Rivals of Ixalan Spoiler 12-31

Happy Sunday MTG peeps

It is the very last day of 2017, and we do have some Magic: the Gathering news for you.  Specifically some Rivals of Ixalan Spoilers.  Earlier today, we did talke some art spoilers on our MTG Realm Tumblr page, from The Art of Magic: The Gathering - Ixalan, posted by redditor CaptainKharn, but we don't want to get into that at the moment, we suggest you pre-order that book now over on Amazon.  What we do want you to see are the Rivals of Ixalan spoilers posted by redditor Lapsy_143, who had a total of four cards including the Angry Minotaur Dad planeswalker - 

Angrath, the Flame-Chained, 3BR
Legendary Planeswalker - Angrath, Mythic Rare
+1: Each opponent discards a card and loses 2 life.
-3: Gain control of target creature until end of turn. Untap it. It gains haste until end of turn. Sacrifice it at the beginning of the next end step if it has converted mana cost 3 or less.
-8: Each opponent loses life equal to the number of cards in his or her graveyard.

Angrath seems OK, but perhaps not quite over the moon, which is alright with us.  The +1 is Blightning's younger sibling, and we think fans may have been happier with the full Blightning here given the casting cost.  That -3 is a decent Slave of Bolas text, but then adds the condition of having that critter you just stole to have a cmc of three or less for the sac effect.  That's decent but dang - this is a minus 3 change to the loyalty.  We won't address the minus 8 as Angrath would have left the stage by then.  The other three spoiers are as follows -

Atzocan Seer
River Darter
Thrashing Brontodon
