M15 Spoilers 5-27

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

Actually we're employing a prevarication (see the doubting Decreux reference to the right) - it's actually still Thursday at around 9:00 PM (EST) but apparently there was a screw-up on the mothersite and all of Friday's articles were promoted early - which means early Magic 2015 previews for all those Magic: the Gathering spoiler-nutters like us (and most likely you as well since you keep coming here).  

Anywhoos, as you may in all liklihood be reading this on Friday, the point here may be moot.  Make sure to kill two birds with one stone as the barbaric saying goes and head on out to a Friday Night Magic event not only to get your game on but also to socialize (to better fit in with the other humans around you).  We'll be at our local gaming store, OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario, Canada which fortunately has been spared any tornado damage.

'Nuff said, let's get to the new cardboard !
Big news - We've got our rare cycle of lands back in the set, which is awesome since the last core set did not have any.  Last seen print in Tenth Edition, these enemy coloured 'pain lands' might still be found at your local store or online retailer like MTG Mint Card. Enemy colored painlands: Rare dual lands with "Tap: Add 1 to your mana pool. Tap.gif: Add E or F to your mana pool. [This land] deals 1 damage to you." E and F are enemy colors of mana.  The mana in the core set is really weirding us out - Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Sliver Hive, and then these guys.

Battlefield Forge
Land, Rare
T: Add 1 to your mana pool.
T: Add R or W to your mana pool. Battlefield Forge deals 1 damage to you.

Caves of Koilos
Land, Rare
T: Add 1 to your mana pool.
T: Add W or B to your mana pool. Caves of Koilos deals 1 damage to you.

Llanowar Wastes
Land, Rare
T: Add 1 to your mana pool.
T: Add B or G to your mana pool. Llanowar Wastes deals 1 damage to you.

Shivan Reef
Land, Rare
T: Add 1 to your mana pool.
T: Add U or R to your mana pool. Shivan Reef deals 1 damage to you.

Yavimaya Coast
Land, Rare
T: Add 1 to your mana pool.
T: Add G or U to your mana pool. Yavimaya Coast deals 1 damage to you.

Jace, the Living Guildpact, 2UU
Planeswalker - Jace, Mythic Rare
[1] Look at the top two cards of your library.  Put one of them into your graveyard.
[-3] Return another target non land permanent to its owner's hand.
[-8] Each player shuffles his or her hand into hero or her library.  You draw seven cards.

Much meh is contained within this card.
Hushwing Gryff, 2W
Creature - Hippogriff, Rare
Creatures entering the battlefield don't cause abilities to trigger

Not quite standard playable with the exception of perhaps an odd sideboard card maybe.  We would rather just play Torpor Orb.  Modern however, this this is looking good.
Lastly, BDM also had a preview card -

Life's Legacy, 1G
Sorcery, Rare
As an additional cost to cast Life's Legacy, sacrifice a creature.
Draw cards equal to the sacrificed creature's power.

Card draw for green is always most welcome and we see no reason why this won't be popular in standard.
