Scars of Mirrodin PreRelease Promo

Yet another Scars of Mirrodin spoiler today from Japan . . .

This time it is reported to be the Scars of Mirrodin PreRelease promo card - Wurmcoil Engine. Original source is here which was apparently taken from the Scars of Mirrodin Launch Party poster directed to Saitama, Koshigaya City, just a bit north of Tokyo, Japan.

Again, this is not official - the language translation may be a bit off or it may be a complete fake but let's have a look . . .

Original -

6  神話レア
アーティファクトクリーチャー ー ワーム
絆魂 接死

And . .

here is what the translation is thought to be . . .

Wurmcoil Engine, 6
Artifact Creature-Wurm, Mythic Rare
deathtouch, lifelink
Wurmcoil Engine is put into the graveyard from play, put a 3/3 artifact wurm token with deathtouch, and a 3/3 artifact wurm token with lifelink into play.

Wow -
Six colourless mana delivers a truck-load of card awesomeness here and will likely give the M11 Titans a whole lot of trouble when this gets dropped on the game table. There is some confusion just at the moment whether it is a "and" or an "or". This could mean that you could get two 3/3 tokens (a life-linker and one with deathtouch) or just one of your choosing - however it plays it, this will be something rather powerful. Paying six mana for 9 or 12 power on the battlefield certainly will get attention.

Looks like artifacts are gonna rock in Scars of Mirrodin - start planning now.

To say nothing of the clear-as-day Phyrexia symbol watermark. Looks like we've got confirmation on the New Phyrexia subtheme now.

"and" sounds too powerful, but idea that original wurm falls apart on smaller wurms sounds fine.

For the record the card says "and" so if the worm dies you get a 3/3 lifelink and a 3/3 deathtouch = win
