Rise of the Eldrazi Spoiler 3-09

Good Day MTG fans,

You may recall our post (HERE) where we had shared some Rise of the Eldrazi spoilers with you, more specifically, a bouquet of sealed product images as well as the names of Intro Packs. Well, Wizards now has the Intro Pack images up in the Magic Arcana today (linky here).

Each Rise of the Eldrazi Intro Pack will contain a 41-card deck, 1 fixed foil rare, 1 random non-foil rare, 1 Worldwake booster pack, and a mechanics/rules insert. We imagine that some of these new Foil Rare cards may contain the new (and anticipated) mechanics - -

Annihilate X : When this creature attacks, the defending player sacrifices X permanents.

Level up X
: (pay X, put a level counter on this creature. Level up only as a sorcery) ...Creature has different (progressively better) abilities as it levels up.

Let's have a closer look at these images and start speculating the heck out of it . . .

Leveler's Glory
Foil Rare : Student of Warfare,
Leveller mechanic ? Human Knight ?

Leveler's Scorn
Foil Rare : Surrakar Spellblade 1 or 1
If you are thinking Creature from the Black Lagoon, you are not alone - do NOT go swimming alone.
EDIT (4/20/2010): Wizards made a goof - the foil rare is Sphinx of Magosi.

Invading Spawn
Foil Rare : Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief 3 or 5
Vampire, Legendary - most likely also a pyromaniac.
Eldrazi Arisen
Foil Rare : Conquering Manticore 4 or 4
There are only three other Manticores in Magic, this will be the fourth.

Totem Power
Foil Rare : Gigantomancer 1
OK - so there's this guy - with a pet Praying Mantis. Did we tell you that his pet is also a freak'n 10 foot tall Monster ?
Ok folks, start the wild donkey speculations ! Add your craziness below in the comments.

You can assume that all the cards on which you can see more than one mana symbol have that many plus one, given that the last one is 1G. So Crimson Masticore is 4RR, etc.

....Could Gigantomancer or whatever be Like the flip cards from the Kawi series did.

in the description of the contents of an intro, don't they mean an ROE booster?

In the "creature from the black lagoon" it is definitely a Surrakar, so maybe a tribal, since the only other Surrakar are Blue and Black??
