Rise Eldrazi Spoiler 3-30

Good Day and Happy Tuesday MTG peeps 'n' phreaks.

We will delivering a special post today for you - today's post is sponsored by the colour Green (
!)and today's theme is defender. As we yet unable to figure out the defender theme angle in Rise of the Edlrazi, we will show the new Vent Sentinel the door and ask him to wait outside until we have something new to discuss.

Righto - something new - THEORY TIME - The Eldrazi are NOT a malevolent force bent on the destruction of Zendikar. There are simply very misunderstood Acupuncturists as can be seen in this image. With a little more practise we think the Eldrazi may make a positive contribution to Zendikar's health care system.

Enuff silliness . . onto track with the awesome green cards we've been seeing - don't worry - we'll catch up latter to yatter about the other ones like Angelheart Vial in a latter post.

First Up ->

Khalni Hydra,
Creature - Hydra, Mythic Rare
Khalni Hydra costs {G} less for each green creature you control.

Dang. Butter my burro and call me a biscuit. This thing is gonna be great in mono-green beats. Imagine for a moment, dropping an Avenger of Zendikar on turn seven. Let's count 'em - that's seven 0/1 plant dudes and the Avenger itself - check. You now slide the Hydra in for FREE. We love 'em some tramply beats. ALSO - we want you to consider using this with our little friend Primalcrux whose power / toughness equals the number of green mana symbols in all permanents you control. If you just had the Hydra and Primalcrux out by themselves, we are looking down the business end of a dangerous 14/14 piece of trample nastiness.


Kazandu Tuskcaller, 1
Creature - Human Shaman, Rare
Level up 1{
[Level 2-5] {
}: Put a 3/3 green Elephant creature token onto the battlefield. (1/1)
[Level 6+] {
}: Put two 3/3 green Elephant creature tokens onto the battlefield. (1/1)

OK. This pachyderm-loving Shaman is not expected to see play in standard casual. Why? Because this card really sucks - that's why. Why not run a deck-set of Bestial Menance with Oran-Rief, the Vastwood to top the tokens up - much more economic in our opinion - Please tell us if we are incorrect in this assessment.


Bear Umbra, 2
Enchantment - Aura, Rare
Enchant creature
Enchanted creature gets +2/+2 and has "Whenever this creature attacks, untap all lands you control."
Totem armor

Holy comborific broken card Batman ! Oh yeah - players all over the globe are now doing their best impression of Dr. Evil's maniacal laugh while running through possible combinations with Omnath, Locus of Mana, Hellkite Charger, Thornling, Finest Hour and the like. We personally will place this card on par or better than Amulet of Vigor for getting all those comes-into-play lands orientate the correct way.

That's it for now - y'awl drop back again real soon as we carry on through all the Rise of the Eldrazi spoilers coming down the tubes.
