M13 Spoilers 8

Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

We have for you another installment of Magic 2013 core set spoilers and previews gathered from around the interwebs but mostly from official previews via the mothersite.  Also of note today is some rather interesting M13 tokens also from the mothersite - we'll catch up with these when we have all the cards revealed which generate said tokens in a latter post.  Also (in a latter post), we want to yatter about some rather tantalizing pre-con (pre-constructed) two-coloured decks found in the Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 Expansion.  We're excited (as we're sure most players / gamers are) as this, we feel, is a clear pre-lude to the fall set's Return to Ravnica.  The decks correspond to the Azorius, Golgari, Izzet, Rakdos, and Selesnya guilds.

Anywhoos - onto today's M13 spoilers and previews !

Serra Avenger, ww
Creature - Angel, Rare
You can't cast Serra Avenger during your first, second, or third turns of the game.
Flying, vigilance
Wow - we nailed it in our speculation in yesterday's post.

(translated card from German site - not final)
Touch of the Eternal, 5ww
Enchantment, Rare
At the beginning of your upkeep, your life total becomes equal to the number of permanents you control.

Master of the Pearl Trident, uu
Creature - Merfolk, Rare
Other Merfolk you control get +1/+1 and have islandwalk.

This M13 Merfolk Lord is from -  We have a soft spot for Merfolk as this was our very first Magic the Gathering deck.

Void Stalker, 1u

Creature - Elemental, Rare
2{U}, {T}: Put Void Stalker and target creature on top of their owner's libraries, then those players shuffle their libraries.

This card is filled to the brime with potential shenanigans.

Slumbering Dragon, r

Creature - Dragon, Rare
Slumbering Dragon can't attack or block unless it has five or more +1/+1 counters on it.
Whenever a creature attacks you or a planeswalker you control, put a +1/+1 counter on Slumbering Dragon.

Door to Nothingness, 5

Artifact, Rare
Door to Nothingness enters the battlefield tapped.
{W}{W}{U}{U}{B}{B}{R}{R}{G}{G}, {T}, Sacrifice Door to Nothingness: Target player loses the game.

We're fans, as well as several other fellow casual players we know of alternate win conditions for this game, no matter how silly or difficult the conditions may be.  Perhaps this next card may help to get the player to the finish line.

Gem of Becoming, 3

Artifact, Uncommon
3, {T}, Sacrifice Gem of Becoming: Search your library for an Island card, a Swamp card, and a Mountain card.
Reveal those cards and put them into your hand. Then shuffle your library.

Lastly, check out our friends at MTG Mint Card who now has a very cool early-bird discount on Magic 2013 pre-orders.  This will not last much longer.
