  If 2017 was a burning dumpster fire for you, we hope things will turn around.  As promised to all the Magic: the Gathering fans worldwide, Wizards of the Coast dropped the very first batch of Rivals of Ixalan previews this morning.  Pop on over to the mothersite now to soak it all in and do check out the Mechanics post 'Ascend' linked right over here.  Explore, transform cards, Raid, Treasure and Enrage are all back and is joined by the new Ascend mechanic.

Also be certain to pop on over to TCG for a very awesome video linked here - Rivals of Ixalan Preview on the TCGplayer Cooking Network.

Here is the summary of cards so far today. 

• Zetalpa, Primal Dawn - Flying, double strike, vigilance, trample, indestructible is a lot of things to pack onto a creature, but given the mana cost, this is acceptable.

• Form of the Dinosaur - someone wrote 15 on a boomerang.

• Journey to Eternity // Atzal, Cave of Eternity - rather nice legendary enchantment to assist in graveyard recursion.

• Ghalta, Primal Hunger - already previewed.

• Tendershoot Dryad - best served with the City's Blessing.

• Kumera, Tyrant of Orazca - uncertain why he is considered a tyrant - seems ok to us.

• Enter the Unknown - decent explore with an extra land drop to accelerate mana.

• Swaggering Corsair - best paired with raid.

• Gleaming Barrie - gleaming treasure.

• Frilled Deathspitter - spits death.

• Secrets of the Golden City - the secret is card draw.

• Dusk Charger - a 5/5 if you have the City's Blessing.
