RTR Spoiler 8

Happy WEdnesday MTG peeeps,

We did take a break from actual Return to Ravnica cards spoiled / previewed in the Izzet vs. Golgari Duel Deck to concentrate on all the amazing new Magic: the Gathering card arts which came out but now we're back on point.  So far we have had a look at Rootborn Defenses and Deadbridge Goliath as well as Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord but we did not yet review the 5 new (6 if you include Jarad) cards revealed in the Izzet vs Golgari Decklist.

Let's have a boo now shall we as in the next post we will want to yatter about the possible Return to Ravnica cycles we may expect.

Street Spasm, xr

Instant, Uncommon
Street Spasm deals X damage to target creature without flying you don't control.
Overload {X}{X}{R}{R}

Overload looks to be a cool mechanic and Street Spasm might be a decent enough card for limited as well as constructed play.

Dreg Mangler, 1bg

Creature - Plant Zombie, Uncommon
Scavenge 3{B}{G}

Lov'n the name as well as the slick art from Peter Mohrbacher.  Scavenge also looks to be a decent new tech and we look forward to seeing this mechanic on other cards.

Goblin Electromancer, ur

Creature - Goblin Wizard, Common
Instant and sorcery spells you cast cost 1 less to cast.

This card's flavour is totally Izzet.  We love this card at common rarity and have great expectations of epic Izzet games with cards like this.

Izzet Charm
, ur

Instant, Uncommon
Choose One - Counter target noncreature spell unless its controller pays 2; or Izzet Charm deals 2 damage to target creature; or draw two cards, then discard two cards.

Another card Wizards produced with big Izzet flavour.  We're still not quite decided as to how well this may be in constructed but we do rather appreciate spells with this many different 'swiss-knife' options.

Korozda Guildmage, bg
Creature - Elf Shaman, Uncommon
1{B}{G}: Target creature gets +1/+1 and gains intimidate until end of turn.
2{B}{G}, Sacrifice a nontoken creature: Put X 1/1 green Saproling creature tokens onto the battlefield, where X is the sacrificed creature's toughness.

This guildmage rocks our Golgari world.  The art from one of our fav artists Ryan Pancoast is a bit weird but we love the pump 'n' intimidate as well as sac 'n' token utility.

Remember to drop by MTG Mint Card for Magic the Gathering singles from not only the Duel Deck but Return to Ravnica as well.
