Innistrad's Liliana

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

If you were directed here to MTG Realm and did NOT want to be treated to Magic the Gathering spoilers and previews, then someone has made a horrible mistake. If you did want to gorge yourself on all the newest Innistrad awesomeness, then please come on in. We decideed to name oday's post Innistrad's Liliana rather the nomenclaturly correct but rather unimaginative 'Innistrad Spoiler 'N', where N equals the number of Innistrad posts since official preview week began.

Listen to us yatter - wow. Anywhoos - here's the juice - check out today's Innistrad previews.

Liliana of the Veil, 1
Planeswalker - Liliana, Mythic Rare

+1: Each player discards a card.

-2: Target player sacrifices a creature.

-6: Separate all permanents target player controls into two piles. That player sacrifices all permanents in the pile of his or her choice.
Illus. Steve Argyle #105/264

Wow - Liliana is cheap! The converted mana cost on this at three instantly makes this playable but before we go all ga-ga, let's look at her abilities. A positive discard is decent, a negative 2 for a critter sac seems a titch too much, and the weird pile sac for negative 6 makes us want to hook up with another PW like Elspeth.

Kruin Outlaw, 1
Creature - Human Rogue Werewolf, Rare
First strike
At the beginning of each upkeep, if no spells were cast last turn, transform Kruin Outlaw.
Terror of Kruin Pass
Creature - Werewolf, Rare
Double strike
Each Werewolf you control can't be blocked except by two or more creatures.
At the beginning of each upkeep, if a player cast two or more spells last turn, transform Terror of Kruin Pass.
"Hold tight. I've got a surprise for them."
Illus. David Rapoza

This double-faced card looks great. It will get a bonus while in human form from the likes of Dearly Departed and will benefit the most with Mayor of Avabruck / Howlpack Alpha. There is a truck load of Innistrad cards yet to be spoiled / preview but we think this already is going to be good.

Fiend Hunter, 1
Creature - Human Cleric, Uncommon
When Fiend Hunter enters the battlefield, you may exile another target creature.
When Fiend Hunter leaves the battlefield, return the exiled card to the battlefield under its owner's control.
Illus. Wayne Reynolds #15/264

Never underestimate the potential shennanigans a creature with a 'enters the battlefield' effect on it (think Leonin Relic-Warder or Venser, the Sojouner). Cards somewhat similar to this like Tidehowllow Sculler saw popular play and we think this may too. What would have made this card better if it were Tidehollow Sculler. Gawd we miss that card.

Pisteur invisible, 1
Créature - humain et gredin
Défense talismanique
Le Pisteur invisible est imblocable.

rougly translated :

Invisible Stalker, 1

Creature - Human Rogue, Uncommon
Invisible Stalker is unblockable.
"What bothers me is the vampire's sense of smell and those icy Nephalian nights."
Illus. Bud Cook #60/264

We kinda choked on a swig of Dr. Pepper when we read the last little bit on the flavour text line. We are really loving it when Wizards drops the funny into the flavour mix. Anywhoos, I so badly want to but a big-arse aura on this like that pseudo-Baneslayer Angelic Destiny and then go to town.

That's it for now, ensure you keep checking back often for updates on our Innistrad Spoiler List.

And now a word about jumping on this upcoming set - we're suggesting getting in your pre-orders ahead of the official release on September 30th next month. Check out the excellent prices at MTG Mint Card here.

Glad to see someone excited for the new cards, a lot of outlets are pretty negative now.
