Oath of the Gatewatch Previews 1-06

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

We here at MTG Realm have yet again cast the nets to haul in another daily offering of Oath of the Gatewatch preview cards from around the web for Magic: the Gathering fans.  Today's rares are good, but the consensus here is that they these may have been better placed as Uncommons.  As for the commons / uncommons in today's basket, lets just say that we are definitely looking forward to building a constructed decklist and would also be pleased to get these in limited.  

Another preview out today is Mina and Denn, Legendary Elf Ally, which we had already covered off as this was (unfortunately) one of those leaked cards.  Be sure to drop by the mothersite today as WotC staffer Mel Li has posted a wonderful story in today's Uncharted Realms column, titled 'Reclamation'.

Anywhoos, tick-tock, lets have a look -

EDIT - Late day previews - 
• Hedron Crawler (Ian Duke Preview) - nice 0/1 two-drop tappping for ◊.
• Warping Wail (Top Level Podcast) - 1◊ instant three-choice modal - exile a skinny, counter a sorcery or birth a Scion.

Dimensional Infiltrator, 1U
Creature - Eldrazi, Rare
Devoid (This card has no color.)
1◊: Exile the top card of target opponent's library. If it's a land card, you may return Dimensional Infiltrator to its owner's hand. (◊ represents colorless mana.)

Milleniuim Preview - This one seems ok. Good as a suprise blocker or one to survive a boardwipe.  Alternatively, not a bad method to enable a 'surge' mechanic spell.  Art here invokes the same creepy feeling as those frightening Sentinels from the Matrix.

Bearer of Silence, 1B
Creature - Eldrazi
Devoid (This card has no color.)
When you cast Bearer of Silence, you may pay 1◊. If you do, target opponent sacrifices a creature. (◊ represents colorless mana)

MTG APAC Facebook Preview - We loved Gatekeeper of Malakir when it was in standard, and this card floats our boat too.  Good stats and a very relevant activated ability.  Love the art here - that very brave Kor just snoozing on the cliffside not caring at all about that monstrous Eldrazi.

Other Oath of the Gatewatch previews out today - 

Goblin Freerunner - 3R Goblin Warior Ally with Surge and Menace on a 3/2 body.

Jwar Isle Avenger - 4U flying Sphinx with Surge.

Relief Captain - 3/2 Kor Knight Ally with ETB Support 3 - love to blink this to pump the team while Hardened Scales is out.

Void Crush - 1UU Void counterspell exiling target spell.

Seer's Lantern - 3 cost Artifact tapping for ◊ with a Scry ability.

Gift of Tusks - Just one U to Snakeform a critter into a 3/3 Elephant - neat combat trick on your 1/1 token or use on an opponent's Eldrazi.
